Kaarsjesavond Candle Night Gouda


The people of Gouda in Holland burn candles at the traditional december candle night ‘Kaarsjesavond’ all over the historic town center, where Adrie Vergeer’s Gouda street organs ‘Pansfluiter’ (Pan whistler) and ‘Het Zonnetje’ (Little Sun) play, and the kids of Music school Gouda. When the candles in the giant tree on the central market square are lit, the Carillon is played by Boudewijn Zwart, and Gouda songs (Als de kaarsjes branden… Gouda stad van …) by Desiree Coumans with John de Heij (guitar) and Nils Davidse (piano) – sound on that freezing cold (-7°C / 19°F) Friday night December 16, 2008 in front of a massive crowd at the town hall in the city center of Gouda , Holland. Mensen in Gouda, bedankt!

I am a European – Churchill


Europe 1 — Winston Churchill that sunny Sunday afternoon of 9 May 1948 on the Dam square in the heart of Amsterdam at the European rally “Europe 1” addressing the crowd with a “V” sign , saying :

“We hope to reach again a Europe … in which men will be proud to say, ‘I am a European’ …. a Europe where men of every country will think as much of being a European as of belonging to their native land, and that without losing any of their love and loyalty of their birthplace.
We hope wherever they go in this wide domain, to which we set no limits in the European Continent, they will truly feel “Here I am at home. I am a citizen of this country too”.

Unbreaking news – The Correspondent !

Choose what you pay for The Correspondent …
Join, and become a pioneer !

In the last two days, The Correspondent crossed two major milestones: more than 37,000 people are now founding members of The Correspondent. And those founding members have raised more than $2 million towards our $2.5 million goal. That is amazing.

Now  $307,518 left to raise – but only 2 days and 15 hours left to make The Correspondent a reality .

 

The Correspondent , Nov 22, 2018. – Do you want to change journalism with me? 

Choose what you pay for The Correspondent !

I like to tell you about The Correspondent …. a new movement for unbreaking news. I am a founding member (of the original Dutch version) for 5 years now …. and I think you might like to join as well !

Right now they are crowdfunding, and they have asked for my help. They need 2.5 million dollars to launch an English version.

News as we know it leaves us cynical, divided, and less informed. Together we can change that! 

The Correspondent is ad-free and wants to redefine what news is about, shifting the focus from the sensational to the foundational.
They need 2.2 million euro’s/2.5 million dollars to launch an English version.

If you join, you become a pioneer.
You can choose what you pay and if they don’t reach their goal (I hope not, of course) you get your money back 🙂

If you’d like to join: you can find more information here  in The Correspondent
