We woke up with a lot of storm this morning and infact
it did snow a little bit. Well it was more like hailing, but
anyway the streets were a bit white. We had to go to Jaco's
father who had his birthday on last monday. He is 77 now.

I am still searching for a perfect webcam. I wondered
why some people do have a very sharp vision. I talked to Bob (kansaslife)
about it and one of his cams is a videocamera. You do
have to use a special cable though to use it as a webcam.
I have been experimenting with the antenna today and I see
that it makes a diffrence which direction you are pointing to and where you
put the antennathing. Unfortunately the cord of the antenna is
not so long. But now the view is a little bit sharper then
before. Still you need a lot of light.
At the end of this year I want all computers in the house
to be wireless so then I can put one computer or laptop in the
livingroom. Then the quality of the camview shall be better
because the antenna will be near the cam.

Some people get depressed because of the winter. I don't
know why that is? They say because of the "darkness"
one is getting not enough vitamines. Well anyway in Holland we
doesn't have the winters anymore then they used to be and
there is more sun then darkness. I am getting depressed
because of a lack of snow! This year I can't think of any day
it snowed. That's why I often take a look at the following
site of Lieska
in Finland, there you have some snow!!

Respect for those who are sitting in a wheelchair.
That was the issue of todays lessons at Rajacenna's school.
They all went to a gymhall to learn how to handle a wheelchair.
They tried to drive blind with it and to play basketball with
it. After that they all had to outside to drive with the chair
amongst the pedestrians and traffic. I just was on my way to
the supermarket when I could hear a man screaming from far.
Than I saw 32 children all together in a wheelchair of their
own. I could see it was very hard fo them to drive the thing.
The instructor was a disabled person himself. I asked him how
it had happened and he answered that because of a medical
error his leg had to be amputated. Anyway it was very hard for
the kids and the worst was yet to come. To climb up a little
hill near our home. Later I heared that Rajacenna and some
others had climbed this small hill with the "legcar".
Well I hope for every of these kids that over 50 years or so,
their legs are still walking.

Today I considered that the world isn't as futuristic
and modern as we thought it should be anno 2005. And then I
don't mean the technical aspect of life but the social aspect
of it. Further than this I will not write about it, because in
this world nevertheless you can't even say what you want to say.
The people who screw up for the rest of the world have to
think about this. We are not living anymore in 800 before
Christ it is 2005 now so grow up!

Great we have to change all the channels on the tv again!!
Nice! Nice for the older people amongst us who don't have
a clue how programming works. We have to change all the tv's
and video's in the house. I wonder how they do that in the US?
Since we are a small country with not so many stations?

Jaco's father has turned 77 today. Sunday we go and visit
This evening there was an informationevening for Rajacenna's
new school. After this summer she will go to Highschool for
the first time. Fortunately she was thrilled about this school
and she met some friends from her class too. The school will
take 200 new kids so I am glad it isn't such a huge school.
