Lunch Talk on "Endless Energy" NEW
Date: 02/10/2015 at 12:30

       Lunch Talk on "Endless Energy"
“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.” Arthur C. Clarke’s (one of) Three Laws

Cold Fusion is an almost impossible invention. It promises inexpensive, clean, and virtually limitless energy. It could provide clean water to Planet Earth, zero-emission vehicles with unlimited mileage, a solution to the climate crisis and much more. It is world changing technology. Yet, the prospect of this unparalleled energy source is surrounded by controversy and suspicion. A dividing force within the scientific community and the media, is Cold Fusion too good to be true? And if this new energy technology were real, how would we need to prepare for it?
Curious and open to the unexpected? Join us for an unconventional lunch talk with Mats Lewan. Skeptics are welcome!

When: Friday 2nd October, 12.30 – 2 PM
Location: Communicated to registered participants (EU area)
Fee: €10 Non members / Free Members. Sandwich lunch & drinks included.  

Registration is required. Places are limited to ensure that participants get the most out of the discussion.

BLOC has to downsize its costume collection so they are organising a jumble sale to sell off some items that are in good condition but never used.

Items on sale will include little (and not-so-little) black dresses and skirts, "baubles, bangles and beads" (possible Christmas decorations!), evening gowns, jackets and blouses, seventies retro, kaftans, hats, fabric and some fantasy/exotic items. This event is mainly aimed at the ladies (Sorry Gentlemen) as women's clothing makes up the majority of the collection.

Encourage your daughters to come as teenagers often see possibilities in second-hand clothes that others don't. There may also be items that could be used at Halloween.

From: "Christopher Lalor" <chris.lalor@hotmail.com>


Have stippled out a route for Sunday. I suggest starting at the McDonalds car park in Mechelen instead of the station, there are large works going on there it's tough to 
find a place to park close by.

Coming from Brussels, take exit Mechelen Noord, head for centre, 1st traffic lights you come to you'll see McDonalds on your right. Next to it there's a large free car park.

10.30am, tyres pumped and ready to go Emoji Forecast is 20° and sun.

Along the way we can stop at a place I've been to, you can have a snack, full lunch or just a drink 
and there's plenty of place to sit outside. 

Looking forward to seeing everybody, just let me know if you can make it. 
Chris

Visit to Van Gogh exhibition in Mons

Visit to the “Van Gogh in the Borinage”exhibition in Mons

It was while he was in the Walloon coal-mining area of the Borinage, from 1878 to 1880, that Vincent van Gogh abandoned his career as a preacher and decided to become an artist. This exhibition takes you through this crucial period, during which the artistic ideas he developed largely set the course for his work. With some 70 paintings, drawings and letters by and from Van Gogh, the exhibition portrays the sources of inspiration at the beginning of his artistic career, and depicts the living conditions in the Borinage at that time.

Kam Klub
Date: 28/03/2015 at 20:00

Return of Sally Ironmonger. Sally and husband guitarist, Brian Carter, will be the star attraction at the next Kam Klub on Saturday 28th March.Sally

Sally and Brian have performed many times at the Kam Klub to enthusiastic audiences, but not for a while. Once a five-piece band they now appear as a duo, performing mainly their own songs – ranging from the poignant to the hilarious! The emphasis is on entertainment. Those of us who saw them at Broadstairs Folk Festival can confirm that their new songs are even better than the old ones. For those who have never seen them before, this is an opportunity not to miss. Take a look at the website below, where you can read all about Sally, the songs, the CD and the reviews, and listen to some of their songs.

Brussels Bookswappers Club and concert
Date: 26/11/2014 at 19:00

The Brussels Bookswappers Club meets once a month at Le Chapelier Fou, 190 chaussée de la Hulpe, 1170 Watermael-Boitsfort.  A chance to swap any unwanted books, DVDs and CDs with an extra attraction this month, see message below:

."In addition to our usual eclectic mix of books, DVDs, CDs on offer for free... we are delighted to welcome singer/song-writer, Otto Cuppens, from Louvain who will be performing some of his own compositions, accompanied by guitar. He taught himself to play music listening to Bob Dylan & by association acquired a liking for folk music from the sixties & country music from the thirties, forties & fifties, ending up discovering Willie Nelson & Townes van Zandt.

So once you've found a few 'new' books to keep you going until next month's meeting come and join us downstairs afterwards for a drink, or bite to eat & hear Flanders' answer to Bob Dylan perform some truly moving songs?!  As Otto is travelling early the next day for work the concert will not go on too late - he'll probably play two sets of about 20 minutes depending on who's around at the time.  So do not miss this opportunity & help make this a fun evening to be remembered"
