    The last couple of months I had been looking for a nice dress watch. Today I finally made the decision and bought an Omega De Ville Hour Vision "Orbis". I absolutely love it. The way it curves beautifully around my wrist, the amazing colour, the co-axial movement... I'm really flabbergasted.

Personally I considered the Great Sand Dunes NP a waste of time, it's almost as boring as the National Grasslands. Why not include the Rocky Mountains NP or the...

    Car door sounds...the perception of quality

    Hmm, I currently drive a '11 Renault M?gane (temporary car bestowed upon me whilst waiting on my new company car). It .. is .. horrible! The doors don't make any sound at all when you close them.

    Let's see, Dutch, French, English and German were mandatory courses at school. I also studied a few years Latin and ancient Greek (I have forgotten the most of it though).
