Maple Leaf

October 24, 2014. The maple leaf is ubiquitous around these parts, and this time of the year the ground is coaovered with them. This is just one in a billion in the area. It landed on the sidewalk outside the office; I liked the symmetry and the colouring and made it my photo for today. Five meetings today, good progress. I sometimes miss writing and coding, but I like getting stuff done.

On Guard

October 22, 2014. It's interesting that as we were in this building discussing safety and security with the Vice President of NRC, the shooting events were unfolding at government facilities in Ottawa. So we've all been a bit more security conscious today. Aside from that, it was a pretty good day, with a good demo of LPSS and the sending out of the first of the invitations to the public (true to form, the first non-NRC person into the system received an invite by accident).

Fall Day, Grey Day

October 21, 2014. It was gloomy when I left the office this afternoon, a longish day with meetings and attempted meetings. I'm feeling a lottle stressed these days; I enjoy my job but there's a lot to it, and it's pretty difficult sometimes.

October 20, 2014. These bright red plants, Celosia, are characteristic of the New Brunswick fall landscape. These were photographed in front of the Coliseum in the bright noon sun as I stopped by to pick up out Miracles basketball season tickets.

Magnetic Hill

October 19, 2014. It was a beautiful fall day, perfect for a bike ride, and so I put in 60 km cyclying up Gorge Road (pictured) and over the two mountains - Lutes Mountain (also pictured) and Steeves Mountain - on the way to Salisbury and back. Magnetic Hill is at the base of Lutes Mounatin and I passed by it on the way.

Octiber 18, 2014. Pretty tired today, too tired to notice I've accidentally set the 'Illustration' picture effect on today's lazy photo pf the front yard. But it's a pretty nice result.

October 17, 2014. Sainte-Anne-Des-Pays-Bas (Paroisse) in Fredericton. I drove to Freddie and back today for meetings at our office there (and to get some free food from the staff pot-luck). I snapped this while stuck in the permanent Regent Street traffic jam on the way home. We got weather like this in the evening, but for the rest of the day it was overcast and rainy.
