Yep, famous Dutch saying RT @book_of_norman: @ndw Is that a phrase similar to "Get all our ducks in a row"? If so, I think we should use it.—@JWvanWessel
@JWvanWessel @book_of_norman sounds more like "keeping all the balls in the air" or "keeping all the plates spinning."—@ndw
@ndw @jwvanwessel I like it. Not been able to use it yet however.—@book_of_norman
