Spring is one of the four temperate seasons, the transition period between winter and summer. Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and broadly to ideas of rebirth, renewal and regrowth. The specific definition of the exact timing of "spring" varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. At the spring equinox, days are close to 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses.
Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born. The term is also used more generally as a metaphor for the start of better times, as in the Prague Spring.

"Here Comes the Sun" is a song by George Harrison from The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road.

"Here Comes the Sun" is one of Harrison's best-known Beatles contributions alongside "Something". The year 1969 was a difficult one for Harrison: he was arrested for marijuana possession, he had his tonsils removed, and he had quit the band temporarily.

Harrison stated in his autobiography:

"Here Comes the Sun" was written at the time when Apple was getting like school, where we had to go and be businessmen: 'Sign this' and 'sign that'. Anyway, it seems as if winter in England goes on forever, by the time spring comes you really deserve it. So one day I decided I was going to sag off Apple and I went over to Eric Clapton's house. The relief of not having to go see all those dopey accountants was wonderful, and I walked around the garden with one of Eric's acoustic guitars and wrote "Here Comes the Sun".

Here Comes The Sun Lyrics

Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's alright

Little darling
It's been a long, cold, lonely winter
Little darling
It feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's alright

Little darling
The smiles returning to the faces
Little darling
It seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's alright

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling
I see the ice is slowly melting
Little darling
It seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and i say,
It's alright X2

Someone Like You

There are songs that give me goosebumps and shivers down the spine.
One is "Someone Like You" performand by Adele.

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins (born 5 May 1988), better known simply as Adele, is an English recording artist and songwriter. Adele was offered a recording contract from XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on MySpace in 2006. The next year she received the Brit Awards "Critics' Choice" and won the BBC Sound of 2008. Her debut album, 19, was released in 2008 to much commercial and critical success in the UK. 19 was certified four times platinum in the UK. Her career in the US was boosted by a Saturday Night Live appearance in late 2008. At the 2009 Grammy Awards, Adele received the awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

"Someone Like You" was written by Adele and Dan Wilson for her second studio album 21. The piano and blue-eyed soul ballad was inspired by a broken relationship of Adele's, and lyrically it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it. XL Recordings released the song as the second single from the album on 24 January 2011 in the United Kingdom and on 9 August 2011 in the United States. Accompanied only by a piano played by co-writer Wilson, Adele sings about the end of the relationship with her ex-boyfriend. The song received positive reviews from music critics who chose the song as a highlight on the album and praised its simple sound. The lyrics and Adele's vocal performance in the song were also praised.
At the 2011 Q Awards, "Someone Like You" was nominated in the category for Best Track. The song was also nominated in the category for Best Song at the 2011 Music of Black Origin Awards. "Someone Like You" received the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards, on 12 February 2012.

"Someone Like You"

I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, "

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I'd hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Even Apeldoorn Bellen

The phrase "Even Apeldoorn Bellen" now belongs to our national heritage. We are now to the 52nd  commercial in the series from Central Administration Achmea. This time it's about two guys who go, with their classic car, to a car show. This commercial was filmed near Miami, in an area that is often used for dragracing. For car lovers: the lowrider is a 1965 Ford Thunderbird.
In this new comercial two guys go to an American car show.
Actually it's a thankless task to devise a new commercial for Centraal Beheer Achmea. The level has been raised enormously high, thanks to the success of some of the previous commercials. This new commercial delivers not more than a smile on me. 
What I like, is that there are many small jokes are processed before the final joke in the movie appears. The flirting, the almost-arguing with the other car owner, lowering the car when parking, the billboard with the text ' When it's not Bob's it ain't a wiener ' . Compared to those little jokes I found the final joke quite predictable. I find ' Birdie ' not a bad commercial, but also not one of the better in the series.

Centraal Beheer is an insurance company sited in Apeldoorn, Netherlands. It is part of Achmea, the largest insurance company in the country. It is usually referred to as "Apeldoorn". Their Offices are well known for their architecture by Herman Hertzberger.

Centraal Beheer is famous for its campaign of TV commercials that has lasted for over fifteen years now. These are short humoristic spots, generally without dialogue, in which something goes horrendously wrong, followed by the catchphrase "Even Apeldoorn bellen" ("Just call Apeldoorn"). This phrase is sometimes used as a general saying, in meme-like fashion to mean something like "oops" or "D'oh", and it is for this reason that the company is generally referred to with the metonym "Apeldoorn" rather than its proper name. On the international versions of the commercials, the catchphrase is "Just call us".

For instance - a nervous man is offered a place in a secure witness protection program if he will testify against a mafia leader. He accepts and testifies. Then he packs his bags and drives off to an idyllic, friendly town in the middle of nowhere. Unpacking and settling in, he breathes easily once more. Then the doorbell rings. He opens the door ................
Many of their commercials have won the Gouden Loeki, the so-called Academy Award for Dutch commercials. 


For us Europeans it would be a short night. To save time, everybody could come in there sleepwear.

No matter if people would sleep in PJs, shorts, long-johns, sleepshirts, cotton, silk, or even NAKED....

DJ Monkey Dean and his sexy host Sinny did rock the beds.

We had a great party.

You're Not You When You're Hungry

Snickers is a brand name candy bar made by Mars, Incorporated. It consists of peanut nougat topped with roasted peanuts and caramel, enrobed in milk chocolate. Snickers has annual global sales of $2 billion.
In 1930, Mars introduced Snickers, named after the favorite horse of the Mars family. The Snickers candy bar consists of nougat, peanuts and caramel with a chocolate coating. The bar was marketed under the name "Marathon" in the UK and Ireland until 1990, when Mars decided to align the UK product with the global Snickers name. Snickers traditionally have around 16 peanuts in each bar, and more than 99 tons of peanuts go into making over 15 million Snickers bars each day. There are also several other Snickers products such as Snickers mini, peanut butter, almond, dark, white chocolate and even ice cream. 

In 2008 a Snickers commercial starring Mr. T was been pulled in the U.K. In the commercial, Mr. T shoots Snickers bars at a speed walker in the "Get Some Nuts" ad campaign.
Complaints were filed over the Omnicom AMV BBDO London-created ad, calling Mr. T's actions homophobic and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation began talks with the candy bar manufacturer. Mars issued this statement about the Snickers brand commercial, saying, "This ad is the second in a series of U.K. Snickers ads featuring Mr. T which are meant to be fun and which have been positively received in the U.K. However, we understand that humor is highly subjective, and it is never our intention to cause offense. Accordingly, we have pulled the Mr. T Speedwalker ad globally.

It was just the year before that another Snickers ad faced controversy. During Super Bowl XLI, two mechanics accidentally kissed and had to do something "manly" to make up for it. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the Human Rights Campaign complained about that commercial and it was pulled from TV and the Internet.

In 2010, Betty White and Abe Vigoda appeared in a Snickers commercial, playing American football. The commercial was ranked by ADBOWL as the best advertisement of the year. Later that year, Snickers commercials featured singers Aretha Franklin and Liza Minnelli, and comedians Richard Lewis and Roseanne Barr A 2011 commercial featured actors Joe Pesci and Don Rickles.
In 2012, a new advertising campaign was launched, based around men turning into different things when they're hungry, depending on the commercial's location or what variety the commercial is showing. The UK version featuring men in a changing room turning into Joan Collins and Stephanie Beacham.
