New England Trip in October 2014

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

This is another trip that I made recently to see more of this country. I decided that I would stay in one place, from where I would make my trips. I rented a place through, which was a bit of cost saving. The people from whom I had rented the room were very nice, […]

Idaho Trip in September 2014

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Last month, I’ve decided that I would like to see something different than only my own four walls. One thing that I truly regret in life is that I’ve not traveled enough and have not seen enough from this world. And the older we get, it is all the more difficult to do and achieve […]

Keeping your memory sharp

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

How do you keep your memory sharp? One way is to do all kind of tests, or to recall details of an event. We all forget things until something or someone reminds us of something, and the process of remembering starts. This happened to me in 1999. Until that year I had not thought about […]

Genealogical DNA research

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

Besides writing a book about numerological patterns and the recognition and relevance thereof, I’m also interested in genealogical DNA research. We observe patterns in any kind of areas and important clues can be deduced from these data. I decided to start with my genealogical DNA research in July 2007. Therefore I had my mitochondrial DNA […]

A person, I had met when I worked at Microsoft, awakened my curiosity for genealogy. He worked as a translator for a translation company in Germany, and his company worked on the translation and localization products of Microsoft software. Since I was working on translation projects, I met him on one of my visits with […]

North Cascades & Northeast Washington

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

If you ever visit Washington State, take also the time to tour Northeast Washington, which looks totally different than the Pacific side. Northeast Washington’s terrain was created by cataclysmic Ice Age Floods and left a deeply scarred plateau with hundreds of small lakes, flat top mountains, and canyons known as “coulees” (ravines and ancient basins […]

St. Pankratius entrance door

Friday, June 8th, 2007

In my previous post ‘Sponsoring a child’ I chose a picture of a door that belongs to the convent and church St. Pankratius of the Augustinian order in Hamersleben in Saxony-Anhalt County. St. Pankratius is now under renovation and will be finished in 2008. It belongs to the most significant Romanic facilities. Construction started about […]

Connecting links

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

You may have already read my post ‘Symbols and numbers’. There I outlined some of the connecting links of my numerological profile showing up in the number Pi. I just read the Washington State history on the web site and I noticed quite a few data and dates that play a prominent role in […]

Cape Flattery

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

I just read on another site about the history of the Cape Flattery trail. Now it’s a very pleasant trail, but that hasn’t always been so. Jeff Logan writes on his site that the sightseers from all over the world hiked before the renovation “through a muddy, poorly maintained trail – and risked plunging off […]

Olympic Peninsula

Monday, May 7th, 2007

Last week I took a few days off and toured the Olympic Peninsula with Kari who is originally from Norway. A couple years ago I met Kari at the Seattle Astronomy Club of which her husband is a member. We both like to travel and she accepted my proposal to explore together the unique countryside […]
