I'm re-editing old post.
I'll try to do it all at once.

Today is Barbie's 50est birthday.
I walked past the shelves this afternoon and it was amazing how many different barbies are sold and how much clothes.
One of my aunts has the first barbie with a bathing suit.
She doesn't know if it's the real first one, but it's certainly from that time.
She has a striped bathing suit, with golden and black stripes.
My nieces have all sorts of barbies and whenever there's a celebration, they'll get a new set of clothes.
My aunt can't understand why her children won't make the clothes themselves, like she did when she was young.
Barbie has influences generations, and I wonder if I'll ever get a baby girls and if she'll play with barbie too.

Imagine you're thinking spring is around the corner and you wake up in a white world with flakes twirling down.
That was my world this morning.
Slippery roads, warnings for traffic problems and the whole lot.
Will we ever experience spring again?
It's march and the nights are sooooo cold!

Due to a mistake of his coach Sven Kramer was disqualified for the 10 km speedskating.
What a huge disappointment!!
He would have won gold.
I feel so sorry for him.

The new elections will be at june 9th.
The Queen has decided the government will be demissionary, which means they can't take real decisions except just the daily ones.
It goes against the wishes of the prime minister who wanted to push through his plans.
Won't work mister!

After two armed robberies in the same small neighbourhood shoppingcentre the owners have decided to buy cameras.
It was on the local TV.
They hope that it will prevent future robberies and when something happens that the people who did it will be caught easier.
Let's hope it won't happen again.

Heard on the radio about a bicycle repair service that uses a fully equipped bus.
They repair at home.
Sounds very good.
I can repair my own bike, but sometimes I don't have the stuff to do so. Especially not when I'm not at home.

One of the neighbourhood shoppingcentres was confronted with yet another robbery.
Last thursday one of the shops was target of an individual (as far as we know), and today 3 people robbied the bakery.
A couple tried to make them give up and they were hit by a hammer.
Outside someone parked his car in front of their car, so they had to run away. They lost art of the money.
This is the third robbery in a short time in one of the neighbourhood.
The police states that they're conducted by different people.
Well, I feel very unconfortable when I'm in the shops, even though I'm shopping at another part of town.
The old lady I care for was worried too, and she asked me if it was possible to order groceries and have them delivered at home, like in the old days.
