  1. My ancestors were Belgian. On St. Patrick’s Day, when everyone else wore green, my mother would have us kids wear blue. Apparently “blue” is for Belgium. At least that is what she told us!

    1. Thank you reading Sue. Wow Blue is for belgium, you see that is something I learnt new today. That is why I love writing and reading, you get to know so much from fellow bloggers.



  2. Tremendous shots, and mm-mm, Belgian beer. Especially the Trappist variety. You’ve made my mouth water, and it’s still only breakfast-time. But then I seem to remember the last time I was in Belgium, some locals did drink beer in the morning.
