The people that were filming the cat who was trying to reach the bottom of a big vase were all laughing, as he, or she, was struggling with the pounds around the middle :). But if the cat was mine – I wouldn’t have laughed that loud, or he might get offended 😉

Have you ever been tired from politics? And I am not talking about the autumn dip rearing up his ugly head. I am talking about the continuous talks in the newspapers, and on TV about how much – (18 billion), the Dutch government needs to cut, and who – (which part of the population)’s going to be worst off. And, what are the consequences? Do read the following page on the RationalScepticism.org site in order to understand what’s been going on in The Netherlands for more than 3 months since the last election.
And let me be clear about one important point – I am very upset about the choice of 1.2 Million people in The Netherlands that voted for the PVV of Geert Wilders. (Click on the name’s link to see Geert Wilders, and read more about him). And even more upset that it seems to be the trend everywhere in Europe lately.
Nothing, and no one can change my mind about one very important thing – there are dark powers being busy to spread hatred among different believes, and nations. The question is – why after repeated history over and over again – people remain blind, and deaf, and ready to commit the same insanities all over again?
How many TV commercials have something so special that people are enticed to share it with their friends? Let’s be hones – a very few, right? Well, the following TV commercial for the Samsung Galaxy 580 is the newest Online – YouTube BUZZ to hit the Net… And I can only congratulate the creators in the marketing departement of Samsung 😉 And yes, the girl is cute, and the dance is catchy 🙂
This could be a perfect daily motto for some – “Good things come to those who wait,” and I often catch myself thinking and acting this way too. However isn’t this a way to keep it up, even if you know that there is very little chance the things will suddenly change for the better? At times, the little things can help us to broaden our horizon, and see that we are almost there indeed… Just like the tiny ladybug in the next photo – almost there, flying free…
At 8:30 p.m. today, RTL4 TV channel in the Netherlands will transmit a special interview with Joran van der Sloot taken by John van den Heulvel and Bert Huisjes voor the Dutch newspaper The Telegraph. In it, among other things, he has been stupid enough to admit that he did con the family of Natalee Holloway, and has been paid $25 000 USD for revealing where her body is. And while the payment was done by the lawyer of Natalee’s family he fled to Peru, where you all know he has been incarcerated in the Castro Castro prison for the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez. After viewing the interview tonight I will add more info to this post.
In the interview Joran didn’t want to speak about what happened with Stephany Flores Ramirez. He would only answer the judge in regards, and mentioned that it will be against his interests to say whatsoever regarding the case than, and there.
John van den Heulvel kept asking him doesn’t he feel any remorse regarding the pain he is causing to Natalee Holloway’s family with his silence, or the pain of the family of Stephany Flores. Joran answered that he does feel the pain of the family of Stephany Flores. And also for the family of Natalee Holloway, however, he doesn’t have anything new to say in regards of her disappearance. Joran does feel remorse for his decision to cheat on the Holloway family about his knowledge of the whereabouts of the body of Natallee in exchange for money.
Joran has lost some weight during the 3 months in the Castro Castro prison in Lima, Peru. He did look confident, and sure of himself. He did state that he can control his emotions pretty well. He hopes that soon he will be placed together with the general population of inmates in the Castro Castro prison, because he is not able to do any exercises and sport, or get enough air outside while in the special security part of the jail where he is since he became an inmate. Twice a week he is also giving English lessons to some of the guards. When asked how he spnds his time Joran answered that he is reading a lot. And when asked what he is reading is answer was – spiritual books, and about eternal life. Kind of weird as Joran does not live and act like a spiritual person – does he?? Joran also said that he is meditating…
He also knows that if he ever gets out of the Castro Castro prison, he will be transferred ASAP to the USA, and that he risks 50 years in jail for the extortion of cash from the Holloway family.
Will keep you updated about Joran van der Sloot when there is reliable news to write about.
