Dear David:

Here's a nice little tidbit from my second homeland of the Netherlands. Crown Princess Maxima, wife of future King (Koning in Dutch & current Crown Prince) Willem-Alexander has done something quite extraordinary. She & her husband have taken Euros out of their own pockets & the Crown Princess has started a drive to rid lice from schoolchildren's hair in Dutch schools. Even travelling the width & breadth of the country to physically wash some of the children's scalps back to healthiness herself. Talk about a wonderful future Dutch Queen & an outstanding effort at a public health initiative in schools.

Tot Ziens,
