  1. Being Fredhead's Sister I got to see the mission just before it was sent :unsure:

     

    I saw a First To Receive prize and a coin I wanted to trade with him but he would not trade. :)

     

    I can also tell you that I am not the first agent to get the mission :D

     

    Fredhead is really excited to see this one get moving and learn about all of the other Junior Cachers out there.

     

    Looking forward to when I get the mission.

  2. I LOVE THE COIN...

     

    I cannot wait till the final hopefully I will have the resources to get some for the kids and myself.

    Both of my children attend/attened Catholic school, one is just out the other still there.

     

    My only comment would be to make sure with Groundspeak that the religious reference does not

    cause any heartburn. We have had a cache denied due to a Religious reference, and in ther guidelines

    there is a rule dealing with Promotion of a Religious Agenda....BLAH,BLAH,BLAH....

    Hate to see you do get the whole way and something go off track at he last minute.

     

    Looks as if I need to put a jar aside and start to add money for the purchase.

     

    GREAT IDEA, GOOD LOOKING COIN, I AM SURE IT WILL BE WELL RECEIVED

     

    really ,,, wow Ive seen a few other christ coins, i could see if Groundspeak wouldent want to create conflick, but that fact is ,, in life weve tooken christ out of almost everything except church,,,, schools are not allows to make religious reference, the pepole downtown hackel the guys that preach from the street corner, you rarely see any one pray at meal time anymore, and in most cases you can get fired for making religious reference at work.

    i think this is a good reason the world has changed over the past 10 yrs. not alot of kids talk about god anymore and in my opinion, that is why everyone has become so obsesed in material belongings, money and selfishness. society dosent have the same values as it did 10 yrs ago.

     

    My Dad The Finding Irish 4 is correct it was one of my Caches that was denied, the Moderator was really great about it and helped us through the issue.

    It was in the Cache Guidelines we just missed it, so no big deal, I changed the information to conform to the guidelines and it was published no problem at that point.

    Under a seperate cover I will forward you the cache information so you can see it.

     

    As for you statements reguarding the move from Religion we agree and I also love the coin.

  8. My favorite it definitely coffee...but unfortunately I might be a snob :anitongue: I actually roast my own cofffee beans at home using a bread machine and a heat gun (I buy green coffee beans in 12 pound batches and roast about a 2 pounds a week).

     

    IMHO it is much better than anything I can buy elsewhere and much cheaper as well :laughing:.

     

    Not my picture but give the general idea of the setup. You get the coffee beans up to temp and the smell is incredible

    Hello teamhaynes, from the picture looks as if you might know my Dad...

    As it looks if you or your friend from the picture are roasting a bit of grain, maybe for a RootBeer? :huh:

    Dad brews, Beer, RootBeer, roasted different malts, and yes coffee beans....

  10. Koninginnenacht: The night before, Queen's Night!

     

    Because the Dutch people just like to party, they start celebrating Queen's Day already on the evening of the day before! Usually at 7 p.m. and they go on until the early hours of the Queen's Day. They call evening (and night) Koninginnenacht, Queen's Night. All the clubs in Amsterdam organize special festivities. Some of the best are outside and completely free for everyone! Especially for the young people this is the night to be in Amsterdam. Amsterdam is very busy that night as many young people move across the city from one party to another, while others prepare the next day market, the so called freemarket!

    Queen's Day is also a typical occasion for the world-famous Orange Craze. On this day most of the people wear orange clothing and creative orange accessories. The colour orange is a ubiquitous sight, referring to the name of our royal family, the House of Orange. Everywhere in the city you'll see orange banners, orange coloered foods and drinks.

  11. The tricolour of the Netherlands with its three horizontal stripes is one of the world's sovereign flags. It is not the country's first flag. When, at the end of the l5th century, the majority of the provinces of the Low Countries were united under one lord, a single common flag came into use for joint expeditions. This was the banner of the Duke of Burgundy, which consisted of a white field charged with two bundles of red laurel branches in the form of an X, with flames issuing from the intersection: the Cross of Burgundy. Under the House of Habsburg, this flag remained in use.

  12. Glacial action during the penultimate ice age (the Saale Glacial Stage, 200,000-130,000 BC) was an important factor in the formation of the country as it is today. It produced a hilly landscape in what is now the central Netherlands.

     

    The glaciers pushed up ridges and the subsequent melting of the icecaps gouged out deep river valleys which still dictate the course of the major rivers intersecting the Netherlands (the Rhine, Maas, Waal and IJssel). During the last interglacial period, the Netherlands consisted principally of a delta, with large areas of semi-submerged mudflats and shallows around the northern coast and marshes and lakes inland. During the final ice age (the Weichsel glaciation, 70,000–10,000 BC), the icecap never reached the Netherlands but the area developed a cold tundra climate and a permanently frozen subsoil (permafrost).

     

    The earliest inhabitants of the Netherlands lived mainly on the ridge of hills near present-day Utrecht and survived by hunting and fishing. Stone tools that have been found show that the earliest Neanderthal inhabitants were already roaming around the Netherlands during the last glacial stage. Arable farming and animal husbandry were introduced around 5300 BC, allowing settlements to be established, although hunting and fishing continued to be important food sources. The imposing chamber tombs (‘hunebeds’) still found in the northern province of Drenthe also date from this period. They are built of huge boulders carried there by the glaciers.
