Last night I telephoned my friend in Nanaimo and as the house phone was being used thought I would ring her on my lap top on Skype. (phoned her house phone). whilst we were talking I told her I was using the lap top and she said ooh can you see me. Just burst out laughing.
That reminded me of when we first came here and I was always putting the weather channel on the TV. One day I said to my husband 'where's this place called Dewpoint, it always seems a lot colder than Nanaimo' I dont want to repeat what he said but more or less called me stupid. I had never see dewpoint on weather forecast before in UK, and knowing there was a place called Dukes Point, well just lets call it a senior moment.
