It's like running through quicksand!

Hello everyone! Just a brief note from work to thank you all for your messages of encourgement and inquiry. The Grand Duchess and I are settling into the new and improved Stollen Central very well. . . with one notable exception.

What should have been as simple as the telephone company throwing a switch to transfer our exisiting phone and interenet connection has turned into an ongoing pain in the you-know-what.

After two days of calling (from the grand Duchess' office no less)and speaking with several different branches of Verizon, I was finally told that the earliest a service man could visit was next Wednesday April 16 -- ARGH!!! So, I've busied myself with unpacking, practicing my guitar, and setting up the painting desk in Der Stollenkeller. More on all of this, along with a few pictures, as soon as we are up and running. Stay tuned.

All the best with the Stollenkeller and surrounding house. I await your return to us with enthusiasm.
Best wishes to you both in your new home!

It is good to hear that you and the charming Grand Duchess are getting settled.

As I recall, getting phone service in the house we first rented up here was a nightmare. We got here during a phone strike and it took almost a month to get service.

Hang in there . . . and think of the positive side of things . . . no telemarketers are able to reach you right now.

Lani and I send our best wishes to you.

The best of luck, Stokes! My girlfriend is having similar trouble with Charter, so I know what you're going through. I hope to see you back soon.

Best of luck with your new residence. Here in the Reich Duchy of Beerstein, we rely heavily on couriers as Verizon is always a concern.
Best regards,
