Phew, did you notice that, nearly went down again...

Anne, yes, the holiday time (in norway it's minimally 4 weeks, in the Netherlands it's minimum 5) is all paid. There's a slight difference in the first year between the countries where in Norway you don't actually get them paid in the same year but you accrue them by working and get the money the year after when you take your holiday. In the Netherlands, accruing is on a monthly basis so after every month you work, you get 2.1 day holiday or something like that. Of course in Norway that means that after you retire you still get a payment the year after from the year before. Also, you are allowed and recommended to still take a 4/5 week holiday in your first year but it's just not paid right then...

Yes, I did noticed that...I started to panic for a second but I decided I had to compose myself being that I am at work. I do have two glasses of water and a bottle of aspirin right next to me. Martinis under my desk for "EMERGENCY USE ONLY".

Ok, I get the vacation system there...actually some companies here do the accrual of time worked to earn vacation time but of course they max you out at 2 weeks per year or three weeks per year until you've worked there for about 100 years, then you can have 4 weeks off...

I have very slow speed dial-up service, so unless the hang-up in loading is more than 5 minutes, I just blame my IP. Hopefully we'll have wireless before the end of the month - just need to cut part of a tree down for line of site. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, I'm done.

That is why I have to do most of my posting here at work. At home takes forever, I am still dial-up. I dont want to upgrade cause I dont use the computer too much at home...DSL isnt cheap yet.

Peter. please wake up... TP is being assimilated by aliens again... Just a heads up! (Sam's probably asleep by now.) Things are taking a monumental time to load, if they load at all.

Thanks guys!!
