25th Anniversary Concert of Phantom

Is anybody going to see the show(s) on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of October? Being a huge fan of Lloyd-Webber's music and having seen the Phantom for so many times (in London, New York, Scheveningen en Antwerp) I felt I could not miss this special performance and tried to buy tickets. I managed, a...

I like to read romances by Sabrina Jeffries, Mary Jo Putney, Kathryn Caskie and Teresa Medeiros. The last three ladies are wonderful persons, who are friendly towards someone they don't know, and when my mother died Teresa even send her condolences.

I've read all his Egyptian novels, and must say I like them. Once in a while, I read a Hugh Corbett one, but my preference goes to the afore mentioned series. I also know that Paul Doherty is a nice guy, as I did an interview with him some years ago. He even sent me a signed book for my birthday tha...

11th July

In years past, July 11th meant something for Flanders. It was the day the common folk, under the leadership of butchers Jan Breydel and Willem de Koninck fought against the French army and won! This battle was called the Battle of the Golden Spurs (De Guldensporen Slag). Now July is the national hol...

I also have a Kindle, and use the 3G version. It's not all that expensive, especially as the euro is doing great against the dollar. As everything is very expensive in Belgium, we don't care to pay 150,00 € for something. We think that's cheap. I find it easy to shop and download the books immediate...

As I just love history, the French revolution and the Napoleontic era are within my interest. As a matter of fact, I plan part three of my Medici Diamonds trilogy in that timeframe. The first part start early in the 18th century, while part two (which I'm about to start) sits around the middle of th...

Hello to you Manda, and nice to get to know you. I'm a newbie here, so I don't know everyone yet. I've just begun to read The White Queen by Philippa Gregory, and the story really takes to you. I did read a couple of her other books (The Other Boleyn Girl, The Queen's Fool) and liked them. She bring...

Hello Alisha! The spelling of that place in Austria is Sell-am-See. Indeed, it's a great place, but if you ever have the chance you should visit Scuol in Switzerland. It's not well known, but the village has a bunch of farm houses dating back to the 16th century, and I have actually lived in one for...
