Watch this hilarious video about the use of Facebook by the elderly. If you don’t understand Spanish, what’s below will definitively make you regret it. It was posted on Facebook by my fabulous aunt who joined Facebook just a couple of months ago, and immediately shared on her wall by my 70-year-old mum who just joined Facebook as well and who is, just like my aunt, showing a remarkable ability to use it. To put things in perspective: a month ago my mum asked me to explain to her what a blog was…Tags: Facebook, Family, Fun, Spain

The good thing about being of foreign descent is that when the Football World Cup comes up, you can support more than one team, which means you have more chances to win.
I’m far from being a football fan. Some of the rules are still an utter mystery to me. But one thing is for sure, when it’s World Cup time and my mind is set up on one team, I turn into a real hooligan.
So I felt like showing my support on Twitter by using a Twibbon. I started by adding the French flag to my avatar on Twitter. But looking at the poor result of France against Uruguay in its first game, I thought it would probably be a good idea to support more than one team. So I decided to add the Spanish flag to my avatar, as that’s where my father comes from. But that’s a little nationalistic so I thought I ought to add the flags of the countries I lived in and love i.e. the Netherlands and Belgium. However, as Belgium did not qualify, I put the Dutch flag only. Here’s the result:
Come and do the same on : http://twibbon.com/worldcup !
May the best team win! But if we could avoid Italy taking that position this time, it would be cool (very bad 2006 memory)Tags: Fun, Sports, Twitter, World Cup
