HM The Queen will present the Royal Award for Free Painters at the Royal Palace,Amsterdam,friday october 8th.
This,if any event,is among the most favorite by HM,an accomplished artist herself.

This Royal Award for Free Painters award was instituted by King Willem III in 1871.

And,thank goodness the Award ceremony is back where it belongs,the Royal Palace Amsterdam as it was for years
in The Hague due to our magnificent Palace here being renovated.
The exhibition of the Free Painters works opens on saturday october 9th for the general public untill november 7th.

HM will attend the 10th Remembrance meeting for the victims of senseless violence organised by the Remembrance Day for Victims of Violence Foundation,Doetinchem this morning.

It is the day we here remember the "useless violence" and its victims.Murdered in the streets for the silliest reasons,and perpetrators almost always getting away with nearly zero punishment.The Dutch judicial system is an absolute farce and I am all for Capital punishment as nothing else scares the next nut off.Its really way too idiotic to see what the judges rule these days.And then Dutch prisons.They are like holiday homes with flatscreen tv and all kinds of goodies that makes me want them to return to water and bread.Medieval?The twits that commit these crimes,THAT is medieval and should be punished accordingly.

Not that it shows much...,but I think this particular subject gets me going as my own grandfather was shot on the street while having a walk on august 30th 1968.I never forget,nor forgive.The guy got away with 2 years in a mental institution,from my tax money,and after that period was allowed weekends home..........and then one sunday,I never forget,he came to our house requesting or he was allowed to take care of my grandfathers vault.Really....ofcourse he wasn't......As if that is normal.It is not,and it should be dealt with severely.It's also the silliest of things to organize yet another silent walk instead of preventing these things from happening.

Queen Beatrix swore in Eugene Holiday as Governor of St. Maarten and Frits
Goedgedrag as Governor of Curaçao on September 30, 2010. The swearing
in took place at Palace Huis ten Bosch in the presence of the wives of the
governors.
The appointments go into effect on October 10 when the Netherlands Antilles
is officially dismantled and Curaçao and St. Maarten become separate countries
within the Kingdom. The swearing in is historical, because St. Maarten never
had its own governor.

And today's event:


Queen Beatrix attended the ceremonial presentation of the 1800 commemorative
medals to soldiers of the Task Force Oeroezgan at the Bossche Brabanthallen in
’s-Hertogenbosch, October 1st.
Nearly 1,800 soldiers received a commemorative medal for their efforts during the
ISAF mission in the Afghan provinces of Uruzgan and Kandahar.
