workers, managers and the board of directors
You've got workers, who cut trees
You've got managers, who take care that the axes are sharp
And you've got the board of directors, who make sure you're in the right forest
You've got workers, who work with the tools they are given and produce what can be processed with it
You've got managers, who have long discussions if takes an axe or a chainsaw to get the job done
And you've got the board of directors, who only want to harvest all trees and have no clue how this is done in practice

Riddle of the day
"I never was, am always to be. No one ever saw me, nor ever will. And yet I am the confidence of all, To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball. What am I?"
Put the answer in the comments or send me a mail, I'll post the answer to the question later this week!

Update from Macerata, Italia
A very short update for those who stayed home in rainy and cold Netherlands;
En Italia tutto e bella! Had a great time in Campomarino and we're enjoying the beauty of the province of Marche at the moment. Weather could have been a little bit better...it has been rainy the last days, but hey...it's holiday, so we keep relaxing!!!

It's about time for a new header graphic, eh?
This picture was taken last weekend at the 'Reeuwijkse Plassen' (lakes), where we went sailing for Robbert's bachelor party!

It's my last week at work before a well deserved holiday (in my own judgement :))...traditionally a busy week. For one reason or another all things come together at once and need direct attention. :(
Spare time is filled with preparations for the holiday since we'll go camping, sssoooo looking forward to doin' nothing on a sunny Italian beach!
Despite the crazy days at work I took a day off tomorrow to 'do' the frontyard...weather is promising; showers with thunderstorms and a small chance for hail...AAAHHHHHH!! Temperatures will be good though, 17-19 degrees (yeah, the heathwave finally came to an end!!)
