Thinking yesterday about childhood and innocence reminded me of an old family video Catherine made in 2001, showing our daughter Anna (then 2 yrs 4 months) seeing snow for the first time in her life. Having located it, I spent a merry time faffing about trying to port it to my laptop via a memory stick. When it wouldn't play, I suspected an obsolete format, and tried VLC and various other worthy applications recommended by fellow twitterers. In the end, in desperation, I manually set up an Ethernet network with an old hub from the loft, banged in a few RJ45s and ported it directly to my desktop. Result: Magic! Here, for the first time in 8 years, Anna’s first sight of snow from 2001.

Really pleased you were able to transfer this Bishop Alan. So cute! The wide-eyed innocence of children; something to be truly treasured.
Many thanks, Paul. Anna was impressed, too. She's now in year 5 — secondary school soon!
Such wonderful, wide-eyed excitement - they grow up so quickly. My daughter is now 9, and thankfully still has the ability to gaze in wonder. It reminds me of a Pink Floyd line "In a world of magnets and miracles..." (oops, showing my age there!).
Came across your video and it simply brought a smile to my day. Thanks for that.
