Oranje Boven!

Let's call it a patriotic song for The Netherlands. I'd hardly call it a National Anthem, but perhaps it is for Dutch sport fans.

But since I'm half-Dutch, I felt compelled to wish everyone a happy Koninginnen Dag! It would translate very loosely to President's Day, but on a much more grand scale.

My Facebook friend, Charlotte, sent me a link about a horrible accident in Apeldoorn, where I used to have family. I'll provide the link, but you'll have heard about it by now.

So here's the House of Orange, not to be confused with the House of Mouse, and 'lang zal ze leven!'
