GMTA,

aaaaaaah, to be awake and at work at this time of the day at another lovely sunny day , ooooops sorry that's somebody else his live .

Yes my fellow BT-ers : it's another rainy day in Holland.
But , who's complaining : my co worker is !!!!
He has to escort a group of schoolchildren ( including his son) on a bike ride of 60 km backhome from schoolcamp .And it takes him 50 km to get there.
I allready offered him my dive mask and snorkel to survive 110km trough the druly rain.

Goodmorning martine, should have congratulated you yesterday !!!
Your worries seem to be over; KLM and Air France are forming an international strategic alliance, so that means discount and appliyng mutual luggage rules .
Isn't live great ???
And the timing is also brilliant , they must read BT to, don't you think?
The dutch newspapers also mentioned a small "ironic" detail: Them sofisticated diplomatic sensitive and incredibly wellbread dutchies gave a special celabration dinner over this alliance !!! O, really ? yes really !! And guess what they did ? They had the food accompanied by only ......Australian wines !!!
Isn't that sensitive ??
I love it when I read a Dumb... thing like that .
O and they responde by mentioning that: "culture could be learned".
yes.

Morning Jos !
Wow folks, nice sunset shots yesterday. As you know I always enjoy to look at them while having my morning coffee.
How stange I didn't hear about this strategic alliance KLM/Air France... You are better informed than I. I must confess my airline rather keep secret the informations to her staff. Newspapers or TV give the infos faster :o)
Anyway, perhaps next time I could travel Amsterdam Bonaire with 50% discount :o) I know, you will kill me hearing that.
Australian wines ? I never tasted them but they might be as good as Californian or South African ones. Anyway, all their vinestocks are french origin, so I don't feel frustrated :o)
Time for me to prepare myself for work. I'll be on duty the whole week end till monday evening.
Is Nicole feeling better today ?
Have a nice day.

Goodmorning martine.

just called her to ask her how she's doing , and she's feeling fine .
We took a tape mesure yesterday to check her scar length: exactly 100mm ! Pretty cleve surgeon what?

anyway , I also loved the sunsets yesterday.
About them ATK - guys : did anybody notice the fellow on the right standing with his full flipper on the bottom?

Well , lucky I couldn't make it to the cam .probably would have goofed up myself.

Dang gotta run 1 minute warning for a meeting and its a 3 minute walk.

Good Morning Jos and Martine! Jos I am glad that your wife is getting better everyday. Martine, almost time to fly to Bonaire! Australian Wines are wonderful, my favourite is BIN 555 (Shiraz) from Wyndham Estate Winery if you are interested in trying. Do you get any Ontario wines overseas?

I guess I have to send more sunshine to Europe1.

Eileen thanks for capturing first light of day on bon.I allways love 'em , a bit like a old "grainy"black and white picture.

I feel sorry for You martine , do you really have to fly to Bon???

BTW , is it my lack of typing-skills or do pieces of the words I type disappear on their way to BT ???
geez, translation: cleve means clever Dh.

Eileen , a small hint ;-)))

don't tell :
~~a"frenchie " to try foreign wines
~~a german to try foreign beers
~~ a dutchie to try foreign cheese
~~ BTW , how's the "grass"doing?

have a great day.
sjoss

Morning all. Ha ha! Jos, that happens to me too sometimes. It is a delayed reaction on the keyboard, so I try to remember to read before posting. LOL. Annie B.

good morning annie.

Nice fishie.
Typing is even worst than you think : I DO check before posting. I have , for ergonomic reasons, one of those "split typing boards" .Sometime my fingers are fighting to get across to the other side of the board.

Hey Jake , if martine is really flying to Bon , you have to keep her to her promise !!!
The cam really needs a good cleaning !

SO , for the next couple of weeks the cam will be cleaned at least twice a day , right martine???;-)

Got a nice teaser for you all:
45 minutes from now: .......WEEKEND!!!1

Sjosssssssss

Good morning, all.
I'll complain about the weather, too. We're having rain all weekend. I'm headed to Baltimore for a lacrosse game, and the prediction is heavy rain and wind. I must be crazy.

Annette, Barry is getting better all the time. i think we can start taking walks in the evening, should be good for both of us. i hope he will have a total successful story.. he just has to be very careful while he heals. he sees the doc again June 12th.. hope will be able to scuba and ride horses and mow the yard, etc by July. for now he is taking it easy and healing.

Hi all, I am back home, and we had our dinner.
Sherry, nice to hear so good news from Barry.
Well, I think I have to prepare something special to appear on the reef cam, I think I got an idea... but nothing as a left banner.
I got the confirmation, Air France and KLM joined their forces. VERY GOOD NEW FOR ME ! Bonaire, here we are twice or three times a year...
Well folks, it has been a quite hard day, time for me to say goodnight. Still reading Jules Verne before falling asleep. I just started a not so known novel : Robur the Conqueror. Great.
So nighty night, see you tomorrow morning. Ugh, they said on the TV meteo report we'll have a rainy and chilly week end. Yikes !
Don't forget to post the sunset pics... :o)

I understand Annie, I have to get up early too cause I am working tomorrow. I wish Trev will be OK. Back pain is awful.
I am popping out while playing spider solitaire ( it helps ! ). I particularly love mixing the four colours. I am winning this game and just go back to bed. It seems it is quieter there...
Look, this is for you : Beautiful sunset and a filefish. Good night Annie, catch you tomorrow.
