I always find I do better at billiards after I've had one or two drinks. After that I start to suck at it as badly as if I'd had none!

I've got to agree with you. Some say alcohol makes you lose concentration which may be true for activities such as driving where you need to focus on multiple things at once. Billiards requires concentration on a single activity, and the beer will...

Thank you Lori! I've been soaked wet today by a north sea storm though I had a lot of fun exploring the beach.  (Posted from a limited WiFi)

Wow, kudos to you for recognizing that! I do like your photo..even if the weather is gloomy.   Wouldn't mind seeing some pics of the dog.

Thank you Lori. I didn't recognize the scenery at first glance, but got reminded of it by seeing it a friend's laptop.   And here's a photo of the dog, hopping backwards when the waves come near. It's not ours though, we take him out on occasion...

That's a nice arrangement: minimal responsibility, maximum fun. Good-looking dog, too!

Hehe it's indeed a win-win situation. We can experience the fun of going out with a dog, the dog doesn't have to go to a shelter, and so the owners can go away safe and sound.   It's a German Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix. One of his eyes is blue...

Just a small note that I'm on vacation to Texel (Dutch island) for a week. I'll check the internet from time to time, but nothing excessive. See you all on or after 26-9 for more ramblings and such!

As I told in my last post here, last month I went on vacation for a midweek to the Dutch island Texel. I forgot to take good pictures since I walked the dog a lot, nothing I took is relevant enough to post here. I did however notice that the...

Today, after another game of billiars I decided to go on a quick hiking at the river called the 'Niers' which is the Dutch river coming from eastern Europe, that will eventually split up into the 'Maas' which is an important industrial shipping...

I'm currently enjoying a game of billiards in combination with a good Dutch glass of beer. Seems to be a perfect combination for a game that heavily relies on concentration and focus. Although I didn't win, I sure made some nice moves after 4 weeks of...

Tonight we went to a party with the family (and a friend) to an American-style 2 hour AYCE buffet restaurant. It was like having 5 different restaurants under 1 roof. Which means it's BIG for Dutch standards. There's a steak house, pizza, a soft drink...

I got to visit the Dutch beer brewery from Hertog Jan in Arcen for a guided tour. Anyone reading this blog might know that I'm very familiar with this brand of beer. Basically, the brewers here showed the common process of how to brew beer from start...
