About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Thanks, TG! Mind you, I suspect that we all got the mail… Those trained stats monkeys are just a subroutine or two running in a server somewhere. Still, nice to see how we are doing.

    Cheers, and all the best for 2011!
