‘Make’ it a good Christmas – Batteries, soldering iron and code not included

I remember getting my first bike for Christmas in 1982. It was an amazing red bike, with cool handle-bar grips and a bright shiny logo on the frame. It took me months to learn how to ride it and Christmas seemed to last forever. Learning was hard, the bruises were many but the reward was independence.

Hoe zien de banen in de toekomst eruit? Welke lessen moeten onze kinderen krijgen op de basisschool om straks moeiteloos het arbeidsproces in te rollen. In de film Back to the Future, maakt de hoofdpersoon een tijdreis naar 21 oktober 2015. Veel van de elementen uit de film zijn realiteit zoals beschreven in een eerder blog.

Xbox Avatar editor

nothing suits you like a suite

Today I am posting again in English and definitely Off-Topic! A few weeks ago I made a short stop at the Windows 8 – Game App (I do not play games) and I noticed that I had a really bad avatar.
