Hi Hannie

I definitely want to add a huge OPR welcome to you.  I hope you'll be one of our regulars on the forum.  Congrats on finishing your first restoration!  The Netherlands!  I visited there when I was a kid, and I fell in love with the country.  I hope it's still as beautiful as it was then (that was several hundred years ago.  Just kidding.  But just barely. My nickname at work is "the fossil" -- but I know they mean it in the most loving way. The young PUNKS! And, of course I mean that most affectionately).

Cheers!

Glenna

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!
It is great to see so many volunteers from so many places work on such a worthy cause.
Dutch people are getting taller and taller because the place is so congested that there is no room to expand in any other direction!
Bozeman=angry man in Dutch!  :)

Bozeman = angry man?????????  Yikes!  Fortunately, Bozeman is probably one of the friendliest places I know.  I can walk down the sidewalk of Main street, and strangers will make eye contact, smile, and say "hello".  It's a great place to live!

Glad to have you a part of OPR!

I can put your mind at rest Christine, the name Bozeman is the result of early Dutch immigrants not able to spell their name: Bosman.  (a very common Dutch name meaning forest man, very friendly  ;))

About 10 years ago, I spent 20 days at Huizen and visited Amsterdam several times by train.  I was impressed by the train system and the bike trails.  Amsterdam is a beautiful city.  I love the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.

I always had the ideas that Dutch girls are short and chubby wearing a white hat with wings and Dutch boys all have a finger in the dike.  Was I wrong!  The Dutch girls are all so tall and slender.

Thanks for the welcome Schen, and yes you were wrong about the Dutch, the truth is we all have tulips growing out of our ears, wear wooden shoes and sleep in closets!

I did buy a pair of wooden shoes in Amsterdam and I was told without us falling for the tourist trap, the tradition of wooden shoe making would have been lost.  :D

Sleeping in the closet?  How did I miss that one.

I thought it might be a good time to reactivate this thread, since we have so many new volunteers since this was last active.  I hope all of our new volunteers will sign in and let us know where you are from!

Welcome!

Christine   :)

P.S.  I do have to tell you that you are ALL very special, but we do have one new volunteer that is extra special to me.  It's my Mom!  Welcome Mom!
