The annual Brittany pilgrimage

All this moving about is getting a little bit difficult.  The kids just got back last night, Nat having faithfully put the three of them on the train in Lille.  I got to Le Mans just on time and met them there and they were so glad to be back, but full of stories and impressions of Darvell.

After a nice evening together with Martin & Jenny and their seven children (prepared for us all by Laurent & Raffaëlla) Raph and Camille packed up the Jumper and were off first thing this morning.  The annual Verley pilgrimage to Brittany is on!

God bless Raph & Camille for their love!  We pray for all nine of them, that they have a great time together.  After a mere half an hour gone I happened to be on line and saw Raph's pictures starting to come in from his new Blackberry at flickr.  Check the photo-stream to see them.

What do I do with this now?

Maybe I'm showing my age now but does anyone else have problems like this? I have this "old" (dates from 1971) reel-to-reel 5" tape that I'd like to listen to. How do I do it? Of course it needs to be digitalized now and rendered to a burnable CDA or maybe a MP3 file format. All that would be child's play if I still had a reel-to-reel tape player.

Let this be a lesson to me.  Hang onto that tape player, record player, or whatever it is.  Once that machine is tossed out all hope of ever reading the media again is lost.

Does anyone reading this know of a company that specializes in this sort of digitalization?
