Sadly, not all of us are sanctified with a mind that can take us far and beyond, but luckily the invention of film provides the ability to take anyone and everyone along for the ride. (..more)

After rain, wind and Sharknadoes (scary, but true), summer has found its way to the Dutchland. Every ray of sunlight is a blessing for my vampire white skin and a 24 degrees Celsius weather forecast is a definite GO to the beach. So AHOY the chix went on expedition to the blissful Blijburg (which literally translates to burrow of the happy, or to my ears, a shire full of hobbits on E). (..more)

Rubbish, you say? I would initially agree with you on this, however the Mayans are known worldwide for their architectural, artistic, mathematical and scientific achievements. So if they were right about so many things, why would they be wrong about this? Subsequently, this makes a gal want to pack her finest clothes and buy a one-way ticket to Mars. (..more)
