WOW! I can't believe that it's almost a month since I last sat and updated my blog. Despite the best intentions of writing something weekly, it just hasn't happened. This has mainly been due to our Internet connection completely failing for a month and there is never any time to write anything at work (as there shouldn't be, really). So I am a month behind with all updates from The Great Bear.
You have therefore missed out on our encounters with the GAI, the Russification of my name and a variety of other adventures: not to mention our anniversary. However, you have not missed out on Nataly's birthday, which falls tomorrow. More on this in the next day or so.
