Friday I bought a new webcam and today I was
experimenting with it. It's a Logitech Quickcam Cordless. That
itself is very handy without any wire so you can put it
anywhere in your house where you want it. But the sharpness is
terrible! Although the panoramaview which I wanted is very
good. When you put the camera near the antenna it works quit
fine but when you put it further away the sharpness disappears.
The cam needs a lot of light too.

We went to the 18th birthday of Jaco's cousin. He took
his first drivinglessons this morning. (Other then the age of
16 in the USA when you may start carlessons: absurd. Absurd
because children of that age aren't aware of danger they think
they can live for ever!) His sister had to do the drivingexam
the day before and she failed for the fourth time. It was a
very misty day on friday so that was bad luck. We also saw
Julia again which had to get botoxinjections last week; now
her feet were in plaster bandage for two weeks. She found it
all very interesting herself and everything went well.

Rajacenna has won a Nintendo Gameboy Advanced SP with
a new donkey kong game with it today!
Again we won something!! Great! A couple of months ago we
participated a contest from a coconutbreadcompany. The company
exists 50 years and so they organized a celebrationcontest.
Which implied that you could make a selfmade structure or
drawing or whatever you like that express the 50 years
celebration. So I invented the idea of making the little house
of the fairytale of Hans Cristian Andersen "Hans en
Grietje and the witch". I wanted to change the story of
the candyhouse into a coconutbreadhouse. Jaco and
Rajacenna constructed the whole house.

Today Rebecca's mother got burried. She proved to be 46
year old. It seems that at her work she accidentally had
incurred a toxic (asbestos) into her lungs. I wonder how that
got there because she was working as a pedagogical employee.
They say she had entered an envirement with forbidden access
but that wasn't made clear because there was no
The Citotests are finished too. Although Rebecca
missed some of the tests; she arranged it with the teacher so
she could do the tests afterall.

From now on we can make our home totally
bacterium-free! Just as Michael Jackson! I don't know if that
makes me happy but if you have an allergy it should be nice.
We won an aircleaner value € 500,-. I'd rather had the money
but maybe we can sell the thing on the internet.

Today in Holland the national citotoets starts. With this test children in last grade of the
primaryschool (12 years old) become a test for everything they learned so far. It gives them a good view of the possibilities for the future, because it gives children (and parents) a grade
which school they can attend from now. Rajacenna was'nt
nervous about everything and she thought she did well enough.
