Nail-biting stuff

I will be starting on my new job and career in marketing in about 10 hours from now. This means I will probably get little or no sleep at all, and will be completely useless in the morning. I hope (and fully expect) my new boss will cut me some slack and let me ease into it over the next few days -- after all, he hired me knowing full-well I have no previous experience in this field. But we'll see what happens.

Meanwhile, I want to draw your attention to my friend and former colleague Coco's website, The Dutch Table. She moved to Idaho some years ago, and has since embarked on a mission to acquaint the world with the delights of Dutch traditional foods and cuisine. Have a look, see what you think, and maybe try one or two of her recipes!

I hope you get some sleep, and have a really enjoyable first day.

And the website is a great link - thanks!

Managed 4,5 hours, which is about 3 more than I had anticipated...why, when I've set the alarm, does my subconscious think I won't hear it? It's a mystery to me, but it does give me the opportunity to say 'thankyou' before I leave for work ;-)

Some years ago I was in Amsterdam on business for a few days so I asked one of my Dutch colleagues what typically Dutch food I should be sure to try.

I got a one word answer "Indonesian".

Hee! As curry is said to be Britain's national dish, rijsttafel ("Indonesian") is ours.

I'm sure you're right, thank you.

Nifty site your friend's got there. Those rolls look tasty.

Good luck with the new job. I'm confident you'll rock!

I'll pass on the praise.
