About Me

Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{2009-09-19 My Domain: MariettesBacktoBasics.com}

My Domain Name: MariettesBacktoBasics.com has its 3rd Birthday! It looks like the time ahead of us is looking good. The end of 2009, I was in excruciating pain and that resulted in being almost completely paralyzed by January of 2010. Again, in September of 2010 we ran out of luck as husband Pieter, out of the blue, had heart problems and needed open heart surgery... Not much time for my business than. Neither for blogging. Last year in September, I was all set for it and well prepared but my Domain Name expired... The advertising company that set up my business had closed up everything and left my Domain Name sitting, without passing it on to me, neither telling me they went out of business... For about three weeks it was off the air. My new webmaster tried his very best to get it moved, but he couldn't and the password was not to be found... I had to buy it back from an Auction on October 26, 2011. 
This is our veranda, our most favorite room of the house, next to the bay window of our kitchen.
I just did a post about our veranda, it is in the side bar as one of the most popular posts, you can click it if you have not seen it yet.
Wish I could pour you a nice cup of tea and sit down together...
This third birthday is reason enough to celebrate!
My winning bid for buying my own Domain Name back almost had me do the Happy Dance!
Funny how my Domain Name: MariettesBacktoBasics.com in Domains Registered on 2009-09-19 appears on the Internet, followed by marijuana-cigarette...
But how could I have known about this weird alphabetical line up? 
That marijuana business is not even around anymore but it's stuck  here on the Internet forever it seems like.
If you click the pink hyperlink, you can scroll down to this section below:
Not even the mariettafitnessexpert is around anymore... 
Looks like a bad match; being sandwiched in-between those two companies.
Never mind, at least I'm still there! 
That's the connection with my blog: Mariette's Back to Basics...
Just like to thank my loyal readers!
Do you have your own Domain Name?
Did it come with some funny stories or weird mentions too? 

On September 17, 2018 I let it vanish...


  1. Wow! Think of everything you, your husband - and the blog domain name! - have survived together. I'd say this is definitely cause for celebration, Mariette. Happy third anniversary! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  2. happy third birthday! sounds like you've had your ups and downs getting here!

  3. Congratulations Mariette, on getting your domain name back! You have been through enough already! I do have my own domain name, but my son is an IT expert and he set it up for me for some time in the future if I need it. Computers and the internet are a mystery to me! I do like the illustration of your home on your web page. It is very nice. xx

  4. Happy 3rd anniversary, dearest Mariette!
    Yes,it can take a long time with ups and downs to get there, where you want... But you made it!
