About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Saturday Something, Gig Street

Like I promised, my favourite band in the South of France, Leonard Blair and Gig Street...

The quality of this video is rather average, but the music is great. I hope you'll enjoy it!

Sixteen tons, and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in dept?

Well what do you know? Ain't that the truth!
Halfway through our vacation today.
Are you counting the days for my return yet?

This rendition of the song is VERY different from the one I am used to -- even so, I really enjoyed it.

Hey...I like these guys too! I browsed their other YouTube offerings. Looks like they are regulars on the market circuit, eh? Waving back at you from Red Bell Farm on a beautiful Iowa morning!

I've always LOVED that song!!! Why did I assume that in FRANCE they would be singing in FRENCH? Hm? I'm sO American! ... I knew I was going to LOVE these guys - just from looking at them! This was just GREAT Jientje! THANK YOU!

Love this, I remember the original, from the '50's, Tennessee Ernie Ford.
