This used to be the palace of her Majesty Queen Juliana, the mother of our present Queen Beatrix, who lived in the Palace of Soestdijk as a child with her parents and three younger sisters.

Yes Dina, I just pressed on the funny little man and some other buttons. You are looking for S words. What about Sabbath, shalom, sabbath meal.

Thanks for asking about the zamboni. It is used to clear the ice before, during & after use of the rink. I think I'd like the job!
You can see a picture of one here (ice skating & hockey are big here in Minnesota):

Have a great weekend.

Thank you nonizamboni, for the kind words, for the recipe, which I shall copy if you don't mind and for the explanation of the zamboni. We have the same kind of engine because skating is very popular here too, but we call it a mopping machine.Thanks!
