Koninginnedag! 30 of April...Yeah, Lets Party!!

Even Google is going Orange Crazy today.

Koninginnedag: Queen's day? Orange Craze?

Queen's day, or Koninginnedag as we call it, is a national holiday in the Netherlands. On this day we celebrate the birthday of the Queen of the Netherlands. Although it's original the birthday of Queen Juliana (the mother of Queen Beatrix she past away a few years a go), not of Queen Beatrix, we celebrate her birthday on 30 April. Our Queen Beatrix birthday is on the 31th January, but winter isn't the time to party outside. Because of this, Queen Beatrix officially celebrates her birthday on 30 April, so we can party with (hopefully) better weather! Isn't our Queen lovely?

Queen's Day is also a typical occasion for the world-famous Orange Craze. On this day most of the people wear orange clothing and creative orange accessories. The colour orange is a ubiquitous sight, referring to the name of our royal family, the House of Orange. Everywhere in the city you'll see orange banners, orange colored foods and drinks. So don't forget your orange t-shirt when you join us in the Orange Craze!!!


Koninginnenacht: The night before, Queen's Night!

Because the Dutch people just like to party, we start celebrating Queen's Day already on the evening of the day before! Usually at 7 p.m. and we go on until the early hours of the Queen's Day. We call evening (and night) Koninginnenacht, Queen's Night. All the clubs in Amsterdam, The Hague and other big cities organize special festivities. Some of the best are outside and completely free for everyone! Especially for the young people this is the night to be in Amsterdam ot The Hague. Amsterdam and The Hague is very busy that night as many young people move across the city from one party to another, while others prepare the next day market, the so called freemarket!

I'm so happy. Cause today I found my friends.
They're in my head. I'm so ugly. But that's ok.

I'm so lonely. And that's ok.
I shaved my head. And I'm not sad. And just maybe.
I'm to blame for all I've heard. And I'm not sure.
I'm so excited. I can't wait to meet you there.
And I don't care. I'm so horny. But that's ok. My will is good.
Yeah (x bunch of times)

I miss you. I'm not gonna crack. I love you.
I'm not gonna crack. I kill you. I'm not gonna crack. (x2)

I'm so happy. Cause today I found my friends.

In a daze cause I've found god.

Red Sun by Volcanic Ash

The weather channels forecasted a ‘red-sun’ in the evening of 16 april 2010 en also 17 april 2010 due to Volcanic ash in the upper atmosphere, coming from the erupted Icelandic Volcano in the Eyjafjallajoekull area a few days before.



All flights in and out of the Netherlands have been suspended as ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland moves south.

Safety body Eurocontrol said up to 4,000 flights across northern Europe had so far been affected by the cloud.The Air Traffic Control Service said no flights would be allowed in or out of the Netherlands airspace for now.
The airspace restriction was the most significant in living memory, a spokesman said.
Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark were among the European countries hit.
The restrictions were imposed after the Met Office warned the ash was sufficient to clog engines.
Passengers were advised to contact their carriers prior to travel.
Experts have warned that the tiny particles of rock, glass and sand contained in the ash cloud would be sufficient to jam aircraft engines.

Sunday Jane-F7/I7

Every sunday I try to work on my Dear Jane. I already did some more but I show you that later. Every sunday I will show you what I alreade made or have made the sunday before.
I think jane Stickle did an amazing job with all those tiny pieces. The blocks I make are far for perfect but I do like to improve my skills with making this wonderfull quilt. Another quilter told that Jane was a black lady and that it was hard to get her fabrics for her quilt. Is that true?, I never read this before?!?

Tags

Last year my DD and I made some tags for a friend and her sister.
We liked the tags so much that we actually wanted to keep them! But our names are different so we give them to the people we made it for.
Never heard anything about it exept that some studs didn't hold...
I will show them to you anyway, so here they are...

Easter Egg in Windows 7

Windows 7 God Mode Easter Egg
I did not discover this, I got it from a tweet that Rob Conery put out there. Thank you, Rob!
I don’t know if this is a Windows 7 hack or if this is available in other operating systems.

1.Create a new folder on your desktop
2.Name the new folder:

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
The new folder will change into this icon.


Clicking your shiny new icon will result in a new window that gives shortcut access to the myriad of configuration and administration utilities in Windows that I always seem to need to hunt down.


Opening one of these nodes will provide direct access to the associated utils.


Weird, isn’t it?
It makes me wonder what other Easter eggs are in there
