Good morning everybody, have a great day Very Happy

Beautiful sunny and cold weather today, the office population being halved and my databases celebrating succesion day already. Nothing seems to be working my way today.
Tomorrow the Netherlands will watch how Queen Beatrix abdicates in favour of her son. Festivities will start tonight, every pub will be open.
Vicki, watch the news today and tomorrow. Exclamation
It looks like my databases are running again, better get some things done. TTYL.

Good Morning, Friends!

I am writing my menu down for the rest of the week or two (always trying to have something in the freezer in case a fast meal is needed).

We hope to go to Holland and take pictures before the crowds arrive. Tulips are peaking at just the right time. My daughter planted a lot, but was afraid the squirrels had eaten most of the bulbs... more tulips came up than expected. Smile

- I hope to watch as much of the festivities as I can. Is your office closed tomorrow? Yesterday, Holland (MI) had a Queen's Day Criterium (various bicycle races).

Ann - Is there a "critter" boom, or is this normal?

Debbie and Tango - Keeping you in my prayers. How are you doing?

PattiT - How did the move go? Did you have enough help?

Pat, Martha, Patti (gramma), Sheryle, Karen, and anyone I've missed
- What have you been doing?

Hello girls, it is raining and dreary today. The son who gives me a ride to Philly wants to go out to eat today, I really don't feel like going but I feel like I owe him so I will get ready soon to head out the door. I posted a link on Facebook about a fundraiser for Nick and I am hearing from some of his high school friends.
The move went really well. Nothing broken etc. My BIL and my nieces husband (Seth) were a huge help. I rode back with hubby and them, oh my, does Seth every have a powerful truck, I told him it sounded like an airplane taking off at times. There was a huge traffic jam and he knew about it because of an app on his phone. We got off an exit right away to avoid it. Unfortunately my son does not have that app. and was stuck for over an hour in the traffic mess. Something tells me he will be downloading that app. for his phone. We made sure the bed was set up so Nick could take a nap when we left. Tina's brother brought them a sectional sofa and a bedroom set the next day. Then her brother said you need a grill for out back here. Nick said they would love to have a Hibachi, her brother would not hear of it and bought them a top of the line grill. I told Nick I think it suited their style of cooking to have a gas grill instead of using charcoal, he said I was probably right. People now a days don't seem to have the patience to wait for a charcoal grill to be ready.

I read on FaceBook that Debbie is in the hospital again. Last night Tiffany said she was awake and talking so she is doing a little better. I will try to keep you posted.

**Fan, I am loving once again all of your photos. I hope you were able to get your work done today and perhaps leave a little early due to the celebrations.

Vicki, my office and almost everything is closed down tomorrow Very Happy
PattiT, thanks for telling us about Debbie. I'm really worried about her. Glad you got Nick and Tina in their new house so smoothly.
Just mailed my Japanese sis about tomorrow. Reminded her of our visit at Madame Tussaud and the picture of her standing next to the bloke who will be our king. Laughing Laughing I should have introduced her to him back then, cause at the him and I were both students at Leiden University Wink
