  • Dilemma: Offloading old tech

    Ok, so here’s the deal. You want a new com­puter, or iPad, or BluRay play­er or whatever. But your old one is still work­ing per­fectly fine. Yet, the fea­tures of your next tech­no­lo­gic­al acquis­i­tion are so good, so cool, that really, that new tech item will make your life much better. Great, so you go…

  • Winter Hoodoos

    The big snowstorm that hit Edmon­ton on Decem­ber 4th and 5th was accom­pan­ied by rather high winds, which depos­ited and sculp­ted the snow­drifts in my yard. Inter­est­ing shapes resulted.

  • Alberta Legislature Ice Sculpture

    We went to the Alberta Legis­lature last Thursday to listen to A Joy­ful Noise choir — Tess sings in it. The night was warm and we parked at the oth­er end of the Leg. The Christ­mas lights were in all the trees, and in the centre foun­tain was this very neat (and col­our­fully lit) ice sculpture.
