Let there be Light!

We're finally back to the land of the living! Today's visitor was more exciting than Santa Claus will ever be -- the telenet cable guy was here to install our cable tv, internet and phone. We have wireless internet now, so we're able to communicate again, and to Michael's delight we are hooked up with the cable channel NASN - the North American Sports Network. On tv right now is hockey night in Canada (the Leafs vs. Florida just ended, and we're now watching Vancouver vs. Phoenix). Later on tonight, a few of the NFL games are going to be on - Michael is worried that he doesn't have enough beer to last him the whole night. :)

In addition to the sports channels, we have the national geographic channel, 3 discovery channels, the History channel, BBC World, Al Jazeera English, MSNBC, BBC 1 and 2 and a bunch of movie channels. So we are very happy with our English-language line-up, and Michael will continue to watch his daily shows in Dutch to help him improve his skills in that language.

We'll be posting more now that we have our link to the outside world back, so come back often!

It was great to finally talk to you and see you on Skype. You look wonderful and I'm so glad we can be connected again. Jane, I'm looking for something to read so I'm going to see if I can find your latest read.
Talk to you soon. Love, MOM

Jane and Michael; Have a great Holiday season. Did enjoy hearing your voice on Saturdy, Jane. Cleao, an Egyption Mao cat, belonging to Allan and Deb. Doherty, your cousins, and I are spending the holiday together. She is named after Cleopatra. She is eight. They are going to her mother's, in Simco, for the holiday, back the 27th.Love, Nana
