I ventured out this morning to run an errand and took a slight detour to the hill overlooking Bowmont Park to snap a few photos of the flooding. The water  immediately at the bottom of the hill conceals a gravel pit and pathways.

My son and I were out a few days ago and encountered a fox on the side of the road. It didn't seem too concerned about us being there. I suspect it had a potential meal in the ditch - possibly a rabbit. We were able to take a few pictures before carrying on.

This post reminds me of the Mexican Exploding Hammer videos (like this one Exploding Hispanic Hammers!). I want some sort of community gathering like this!
I don't know why these people are doing this, but what the hell, after watching this video I want to do it too. Or maybe I shouldn't try, since you can probably die doing it.

This looks like an interesting movie. I'll probably have to watch it since I'm a bit of a sucker for this type of documentary.
Turnstyle's Noah Nelson interviews the brilliant minds behind Indie Game: The Movie, whose trailer is embedded above. Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky left behind a comfortable career doing corporate video gigs and other commercial work in order to pursue an unexpected passion project: a documentary about people who set aside stable jobs of their own to pursue the creation of video games without corporate backing.

Shaw announced today that they are beginning limited trials of their broadband wireless network and that they have plans to roll this out in the spring of 2012. I was disappointed when they announced the cancellation of their mobile plans back in September because I had hopes they would have a decent offering for their existing customers.

It could be that their current plans for broadband wireless may actually be better. Depending on the coverage and how Shaw rolls this out, I could see this taking a toll on cell providers like Wind and Mobilicity.

+Ryan Perry That's a bit of a shame but it may end up being cheaper than battling it out with the existing providers for a year and then giving up. The pure data focus seems to be a more sensible approach.

Took advantage of the winter closure of Highway 40 through Kananaskis to ride up to Highwood Pass. Apparently this is Canada's highest paved pass. There a lot of other people riding it as well. On the way back down we spotted a couple grizzlies beside the road. They pretty much ignored us and were focused on turning over clumps of soil to eat roots of the new grass.

Radiolab did a piece about Bob Milne - a guy with the ability to run 4 separate pieces of music in his head simultaneously at the correct tempo. The way he relates to music is amazing.

While I was waiting at a red light, I glanced in my mirror at the people behind me and that got me wondering... do couples that pick together stick together? It has to reduce their chances of sticking with someone new.

It's an accepted fact that couples that share a hobby are happier.
