    What do you mean by "support"?

    Why do publicans put television sets on "silent", unless they're showing football? Every place I've ever been to in Portugal did it. Why?

    That sounds nice. Even though it's now a "bedroom community" for commuters, at least it's a proper town with a town center, etc. Not just sprawl that nobody cares about.

    Aren't pubs supposed to be humdrum? One goes there to talk to friends, etc. I've noticed that in films and TV from the UK. At least in older movies/shows, the pubs never seem to have pop music or TVs constantly blaring in the background or a lot of random tat on the walls to give it "character."

Not sure that I'd be able to handle this for a long time.
    That makes me sad. Unless its a really nice town, but even then...

    For once today, I dressed smartly for work, as I had an internal interview. So of course today would be the day that I poured coffee all over myself.

    Funky. My brother lived in an apartment complex just across from Amersfoort station. Small world.

    He moved to the suburbs a while ago, though. Even more cycling.

    I live in Amersfoort, opposite the station. Like I said, the cycling is a perk.

    Ah, sorry. Missed the last page. Where do you live??

    Where's the new job, Aitch? I cant imagine anywhere 20k from Utreg without transport links. Then again, I voluntarily cycled Amersfoort to Nijkerk for 10 years.

    That's like, what, 4 hours plus travelling every day, Aitch?

    My commute is about 90 minutes as it stands (and I am far from the only one who does it). It is among the reasons why a change of job / relocation are under consideration - not from my complaining, I might add.

    And a damn fine job, to boot!

    Yep, and a ten-minute walk at the other end.

    You'll cycle 20k, then get on a train for an hour?

    Itís 26k to my work (I only do both ways in the same day occasionally, more at this less demanding/ lighter evening time of year) and I always need a shower.

    I aim to cycle everywhere to work and am lucky in not having a dress code.
