Some cool getting new business images:
new toy, 250gb firewire 800 drive
got this to support my laptop for backups/restores. it’s firewire 800, which is supposed to be very fast. i’m unimpressed. however, it’s a business expense and as such, a write-off. wee.
In the south of the Netherlands, in the province of Zeeland, there is an old custom almost all horse owning farmers participate in. It’s called ‘ring rijden’ or ‘ring steken’. (ride the ring, or get the ring) With a spear a small ring on a line must be caught while the man on horseback (no saddle) galops past. The further one gets in the competition, the smaller the ring gets. The winner takes home no more than the honor and the respect of his fellow farmers. That is, till next year of course! The occasion takes place on the main summer marketday and is reason to celebrate, drink, meet friends and discuss business. As it is with all things, the tradition has withered but tourism has given it a kind of new life…
