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.

Thanks! Aren't they beautiful? My daughter-in-law's from Crete. My son is half English half Dutch (and that half Dutch is quarter German among other things). A melting pot.

I'm sure you're very proud of them and yes, they are all beautiful. Your grandson looks very, very young there!

Europe is a wonderful melting pot for nationalities - long may it continue!

"klein geluk" or "small happiness" is a Dutch phrase for those little things in life which make you happy, which are the _real_ things, the things which count, of course. But which we tend to forget.

"jong geluk" or "young happiness" usually is used to refer to young people just fallen in love.

So I use both phrases with double meanings.
