Facebook & the Internet

How amazing is Facebook!

We are off to London at the weekend and yesterday I got a friend request from a cousin who I haven't seen since I was about 12 years old. Her name is Vanda too. She was named after me :O) The funny thing is, she has just moved to London from the North of England.

Then today, Gemma phoned saying she had found one of our German students on facebook, Uwe. He stayed with us a couple of times in the 90's and kept in touch with us until he moved to New Zealand. We were thrilled to hear from him again.

Unfortunately we haven't been so lucky trying to get in touch with Brian, Andrew's Godfather (& Mum's cousin). Andrew & Brian have stayed in touch for years until recently. We found out why today. Gemma found this obituary online on the Boston Herald website ...
