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 [...]

Anderson Lake

August 16th, 2017|Just Thinking|

August 16th, 2017 - Any day that work involves riding the motorcycle to a hatchery, and then taking a fabulously scenic drive to visit a spawning channel and look over the debris field from a landslide, and visit a gorgeous lake, is always a good day.

August 2, 2017 - There was only one thing on the agenda today, work. And work hard.

I'm not really laughing today though, since there is still no resolution for, nor any apparent attempt to resolve, my problem with the move [...]

June 21, 2017 - I had a hunch I’d taken a photo something like this before.....last year probably, and I did, last year I took this photo: So I wondered what I’d thought about that day and dug back through and found this post. It seems sort of philosophical, kind of thoughtful, but I have [...]

May 15, 2016 - Riding the ferry home from the Island today I skimmed Facebook and came across a post by someone I follow. The quote in the post resonated with me given something I am struggling with currently. Books. Books are important. They transport us to other places, other times. They introduce us to [...]
