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.

Dolphins in the Queen's Chamber at Knossos

Another motif in the card, and a favourite motif in Minoan art (pic nicked from internet, image credits - but I have been there myself, too).

"The dolphin is a symbol of joy, of being able to go with the flow of life, free from worry. It is significant that they are mammals that live in water because water and the oceans are symbolic of our deeper emotions and the cosmic ocean of life. Dolphins play, leap, twist and turn in these waters, and so as a symbol they represent the ability for us to release limitations, and then accept and enjoy our deeper spiritual nature. Dolphins do not dwell on the meaning of life, they simply live life to the full as a part of the cosmic dance" Holistic Shop.

Actually, real dolphins also do many mean things, but that is not part of their symbolism for us humans.

Yes, that's what I like about it too. Also, very sensitive to nature. In their heyday, the palaces and temples have no defensive works around them. They traded with Egypt.
