Hi esher-ga,

Do you want current or past information? How many years can we go back
to pull these examples. Can you give me any examples of things you've
seen? When you say a Dutch audience, do you mean people located in
Holland, or Dutch in the US?

other point it is people actually in Holland. hope this clarifies
