Sorry to fill up your inboxes – but we went even higher this time and got a brighter panoramic view. Who knew there were so many trees in the world?!
For the past couple of years since Grandpa Oiva moved to the city, Kenny and I have been trying to walk up for the mail when it suited.

Kenny for the past many months has been labouring to post a new Minecraft video nearly every day, and yesterday he posted his 100th video! I’m very proud of his determination, and would like to share it with anyone who is willing to give it a quick look at, maybe thumbs up, or maybe subscription … Read more
