Janny on the ice of Loosdrechtse Plassen

Janny on the ice of Loosdrechtse Plassen | Winter time the Netherlands | Scoop.it

Photo of me on the ice with wooden skates. I was the only one wearing them and a piece of history for families with young children, so the history is still alive.

Janny Nieboer's insight:

This is me last Friday. I did it. My friend skated a few days earlier on an ijsbaan (a place where people put water on a track), and she fell and broke her wrist. Now she needs taking care of (for food and cleaning) and she has to walk everywhere, because she can not cycle or drive a car. And she had to ask for help with things.

She does not ask for help much, because she is not that  kind of person....

But I cleaned her kitchen and cooker yesterday. So she can at least start over with a clean sink.

Tuesday I was invited to Meat & Eat with the members of Theatregroup Dox. They played a play about social media and imago. The play was for young people.

It was with dance and different multimedia in it. I enjoyed it totally. It was in Rotterdam again. What a great place to be.

Next week the group will play on the Tweetakt festival in Utrecht, a festival about theatre for young people.

Yesterday I went to a class that practised healing tao. It was all about clean up, so winter must come to an end finally. Is was in the centre Osher in Utrecht, a nice and friendly, clean and warm place. The women were all about my age, except for the teacher, she is a bit younger. I might go for it ending the winter.

IJLP - IJSCLUB DE LOOSDRECHTSE PLASSEN - Loosdrecht
Janny Nieboer's insight:

Last Friday January 25 2013 the Iceskating club from Loosdrecht, 20 kilometers from home Utrecht,  opened an iceskating track on one of the lakes near Loosdrecht. It was 4 kilometers long and everybody could ride one side round. In the picture you see the signs where you could pay your 3 euro fee to use the course and then you were expected to show your ticket every time you passed the gate.

I had my ticket on my hat with a needle, but only made it once trough the gate. I fell 4 times and on my face the last time, so I stopped after one round and walked back to my bicycle.

I glorious sign of not giving up on iceskating, at age 60 and as a woman, who has become very scared after last years fall.

Een nieuw cultureel podium dat zich specifiek richt op Rotterdam Zuid.

Saturday March 3 I visited Rotterdam South, the cultural centre Gemaal op Zuid. I had a lesson in Qi Gong and watched the exhibition Double Happiness. It was the last day of the exhibition, but the results can be seen on the site. I also visited the shopping centre in South and the market on the Afrikaanderplein. I went back by metro and train to Utrecht, where I live. I might go for my own Qi Gong class in Utrecht.

Memories of 2 weeks ago

Memories of 2 weeks ago | Winter time the Netherlands | Scoop.it

It is interesting how quickly the snow and frost is forgotten, once the thaw goes in. Now it is mostly + 10 Celsius during the day. The feel is spring approaching.

The Netherlands is in shock, because Queen Beatrix's son had a severe accident on his ski vacation in Austria. He is in a coma and might never recover.

Because of lack of oxygen his brain has a lot of damage.

The queen is so sad, she is all pain.

De ijskast van Lundia

Hollandsche taferelen op de Amsterdamse grachten. Voor onze reclamecampagne hebben wij een ijskast gefotografeerd. Op de achtergrond ziet u de Westertoren en op de voorgrond zittend op de kast een jongeman. Laat hij nou geen familie zijn of ingehuurd fotomodel. Hij is er spontaan gaan zitten. Precies zoals af wij het ons hebben voorgesteld bij een kast zoals deze. Dit inmiddels populaire ontwerp, Amerikanen noemen het een Mudroom, is er voor gemaakt. Even zitten en veters strikken, je jas ophangen, schoolpukkel opbergen en zo verder. Lundia uw kast, jouw kast.
Nu nog even over de jongeman. Wij willen hem graag belonen voor zijn fotogenieke daad.
Weet u wie hij is? Laat het ons even weten.

No Elfstedentocht yet. It is not safe and the ice is too bad in a part of Fryslan.

Wednesday night it was decided. Sunday the temperature will come higher thatn zero Celsius, so than it is over with iceskating.

Some people hope the frost comes back and then....

Former winners were in the National news at 8 p.m. to tell about what they feel about it. One of the winners is a farmer, who emigrated to Canada. A Dutch journalist went to see him and make an item as he prepares. He had his suitcase packed.

His cows were named after famous female skaters.... Funny
