Hated Chores

I despise ironing, and I turn thread into knots when I try to sew buttons on anything. So I tend to buy clothes that don’t require ironing, and clothes without buttons. If there is a way to avoid doing the [...]

I helped a fabulous group of people make many babies this week, baby salmon that is. The eggs in the cups in the photo are future Cultus sockeye salmon that will hopefully come back to Cultus Lake in four years [...]

Bits & Bobs

…the silly paraphernalia one seems to collect when one has engaged in multiple 365 challenges over the years. All of this, and much more, lives in a very old metal lunch box that I acquired in my grandparents basement, long, [...]

We were headed for Whistler today but, as we were about 10 minutes out of Whistler, we rounded the corner just south of Daisy Lake and the traffic came to a standstill. It turned out that just 15 minutes before [...]

Lest We Forget

If we don’t make an effort to remember the sacrifices that men and women made for their countries, we will be doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. It makes me glad to see how many people turn out [...]

It makes me sad that, as I post things on my blog, my two little soulmates are slipping away and being replaced by new posts.

I’m not ready to say goodbye, so I’ve tucked them over here on the sidebar. They were such focus in my life for, so long, that it breaks my heart to not see them when I start and end every day. To have lost them both, so close together. I will never stop missing them.

“In science it often happens that scientists say, “You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,” and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again.

They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful.

But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.”
