Born in Gouda. Taken to Sydney, Australia, in 1956. First being in the company, – often – of theDutch-born immigrants of my parents, feeling loyalty to Dutch “roots” but Australian “education …..is NOT a SIMPLE matter! Please understand!
Perhaps, it’s a basis for understanding that we HAVE ‘one’ only world and that we all want the SAME basic experiences out of life!!!
…….. Jo Mulholland – was Joop Mul

A “Double-Dutch” entry, I believe!! But worth letting you know!!
DO visit the Dutch-Australian Cultural Centre, when it’s OPEN (Do check!) located
THROUGH the Dutch shop, ‘tWinkeltje, in SMITHFIELD (Sydney, NSW).
The NAKED truth is that I’ve been ‘posting ’till the cows came home’!!
Not that I can tell anymore!
The cows grazed on the dyke / dike / dijk that we could look at from our windows, in the Burgemeester Gaarlandsingel 35 ( My address then! – until 1956) .
Just before migrating to Australia, in 1956, at a friend’s home, I was allowed to watch the THEN brand-new TV!!
Hasn’t technology gone ahead in leaps and bounds!!! ???
But – then again – THAT’s how it works!!!
As was explained to us, at a primary school teachers’ in-service course, in the Sutherland Shire (Sydney) a long time ago!!
Jo Mulholland was Joop Mul. IS Ozcloggie!!!
