The Netherlands in May to warm you up and motivational video

   Get Up The Courage

Courage is a trait. Like all traits it can be improved. No one is born with highly-developed courage. We are all born as helpless infants.

Regardless of how little or how much courage one presently has, there is an ongoing need to gain even more

-- and everyone can learn how to accomplish this.

Their dazzling colors are thanks to the years in the 17th century when tulip mania swept the
Globe and the most eye-catching specimens changed hands for a small fortune. But like a
Rainbow, this colorful landscape is a short-lived phenomenon. When the flowers are gone,
The land will be cultivated for a rather more mundane crop of vegetables. The Netherlands produce more than nine million bulbs a year ..
