NRC Wreath

Image
December 5, 2019. The 'NRC' logo is there to prevent people from trying to walk through the plate glass in our lobby. The view is of the back of the wreath hung over them. The good news ended there, as I came back to find out that internet on the 'black' network is out. That said, I can work from home until it's back up again. https://flic.kr/p/2hVQgvq

Senators Mug

Image
December 4, 2019. I spent the day working on my Ethics paper, trying to create a nice video of it. I say 'trying' because I learned the hard way that OBS will only support a certain number of image slides. This is in the evening, just before bed. It's the latest of my Senators Mugs, bought at the airport, to replace yet another lost Senators mug. https://flic.kr/p/2hVLzaY

Sitting Pretty

December 3, 2019. Back from Brazil, taking a rest day before working again. This is Andrea's chair, and sitting pretty on Andrea's chair is Lexi, who knows where to find the softest chair in the house. https://flic.kr/p/2hVQ1PM

Snow

December 2, 2019. This is what greeted us when we landed in Toronto. After a layover, I got into my 10:10 flight to Ottawa. After a three hour delay we managed to take off. Back home now. Cats are very happy. https://flic.kr/p/2hU5ymV

Sao Paulo

Image
December 1, 2019. Arrived in Sao Paulo early in the morning, had breakfast, stayed at the 'Fast Sleep' in the airport, sleeping most of the day, then caught my flight to Toronto in the evening. I had thought about taking my 13 hour layover and visiting the city, but decided to play it safe. This the the view from a short walk I took outside the airport. https://flic.kr/p/2hU7Q1Q

livia Nery

November 30, 2019. The day after the conference livia Nery celebrated two things - the successful completion of the conference she organized, and her birthday. This is at the celebratory lunch. Before lunch I went for a walk around the hotel in 40 degree weather taking pictures, and after I was taken for a quick tour of the city centre, which I really appreciated. I was in bed by 5 p.m. in preparation for my 2:00 a.m. departure. https://flic.kr/p/2hU8JNp
