Finally a long weekend with no plans or appointments. Although we are in Australia for 3 years now, and we are adapting the aussie lifestyle, we are still not infected with the easter show fever (yet?).

The only reason we would go there one day is to see the biggest pumpkin of the year and the prettiest cake.

No time to relax with the Kemna Family. It has been a while since our last post, and a lot happend since.

Today, however, they won 40-6, so they are on their way back anyway. But more important, as this is a huge news item Down Under, let’s investigate on what really happened. Rugby is a … Continue reading Off-topic: How salary caps are not the answer to fair play
