LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Thank you😊

I second Flyngirl's request. I like reading what he writes; very thought-provoking.

You're welcome to all. His writing isn't just informative, it's such a joy to read. He is a joy to know.

Quite entertaining and makes you think. At first I thought it was going to be a satire like Swift's "A Modest Proposal," just with puppies.

Am I the only one who didn't think the idea of eating dog was strange? People in China do it all the time. A friend of mine ate dog while he was over there. He also took advantage of the fact that he understood Chinese but people around him weren't always aware of it, with some humorous results.

It's fun to do that. You shock people when you answer them in the other language.
