Breathtakingly wonderfull


HM Queen Máxima opened a conference on trans-gender healthcare at the VU University,Amsterdam last week.
Taking  tabu's right on, some other areas of the Globe we see "discussions" on wheteher or not
one can relief her/him/it-self on the proper loo...How utterly utterly rediculous that seems to all of us here in NL.

No doubt we are all aware what happened in Paris last night.A night of terror,death,pain,sorrow.A night of reveille,a night of enough is enough.
A night to stop talking uttering words everybody has forgotten in a week from now,no.Act!It is time to act and cut this ulcer from the planet once and for all.

Deepest condolences and symphaty to France.

News Links / Russian aircraft crash in Sinai desert this morning
« on: October 31, 2015, 11:49:49 AM »
A Russian aircraft A-321 of Kogalimavia crashed this morning in the Sinai desert shortly after take-off from Sharm-el-Sheik airport killing all 224 passengers and crew.
It was confirmed the crash was due to technical problems.Not a first for this airline as the Russian Aviation Inspection issued a warning to them last year march as well.
Still,the lack of service,safety and sheer ignorance by the owner have now cost the lives of too many innocent people,again.

My sincere condolences to all those affected by this new disaster.
