Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange


This week we have Orange.  Interesting choice.  I took this sunset photo on Kootenay Lake in September of 2014.  The pictures do not do it justice.

Images Of World War 1 Sites Today


Very interesting article showing sites of WW1 battles as they look today.  The war to end all wars started just over 100 years ago.  One of my grandfathers fought for Canada in this and was gassed at some point.  I’m going to have to look into that a bit further.

Back after our beautiful drive from Calgary to Gibsons, BC through the Rocky Mountains.  What a beautiful drive.  We live in an astounding place, this country of ours.  One of our breweries, Molson’s (owned by Coors now, I think) has put together a great set of marketing tools, usually involving beer coolers and a uniquely Canadian only way to open it.  The first series involved using a Canadian passport to open randomly placed machines around the world.  Very cool idea.  The video here represents their latest interesting take.  Enjoy eh!

I found this on Tumblr.  If any of you are hockey fans, you know about Darryl Sutter, coach of the LA Kings.  He has a penchant for unintentionally funny press conferences and is well-known for his demeanour.  Check this out for a good chuckle.

Helpful Signs – An Educational Series


Today’s helpful sign is easy to relate to on a personal level.  If I had a nickel for every time I watched the wrong side of a monitor, I would be pretty broke.  Is this warning label hell?  Is it a conspiracy to help the world on its dumbing down.  Is it a government job creation program (someone has to make and apply these labels)?  Did someone by Jimmy Kimmel a label maker for Christmas?
