DIY e-trike

setThe conversion kits to turn our Stowaway trikes into e-trikes are installed. The kits by Ebike Efos were delivered and complete, so last weekend I’ve started installing them. As this was the first time I’ve transferred a bike into an e-bike I was expecting that it would take over half a day to get it done, but it went pretty smoothly. Despite the rainy intermissions a week ago.

Going e-bike after all?

efosOver a year ago, I’ve reposted an article about why I wasn’t going to ride an  e-bike quite yet, but…. I’m not getting any younger and I find the longer you wait, the harder it gets to go back to frequent bike rides again. So, as the month of may is also the month for holiday bonus, I’ve started searching for information and reviews on e-bikes and suppliers. And yes, I’m gonna do it!

Pessimisme kun je leren!

Lovely anthology of dutch verse by Lévi Weemoedt (Izak Jacobus van Wijk) selected by Őzcan Akyol.
Easy to read and accessible little book of verse / poetry. Also for those who never read poetry before and/or those who are learning the dutch language.
The “pessimism” in this little book will bring a smile to your face.

Android changes

At the end of 2010 I bought my first android device, a Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 5.0. A 5 inch device with no phone function. A mini tablet so to speak. To replace my old usb mp3 players, which were very limited as far as storage was concerned and didn’t have internal speakers. You might remember these little players:

Light up flagpole for my trike

Although it has been about 6 months since I’ve last rode my trike, the cycling bug starts biting again. It seems that this bug may slumber but will never die (fortunately). In the meantime, it’s wintertime. So short days and many dark hours. Especially for an convicted early bird like me. That’s why I’ve been looking into lighted flagpoles for my trike to get a bit more visibility and safety.

Santana – Black Magic Woman live

It’s been years since I’ve last bought a vinyl record. But recently I came across a live Santana album at the Aldi. A concert from 1978. And as I’ve recently bought a record player again I thought “Let’s get this one”. To me, playing these vinyl records has it’s own charm: wiping the dust of the record, putting the needle into the groove, relax and enjoy! 😎

Clear enough! Right?

For the last couple of weeks at work, I’ve been busy moving the warehouse from one building to another. It’s proven to be quite the job, also because of less than perfect communication and co-operation from those “on the higher levels”. But me being me, I’m going for it with. Putting some muscle into it with some music and a big wink to reality. Just going for it…

New garden shed

While it’s pouring with rain here at the moment, I’m happy that we finished in time building a new garden shed. The shed that came with the house when we moved in here 13 years ago had seen better days, so we demolished it last year. Only the floor remained.
