Nice that HRH is paying attention to an ROC school, as they are dealing with some problems and a bad reputation these last years. I am wondering what the patient is doing in a school though...

--

BTW, when is Prof. Mr. Pieter leaving for the Antilles? I believe he was supposed to go there one of these days.

Ah, I just finished a book on the Dutch history of New-Amsterdam aka New-York and I have gotten a weak spot for Peter Stuyvesant, so a nice this ball is a nice way to pay tribute to him and the Dutch past of the city. I wonder if many Dutch descendants attend, like the Roosevelts, Annenbergs, Vanderbilts, Schemerhorn-Schuylers (love that name) etc. But as the ball isn+t a grand affair I suppose these socialites stay at home. WHo organises and finances the ball by the way?

Btw,the Ball is grand enough.Pitty Princess Marilène keeps dressing like a MMS meisje on these occasions,such a beautifull woman,but she misses out on taste for couture in evening wear.

Well, I suppose Ivo Niehe is a safe bet to present the programme. I don´t particulary like his style but he did present the popular concert for HM´s silver jubilee in a nice way too, so....

--

This evening Prof. Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven appeared in daily discussion/entertainment programme ´De wereld draait door´, presented by Matthijs van Nieuwkerk (former editor in chief of newspaper ´Het Parool´). Apparently there are almost 6000 empty churches in The Netherlands, many of which will be torn down.

True,but in the light of the Year of Religious Heritage he also announced earlyer yesterday that he plans to found a fund to safe the most important ones,at least a thousand or so.Churches of all denominations are getting emptyer and emptyer,needs a big hullaballoo to get them full again,on the other hand there are over 450 mosques here now,and that number is a'risen,how the heck do they do that I wonder.
