January 25, 2014 - Happy Burns Day to all of my friends in family in Scotland, and abroad. 

January 13, 2014 - Thank you as well to all of the friends and family who sent kind birthday wishes this year.

January 13, 2014 - I get no respect - my own mother just said she thought I was twenty years older than I really am, and then waited with a camera to see if the birthday cake candles would light my beard on fire... 

January 7, 2014 - Merry Christmas to my orthodox friends and family.

January 1, 2014 - HAPPY NEW YEAR!! May you all have a happy and prosperous 2014, and may we all meet again next year in joyous celebrations!

December 29, 2013 - We can't even get a rest at Christmas - someone launched a denial-of-service attack against my mother's email account so that she wouldn't get Christmas wishes from her friends and family. Likely it was the same person (or family) that broke into my computer to cause feuds a couple of years ago, and who stole my mother's identity before that. So if anyone sent her a Christmas greeting and received no reply, that is the reason.

December 25, 2013 - MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

December 24, 2013 - The decorations are up, the gifts are bought and wrapped, and we have likely had as much snow as we will receive. Time to relax and enjoy the holidays!

December 6, 2013 - The electricity to my office is really fluctuating this afternoon, and wreaking havoc upon my equipment. And so unfortunately I won't be able to contact anyone for online meetings or get any work done for the rest of the day. My apologies to those affected.

December 4, 2013 - The rumors are true - it has actually snowed in my hometown of Victoria, BC! If it builds up I will post photos later. It is such a rare occurrence in December, and dare we hope for a genuine white Christmas? 

November 28, 2013 -  Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, followers, and colleagues. Even if you are not celebrating, it is always good to take time to remember everything we have to be thankful for.

November 22, 2013 - These door-to-door salesmen are getting pretty bad. Just had one while I was visiting my mother's house-  I guess they thought this elderly widow was home alone-  claiming to be from Telus and getting really pushy with her. They wouldn't leave when she said no repeatedly, and they even said they would keep harassing her until she agreed to switch her television service. This has convinced my to cancel all of my Telus products immediately. There is no excuse for this kind of boorish treatment of customers!
