Here is the guy clearing the entrance to my apartment in Les Gets this morning. Oh how I would love to have such a machine 🙂
High winds prevented access to the Northern slopes of Mont Chéry today, so hopefully lots of new runs there tomorrow.
Here is the scene at the mid station today:
Finally managed to get the new Air working as well today with its illuminated keyboard, after making the mistake of transferring all the old files locked with snow leopard requiring me to reinstall Lion (over the slow internet here). Just have to get used to the QWERTZ keyboard now 🙂
Oh dear it has been officially noted that I’m been very lazy. Just received this from Amazon:-

Just had this great email from the last tenants in my Les Gets apartment
We’re all back safe, sound and much refreshed having had a great time in Les Gets.
The apartment was clean, comfy and well appointed and helped us to have a super skiing trip. As you said the pistes were firm but most had the fresh snow- cannon snow making the local area very extensive and we were certainly enjoying the blue skies and sunshine.
I’ll get your keys returned in the post on Monday.
I’ve taken the liberty of attaching a group picky.( I’m the guy on the end with the bright hat )
Once again thanks very much for the facility and hopefully we’ll be able to use your place again.
So even with poor snow conditions you can still enjoy yourself in Les Gets.
Emails like this makes it all worthwhile, especially that I now have Helen & Chris doing a full clean on the apartment after each letting 🙂
It first refused to instal the button in Picasa. in the end I closed Picasa down and then clicked the link in the plug in! That seemed to work fine.
After a brilliant start to the season, with La Grand Ourse having a spectacular New Years Eve party & mega dinner (€100 a head ) on top of Mont Chery (lifts provided in their adapted piste basher) folks are now getting worried with the warm temperatures and rain. Lets hope it cools down a bit quickly!
Just finished reading about Mark Zuckerberg in “the Facebook effect” such incredible talent and still so young. Pretty impressive that the author David Kirkpatrick was given such access to the leading guys and investors. I bet the guy who sold them the Facebook domain name wished he had taken the stock option he was offered when they changed from thefacebook.com .
I’ve also spent a bit of time creating a new website for our good friend Kay who has just qualified as a Celebrant!
I’ve also fitted a current cost meter and bridge onto the apartments electric supply so that I can monitor electric usage and internal temperature from anywhere in the world 🙂 If you have a gmail account and want to see the readings please leave a comment and I will send you a link.
