Dear Smoon surfers,

Coen and his wife Linda Janssen, welcomed a perfectly healthy baby girl on the 28th of January. She is the first Epica baby and she is such a precious little girl.

We've all seen the photo on the Epica main page, but it is almost impossible to capture the sweetness on camera. In real life, babies smell so good, their skin is like silk and all their little sounds are sweet music to the ears.

On Saturday the 26th of February, I met Cato Dianne Janssen.

Cato is pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable.

I am very proud of Coen and Linda, they did an amazing job. I wish them all the luck, happiness and health. I feel privileged to know her, and look forward to witness her growing up.

Smoon's Snoepjes (Smoon's Candies)

Hello Smoonsmurfs,

It has never been a secret that I love candy. Call me Candy Queen. What I'm about to tell you, is a story that my dad has told me many times.

My sister, Janneke, was born on my second birthday in '87. When we were in the hospital, he asked me what I wanted to have for my birthday present. Where as many little children would pick out a big fluffy teddy bear, I wanted to have the biggest Smarty box they had. That is where it all started. People around me are always shocked when they see how much candy I eat. I am happy that it doesn't affect my weight. My dentist is not so happy...

I don't eat Smarties anymore. Once in 3 years I eat a couple, just for the memory. I prefer the normal M&M's.

My current obsession:
These are so tasty! They contain 6 flavors; Lemon (my favorite), Cherry, Strawberry, Raspberry, Pear and Huckleberry. I am consuming way too many of these! Be ware! These are highly addictive!

Katjes, yes yes yes!
