Double Note

As we're doing our morning wake up routine of bevvies and bacon in bed, WeeGee jumps down from the headboard between us. Nothing unusual there.

Until she sneezed and farted at the same time.

A delicate little "fffft" of a sneeze.

With an accompanying "furht" of a fart.

At first I wondered if I was hearing things.

And then the smell hit.

I damn near peed myself laughing, and poor WeeGee slunk off in shame.

Strange Day

Today was one of the strangest busy days I think I have ever had.

- Up early to get kid to school for her bazaar.
- Play gopher for last-minute items.
- Play Green Man in a Beltane ritual. (I caught the Mad May Queen. Hooray!)
- Run sound for a funeral service in a nearby town.
- Back home to watch an old Robin Williams HBO special.

Such a wide variety.

G'night.

H.B. Beal Spring Bazaar Success!

A great big thank you to all the vendors who took part in Beal's 1st Annual Spring Bazaar! We had a lot of competition from other events in the city, but still managed a fairly decent turnout. Thank you for taking a chance on a new event. (Please comment with your name and website so more people can learn about you)

A special thank you to TVDSB custodial staff Ken and Paul for giving up a portion of their Saturday to lend a hand and keep an eye on things.

Thank you to the Beal Student Council reps who helped organize and promote the Bazaar, put in the time Friday night for setup, and helped out through the day Saturday.

For her tireless dedication, our deepest gratitude to Mrs. Lori Armstrong for her assistance, guidance, and support with Student Council and the Bazaar.

To everyone who worked behind the scenes, before, during, and after: Your efforts did not go unnoticed. Thank you.

Finally, to everyone (including City Councillor Phil Squires, attending incognito as "just Phil") who came through the doors to check out the wares: You helped make this day a success. Whether browsing or buying, your presence made this event worthwhile, and will help support our future leaders. Thank you!

Yeah, a small provider was building out our area but their funding got dropped during the telcom crash in '01 and they got bought up by a regional carrier (thankfully).  That was part of the decision to buy this house.

Hopefully they, or that local co. will do it soon.

Thanks to +Seth Godin for this one. An interesting take on addressing the physical world. Three simple words, easy to remember, and every place in the world is identified to within a 3m x 3m area.

For example,

Yes, it requires an app to look it up, but if you don't know where you're going, you'll likely need to look it up anyway.

Welcome To Motel 6, The Police Will Be Notified

Although this article specifically mentions one location, the phrasing does indicate that this is a corporate, chain-wide policy, at least in the U.S. Not sure about the Canadian arm (if there still is one):

Stay at Motel 6, and the police will be provided your name as part of the daily list of guests that the establishment sends...without your knowledge or consent.

Yup, there is a motel 6 on the corner of exeter right by the OPP station. I just happened to see it on the way into work.  Remind me not to check in there.

If anyone is coming from outside London, and isn't sure where Beal is.

Although it has a Dundas St address, the active entrance is on King St (one way street), between Maitland and William.

Spring Has Sprung...Away

Today was interesting: rain, snow, rain, sleet, rain, snow, rain, sleet. Sometimes within a 5 minutes span.

The Weather Network wasn't kidding when they said "mixed precipitation". Should have been more like, "confused precipitation".

Ma Nature's been self-medicating again, it seems.

Introduction
Thanks for checking out my profile. Just a little background about me if you are deciding whether or not to circle me (or uncircle me, as the case may be). Grab a cup of your favourite beverage, this may take a bit. ;)

Firstly, circling me does not guarantee an automatic circling back. I simply can not keep up with the stream as it as. I tend towards quality, not quantity, as it were. If it seems interesting to me, I may follow along. Unless it gets to be too much, then I may have to pare things back. Nothing personal. I will do my best to respond to comments, however.

Although I try to keep things relatively clean, there will be times I post stronger or more explicit material. If there is a chance this may offend you, feel free to not circle me. If you do circle me and don't like what you see, just leave quietly. Nobody likes a scene. Sorry to be blunt, but you do have a choice here on G+, no one is forcing you to receive the posts from someone you chose to circle.

I spent much of my adult life working in the computer industry, first as a systems administrator, then in telephone tech support. In 2011, I burned out and went for a career reset. Don't get me wrong, I still love technology and geek out over gadgets and software, but I just can't handle resolving everyone else's computer issues anymore.

While reviewing my options I realized that one of the things I had been doing since I was a kid was taking pictures, so I decided to pursue photography. Still working on that.

Other interests include audio recording and videography. I haven't done much with those, yet. Although in May 2012 I did begin volunteering at our local Rogers TV Community Television station, where I have been learning camera operation, audio, and aim to get into video editing, too.

After an incomplete Project 52 in 2011 (partly due to burning out my camera, partly due to life), I completed a self-directed Project 52 in 2012. For 2013 I am participating in the #WeeklyPhotoProject2013 curated by +112047518791547423051 , +109674480414473952661 and  +104350419422550122115 (+117783067636860808623). I am also working on a very loose Project 365.

I also have an interest in developing a podcast, but as of March 1, 2013 when this profile is being written, I have not come up with a solid idea. The year is still young, though.

If you've read this far, thank you for your patience. This is the most I've written about myself in, well, ever. Google+ is a great community, and I am thankful to be a part of it.
