Nah Ian, start 'em young!  The trailer is a good start. ;D

FWIW, my eldest daughter is a mechanical engineer who has had a very successful career in engineering.  Maybe your daughter might also head in that direction?

Thank you Thomas and Colin. He is not the one who makes me nervous for my car.

Nice. I hope to be going to (or at least near) the English version of Windermere in a couple of weeks

Thanks Colin  :)

Another take on the frozen forest. Tomorrow I'll try yet another version if the predicted heavy snowfall is occurring. The Weather Forecasts tend to be uncommonly accurate around here -- unfortunately.

Seems like a different take on a shot from last week?!

Jan van Esch, a friend of my died last week, an aggressive form of pancreas cancer. He was one of the initiators of better relations with the Balkan countries, especially Croatia and Bosnia. He lead many projects to improve the situation there. Also he started a dialogue with the Srbrenica Dutch bat soldiers with the survivors of the massacre.
One of the projects was the help of a mental hospital in Trogir, where there was an urgent need for hospital beds.  In 2013 we went Trogir, with a small truck and hospital beds.

I made this photo during the long trip from the Netherlands to the south of Croatia (close to Split)

Today was the funeral.

Given her love of tools and anything mechanical, that sounds very possible. She took to maths lessons the minute we told her that engineers need to know maths  8)
