On Nov. 23, 2005 I moved to The Hague from Washington, DC. This is my new Dutch life.


Some Heat Here, More Heat There

Breaking news update...

Mr. Quick came along quickly indeed. He also quickly got mad at us for not having the bathroom radiator open enough.

Seems that we fell victim to another instance of no Dutch, not so good English, and inadequate mime skills. The last time he was here, Mr. Quick kept telling B- something about the radiator in the bathroom. B understood it to be broken and that Mr. Quick would return to fix it. B- kept saying, "it's ok we don't use it anyway."

As it turns out, the bathroom radiator is fine. He was trying to explain that we have to keep all of the valves open. I *think* we need to avoid a build up of pressure in the system that causes the computer (who know there was a computer?) to shut the whole thing down. Mr. Quick will return in a couple of weeks to bypass the bathroom so we don't have to run it on high. We'll have a sauna for a few days I guess. He admitted that he has a vacation lined up already and won't return until March 10. To this point he conceded that he's not so quick.

Note: This is the first post where I've had no spelling errors. Hurrah!
