My wife, Trudy, and I live in melbourne , Australia. We are both aged 59 and are retired. Trudy was born in Holland and her family migrated to Australia when she was two years old. Trudy has been back "home" to Holland an several occasions to visit the few remaining family members still living there ( Amersfoort), but would like to spend about 3 weeks outside the family network getting a closer more personal feel for the Netherlands.

We think Utrecht would be a good place to do this because as a universtity city it has a lively cultural life, and it is centrally located to enable day trips to other parts of the country. Utrecht is also a very beautiful city in its own right .

We enjoy music , ballet, art, history and nature.Trudy speaks adequate Dutch and I speak none ( but am learning Greek -as a challenge-if that helps !).

We are thinking of coming to Holland in May /June .

Do you have vacancies about this time ? If not, do you have any suggestions ?

Thank you very much

Dear Friends,
We are writing to you with the hope that you will support the ARK Studios, a local Ealing arts group who have been given notice of eviction. Yousif Naser, one of our key Featured Artists at The Art Ministry spearheads the ARK, contributing to the creative and cultural milieu in Ealing. Read full story here.
Attached is a petition to be sent to key personnel in Ealing Council, MP’s and MEP’s with the hope that they will step in and assist the ARK with alternative premises. Recently a spokeswoman from Ealing council gave a statement in the Ealing Gazette stating that help would be given to find new premises, but not a time frame.
Your support will ensure that an alternative building is granted speedily to the ARK and that Ealing Council keeps to their word.

All you have to do is send the attached petition.
Thank you for your support.

Hello, I am fascinated my your listing. I think it might be perfect for me. I will be studying at Utrecht University, Faculty of Law this winter and spring and I am looking for housing nearby. I hope to find a place from January through the end of April. I will be traveling with my two lovely dogs, they are prefectly housetrained and well-behaved. I am happy to provide references to you from landlords in the US. I have always been a very responsible tenant and have never had any trouble with the dogs, everyone loves them. Neither one barks at all, one is a retired/rescued Greyhound and the other is an older Dachshund. Your apartment would be perfect for me, because it is so close to the university. Please let me know if you would like any more information from me. I am a 30 year-old, single woman (and vegetarian!) and am finishing up my law degree at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA.
Thank you very much!

I don't know if you remember me, but we went to high school together at Kubasaki, in Okinawa, and hung out together for a while before my father was transferred to Yokota AB. I recently signed up on classmates.com and was browsing friends from Yokota and Kubasaki, when I remembered you from my past. Of course, I googled your name and after some effort (adding the "e" made it more difficult), I found out your famous!! It was always meant to be. I lost track of you after you moved to Singapore to work for a bank, and then left on a sabbatical.

I've been staying busy since college. I am currently studying law in Phoenix, Arizona, and am married with four grandchildren (I inherited the grandkids as a result of the marriage - we've been married for less than two years). I always wondered what happened with you, and hoped to someday learn how you'd fared. Today I learned. Congratulations on your accomplishments. Those of us who knew you in high school were certain you were destined for great things. Please feel free to drop me a line when you get a chance. If you have any concerts coming up in the U.S., I'd love to know when and where you are playing.

I have had a piano marked Gerhard Adam Wessel, as well as C.A. Andre, Frankfurt A/M

The piano was purchased when we lived in Frankfurt, Germany. It also has fixed to it, two brass candlesticks.

Thank you for any information you could supply to me.

I recently came accross your website and was impressed with the quantity and quality of your London information (http://www.analyticalq.com/london/default.htm). I recently returned from London and agree with your saying - If you are tired of London, then you are tired of life. While I was there, I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel London and was surprised that this hotel was not listed on your hotels that you would stay if someone else was paying for it. I highly recommend this hotel.

Thanks for the informative site.
