Sunday NIght

Computer is working better than ever.  Found an updated software package for my HP 5590 scanner that works like a dream.  Skype is working well for me from home for the first time.  Talked to two of my kids, no problems, third one connection problems.  Still better than 35 cents a minute.  Thirty years ago it cost that to call Rosetown from Regina, now we complain if it costs that to talk half way round the world.

Am working on a tight deadline to finish a business plan for a client on Vancouver Island. I subcontract from a friend who does the legwork and financials, while I do the internet searchs and the writing.  Dumb questions are referred to my friend who digs out smart answers.  This is about the fourth or fifth such collaborative work we have done.

Masha was here today for the afternoon.  She and Maxim played together while Tanya cooked up a storm.  Speaking of which, we have winter here now. Snow and -7.  Our furnace (hot water) is acting up again as it does every year when it gets cold.  The repair man was here and told us teh same thing as he told us last year.  We need a new chimney or something like that.  Anyhow, Tanya will handle it.  she is the pro general contractor.

Andrei needs the car tomorrow which is good because it is filthy and he always washes it.  Now that it is cold it will stay clean anyhow.

Time to get back to work.


  1. How the heck do you wash a car when it's -7?

  2. Same way you wash it when it is -20. Close the door on the wash bay.

  3. I had to laugh when you mentioned your furnace only acting up when it gets cold. That might be because it doesn't get used when it's warm outside. lol

  4. The roof only leaks when it rains, too, Dana.
