When Signs go wrong

Richard Wiseman believes that strong beliefs and a sense of humour are exclusive. This might explain the failure to see the subtext of the sign out side a christian school in Penticton.

To which I want to say

Ohhh Yess Ohh Yess.

Bagels and Blogging

Back in the Kootenays this week. Blogging Live form Castlegar.

In this weeks news all the firewood has been hauled up to the area around the cabin. So at long last I can relax and enjoy my time off no longer worrying about a sudden snow fall covering up my precious wood. Since I got back from the coast not much has happened. But I do have some photos worth sharing from the last week or two.

I had a excellent cooking experience thanks to the kindness of some friends. I got my hands on a moose roast. Mmmmm. Not having much experience cooking roasts I picked my mothers brain but I think my gut was on the right track from the start. The moose was stabbed repeatedly and garlic pushed into the cavities. The beasty was seared and left to simmer in a slow cooker for much of the day with some thyme, olive oil, a shot of red wine. At the end of the day the meat was tasty and tender, I could have eaten Potatoes with the pan juices all day. Thanks Alfi.

Lunch Time Quicky

Vancouver the second full day here

Today I actually did some business, getting some paper work started with the goal of avoiding burning through my savings. To do this I walked down to my old works home office, at last I got meat the folks there who were either names on a screen or voices on a phone.

Yesterday saw me walking around town with my camera for what felt like 6 hours, my legs are stiff today. But thanks to a new zoom lens for my camera I was able to take some good photos.

And by the way the Crow has whipped cream on its beak from raiding a pudding.

Adventure Blogging

Nerd Reasons for getting a life.

It might happen to some people that they get a life simply so they can blog about it. For me having a life is quite independent of blogging as I was blogging before my life got as interesting as it is now. However an increases quality of life those increase content of post, or it would if the act of living did not take a way from both the time and desire to blog. This week I find my self in Vancouver staying in a big shinny hotel down town. Having spent much of the morning and early afternoon walking around doing very little shopping I found my self with tired legs and slightly sore feet time for a break.

I flew here from trail yesterday, an airport that I truly can enjoy, no fuss just give bags to counter wait a few minutes get on plane. The flight was a little over an hour the weather light clouds. Points of interest on the flight were for me the Dominican Radio Observatory and Mount Baker, the clouds put on a good show as well.

So enjoy part one of the big trip.
