A lot can happen in one week… One of the most important things I ask myself every morning is whether the sun is shining. Are we going outside or are we staying inside today? Sometimes important decisions are made. Do I continue on Joomla (the program that I used to make my site), or do I switch to Wordpress? Will it be Kenzo or Willem? Difficult choices… I'll explain them briefly

Regine is going to look at a kitten this week (probably already today). It will be a red-haired Maine Coon, a male. We do this for Jambo, our other Maine Coon so that he has a play mate. A Maine Coon is said to be a cross between a lynx and a raccoon, which at least explains why they are so large. I don't know if it's true. There are several ways to look at this issue.

Kenzo is the name given to him by the breeder, but if it is up to me, he will continue his life under the royal name Willem.

This name suits a male Maine Coon better than a female Cockapoo. That Cockapoo is also soon to arrive by the way... maybe we'll call her Kenzo…

Unfortunately, the plan with my artificial eye got a little ruined, it is brown instead of red. Perhaps the colour can still be adjusted. We'll see.

The next piece of news is that I am creating a new site, based on Wordpress. It doesn't seem to be much different from Joomla but it will be more simple and modern than my current site though. In addition, it will also be friendlier for telephone use, as 70% of all visitors view the site on a mobile device.

I will also add some new photos and I will try to write a story about the how/what/where with several photos, just like I did with the photos on Dibond.

I still have a large supply of photos on Dibond that were once used in an exhibition. Some of those will not appear on the new site, so if you want you can buy them with a nice discount! If I whet your appetite , please send us a message!

Some other news: Years ago in Reade I promised some guys that we would meet again on Dam Square in Amsterdam on 10-10-2022 at 10.10 am by way of a reunion.

Those guys were the staff of Reade the "Vue" and the ones who looked after me at that time. I was curious what they would look like 10 years later, whether they would be with or without a partner, with or without children. I was just curious how their lives would turn out.

Like Nienke, who at the time was only allowed to empty the trash cans and brush my teeth (which she was excellent at, by the way); Has she become a doctor yet? Things like this pique my interest, and those 10 years have flown by. I'm now trying to find everyone to invite them again, just in case they forgot our appointment.

I'm still looking for some people whose names I've forgotten, so if you read this, please contact me. That would be great! Then I can start planning a nice get together, like having coffee together in a place that is easily accessible for a wheelchair or pram. One person I am still looking for is Merel, an activity counselor in Reade, with whom I had especially nice conversations. I am also still looking for a sister from the Vue, whose name I have forgotten, but with whom I had excellent conversations especially at night. Please check in! I would love to see you again! So you see... a lot can change in a week, but also in 10 years.

It is time to close this blog. If everything goes well, I'd love to see you again on Wordpress. Of course my domain name will remain usable, there will be a new site with the old name, so you can use the same log in information.

Have a nice day and see you soon! Regards, Adri & Bente
