September 28, 2012 - The University of Victoria is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend, with tours and demos and other activities. It is an interesting place filled with interesting people and research. I would encourage everyone who lives nearby to take this opportunity to visit the campus and learn about all of the exciting things going on there.

September 9, 2012 - Happy Grandparent's Day to all the grandparents who are an important part of their families. Grandparents have always held a very special role in the lives of their grandchildren, and in these modern times it is more important than ever. So show some appreciation for everything they do for their grandchildren and tell them how important they really  are!

September 4, 2012 - It is the first day of school throughout the country, and time to start into a new year of learning. May it be a fun and productive one for all students at all levels. 

August 29, 2012 - I have definitely been living on the west coast for too long - there was a 3.0 earthquake a few miles away today and I didn't even notice it!

August 18, 2012 - Congratulations to cousin Michelle and her new husband Steven on their wedding! May you have many happy years together!

August 18, 2012 - For those who are interested in such things, I have now posted a few photos of my camping trip.

August 11, 2012 - I am nearly finished packing for my camping trip. Come rain or thunder or hurricane, I am finally going on my trip. If anyone needs me in the next week or so, I shan't be there :)

August 5, 2012 - Happy BC Day (or your own provincial equivalent)! I am going to lay back and enjoy a well deserved long weekend. 

August 4, 2012 - Strange start to my weekend - someone drove up beside me in an empty parking lot where I had left my truck for about an hour, slammed his door into my back bumper, and then left again. Didn't recognize him, so he must just be mad at the world and likes hitting things. No damage caused to my bumper though.

July 14, 2012 - Why is it that whenever I am planning a camping trip we get torrential rainstorms? Last year the weather was clear all week and then as I drove up to the island it poured all day. This year I am preparing a trip, and it rains so hard that I had to cancel! (Hopefully to be rescheduled for later this summer)

July 9, 2012 - A note to those who wish to contact me by telephone - I do not answer calls from people who will not identify themselves. Increasingly people are blocking their numbers or using unregistered numbers to hide their identities. Unfortunately due to the startling number of less-than-honest individuals doing this, I can no longer answer to any of them.

July 1, 2012 - HAPPY CANADA DAY!!

June 26, 2012 - I normally do not advertise for commercial websites on my pages, but as an avid genealogist I couldn't resist passing on the message that the website will be offering free Canadian records over the long weekend. Good opportunity to get records without paying their usual high costs.

June 17, 2012 -  Happy Father's Day to all the great dad's!
