WILLEM HENDRIK ZWART (1995) "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott"

Played on the organ in the Bovenkerk in Kampen. Watch him check his sheetmusic while playing and the work of his feet on the feetregister. Sometimes I need the power of organmusic while I am working.

Great ancestors

This Portrait-painting and the photo show a remarcable resemblance to eachother. The painting shows sergeant Gerrit 'the red butcher' Boschman, he was sergeant in the famous 'Rooifonteyn Garde' in the South African Boeren Army. The photo shows Gerrit 'red beard' Bosman, standing on the deck of the good ship 'Libertyn' on the Baltic Sea near Denmark. Somehow there is a strange flow of energy between the two. Where is my sable, I feel the need for a nice cut, there's a sabre-rattling in the air.

Flying at Hoogeveen Airport

This is the Schleicher ASK-21, the twinseater used as the main trainingsplane at the flightclub hoogeveen ( The plain is 21 years old, but still very good.
I flew saturday in Hoogeveen with nice weather. Getting my Gliders Pilot Licence is very time consuming, three flights on a day is the average. In Hoogeveen the planes are town up on a cable behind a motorplane to a hight of 1200 ft or 450 mtrs. That alows a longer flight than a cable start. To get your licence you need at least 100 flights, that is 35 days on the airfield.

Schooieren in Velsen Noord

A you tube slide show, it shows Velsen Noord, the town I was born. The audio background, a cynical read bible study that reminds me of the christian reformed church we used to got to.

Learn how to fly...

The vaulting teams made pictures for the new web site when suddenly gravity dissappeared! We almost lost the team. Now we understand where our cow has gone last year. We definitly have an abnormality in our meadow. It might be a gate to another universe!

Deep Purple - when a blind man Cries Video

I have used this song in my new book. Chip plays it on the carrilon, as a message to his friend Sander. When Tom finds out what the lyrics are he wonders what Chip wanted to say with it. The well known carrilon player Auke de Boer is going to play the song on his carrilon in Groningen.
