To be or not to be ?

i was born in Amsredam on the 21 November 1951 of which i remember only a few good things;going to court for bracking a glass pane 15cm by 15cm which unfortunately belonged to headoffice of the Dutch incometax payers.Then i was invited to play for Ajax foodball club but only made it once to the training field when my parents desided to emigrate to South Africa in 1963;we daparted from Rotterdam to Southhampton where we borded the Athlone Castle for oure voyage to Cape Town;from there on to Sasolburg where my father worked as a fitter and turner or (toolmaker)i whent to school but never finishing it i started working when at 15; 24 out of 7 days shifts and lastet 2 years in it; when i realized education education is what i needed so i became a apprentice in the motortrade indusry where i finished collage whith distctions in all subjects.i worked for 3 years as a mechanic on trucks ferrari lamborgini etc and then joined Britich Leyland as a quality controler and from there on never looked back.It whent up and up the ladder of promotion as if there was no end in sight and there was not if it was not for the strikes they had in the UK, but in the background my marriage was running out of love and left me whith two children which i raised myself in the meantime; with full knowelige of mannagement they never compaind on the contrary, they stood by me like a rock in the ocean.Then i married for a 2nd time and was transfered to Johannesburg where joined Truck and Bus where i met some verry intresting people;miss.Thatcher never joined the weaponembargo of which i new from my time in Cape Town but became fully aware in Johannesburg where i met people whith knowledge of warfare beyond belief i dare not say who where and when.But all tings come to a end just as my 2nd marriage which came at the right time and at the right moment.This is Alexandrie in short
