An Outage Sunday

We have been without power for more than 24 hours due to a major (for us) storm. We have had a long drought, so when the winds and a little rain hit a lot of big trees got blown over onto power lines.

Traffic was a mess yesterday. One lady was killed when a tree fell on her at a spot where Debbie and I walk quite often. She and her daughter were trying to warn motorists of another tree when this one fell on her. The daughter was able to jump out of the way.

We're spending our day out looking for places to grab a charge. I carry a six outlet adapter that came in handy at the restaurant where we had breakfast.

This thing that hit us is nothing compared to the storms that many of my G+ friends experience on a regular basis. It's frightening how much havoc it has caused. We really need to get our act together around here.

Sim Fix

Here is the sim card for my phone that I use when I venture into the US. The provider sends you a sim that is templated so that it can fit into many different phones. My Note 3 happens to take the second-smallest size, and I trade the normal sim card (that is made to fit this phone) for the roaming sim.

My problem came from trying to retrieve it out of the little pouch they give you to store it in. The inner part broke out of the adapter piece that I need to use to make it fit into my phone and I had a heck of a time making it fit.

The fix when I got home last night was to lay the sim flat on some paper and apply a little Krazy Glue to the seam to stitch it together. After letting it sit over night it is very solid and slides into the phone very easily. The trick was to make sure I didn't make any blobs that increased the thickness of the sim.

Good Morning Googlers

We are helping our daughter Sean move from Surrey to Calgary. Overnighted in Trail and we found this great little spot for breakfast in Salmo, BC called The Dragonfly Cafe.

Here's Sean and our grandson Aidan just waiting for their breakfast.

The View From Up Here

Shot from our hike to St. Mark's summit last Sunday. Lots of root and rocks along the way, but in the end well worth the effort.

Blue Heron taking flight. You have to be very, very quiet when trying to get close to a blue heron.

How can I help?
Introduction
         
         
         
I love to interact with people online and I'm looking for others who like to engage in positive, meaningful discussions about whatever topic they are posting about, or I am posting about. Many people have me in their circles. Unfortunately G+ only allows me to follow a limited number of people. If you choose to follow me I may not follow you back right away, or at all. I am more likely to follow someone that I have been engaged with in a positive manner.

Every two weeks I release an Engagers Showcase Shared Circle. I often add new engaging people to my circles when I am building these shared circles.

I never add people with no profile pic, and almost never add people with no description of themselves in their 'About' page.

About Me

I'm a father, a grandfather, a teacher, and an entrepreneur. I love music, sports, and I am intrigued by really interesting photography and art. This is my personal page. 

One of my passions is helping people live the best lives they possibly can in their senior years.

I love meeting people who can help me:
  1. Enjoy and learn more about music and art (photography included).
  2. Learn More about Google+ and other social media.
  3. Learn more about business.
  4. Further a cause that is important to me, or to them in lots of cases.
  5. Help me be a better writer.
  6. Be more self-aware so I can be a better person.
  7. Help me make lives better.
