BC set to allow industry into protected parks?

Um, wth are they thinking?

Letting industry dictate how provincial parklands are used?

Hey, +David duChemin and +Karin Nelson, what say you?
"The passage of Bill 4, known as the Park Amendment Act, will make way for industrial incursions into provincial parklands including energy extraction, construction of pipelines and industry-led research."
"The government has sent a clear signal that it is open to having pipelines cut through our globally renowned protected areas," said Al Martin of the B.C. Wildlife Federation. "The Act will now allow industrial expansion in some of B.C.'s most beloved parks, placing them at risk."

Teabeard The Pirate

As you may know if you've read previous posts, Nelson lost an eye when he was young.

Recently +Danielle Cressman thought that he might look good with an eye patch.

He didn't like it much.

Well, Nelson likes his tea. On the dresser in the hall. In the morning. With milk. And sweetener.

When it's made properly he laps it up so enthusiastically that it splashes all over the place, and ends up on his chin, too. Hence, Teabeard.

Fascinating read for those of us who actually try to follow the (twisted) rules of English.

The Dread Pirate Teabeard and his Bootie

Lately, Nelson has taken to laying on +Danielle Cressman while she's napping.

Yesterday he nuzzled right up, hugged her, and kneaded, and loved her.

She looked at me and commented that he's got his Bootie (which is her family nickname).

Yesterday was particularly rough, as her brain would not shutdown Friday night. It's tax season, so she has a pile of tax returns to do for her clients. Plus she had an appointment on Saturday morning (which she generally doesn't do) for a new client. All of that just kept spinning around, until at 4:30am she gave up, got up, and started working.

After her appointment, she came home and worked more. Finally, around 1pm, she crashed. Mainly because Winston, Daisy, and Nelson ganged up and kitty-vibed her until she lay down and rested.

These pics were taken about two hours later, when Nelson decided it was time for her to wake up, and started nuzzling and kneading.

(I'm kind of hoping G+ will AutoAwesome these pics)

Well, I think you are gorgeous as is :-)  Feel it, work it, and then pass it on to your daughter!!  You are both so lovely, and yet do not realize it.  And yes, laughing is good (along with the telltale signs).

Farscape turns 15

It never did huge numbers, and never garnered the critical acclaim of fellow space opera BSG — but history needs to hold a space for Crichton and his crew of alien outlaws.

That Photo/Video/Audio Guy
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.
