I really missed watching our favorite news programs the most, and while I try to at least scan the headlines everyday, I am embarassed to say that I sometimes go days at a time before catching up on the major news stories! At last, I thought, I can catch up on the news!  So during the first five minutes of television in our home yesterday afternoon I watched the live morning news from the the States, and these were the top stories:
