Our home town - the good city of Lier
I'm retired now. In my former life I was a CPA employed by private companies as CFO. Today I am living happily with my dearest wife Suzy, in this gorgeous small city of Lier, near Antwerp in the kingdom of Belgium. We are happily married (1972) and have a son Ben(1976), who is living nearby at walking distance . Ben aka BVerelst is also a member of SingSnap®.
Retired in 2008, I found a time-absorbing hobby as a genealogist. Interested? Visit my photo's and family tree at ==>link http://www.genebase.com/node/rverelst
This is a laborious hobby because our own ascendants are unable to talk to us and can only communicate through some old documents about their life’s. So this is a hobby for the entire year.
I also like fresh water fishing just relax at the border putting my reaction capacity (smile) and patience to the test.
For the rest we like to divide our year in 3 four-months’ periods when we take a vacation break wherever the weather, the food and drinks are appealing to us.
Our summer break is by car, usually to the Provence or South-West region in France.
Of course there is music. Born in 1948, I grew up in the era of golden 50 and 60’s and still have lots of memories, "music and other" going back to my teenage, twenties and flower power period.
I like to sing. I easily learn new songs just by ear. So if I come across a new intriguing song, I go to listen to the original on you-tube and about 30’ later I can record it on SingSnap®.
I became addicted from the first that I joined as a gold member. I registered on Aug. 14, 2009 and recorded 7,433 songs representing roughly 5 songs per day so far in 1,366 days elapsed until May 20, 2013. I do believe this constitutes a new all time record within the entire SingSnap® population. Time to reconsider! On Feb. 7, 2012 I withdrew some 330 duet songs nobody listened to nor was font of anymore.
I aim on doing Today 3 songs maximum per day where-off at least one complete new song to me. The number of double songs tend to increase and form only ballast. So I will try clean out the stables and remove the oversize that accumulated over time...
NEW TIME SCHEDULE - I will be on SingSnap®
most every day either from SingSnap® time from 01:00 – 04:00 a.m. (or my time from 07:00 till 10:00) or as an alternative to that on SingSnap® time from 09:00 – 12:00 a.m. (or my time from 15:00 – 18:00) and from 3:00 - 5:00 pm (or my time from 21:00 - 23:00).
I will try to stick to this schedule. Private messages will always be replied to a.s.a.p. and within this new time schedule. My life will once again be mine (smile).
I have always been singing. After the school choirs, I joined my home village choir "Dennen galm" (pine wood echoes) back in 1965. I always liked singing, though there was no room for it in my profession. On a employee and staff party there was a karaoke attraction. When I tried it my Suzy heard me singing for the very first time in our life. I amazed her for the second time (smile). My singing is far from perfect, my voice is easy to listen to, my reach is average and I like singing. In so far as that I am today addicted to SingSnap®.
Thank you for being my guest on these pages. Thank you also for your kind interest, for signing my picture-guestbook underneath and I truly do appreciate your listen & comments to my songs.
With my warmest sympathy & greetings from Belgium.
