Mini-merry Crimbo-Christmas village!

We popped into the local (huge) garden center to get some stuff for the
garden and they have tons of Xmas stuff (yeah, already) but this Winter
Wonderland was just fantastic!
Imagine having the job of building this kind of thing up each time!
These tiny houses and things are all for sale, pretty expensive to set up a
big show like this but beautiful all the same.

Bond Bug finds a new home in Holland

(viewed 4871 times)
We really do transport EVERYTHING (except Walrusses, FF)
This Classic '70s Bond Bug went to a very happy young raddish farmer in the south east of the Netherlands from its original home in Northhampton.
He already has a Reliant Robin and was chuffed to bits with his latest acquisition this morning.

Bridge's up!

(viewed 1077 times)
South side of Rotterdam. Not allowed through the tunnel there (Botlek) with hazardous loads so have to leave the motorway just before and use this old bridge.
It's quite an interesting construction, all counter weights and laws-of-physics stuff going on there.
Extremely smooth operation too.

Well that was pretty darn convincing!
Now all you need to do is just try not to let him get shot eh?
Blazing Saddles was way ahead of its time and there's a new sheriff in town!

Starters Day, Dutch Chamber of Commerce

(viewed 1108 times)
The Boetster & I are spending the day learning about how to go about starting our own business.
Once a year they hold this "Starters Day" in a number of congress centres throughout the country.
We've sat through a couple of seminars and managed to stay awake, so far. The one on income tax and VAT was particularly "taxing".
A few questions answered, a few more questions created.
Lots to do still before I place my order for my first Bentley.

Maggie's book royalties

(viewed 1408 times)
The royalties check arrived from "Blurb" this morning!
Only about six months late, but still. Hooraaaay!!
Maggie's drawings have earned €157.00 (so far) for the Elimination of Leukaemia Fund.
Here's the LINK to the original post, if anyone's not sure what this is about.

The book's still available, the link to Blurb's bookstore is on the post at the end of the above link.

Now I just have to figure a way of getting this to the ELF account without incurring huge international transaction costs. It's a personal check, can I just cash it over the counter at any bank? does it have to be RBS? then I could just pay it back over the counter into the ELF account.
Any suggestions anyone?
(it's been ages since I've had to deal with a paper check)
