    Drezy thinks Jack refers to himself third person as a writing flourish sometimes.
    (Like I just did)

    A very talented linguistics professor once said something, half jokingly, like "Don't bother trying to speak the Dutch language to the Dutch. They don't want to hear your attempts. They speak English. In fact they probably even speak English better than you."

    I just love that question so much - it makes me laugh!

    I am pretty positive that Jack is answering these questions himself ....but he does refer to himself as Uncle Jack lately and Drezy is spot on!

    I dunno - maybe he has a google assistant?

    Don't ever, ever underestimate Jack - he is in complete control around here. He is a very busy man these days ...and he has a huge amount of stuff on his plate.

    Keep asking questions Hilde .....that is how we all learn!

    Have you read the thread that Jack posted? ......The importance of newbies.....

    Hilde - you are very important ...thanks for being you and being here.

    Hi all,

    Autumn has arrived in the Netherlands :(
    Rain rain rain and thick clouds.......
    Me sitting in the rain with umbrella and boots on, starring at a grey sky.

    These last days there was no visible sunrise and sunset where I live only grey sky, and
    I wonder if I will have any benefit from the sunset and sunrise when it is so overcast.
    It's so discouraging. I really mis the sun.

    You will, as opposed to the light you get indoors.
