Lots of sports: speedskating, organising speedskating races (400 meter track), bit of running, supporting the local Football club. Fancy to watch some cricket, but since the BBC is the only UK TV station to be seen over here there is not much to be seen any more :cry: (no change here :cry: )

What do you wish you had more time for?
Read some good books while sitting in the sun (which includes me not only needing more time, but also needing to consider emigration to a country with a different climate). Spend our winter in New Zealand summer for 5 weeks and can confirm: emigration would help, but recent changes in Dutch retirement law, postponing retirement from 65 to 67 and than even 3 months more and no idea where this will end once I get there doesn't help at all!

Wife and two (grown up) kids

No

Sorry, really don't have one

No wallpaper, just a standard colour (did I already say I was not a very adventurous type :?: ) Now standard Windows 10 :grin:
