Town of Verdeoot

Post by Paul RT on Fri Feb 26, 2010 1:07 pm

I was in a class studying parenting. The tutor referred to the town of Verdeoot that was historically significant in itís effect on parenting theory.
I then walked into a bathroom to find that someone had left a bar heater on. When I asked why it was on I was told that the fuse had blown on the regular ceiling heater or light circuit.

Maybe it refers to my children sowing their wild oats?

Thanks for your input guys

Hi paul,
Was it spelled exactly like Verdeoot or did it sound like that?

Verdelot is a town in France "Vezdelo. Headquarters of the Benedictine monastery of Notre-Dame-de-Verdelot where we honor the statue of Our Lady of Mercy, so heavy it could not be moved to the Revolution. Church at the graduation of the abbot of Chezy.Ē

Hi Hind's feet

Yes, I saw that video. There are also some "adult" content videos produced by a Dutch porn producer by that name.

If the dream was a message from God I don't think that's where He's leading me Scratch Chin

I don't think so either. I still can't figure out what that word means. I've run into many words like that, that online translators won't translate. I'm trying to find something in slang dictionaries.

I watched most of the video hoping it would give some clues, still couldn't figure it out.

I think it would be a good idea to ask some random Dutch person on FB

that video clip is just some teenagers talking about a fly they've killed.. verdoot in this case is just a slang word for killing (the squashing of the fly). Don't think this clip is related to paul's dream though..


Verdeoot isn't an actual existing town in the Netherlands either, that's why i was checking the spelling earlier:) However, I just found out that Verdoot, or Verdoodt comes from Van der Doorent (which means a place that grows thorny bushes, like brambles..) This place is/was in the dutch speaking part of Belgium.
I found the same name (Van der Doorent, mentioned in something from 1145 and 1151, talking about Walterus and Arnulphus de Spineto(=van der Doorent) talking about an old known family line living in a castle (hof ter Doorent) in Belgium. This name of the castle ter Doorent also talks about it's meaning as 'a place where thorns (doorns) grow', this place name was later changed into Verdoot and Verdoodt.

Don't know if this helps paul, but this is what i've found so far:)

Thanks Traveller

It's likely that the meaning goes to the parenting of my 4 unsaved children

I'm finding that the meanings of many of my dreams going back two years are only coming to light just now, so I'm not worried about getting getting a clear message immediately.
