Are you ready for some football?

Not much going on at the Prickril compound, but the pace should pick up as we get closer to Christmas. B's mom and dad will arrive to join her sister Marina, who's here taking a German course. Our friends Luciano and Lucila will also make an appearance with their son.

In the meantime, we still haven't resolved the issues with our phone/internet but seem to be making progress. Looks like we'll go back to T-Comm. I can assure you I'm not pleased.

On the silver lining front, we decided to get cable TV with Kabel BW. We signed up on Thursday at Mediamarket and by Saturday the receiver (with DVR) and smartcard had arrived in the mail! We installed the receiver on Saturday night and were channel surfing in minutes. I'll now be able to catch some pro and college football games on NASN; B will be able to watch a Brazilian network (Record). Just a quick tip for other expats.

You may want to check out KabelBW's internet access plans. It's cheap, you can get an IP phone flatrate and most importantly: say "Good Bye" to TComm once and for all.
