This is work

September 8, 2017 - It's hard not to love my job. A couple of trips up to the Pitt this week for work, and a visit to an Island site to test some equipment and help out with some injections on some broodstock from a stock of concern. All that makes for another week in [...]

This corner of the world

May 22, 2017 - This weekend was awesome. It started Saturday with a run to the insurance agent to “finally” insure the motorcycles, and that was followed by a not-too-short and not-too-long ride to remind myself that this machine is a very, very different animal from the little scooter that runs me around town. It was nice [...]

May 6, 2017 - It’s been an interesting few days. Kirk told me to take a week off of work and I’d assumed we were to be going somewhere since it’s my birthday in a couple of days, except that I didn’t want to go far from home because of Loki and what’s been going [...]

May 2, 2015 - After two days of helicopter training, really all I wanted to do was stay in bed this morning. But we couldn't, because today is Sailpast, the official and ceremonial opening of boating season for Burrard Yacht Club. And we were going out on the immediate Past-Commodores vessel so couldn't drag our [...]

Safety First! (108/365)

April 18, 2015 - Today was the safety inspection of our boat down at the Club. Passed without issue, didn't think it would be a problem. The issues we are struggling with on our boat are bigger than a safety inspection looks for. Kirk is now rebuilding our hydraulic steering system, and that will fix [...]

April 11, 2015 - Just some glittery table confetti at tonight's annual gala for our volunteer boating organization.. What a great group we have been associated with for these 16 years we've been volunteering. When I think of all the wonderful people we've met and learned from, it just makes me happy to know that [...]
