7.7.2010 … gearing up for battle with South African Airways … How dare they reschedule molls’ last leg … maybe because it is during the finals of the World Cup … hmmmm …

followup, FIFA World Cup 2010:  Well …I again have flights for the Molls … after 3 1/2 hours on the phone … and they really tried to help, but the bottom line is that South African Airlines cancelled her last leg because there was a better economic use of the plane in light of the World Cup.

FIFA World Cup 2010:  I do like it that the Netherlands has  an historical reason for their ungodly orange uniforms.

Prince of Orange is a title of nobility, originally associated with the Principality of Orange, in what is now southern France.

It is carried by members of the House of Orange-Nassau, as heirs to the crown of the Netherlands, and is also seen carried by the pretenders by members of the House of Hohenzollern. It is currently carried by Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands (Orange-Nassau), Georg Friedrich, Prince of Prussia (Hohenzollern) and Guy, Marquis de Mailly-Neslé, Prince d’Orange.
