Hi Vicky, long time no seen. Glad you're not angry either. Well I was a bit bored, so I thought to stir up the place a bit. LOL

Yes, actually I am.
I have to go into work in less than an hour, and get to spend the greater part of my day there. Yuck.

And I'm still fuming off of the other venting thread. I never used to be so patriotic, but recently, after Sept. 11, it's like people just want to voice their negativity on the only country I call home. I believe this is a great place to live, and I find it sad that others hate it so vehemently.

Seems my former reply did arouse some people in thinking that I was refering to Melissa's thread. Well I wasn't, I choose the wrong words to translate my Dutch. Melissa wrote to me about it and here's my answer to here.

Dear dear Melissa,

Oh my gosh, I wasn''t refering to what you wrote at all sweet girl, no way,
I thought that you had a very good point there. Oh my, did I choose the
wrong words. I read it over again and I can see now that it can be
interpreted as you did. Please forgive me, but I really didn't mean it that
way.

Sometimes I translate the Dutch too literaly. What I meant was merely in a
humorous way, the way for instance we make little jokes about the character
of the Belgium people and they do that to us, quite harmless funny things.

I wasn't thinking of your thread at all.
I really thought you were right there, being angry with people who haven't
the courtesy to respect one nations hymne. My daughter is playing softbal in
the Dutch National team and I know what you meant, because when they play
against Italy, the audience will scold them and throw things to them, wich I
think is not a respectful act either.

I will set it right in the tread, because I really don't want anybody to
think that I was insulting you or any other country.

That's what happens when dumm Dutchies are trying to write in English.

I highly respect you Melissa, and I'm still a nice person, hope we're
friends again.

Love, Titia

Nicely said, Titia. I'm sure no one took it that way. To think that someone hates an entire country because of the irresponsible actions of a few would be very narrow-minded indeed.

Now I know what the phrase "gettting in dutch"  means!!!

     Titia, now we can have a good laugh  
Funny thing is, I never even read this thread until two other poets pointed it out to me, and they wondered the same thing, but, it just goes to show how sometimes people can misconstrue innocent comments. I know you are a very sweet person, and I'm glad that it's settled and hopefully the others will read this too and smile.  Rest assured that myself and the few other poets were not angry with you at all.
When I wrote you that email I assumed that it was a misunderstanding, I just wanted to ask you what you meant to clear things up. Anyways, it's all good now     Have a nice sunday~

P.S. ~ And yes, you're very smart, you're a woman afterall lol

Take care m'friend,
Melissa~

Oké Melissa, I feel a whole lot better now, I haven't realized at all she was referring to your thread, because actually I always plead not to judge a whole country for the acts of few dummies and not to condemne a religion for the acts of some fanatics. I'm a very peaceful woman.

Thanks Deer and a knuffel

Getting in Dutch (getting in trouble), going Dutch or Dutch treat (sharing expenses on a date), Dutch uncle (someone who soundly criticizes another), double Dutch (incomprehensible speech), and Dutch courage (false bravado acquried from a bottle) are just a few of the undeservedly derisive phrases that first started in the England of the 17th Century and continued for a few hundred years.

In the mid-1600's, the Dutch colonial empire loomed as a serious challenge to the British empire. Human nature being what it is, the English responded by calling their rivals rude names. Those of us who inherited our language from England also inherited their slang.

How do I know such useless trivia? Only because the phrase "Dutch courage" arose as the result of a poem by Edmund Waller. In Instructions to a Painter (1666), he wrote: "The Dutch their wine, all their brandy lose, Disarm'd of that from which their courage grows."

Oh my, haven't been here for long time and completely missed Ron's delicious explanation.
Wanna still hear a Belgium joke? I've been told by a Belgian himself LOL

"The Belgium Government wants to change the rightside driving to the leftside driving (as in England), but they don't know yet if the people will like it.
So...they decided to start the experiment with trucks only....???" ha ha

Thanks Ron, I'm feeling much better now, being a Dutchie.
