CCS, a 'serendipitus' discovery seems appropriate: see the newest 'encarnation' of Holland in Focus (1970) by Yank, Mr. Jules B. Farber, who brought his family to his work assignment in Amsterdam. MANY 'day trips' and personal history, as with his having collected the very "Dutch" tiny coin--a sort of meta4, for "Holland"--a "dubbeltje with a likeness of the spirited Queen Wilhelmina...and surely the smallest thought and 'cutest' in the world?" Well, if one can FIND this very Holland in detailes-focus, it is fascinating; sidbar, for eg. to the Pilgrim Paters at Leyden, who "sheltered here for twelve years before sailing off to the New World." Simon Scama's "Rembrandt..." (1990) has "Rembrandt Harmenzen Van Rijn" born in Friesland Province, NL, but some 'sorses' say his father was residing in Leyden/Liden. My "inFAQ" file, aswere to questions most sane people never thought to ask! Just a thought(?) in passing.

As much as I admire the Queen, it should would be fun to go to a Coronation!
The Royal Couple were so gracious with the crowd when James and his family and I saw them in the Dutch Village at Bowling Green during the 400th celebration.
