    Yes, we are all well in our new winterhome, 3 miles from here.

    The guineapigs and the rabbit moved too, the cats stay at our summerplace

    for now.

    We even have a small aquarium again, with our favorite fishes(pics on request)!!

    Though a lot of things work(ed) bad in the mobile home, it is wonderfull.

    And the maintenence guy comes really quick when we need him.

    I really miss internet there, but it has it's upsides; more time for other stuff.
    -------------------------

    Since my digital tv thingy doesn't get signal there, i bought a sattelitedish

    this week. It was on sale at some do-it-yourself supermarket.

    Took me some time to assemble the dish, it hardly had directions with it....

    All proud i succeeded in building the dish properly, i searched a place where

    i could find decent signal.

    A really big pole deep in the ground close to our neighbors dish should make

    it easy to point it in the right direction.

    But bummer; it took me ages.......

    Once i had signal, it was bliss. Sooo many shitty channels to choose from... (573 tv-channels, 280 radio..........)

    But big fav is the Travelchannel!!!

    And for nighttime TVBerlin.........

    But yesterday it turned out i placed the dish where it wasn't allowed!!!
    (asshole neighbors...)

    Have to start tuning allover........
    ---------------------

    We take prozac over to our small caravan every other day, so he can roam

    the camping he knows. If we can't catch him by daylight, he mostly walks in

    our neighbors caravan, who calls us, so can can come pick him up...
    (ohhh, sweet neighbor..........)

    ----------------------

    Really great about the new place is also i can use my oven/grill and deepfry

    pan again. At the summerplace the fuses blow up from that......

    So i can make french fries again!!!!

    ----------------------

    But best of all is still the warmth!!!

    Less pain in my joints, back and muscles.

    And Fre doesn't have to walk around with two sweaters...........



    Warm Greetz,

    Hi, Yogi

    Glad to hear of the upsides but they seem equally compensated with the downsides - I know you're positive enough to get thro' that tho'

    Your neighbour is an arse, what does it matter with him where you put your dish. Be satisfied that in taking it down your karma > his karma.

    Are you any nearer to getting t'interweb to make an appearance in the winter palace? I'd go a bit stir crazy if I couldn't get online a couple of times a day to read mad folk's ideas. Say hi to Fre
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    --Good for them if they survive.

    Hi, Manky!!

    You are right. Though the asshole neighbor is a she. An American lesbian.

    (The kind that married the wrong man and blames all men for that..... )

    She was disturbed by the fact my dish was lightgrey, instead of the black all

    others have........ People...........


    I think no chance of internet, unless i want to do it through sattelite......

    Way too expensive, esp. since Fre still hasn't found a new job.

    (Our animals alone cost more than i make..... )

    So i sit here, freezing cold, but internet.

    No water, so i have to take bottles with me to make coffee......



    And yes, i am mostly positive, though this time of year is allways a little

    harder............


    But as long as there is Fre, there is hope and happiness!!

    (Says hi back....)

    It is new to us too, JPaul....

    We bought the caravan because we had to live somewhere, after being evicted

    from our last house.

    With the intention of having a regular house by now.

    But we just don't want to go back, so we decided to rent another place for

    the winter, cos it is too cold and humid in the place we bought.

    (I have reumanoid arthritis, amongst other things.....)


    It is hardly practical btw, all the moving, stuff in two places, etc.

    But we feel privileged, cause it is sooo beautifull and quiet here!!!

    (Also a good training in case we 'll emigrate to Portugal.....)


    Some of our friends cannot imagine living like this.

    But most see what we see and love coming over, though more then two

    guests are a crowd here .......


    Grtz,

    Yogi
