Re: I smiled because...

because I've just got my first ever text from my grandson in the UK - Skype is great, but with text we can communicate direct without parents having to put Skype on - hurrah.

Re: I smiled because...

... and again because I just got back my ancestral family 18C Neuchâtel clock- with the insides all cleaned out and chiming like a trooper (in a separate room and far away from our bedroom, lol). It had been 'sulking' since my father died in 2009 and it was moved here - so it's wonderful to have those childhood memories back.

Re: I smiled because...

Because we crosscountry skied through a lovely area, fast and wild, the descends made us laugh so hard I still can't believe we were actually able to navigate and stay on the track.

Ski, snow and sun adrenaline - the best. Well, some of the best.

Re: I smiled because...

What a great thread.

I saw on Twitter a man pushing his son on a skateboard area, he son was in a wheelchair but was having such joy from the experience.

My farther spent most of his life in a wheelchair so those smiles which you get when others pushed him around, as I did when I was younger are priceless and perfect.

When the money in that card is spent, then it is "deactivated" And I am pretty bad in memorizing these things which you don`t need to track everyday. But the amount of joy, when the card is working again, is limitless

Re: I smiled because...

ahhhh sweet. I remember Ye Olde Days, when I had to go to the launderette on the bus with my washing, in my early days in the UK. Then I moved in a bedsit above a launderette, and got friendly with one of the ladies who worked there so it as much easier.

But yes, I remember my first washing machine- what a blessing, especially with a new baby and lots of terry nappies (1973)
Enjoy

Re: I smiled because...

... because I just read on the LPO website that Golden Eagles have returned to the Jura near Geneva after a VERY long absence- and it seems as they might breed there for the first time in over 100 years. Wonderful. Hopefully they will also colonise the cliff faces nearer to us soon.

La ligue de protection des oiseaux a recensé trois couples dans l'Ain entre Gex et Bellegarde. Un autre couple tente de s'installer depuis deux dans le secteur de Saint-Claude et des Hautes Combes.

Re: I smiled because...

We were able to get a great cheap and not really beat pair of skis for my kid. She can't wait to try them.

And - I just got back from my Alma Mater. I saw both departments of my double major, and they are flourishing. The uni is super quality, quadrupled in size, brings standards, innovations and progress to the region and jobs, too.
