We are so far out in the country here that we have to use satellite broadband. The best Telecom Italia can provide is a dial-up along the old copper wires with speeds that would make a snail look fast. For some reason every Sunday the server for the satellite provider seems to work really slowly - I guess it's when they do essential maintenance. Anyway, the snow and ice have finally gone - Wilf was out this morning rolling and frolicking in what was left of it - but by lunchtime the sun was out the temperature was rising and spring was on the way. I managed to do some olive pruning but the potholes along the dirt road to the house became the priority - the little cars suspension was finding it hard to compensate for the deeper craters.Off for dinner now with our nice American neighbours , will blog tomorrow.
