Goodbye Nokia; Hello Google Nexus S, Samsung Galaxa S or HTC Desire HD

Yes, you saw that right. Apple is missing. I know; the things they make are gorgous. The appliances they bring us rock the world and the quality is generally good, but when something is really "hot" I kindda don't want to have it and feel part of the lucky masses for "having it too". Also the Blackberry is missing. I never really felt for those small keyboards and that big appliance in your hand. So with some disappointment in the heart I am going to say goodbye to Nokia.

There are a thousand to many Belgium Chips Take-out shops

According to the National Alliance for Frituristen (NaVeFri) Belgium there are currently about 5,000 specialised French Fries shops in Belgium. That's a thousand too many, says the association. Don't mistake the Belgium French Fries with those you find at McDonalds and other fast food restaurants. Belgium "friet" is something else; cut out from fresh potatoes.

I am not sure if this movie will hold for a long time, so I downloaded the complete movie just in case. The Belgium navy on board the frigate "Louise-Marie" who just spent 4 months on mission in the fight against piracy in the front of the Somalian Coast, put together a playback movie based on Queen's "Don't stop me now".

I can't believe it. Our little town, beautiful and serene place, has been shocked and rocked by a murder late last night. The employee - a Bulgarian girl only 23 years old - from one of Lommel's nightshops was shot 6 times and died on the scene. What's happening to our world?

Breaking up 2.0: The impact of new (social) media

When a love relationship seems to have come to an end, a number of rituals take place. Besides throwing away that passport photograph from your wallet, the toothbrush that ends up in the garbage bin and having an emotional period, the internet has recently become part of the process. Where breaking up is never easy, social media and modern communications seem to make it even harder.

It has been taken place for the last 6 years and is organised between the public radio network and the Red Cross. Music for life takes place in the last week before the Christmas holiday period.

Papa, tomorrow I am going to Antwerp!

Say what? Okay, we live in a small village and yes the exam period is finished and true; it is a small little town and it's quit boring. But to hear such a thing from a 14 (almost 15) year old, did bring a little shock through me. For a moment I felt liking loosing total control over that kid or is he not anymore "a child"?
