Evening photoshoot with Margie (and more)

May 22, 2009

Margie and I went for a walk in the evening sun. We had a mission: try out my new SLR camera. I’m very pleased with the resulting photography. And how I love Flickr! My PC is still busy uploading… we took 300 pictures of which about a hundred passed our judgment.

What do you think?

And I’m happy with it. Went to a nearby park yesterday with Kessie.

Restored balance

March 14, 2009

Okay, I’m almost back. After a few months of too much work and no play, combined with no sporting (painful knee), the revival of a nasty habit (smoking) and hardly any motivation to cook a healthy meal, I seem to have refound a balance.

Two weeks ago I stopped smoking and stopped working long hours. I even took some days off. Today I will be running the 10km CPC in The Hague. As a preparation I have been on a high-protein diet and trained regularly. With results:

last 3 months

last 30 days

Oh I have to leave. The run starts in 2 hours, wish me luck!

If you’re interested in the Dutch language, please visit my new blog DailyDutch. There I will daily post a short audio or video clip about Holland and the Dutch language.

Please let me know what you think.

You can become my colleague

sfk logoThe company I work for (SFK) is looking for a full-time Data Warehouse Developer (m/f).

You should know how to program OO, preferably in Python. Be keen on Linux and open source in general. Know how to handle large databases. Your dutch should be fluent (sorry about that).

They’re nice to me.

What’s the catch? You’ll end up working closely with me 🙂

The question rises: will I be a Linus or a Bill?
