The Last Time

Ten years ago today, I checked in Caesar`s Palace in Las Vegas.

Seventeen years ago today, we moved in nr. 24.

The Visitors and the Hounds of Love have finally left me.

Everything about the old blog was wrong....

All I was looking for seven years ago is gone.

The city has a new meaning.

Everything I knew was wrong.

Easter 2014

A great day at my parents' house, thanks be to God.

The secret code for today is: 202-87-202

 O Jesus Christ, my Master,
I come to Thee to-day;
I ask Thee to direct me
In all I do or say:
I want to keep my promise
To be Thy servant true,
I come to Thee for orders;
Dear Lord, what shall I do?

I want a heart not heeding
What others think or say;
I want a humble spirit,
To listen and obey.
To serve Thee without ceasing,
'Tis but a little while,—
My strength, the Master's promise,
My joy, the Master's smile.

New Nephew Coming Up


My brother and I had diner this evening. When we passed the Musuemplein, underway to the restaurant, it was transformed in Fort Knox for the arrival of President Obama tomorrow. He'll visit the Rijksmuseum.

UPDATE: It looked like this when he arrived.
