I'm a British mathematician, been in the Netherlands for 35 years ("chercher la femme"). Recently became a double proud grandfather. Have a compulsion, but it's not secret, to want to correct miscarriages of justice involving abuse of science, see Dhamaka's plea

THE 9-11 was my 50th birthday. That's why I use it in my internet name, but English fashion, 11-9. The other part is my surname.

In the "domeinen", former Royal hunting grounds adjoining to Palace 't Loo.

Each time I took a picture with my iPhone it clicked (I should switch that off) and the very large solitary male boar looked up at me and moved a few metres closer. My wife had already fled. Finallly a jogger in a brilliant white jogging outfitt crashed past and the animal decided it was not fun any more.

Stefan Richard (two months ago, just born, extremely angry about the whole thing ... but soon discovered it was not all misery). He's quite a character (Greek macho genes).

September (bis)

This is a brief glimpse at the garden of our real house "Combray" on Bosweg in Apeldoorn.


Flowers and vegetables at our summer-house, aka "the dacha", aka "Ithaca" in Leiden. It's an allotment garden but Dutch people fill their allotments with garden sheds and garden houses as well as garden.
