Calgary Traffic Web Cams

For a while I’ve had this Calgary Traffic page that brings together live web cam images from the city’s public traffic website. I didn’t really like that I couldn’t see all the cameras from the view they give, so I whipped up a page to do it for me..

Anyway, I just updated [...]

Happy 100th Birthday Grandma Smith!

Georgina Smith turns 100!

Photos from Grandma Smith's 100th Birthday Shindig!

For those in the know, my mother’s mother has just officially turned 100!

This woman is one of the most impressive and interesting people I know.

A master-knitter amongst far too many more things to enumerate, she’s traveled quite the path thus far. Everyone on the family has at least several things she’s knitted and all those who visit her know she continues to keep a sharp mind!

Suffice to say a little blog post can’t possibly do this woman justice!

Cheers to our sage cat, Mr. Jasper

SageMrJasperSmall

Jasper, our epically sage cat left us March 24th, 2010.

He sported a remarkable disposition unlike that of any other cat I’ve known. He expressed a vast range of positive emotions (with the occasional impressive act of disapproval). Jasper’s one of a kind character sets the bar for kitties everywhere and earned him an assortment of loving nick-names such as “Puppy Cat”. His grace is unrivaled and we will unquestionably miss him.

I am however delighted to have known him and thankful for the bizarre fortunes he enjoyed. This king of cats will remain comfortable and relaxed in the most treasured corners of our hearts.

Rest Peacefully Jasper.

Last Saturday was the Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer, particularly in this case, my calling.

The day consisted of a workshops, some social gatherings, a formal ring ceremony and banquet.. It was an epically full day I’m sure to remember so long as my brain is in tact.

Suffice to say, [...]
