10/3/07 After the long Hiatus

Can’t take too long now, believe it or not, but I’m headed out from visiting with my brother, Frank, in Gold Beach, Oregon, which was very good. I’ll be visiting my “godparents” (I named them that) in Yuba City, California, who aren’t doing very well, and then on to Davis and the Mandels and then… Read more »

9/23/07: Twilight Watch, Salt Springs, and Chainsaw Bears

Friday, Duncan, British Columbia Hello friends. It seems to be getting busier as time goes by. Ah, less time at “Inns” and more with friends. So, I had thought the Hazells lived on Salt Spring Island, but that was a mis-apprehension. They live in a little town (at least the postal code has this name)… Read more »

9/20/07 evening: Kamloops!!

Well just to let everyone know that I’ve made it to Kamloops!!! I’ve been in touch with Mark Hazell and will be there tomorrow night (barring unforseen inauspiciousness). The top right photo is of a mountain in Banff Naitonal Park near where Lake Louise would be. Decided not to go there though so as not to… Read more »

9/20/07 morning: Wild Flour and the Three Tows

September 20, 2007 Sorry guys for taking so long to make this post, but I’ve been somewhat trapped in Banff. I’m sitting in the Wild Flour Cafe eating granola, compote, and yogurt, drinking Free Trade “Three Sisters” mild coffee and cream, looking at what appears to be a rather threatening sky. AND it has free wireless. (As… Read more »

9/16/07: Trippus Interruptus

September 15 Had a wonderful day with the Johns’. Went to the “Kensington” district with Frank to meet up with Amber Rutledge, who I’d met (mostly on-line) when I’d done a project for Chris Tamdjidi and Shambhala Europe. They were going to check out a a potential meeting place for a nascent Calgary Shambhala group…. Read more »

9/15/07: Winnipeg to Regina

September 15. I’m sitting in the Lorraine and Frank’s “rec” room in Calgary writing this. I’ll be off tomorrow headed for B.C. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get to the keyboard, but my neck has been hurting, that unidentifiable kind of pain that feels like nails on chalkboard. So resting has been in… Read more »

Lake Superior and Secret Doors

September 12, 2007 I’m writing from Pam Johnson’s place (used to be Wimberley) in Regina, Saskatchewan. I keep getting hypnotized watching telly. They just aired a segment on eye laser surgery. Hmmm. Anyway, I’m trying to do a bit of catchup, so I can move along more smartly, though I’m getting to a phase where… Read more »

September 9: Inuksuit Abounding

Sudbury to Wawa Just outside of Sudbury, I saw the Falconbridge nickel mine (at least I think it was the Falconbridge mine. I took a pic for the sake of my work as a Production Editor and Mining Analyst (of all things) at Metals Economics Group until I decided I didn’t like mining, nor capitalism… Read more »

Backtrack: How Now Brown Cow?

September 8 Well, Saturday saw me leaving Sudbury and headed as fast as I could book to Winnepeg, no, Thunder Bay, no, maybe WaWa.   You may remember a while back when I said I had been missing great pics of cows (and horses). I finally captured some in greater rural Ontario. However, as pictures… Read more »

Backtrack: White Mountains and Blue Skies

September 5 and 6 This is a backtrack to September 5, after my visit to Annie. As you may remember I was heading for Vermont and Suzann Duquette. White Mountains The day before I left Annie’s, I’d had my 80-km check (about 1000 km later) of the Buick’s “torque.” I’d had the front struts and… Read more »
