Originally Dutch, which - to a large extent - I suspect I always will stay, now living in the US. Found the love of my life some 4500 miles away from home, here in Ohio. Other than love for my wife, due consideration has taught me no grounds for emigrating; most assuredly it did not improve my position in life. Nonetheless, though I wish her coming to The Netherlands had been a more viable option, I would not have chosen differently, given the chance.
For the past 25 years or so I've been an absolute news freak. Most any decent story, wherever in the world is news-worthy as far as I'm concerned. For a number of years I've allowed the media to defeat me, but no more. Cherry picking my way through news casts, combined with internet sources, I once again try to get a handle on the world.
I tend to vote on merit, not political affiliation, though with only 2 parties, the US seriously limits options. Then again, until I decide to become a citizen, I suppose that is a tad irrelevant.
There's much more to say, but for once I'll keep it brief. Anything else you want to know, you'll have to ask…
