February 23rd, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

February 23, 2018 - Would you like to know how to cripple the city of Vancouver? It’s really quite simple. Just throw this at it. Really, it doesn't even take this much. All it normally needs is a cm or two and everything grinds to a halt. But this, this is apocalyptic to some Vancouverites! [...]

Goodbye Terrace

February 2nd, 2018|Amsterdam 2018, Travel|

February 2nd, 2018 - A few months ago Kirk said he was going to a massive trade show in Amsterdam, Integrated Systems Europe, the largest AV and systems integration show in the world. I love Europe and if it was a chance to go and save some costs, then I was clearly going along too. [...]

Here we go again….

January 1st, 2018 - It's a bit of a ritual, a tradition, though I don't much go in for traditions as a general rule..... but I always try to find a cherry blossom on January 1st to share with my best and dearest friend, I don't think she really ever appreciates the effort though. :) So [...]

Foggy Days

December 10th, 2017|Just Thinking|

I was out at UBC on Friday for some meetings; one with IT regarding a new platform my online courses are being moved to, one with a Faulty member over some compensation discussions, and the last with a former colleague regarding a research grant proposal I started out offering to help facilitate sample acquisition for, [...]

Weather

It was a bit of an all over the map sort of day where the weather was concerned. Hail, rain, sunshine...all that and more on a drive to Chilliwack this morning, and again on the way home this afternoon. If you live in Vancouver, a good umbrella is an essential part of life. 117 Photos [...]

A Frog’s Perspective

September 17th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 17, 2017 - Yesterday was a gorgeous day. It was a bit brisk in the morning but fabulously warm by early afternoon, so we grabbed the boards, tossed them on top of the truck, and headed for Sasamat Lake, a spot that we'd never visited even though it's so close. A wrong turn landed [...]

Capilano Canyon

A little rain yesterday seemed to freshen the world up and bring out the colour in everything again, it’s been a long time since some water fell from the sky. I know I’ll be moaning about it in a few months when it won’t stop, but right now it's a welcome change. After a visit [...]

A little friendly competition

September 10th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 9, 2017 - After months of dry weather there is a bit of cool ari and some rain, not enough to do much for the forest fires raging in BC and south of the border, but enough to both make us grateful for the moisture and also drive us indoors for some weekend entertainment. [...]

Smoky Sunrise

August 30th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

Yesterday I had two morning site visits to make on the Island, and an afternoon meeting at the Biological Station. Since two others were coming along and they were both from the Station, I opted out of the ferry and one of them did the driving. I love taking the float planes across the Strait, [...]

A sight for sore eyes

August 13th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

August 13th, 2017 - Rain….it is literally a sight for sore eyes, and sore throats, and sore lungs. The smoke from the forest fires burning inland has made the air quality in the Lower Mainland the worst it's been for a very long time. Its been compared to Beijing recently. But as bad as it [...]
