Canadian Tire

ovember 28, 215. Spent the morning moving bixes in the living room to open out a bit more space, and the afternoon running errants, including a visit to Canadian Tire here in Casselman to schedule an emissions test and safety on the one day I have available to do these things. It's interetsing to note that they don't do emissions tests in New Brunswick. I wonder *cough* why. From Flickr

Friday, November 27, 2015


November 27, 2015. Looking outside the door of the Cooperators insurance company in Casselman at the tracks. One more task completed (and a coupe of new ones generated - getting stuff done is like playing whack-a-mole). This is right where the tracks cross Rue Principale. Cold, windy, rainy day, probably the last day before the snow. From Flickr

Paris, France

November 17, 2015. Arrived in Paris. The city was still under siege from the attacks of the 13th. Monuments, including the Arc de Triomphe, pictured. I deliberately stayed away from the targeted areas and toured the area around the Louvre and the Chapms-Élysées. From Flickr


November 26, 2015. This is what's left of the sundial erected in honour of Arthur E. Covington outside building M-55 at the NRC. As you can see, the sundial itself is completely missing, apparently ripped out of its moorings. I know I've seen this before, so it only happened in the last year or two. Covington was honoured for his pioneering reserach and lifetime dedication to the study of radio emissions from the Sun. His memorial deserved a better fate. From Flickr

Vernon, Ontario

November 25, 2015. This is the scene outside my car window from the parking lot where I took part in a conference call. This was in between getting my health card applied for and my driver's license applied for. Still to do: getting the car registration changed over (a four step process). Sigh. From Flickr

Night Light

November 24, 2015. Long day. Exhausted. No time to recover after a lot of travel. This is the night light beside my bed - the last thing I thought of today was that I needed to take my photo of the day. Worry about uploading them later; just get the shot in. From Flickr

Oak Leaves

November 23, 2015. Back at the NRC campus in Ottawa, wandering between my office in M-50 and the cafeteria in M-55. These oak leaves caught my eye, as they always do. From Flickr
