Cool gratitude...

Freezing their butts off by minus 25 degrees Celsius... German bullets flying around your head, stuck in a fox hole in the forrests in Belgium, seeing your buddy get his throat getting shot out by the jerries... No supplies coming in...

Enormously big amount of respect and gratitude for the men that fought for our freedom, 66 years ago now... To get a idea of the situation, watch Band of Brothers episode 6 - Battle of Bulge...
Let us never ever forget...!!!

Cool forrest finds...

With 2010 coming to an end, greatest radio show of the Top2000 (the 2000 best pop songs ever... best listened to through www.radio2.nl) on my headphones, commuting to work with public transport again...
Due to slippery roads after some more snow and the freezing tempratures... Thinking of the song 'The worker' by Fisher-Z...
"...hate that journey on the train..."
I'm ready for walks in the forrest with my woman in spring, come on give me some good weather again...!!!

Cool and Rusty desert findings...

Here is another one for the 'Cool & Rusty' label... Found it somewhere on the world wide spiders web net or something like that...
Just love these picas but I think you might have noticed...

Cool ride again...

The woman of the little flower shop in front of the building I work in (she rides as well): "You are so brave (or crazy) to ride in this weather..."
Yeah it was a bit nippy and slippery but we made it to work and back in one piece... The fallen snow now turned into plaques of ice on sidewalks and roads... Mmm..., always keep your cool...!!!

Cool Santa ride...

Last night I ran into this beauty... Is Santa already in town...? Or...?
Maybe it's a good idea for me as well, riding with a third wheel when there is ice and snow around...

Merry Christmas all...!!!

Cool islands...

%$&@#, yeah I really had it with the bloody snow...! Tuesday, in the car I got stuck 4 times... And no, no shovels in the car...

I'm in desperate need of some nice summer weather like in this pica above... Nice cool cocktail in my left hand, in my right had my lovely woman, our kids having fun in the sun... O, sorry... just dreaming...!

Cool snow pica...

So, last Friday... No busses in Amsterdam, had to walk to catch a tram towards Central Station... Total chaos @ Central Station... Found a train that was going towards I wanted to go...
Arriving @ Haarlem Station... Chaos... No busses, heavily snow... Had to walk home...
After a hour of trying to make my way home trough the bloody snow, I arrived home finding The Young Geisha looking different then that morning...
I'm in need of some warm summer weather..., had enough of the freaking bloody snow...!!!

Cool snow chaos...?

Total choas on the Dutch roads... seems that public transport in Amsterdam is down... Looks like I'm walking back to train station (approx. over an hour) and then I'll have to see if the trains are still riding...

Cool green men...

Ran into this pica in the archives... Loads and deepest of respect for the men in green that came to Europe's rescue in the second world war... Been reading about the battle of Bulge, my god minus 18 to minus 25 degrees, Jerries bullets flying around your head and the only thing you can hide in is a 'foxhole'... Next spring I will go to Belgium to pay my respects to the ones who didn't make it then...

Cool findings...

Found this pica of this abandoned motorcycle on the net... It's been ganging out there for quite some time, just look at the front tire...
The first thing that popped into my head was... "Cool undercover"

Cool Wall-Art

Just imagine you're working in an office based in an old school... On the walls there are some pieces of art painted... One of them is this one above... Me thinks this is a cool piece of Wall-Art...

Cool mobile shot...

Yesterday in the afternoon, after decorating the tree, we went outside for a little walk in the neighbourhood... Cold wind, snotty noses but a nice sun peaking through the clouds...
On the waterfront of our local lake I couldn't resist making thisone, and I can't resist bothering you with it... Took thisone with my mobile phone...
Not a bad quality me thinks... So here is your Sunday Special for this week...

Cool busy biking Saturday...

video

Last Saturday it was quite busy in our town... loads of angels and other bikers... They were here to escort an Angel called Rob to his last resting place... He was short a week before...
It was impressive to see so many bikes in a row...

Cool under the tree...

It would be great to find presents like these old beauties under our Christmas tree...

Cool left-overs...

Found this pica on the net... Any means left at Duinkerke in WW2... In the background traces of a battleground...

Cool flash forwarders...

I found thisone on the Net, it's a good example of what I'm thinking of these days... Summer!!!
In a small and white world (foggy and covered with snow), I'm longing for summer... No more slipping and sliding, just cruising around at ease...

Cool Young Geisha...

The girl from Nippon has a little winters break... Going nowhere... Roads slippery like speed skating ovals in the morning, wet in the afternoons and frozen again during the evening/night... Bugger mate!... Damned public transport...

Cool destination...

Due to the weather, frozen side walks and streets, I had to take the public transportation to work... Traveling through a small world (very foggy!), to work takes me three times longer then when I take The Young Geisha there... Here is a foggy pica of the building I work in...
Whilst I was sitting in the bus and looked outside, these words came up: 'Fogging hell mate!'
