TEST....this is a test for Nate and Heather. I've set you to receive the blog every time it publishes. Does this get through the filters? You should get an email from Choosing Joy/Blogger with text and photos (well not in THIS post). Oh shoot....I'll find a photo so we can see if it works.
Hopefully, China will eventually let you access Blogger and Facebook...but in the meantime will it let you receive emails from blogger? If not, I can also try to subscribe you to receive the blog as an email via feedburner...but I know you were having troubles with feed.
If you receive this in your in box....and it works...email me back at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know it worked.
For all family - as soon as we have our own place with fiber optics Internet, we'll have Skype and be able to call and talk at will....for free or .02 a minute. We just don't have that option right now....unless you want the whole computer room to hear the conversation....slowly. LOL
Also - for the rest of family....I set the blog to publish to FB so those FB fanatics can read it there...or let me know and I'll add you to receive them in your email from blogger too. I can add 10 addresses. I have none added at this point. Aunt Gin used to enjoy this. All my trivia without having to log on. LOL You can also sign up via the link in the side bar if you don't live in China. LOL
Now, which photo of the hundreds since we've arrived in Japan would Nate and Heather most enjoy? Hmmm...
G-rated Sumo Wrestlers (thanks again Mike)
Sign I find delightfully funny
Or - proof that we made it to Japan
