St. Joseph Street Creek


May 27, 2017. Nice 50 km ride today and spotted this great scene just south of Embrun on St. Joseph Street. Good ride today, felt good the whole way (no wind and nice temperatures help).

Geese


May 26, 2017. These geese were feasting on the NRC lawn as I left the office. People say geese are a nuisance, but these geese were eating dandelion seeds, whch sounds like a public service to me.

Lilacs


May 22, 2017. We had to get a new lawn mower today because the old one has died and you can't live out here with a bad lawn. We'd be pariahs! That was about all I did this holiday Monday. Lilacs are at the side of our driveway.

My Twitter Advertsers

My list isn't as long as Audrey Watters's, weighing in at only 23 pages (to her 33). Note that all of these companies are wasting their money, as I block all Twitter advertisements.

Twitter says: "Tailored audiences are often built from email lists or browsing behaviors. They help advertisers reach prospective customers or people who have already expressed interest in their business. Learn more

You are currently part of 2689 audiences from 1338 advertisers.

You can opt out of interest-based advertising in your personalization and data settings. This will change the ads you see on Twitter, however it won't remove you from advertisers' audiences."

Twitter is on the bubble. I don't expect I'll be using the service by the end of the year.

Mexico City


May 17, 2017. A day off today, but I ended up having to hustle ths afternoon to cancel credit cards and such after involuntarily donating my wallet to a needy person in Mexico City's old city.

Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico


May 16, 2017. Centerpiece monument from UNAM, where I gave my talk today. After my talk: lunch, then sleep.

Monday, May 15, 2017

Mexico City


May 15, 2017. Walked about 10 km taking photos, went nowhere in particulr, which is always the best place.

Watching You


May 14, 2017. Flew to Mexico today. This is a view from the lounge at the airport in Montreal.

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Robin


May 13, 2017. Spent the day working (it ws cold and rainy anyway) and only had time to take this picture of a robin. Accomplishments: - final draft of 'Open Learning, Open Networks' submitted.

Friday, May 12, 2017

Des Pins


May 12, 2017. This is the LaRose Forest at the end of Rue Des Pins near Limoges. The road is being extended, nibbling at the edge of the forest. It needs to be protected from this sort of encroachment, or it will disappear. P.S. mosquitos out in full force.

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Lights


May 11, 2017. Yeah, yeah, I'll take them down. Next weekend. After all 15 months is long enough.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Tulips


May 10, 2017. This is on the front lawn. They didn't grow last year, but surprised us by making an appearance this year. Another coding day, frustrated by a drop-down select list that wouldn't work. It works now, though.

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Paint Shop


May 9, 2017. A few days ago I bought a couple of Muskoka chairs from Costco. Today I went to the paint store for some stain for them; this is a scene from inside the store. Accomplishments: - slides and presentation for an internal committee describing the CSPS project

Monday, May 8, 2017

Crabapple Leaves


May 8, 2017. Spent the day coding - converting my content editor to ajax so I can dynamically edit table structures. So I can maage different types of data. Which will help me build my MOOC aggregator. Made good progress. Cold and rainy (though not so much in our Casselman microclimate).

Sunday, May 7, 2017

Over the Trestle


May 7, 2017. This is the 4702 rumbling over the trestle pulling large load of freight. Another cold wet day, so I worked today, doing more coding.

My Posts are Authored by a Cat


May 6, 2017. They can't be authored by me, because as you can see this cat is always in front of the keyboard. Today was a work day, since it was too cold and rainy to do anything else. More coding.

Saturday, May 6, 2017

Rain


May 5, 2017. The story around these parts today is rain (and flooding). We're far away from the water at home, even though we can (sort of) see the river outside the kitchen window. Spent the day coding (yay!) to whip gRSShopper into shape for wide varieties of data types.

Friday, May 5, 2017

Hyacinth


May 4, 2017. Andrea planted this pink flower in 2015 but it didn't come up until this year (the same is true of our other bulbs - go figure). Good day today, got stuff done. Acomplishments: - final version of CTE (annual evaluation) submitted - draft of article for DE in China completed

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Periwinkle


May 3, 2017. We have a bountiful crop of periwinkle in the backyard garden next to the house Andrea doesn't like them and says they're invasive, but they look nice to me. Accomplishments: - first draft of Contact North paper.

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Polly


May 2, 2017. This is Polly, who in her old age has decided that she is afraid of me. Not so afraid I can't take a photo, but she doesn't like my habit of playing string with Lexi. She's 14 now, and it's all too much for her. Got half a paper revised this morning, but with no internet in the office worked from home in the afternoon, so people could have a newsletter.

Bobblehead


May 1, 2017. I took care of the last of the Moncton bills today, which complete and finally closes the chapter on that city. Otherwise, a quite day. This is the bobblehead (Steve Yzerman) and flag in my office window.
