Another new BABY :) & Internet agony >(

Yes, a tiny little fury 4 legged creature is curled up sleeping close to my heart! We have a baby squirrel. Looks like a little male. He fell from his nest, and was completely COLD when I got him. So - it's two nights along, and he is doing great! Eyes open, and drinking well. I think he is about three weeks old already.
On a very frustrating / sad / infurating note - my 17 year old email account has been compromised. In the last week, I've been bombarded with over 2000 undelivered messages. I have sadly had to delete the mweb email account, and have opened a new one. It is effective immediately. Please update your records! My new email address for ALL correspondence is shiawela@gmail.com
I have yet to copy my address book accross and send you all an update, but I will try to get to this. I have so many critical email messages that need to be sent out and I am physically unable to get to them all immediately. Please bare with me. If you are waiting to hear from me with your itinerary and contract, please send me an email to my new address, as I can then reply to your message and it will automatically add you to my address book.
I look forward to hearing from you... and so sorry for any inconvenience to you about this problem.

Home sweet home & a new precious life!

This is going to have to be headlines!!! Sorry folks, my rambling days will come again, but with so many emails needing to go out, this is all I can do right now...
Home safely, after 3 weeks away - what a joy to have shared this trip with the kids. Disney World was just amazing. THANK YOU RICK!!! It was awesome... Will load photos when I can.
Biz and Shawn's wedding was special beyond words. What a joy, honour and privilege to be a part of it all. My photos all seem blurred and it appears we were having too good a time to stand still for any focus... ! But I will share what I can when I have sorted through them all. She looked amazing - yes OUR BIZ IS MARRIED!!! Wow. I know I was not the only one with "Wedding Withdrawals" when it was all over. I cried so much - all with JOY! Thank you so much Ted and Rosemary - what an awesome and treasured time... memories forever!
The two weeks in Charleston FLEW, and many special friendships were rekindled - thank you ALL! We just love ya'll, and you know we will be back!
Dad and Mom are very well, and as always - our amazing support and back up. Thank you for everything!
Our dearest Champ had to have his back leg amputated, so we are nursing him now. It seems that his little foot was not functioning any more and with all of the dragging, it got infected, and would not heal.
We have another baby buffalo - a bull :) born about two weeks ago!
Nicol and Karia had another son today!!! Wynand Victor weighed 3.33 kgs and is 51 cm long. Another beautiful little baby!
Micaela was very excited to get back to her beloved school and friends. JohnD also back working - they both now have REALLY experienced jetlag, and it's quite funny
Conditions here still very very dry. :(
Big hugs to you all - the BALLS IN THE BUSH!
