You Are DPTV
am writing from British Columbia's beautiful Okanagan Valley. We are just north
of Washington State and have our own wine and fruit country, plus boating and skiing
etc. But you can rest assured that the splendid quality of DPTV will always draw
us inside to watch the latest terrific series like Midwife and Selfridge's. We
are avid DPTV fans and you are one of the finest examples of the good side of
the Internet!! Thanks.
