In a little over a week we will be heading down to southern France to enjoy our long-deserved three week vacation. It should be lots of fun. First a week to the Dordogne and then down to the coast to the small town called Valras Plage where we went two years ago.

You have got to check this site out. Amazing!
I couldn't believe how quiet it was on the road. Normally it is busy and because of the daily traffic jams, it usually takes me at least an hour to drive the measly 38 kilometers. That's about 24 miles. Everyone has left en masse for summer vacation, except the Gishes. Give or take a week. Now I am work, trying to enjoy myself, looking forward to the future.
Before I leave for vacation I need to figure out what books I want to bring along. I always lug a pile of reading material and end up reading just a little, but you never know. Too much is better than too little, and if one book is a dissappointment then I have a bunch of others to choose from. No computer books, though I am tempted to buy a web design tutorial as I am now fixated on this web building stuff. Just fiction, to help me relax and escape from the real world called information technology. Or is it really the real world? I do not know.

I don't know how I did it, but after struggling for many days I was able to figure out how to put a form with a listbox in a table cell and prevent the height of the cell extending beyond the bottom of the listbox. What a hassle.

If you like lots and lots of quotations elegantly mixed with beautiful pieces of art from throughout history, often spiritual, then I can highly recommend the following site: www.eirelass.com. Actually, I "met" Julie in person once over the Internet while chatting on a video session using Eyeball Chat. Nice person, so visit her site.
It's like a ghost town around here, as all of the Dutchies have left for their summer vacation retreats. This is a typical European activity which never ceases to amaze me. Not a soul for miles (I mean kilometers) around, few cars on the highway, and amazingly quiet wherever you go. More than half of the stores are closed for the month of August. In two days I will be joining the rest of the folks as I pull my tent caravan behind me on our way to Camping Le Port de Lacombe. Off we go, so I will not be blogging for some time now!
Rush, rush, rush... Here we all are getting ready for summer vacation. Tons of junk spread all over the place, a complete mess. By the end of the day everything will be packed up and put in the car. Rather than leaving at four in the morning, we decided to go for it by leaving at ten o'clock this evening! The kids are very excited. The advantages are many, quiet on the road, not so hotthe kids are sleeping (hopefully) and we will arrive by the next morning.
