Computer Problem

I think I may have fried our home computer... Apparently the network card wasn't screwed in properly and I was jiggling with the network cord and I pushed the card out of its slot and it caused a brilliant luminescence to flare up and the computer died. Now the computer turns on but does not proceed past the motherboard diagnostic. I firmly believe the machine is, as the Germans say, kaput.

Further posts may be delayed until we find a new computer and I can't buy a new computer until I know the system requirements of Starcraft II... A real dilemma.

Mary's Visit

Mary just left and her visit was very pleasant. We got many parts of our house cleaned and ready for summer. She got to come to us to many restaurants in town and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The weather has gotten better lately and we went on a picnic yesterday afternoon to Reid Lake, 45 minutes down the highway. The sun felt great and the kids even ventured a bit into the water.

Winnie's Baptism

Unfortunately, our camera was misbehaving during Winnie's baptism so we were only able to get a few shots. Our friend Jenn has more on her camera and she promises to give us a CD so I'll have more later.

The weather is still cold here, -10 in the morning, +5 in the afternoon. Hopefully it will get warmer soon!

Naphan Grandparents' Visit

The elder Naphans have been here for about 10 days now and it has been very nice. We have taken them to our favourite restaurants and shown them all sorts of things around the city.
