A BUSY Couple of Weeks…

A Camaro marked up as Bumblebee from the Transformers movies, and an R-5 droid at Calgary Expo 2021. The last couple of weeks have gone by in a blur. Last week was fairly busy, with interviews and meetings for work, which I tried to get caught up on before Lynn and I headed to Calgary … Continue reading A BUSY Couple of Weeks…

Shining through…

Today was definitely productive. It honestly wouldn't have been anywhere near as productive if it hadn't of been for Lynn. Fortunately she was able to get someone to cover the store today, so I could settle into the office and catch up on some work. And catch up I did. I still have a couple … Continue reading Shining through…

Progress…

Photo by Polina Zimmerman on Pexels.com Well, I managed to get my second assignment submitted for my Prose course, along with the first assignment for my Communications course. I've also managed to start on the first of three novels I'll be studying as part of Prose. Slowly but surely, I'm making forward progress. This week … Continue reading Progress…

Enjoying the challenge of the assignment….

The entrance to the town I live in. I am five days into this media tracking assignment, and it has been an eye opening experience. It has made me re-think what and how much media I consume on a daily basis, as well as my contribution to it. Even in my job running our used … Continue reading Enjoying the challenge of the assignment….

Using media in all aspects of life…

Photo by Flo Dahm on Pexels.com With back-to-back meetings yesterday, as well as having to deal with the vet due to all three of our critters being ill, I didn't have a chance to do a post. Continuing the theme of media use, I did have a realization, though. During the first of my meetings … Continue reading Using media in all aspects of life…

Getting back into things

Photo From July 10, 2021 Ranch Rodeo, Stettler, Alberta Well, today has definitely been a day. With the restrictions more or less fully off across Alberta, events are are starting to happen again, which has been nice. It's nice to actually be getting out and covering things for the paper, and I know that the … Continue reading Getting back into things

All in

Photo by Craig Adderley on Pexels.com One of my favourite shows on television of late is SEAL Team. The show follows the lives of Bravo Team, one of the teams in the elite SEAL Development Group (DEVGRU). Led by Bravo-1, a SEAL by the name of Jason Hayes, the team takes on missions around the … Continue reading All in

Crazy…

Photo by Bich Tran on Pexels.com How did we get past the middle of June already? The last few weeks have absolutely flown by. When I have weeks like I've had this week, that is not hard. This week has gone from zero to stupid in a heartbeat. Just because of how the calendar fell … Continue reading Crazy…

Book review: The Night Fire by Michael Connelly.

Michael Connelly has done it again, with his hit novel "The Night Fire." A decades old murder, with the suspect still on the street. A more contemporary case, where a homeless person living in a tent is burned alive. A murder-book hidden away for decades brought to light by the widow of the cop who … Continue reading Book review: The Night Fire by Michael Connelly.

The tail end of a busy week…

Photo by Olya Kobruseva on Pexels.com Well, it's been a week. Between work and church commitments this week, I've definitely been busy. The good news is that I got all the videos shot and the video put together today, a full day earlier than I had planned. The bad news is that one of the … Continue reading The tail end of a busy week…

I need to find time…

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com The last couple of days have continued to be busy. I have to admit, I am enjoying the fact that I've been able to maintain this pace. It feels good to actually be productive. Unfortunately, I haven't made the time to get back into my workouts again. It just seems … Continue reading I need to find time…

Changes and growth…

I finally managed to get out shooting again last night, which felt good. It was a quiet evening with little wildlife moving about; still, I managed to capture an image of this hawk having supper, which is as cool as it is disturbing. Even birds need to eat. Despite not finding much to shoot last, … Continue reading Changes and growth…

Photography road trip…

Today was busier than it felt, despite sleeping in. I made pancakes for lunch for Lynn and I, then ended up cleaning my camera and lenses, because it had been awhile since it's been done, and with the pets, their fur gets everywhere. With that task completed, Lynn, Rolo, and I -Sorry Taffy!!-loaded into the … Continue reading Photography road trip…

Media Wednesday: Author Review; Richard Castle

Nathan Fillion plays Richard Castle in the ABC Television series 'Castle". I'm a fan of crime fiction. Michael Connelly and Jeffery Deaver especially. However, I'm currently reading an actual book written by a fictional character... Yes, I know that the last statement doesn't make any sense but let me explain. The fictional character who wrote … Continue reading Media Wednesday: Author Review; Richard Castle

Falling into routine

We are falling into a routine after the stress of the last few days. I'm slowly getting back into my work projects, and Lynn is doing some online marketing for the store and her home-based-businesses. The air in the house is definitely somber compared to what it was, but the other two dogs are starting … Continue reading Falling into routine

Weathering the storm…

Tonight, I find myself in a contemplative mood. I found out today that the paper is struggling today, due to ad revenue fleeing because of the pandemic. According to the letter from the publisher, if things don't change, the paper may not survive through to the other side of this. It has me considering my … Continue reading Weathering the storm…

Movie Review: 1917 (No Spoilers)

I was invited along to check out the movie "1917" with some of the guys from church on Wednesday night. I'd seen a couple of trailers for the movie, and they didn't really grab me, but I figured I'd go along with the guys. I am glad I did. The movie is set during the … Continue reading Movie Review: 1917 (No Spoilers)

A little of this, a little of that…

Aside from going hypoglycaemic during a workout, today hasn't been a terrible day. I spent most of the day in the office split between studying and a session with M. I booked my final exam for the later part of February, so I am definitely getting into crunch time. I did get just over a … Continue reading A little of this, a little of that…

Getting more active and creating local content again…

Yesterday and today have been somewhat more active than most as of late. I was out the door early yesterday morning for a meeting, then stopped off at the store to help Lynn pull down the last of Christmas -which we still need to do at home-. The afternoon was spent writing and editing photos, … Continue reading Getting more active and creating local content again…

The old country church

Lynn and I went out into the back country a few days ago, and along our travels we found this old church. The church is called Notre Dam de Savoie, north of Halkirk. Notre Dame de Savoie Church, north of Halkirk. Kevin J Sabo photo. Being a sucker for history, I had to stop and … Continue reading The old country church

Turning a corner

Today was a busy one. Up and out by 10 this morning to have lunch with Lynn and take pictures at the Alliance Town Fair and Farmers Market. After the market it was a quick stop home to drop off a couple things, then a trip to Coronation for multiple events. First up, several members … Continue reading Turning a corner
