Working with joy
It is time to write a blog again. I always love telling people about my work.

I am spending a lot of days behind my desk, so great challenges are in the internet conn...

The time that is given to us, seems to be so short sometimes, but on the other hand, sometimes it seems so long. The one year flies by, while the other year seems to be endless. Sometimes, everything seems to be useless, and other times, the light beams through life. We all know a story of somebody who has had a diffucult time, but we also hear ...
