Hi all,

I have to tell you something that happened to my wife and me.
We have several combined interest and one of them is gardening.
As of this year we hold a 600 m2 plot (yes 600 m2!!!!!) that we rent for almost nothing (15 US Dollar/year) being new members of a gardening club.

Using the internet we came in contact with gardeners all over the world sharing tips and tricks. People from the US, especially those with Dutch ancestry, are very positive towards our endeavour.

Last week, completely out of the blue, we received a package from one of our US gardening friends full of Christmas gifts. We were totally of our feet and felt so good about this warm gesture.
The world has become a global village we feel part of.

Just wanted to share this.
