Here are a few of my favorite online haunts:
[This is the site I visit to fantasize about
living in Toronto again, which is almost
day during the winter]
Jonathan Cainer's Zodiac Forecasts
[This is where I visit in the morning, when
I need a positive spin on things past, present
[This is where I go to see what Canadians
are up to, sometimes I even buy things from
the businesses listed there.]
Environment Canada Weather
[This is the site I visit every morning,
and before every road trip during the winter]
weekend Luna, Janus, Imp, Elf, Tink,
Benny and Bim came for a sleepover.
Imp and Elf are great fun, we jumped
on Gramma's bed (well Gramma did not,
but Imp and Elf did), we drew pictures
together, we baked together, we played
in the snow...
Tink was a delight. She is just over
four months old now and is "talking"
up a storm. She watches everything that
goes on and you can tell she can't wait
to get in on the action.
They are a delight, Imp, Elf and Tink.
Luna and Janus and family brought us
a digital picture frame filled with
pictures of the grandkids.
Attila and I bought a vintage bedroom
suite years and years ago. The price
was right, even though it came with
two twin beds. We kept the twin
beds, thinking we might need them someday.
Well, we haven't needed them, but it
seems that Imp needed a big girls bed,
and so one of the beds has gone to Imp.
Luna will probably paint it and make
it beautiful, and I'm sure it will be
lovely. They will pick up the other
bed next time they visit, and take it
home for Tink to use in the future.
I've no work lined up till the middle
of February. I am taking this opportunity
to work on my genealogy database, entering
more and more census information. I
am quite surprised by how much more
work is needed on the project, and I
am enjoying it very much.
We had rain over the weekend. Last night
it snowed and today we are under a snow
squall warning again. Luckily we have
no place we need to go, so we need not
venture out in such weather.
I decided to experiment with the iTunes
store. I've put it off for a very long
time. Yesterday I chose an inexpensive
movie, setup an account, purchased the
movie and then downloaded it to my hard
drive. It all worked rather smoothly,
and I am impressed. The movie I purchased
was an older Robin Williams film, Bicentennial
We have a satellite TV account, but
to be honest there wouldn't be more
than a few hours a week of programming
on it, that we would consider worth
watching. It is one of the things that
give up first when and if finances get

On The Screen
"What is it about grandparents
that is so lovely? I'd like to say that
grandparents are God's gifts to children.
And if they can but see, hear and feel
what these people have to give, they
can mature at a fast rate."
