    My friend is turning one tonight at 12, so probably gonna get wasted :)

    This is the 3rd sunny day in a row in south florida. Before then, it rained every day since June 1st I believe. I am actually going to play some soccer today (I hope).

    Exact opposite here. Two weeks ago you couldn't do much besides sweating, last week was still warm but now it's raining more then in the entire winter.

    I run a lab that tests all petroleum products-jet fuels, diesels and gasolines (and check the internet every hour)

    We had 17 days in June above 30C--86 F--we haven't had any real rain since the middle of May--all the grass is in Incubation mode--yellow and hard

    You get to burn stuff? Cool! :p

    I'm a compensation consultant - going in-house to a firm in New Jersey so I will be moving from Chicago in a few weeks.

    We'd love a little rain--in fact 10 days of rain would be good

    I just go to school. Not right now obviously, enjoying my well deserved vacation after a year in which I almost finally screwed up. I guess someone up there really likes me.

    A well, enough thinking about school for this vacation. Off to some more beer. :D

    Hello all :)

    I read the Dutch forums because I like De Graafschap. They play in blue and white hoops; the same as my local team, Greenock Morton. For this reason, some Morton fans have a soft spot for the Superboeren. There's even a website run by a Dutch fan in Morton that puts news on De Graafschap and FC Zwolle into English: http://dutchhoops.blogspot.com

    Oh, this wasn't meant to be football related, was it? :D

    Well, I'm 22, I just graduated from university in Glasgow, and I've done nothing much today except go jogging, eat a lot, and play video games :D I really need to find a job ;)

    I'm at work at the moment. Working for a market research company called TNS in West London.

    I have a great view of the Wembley stadium building site.

    Life is great except the missus can't fall pregnant. :mad:

    She needs an operation for this in August. Her tubes may be blocked. So hopefully all will be OK then. :)

    Rain here which I hope will not interfere with my football match tonight.

    Our dog got hit by a car Monday night, I think that he will be put to sleep today, maybe not. :(

    My mother is from Westchester, IL and has lived in Jersey for 30 years now. She has fit in quite well, I think.

    25, retired as a hardcore football supporter and starting somewhat of a normal life :D Once a mod, but this is much more fun.

    Currently hopelessly in love with the cutest little thing I ever laid my eyes on. Happy to say she feels the same way, shame she sort of has a boyfriend though. Somewhat of an awkward situation, but I'm quite sure it will work out fine. That's all I'm occupied with atm actually :rolleyes:

    I guess I'll introduce myself too.

    I'm 28 and work for my family's business (www.heeremacompany.com). I'm into genealogy and family history, hence my username, but truthfully only 3/8 of my ancesters come from Friesland (St. Annaparochie/Dronrijp), the other 5/8 come from Zuid Holland (Spijkenisse, Katwijk) and Groningen (Uithuizen).

    Congrats on finding love AFCA, I just got engaged myself about a month ago. I'm getting hitched May 13th.

    I resigned :)

    Well there's going to be some trouble for sure, since the guy she's with is part of a pretty large group of people we frequent parties with, so I'm not congratulating myself until everything's handled.

    Congrats Frieslander!
