This should have been around a long time ago. Fill 35 balloons at one time, give it a flick and all 35 water balloons are tied! How does this happen? Whoa, magic.

The OPP learned an important lesson in 1995 during the long native standoff at Ipperwash.

“We still had the mentality then that we are the OPP,” Sgt. Mark Hill of Provincial Liaison headquarters in Orillia told Norfolk’s Police Services Board Wednesday. “You do as you are told or else. We got beat up over Ipperwash. We didn’t have good relations with the people of the community. That really was the issue here.”

In his presentation, Hill – a native of Six Nations – says liaison officers are effective because both sides in a standoff or confrontation seem to trust them. Key to this effectiveness is keeping lines of communication open and ensuring erroneous information doesn’t inflame emotions.

The Ontario Provincial Police can summon overwhelming force when it has to.

It's a water, lime juice, and lots of rum kinda day.
#sometimesINeedBooze Feeling heartbroken.

My 92 year old Grandma is just about to open her cottage, the lot owner just removed the 10 cedar trees at the front that blocked traffic noise and provided privacy, and that she planted almost 70 years ago. She's not going to be around much longer. This asshole (sorry I don't usually swear online) is the 4th generation of land owners. She's faithfully maintained this lot all this time. Two years ago he cut her lot in half, and raised the lot lease, she owns/built the cottage on the lot, and built a tiny house in that space that he rents to a buddy. I think he has some idea that if he tears her place down she'll rent a brand new built thing from her, but some elderly people do not like change and this stuff is breaking her heart. I hate that this stress is going to take some time off the very short rest of her life that I will have with her. My daughter and I just went down to clean, so it will be ready for her on Friday when she plans to come up, and the tree people have already removed the cedars. She would not even have been prepared for this shock if we hadn't found out first. Could you just imagine her arriving on Friday to this?! The guy doesn't even have the courtesy to let her know. Also I cannot help but equate this to planting vegetables, and then having the landlord come to claim your crop. This is on Native American Reservation, so there is nothing that can be done about it. You can't even get angry for fear of being ordered out. The funny thing is that this kids grandmother fined her years ago for two trees that the hydro company removed because they weren't quite in the way of the hydro lines and the First Nations People have an attachment to trees. Those were weedy cottonwoods rooting in the tile bed. The cedars were homes and food to the birds that my grandma love to watch and listen to. I'm so heartbroken also, I grew up there. I spent every summer of my life there, and I know how upset my grandma is feeling about this whole situation. I wish this had happened after her death.

End of drunken rant.... I'll go cry some more.

Starting April 20 NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will be in and around the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument (MTMNM) and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).

You can watch live streaming on their website, of their Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) dives, and discover things right along with them. We often put this up on our TV running in the background of our other activities.

For info on the expedition: http://oceanexplorer.noaa.gov/okeanos/explorations/ex1605/background/plan/welcome.html

Kingfisher!!
I am so excited that I saw a rare kingfisher today. They used to be common in southwestern Ontario, but not in my lifetime. I spotted one 5 years ago, and a few times after. I was taking photos of a juvenile bald eagle today, when I turn around and spotted this guy. I mostly have it in silhouette because the sun was going down, but you can bet I'll be looking for it again.

Aside from the fast that this "17 year old" may in fact be a 29 year old ...

I read this and wondered, when we started giving scholarships to publicly funded high schools to athletes, or anyone. I hope in this case it is a private sponsorship that is being called, "scholarship" here.

A South Sudanese immigrant and prominent high school basketball player in Canada has been arrested after the revelation that his age may be closer to 29 and not 17, officials say.

Benzene leak in Chemical Valley, Sarnia, Ontario

Alarms and roads closed. This does not affect me but it's in my county.

I haven't heard anything else, so I'm guessing it was minor. We sometimes hear months later that the Ministry of the Environment has fined one of the companies in Chemical Valley.

Okeanos Marianas Trench dive happening

The ROVs are just on there way down right now (5:30 EST) and should reach bottom in about 2 hours. So you can watch the bubbles go by the blue water now, or tune in at around 7:30 EST. (That's my time zone.)

Today they are diving to 4983 meters in “Sirena Canyon” Marianas Trench, and up the slope.

They dove until after midnight (EST) last night. so you have lots of time to tune in if you are interesting in exploring along with them.

Geeky Wedding Cake
I had no idea Projection cakes were a thing, but it seems they have been around for a few years now. I'd love to see something like this at a wedding, or any cake occasion. Tres Cool!

Juvenile Bald Eagle
It was preening and a feather came out and drifted down to my husband. Eagles are making a come back here in Southwestern Ontario so it is still a big deal around here. It was neat how it watched the feather float away.
