In Canada for some strange reason the Dutch people always refer to the "Netherlands" as being "Holland" even when they are from the other provinces of the Netherlands. I've asked several first generation "Netherlanders" why they do this and they all give me blank looks and say "I don't know why we do that" It must be the water over here. :-))) Nelson E. Denton R.

(back) Subject: Humor lists From: Shirley <pnst@itw.com> Date: Thu, 25 Sep 1997 11:53:10   There's been discussion on this list lately about general humor lists, and hopefully with Pete and Dave's indulgence, I post this:     I'm willing to try a mailing list for the "best of" the humor I come across.   There will be nothing regular about this, and some days you may receive 4 or 5 emails from me, other days, you may receive nothing.   The humor represented will be "clean"... but I don't promise 100% non-offensive. A sense of humor is a personal thing, and what's funny to me, may not be to you.   Also, while I will accept potential contributions to my personal mailbox once this is up and running, there will be no posting to the humor list allowed from anybody but me.   To subscribe, follow these directions carefully:   Send email to pnst@itw.com, with the Subject SUBSCRIBE GIGGLE. In the body, please put your email address where you want the humor mail to be sent and your name (or the word Anonymous).   DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS MESSAGE, SINCE THE DEFAULT REPLY-TO FOR THIS LIST IS TO THE LIST! As it is, I'm disregarding policy that I helped set nearly a year ago by posting this in the first place, so please don't prolong it by responding to this via PipeChat-L.   Ducking and running from Pipechat's Administratve team, Shirley :)

Indeed, in the middle ages the country was smaller and was called Holland. After a conflict with to-day's Belgium both countries were rearranged and now the official name of the country is 'Netherlands'. Nowadays we have two provincies, called Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland.   greetings, Tom     -= Tom Lammers =- T.Lammers@fontys.nl
