Today the first snow for this season has fallen. In a great part of the Netherlands its snowing. Here at the coast we'll have to do with less. At the moment it is raining and freezing. So it's very slippery on the roads here. I'll have to take care when I get my daughter from school on the bike. There is nothing on the radio... despite a huge sunspot, but I can't hear a thing. So I watch the snow falling, and no, I don't count the snowflakes. In the Netherlands we choose the word of the year, and the new word is: ontvrienden. I don't have a translation because it's new. It means: deleting friends from social communities like Facebook or Twitter. When it is so easy to make friends that way... Maybe we'll have to define the meaning of friendship.
