Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine80 - Her name was Katja and her body has been preserved in the ice for these past 50 years, it's only due to climate changes in the Swiss Alps that her remains have been uncovered. This news sets off a series of emotions for both Geoff and Kate, as they are only a few short days away from celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary with a big party full of friends and family.
