“OzCloggie” = Dutch-born Australian

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 ‘Dutch’ – “take” on the president of the U.S.A.! ~ I LOVE it!!

Funny!!  !!!!!!!!!!!

Click on ‘funny!’

Oh!!!  PLEASE take a look!!  Go past the Dutch introduction to the piece!!!

You’ll enjoy this ‘take’ on the president’s speech.

Leave to the Dutch to “take the Mickey” / ‘puncture the hype’!



My “first post”? I cannot believe it!!

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!!!
