    Signs In Dutch Are Cool.

    Yes, I look Dutch, the blond hair, blue eyes, the whole nine yards.  But what I am the most proud of is that the signs that we use for our homes are made by my family and has for many many many years.  My last name was Z--K, which if you are dutch, you can fill in the...
