When my aunt invited me for vacations in summer, she told me how much she would like to be able to watch again an interview my father had on TV around 30 years ago, when he recieved the maximum Prize for science my country gives. She just expressed a wish, but I told her her that I could make it come true. I have the interview and I had it changed from the original movie watching machine (name please?) to the DVD one. Now, after many trial and errors, I made the thingie work. I will not be able to watch TV tonight as I don´t want to upset what I did by chance. So, tomorrow after lunch, I´ll show my aunt the interview. I will probably do little mylotting tomorrow as I have to prepare a nice meal for my aunt.

No. It was the machine that came before the DVD players.

Do you mean that you had registered the interview on a VHS and you transferred to a DVD? This is what I am doing with some old movies that I have on VHS.

That´s exactly what I meant. I had forfotten the word VHS. I still have a VHS for old movies but this recording needed repair so I changed it into DVD at the same time

@marguicha I still have a VHS player, but the old tapes seem to fade with the years.

@marguicha You still had a VHS? I could not as there was so little space so I had to give it up for the Dvd. But I did have a lot things recorded too, Films, Ice Skating and things like that.

That's lovely that you've been able to make your aunt's wish come true. What do you think you will cook for her?

That´s easy. I´ll repeat the mussel and prawns risotto I made last week. My aunt reminded me she did not eat meat during this weekend.

@marguicha I've been told risottos are hard to make. I've never tried one.
