March 22, 2017. I'm trying to convince Alex that the new fish will be just as good as the old, but he's just not buying it. Nice quiet day, Jays win, and I got some coding done and some bills aid.

Pine Cones

March 21, 2017. It's still winter so I thought I'd photograph some pine cones. Quiet day - worked on a report, one meeting, and on AWS stuff. And listened to the ball game this afternoon.

The Office

March 20, 2017. Another photo of the office building where I work, known more formally as building M-50. I'm on the third floor, right in the middle. I spent the day in that office yesterday working on AWS, Vagrant and Docker stuff.

Railway Bridge

March 19, 217. Another bright clear and cold day. Winter will be over soon, but not yet. This is the railway bridge over the Nation RFiver, seen from the town side in Casselman.

Through the Front Door

March 18, 2017. This is looking through the wondow above the front door toward the setting sun. Definitely a day off today; watched a ball game online, puttered with some code, watched some videos.

Clear Blue Sky

March 17, 2017. We had a brilliant blue sky today, a frosty cold day full of light. Accomplishments: - finished evaluating a funding proposal en fran├žais.


March 14, 2017. At the airport, on the way to Moncton, to close the sale of the house. Finally!

In the Sink

March 16, 2017. Lexi in the sink, one of her fvourite places. Jet lagged today. I know it's only a one-hour difference, but it was high-stress, and there was a time change to boot.

Events Centre

March 15, 2017. This is Moncton's new events centre, still under construction. It was the big news the last few years in the city. Now the house is sold nd we're gone and we don't get to enjoy it. No regrets.

March 13, 2017. We visited the notary not once but twice today, both times going through this building lobby that did not instill a feeling of confidence.

Day of Rest

March 13, 2017. Spent the day watching the Blue Jays lose (it's only spring training, right?) and puttering with responsive website design.

Thousand Islands Bridge

March 11, 2017. On the way back home. Cold, windy, and the Blue Jays were getting thumped.

The Hockey Game

March 10, 2017. The Syracuse Crunch played host to the Springfield Thunderbirds and came out (quite deservedly) at the short end of a 3-2 score. Good game.


March 9, 217. Conference host Alexandra Pickett is holding this purring and meowing cat-robot, everyone's favourite prop from the talk by Robbie Melton. Accomplishments: - posted Audio and slides for Open Learning, Open Networks


March 8, 2017. Syracuse downtown. This is the first day of the conference, and this picture reminded me of the concept of 'open' in its truest sense - musical instruments waiting to be played by anyone, any time.

Sackett's Harbour

March 7, 2017. Drove from Casselman to Syracuse, stopping part way to enjoy this view at the War of 1812 historical site of Sackett's Harbour. It seemed to me to be a really nice place and I wish I could have lingered, but it was also cold and windy.

Heavy Equipment Operator Training

March 6, 2017. A day off today as I prepared to travel. Went in to Costco to stock up, and spent some time watching the heavy equipment operator training.

Warped Light

Matrch 5, 2017. This is the light in my office. It was an all-day-in kind of day, working on gRSShopper.

The Torrent

February 4, 2017. This is the view outside the conference venue in Richcraft Hall at Carleton University where I attended the #Visions2042 event. I missed Friday but Saturday was well worth the time, and I got to feel like an academic for the day.

Playing with the Cat

March 3, 2017. Good day today, meeting in the morning, errands in the fternoon. In the evening I was pretty tired but still found time to play with Lexi.

Kirkland Deli

March 2, 2017. Quick stop at Costco on the way home. Set up security on AWS today today.


March 1, 2017. Late afternoon fog on a warm day as the school bus drives by in front of the hose. Spent the day working on AWS configuration, again. Each day I get a little bit better.

February 28, 2017. This is the hood in our kitchen, taken at the very end of the day. Worked mostly on reducing backed up email and downloading my course videos - bandwidth in the office is getting very poor, to the poiint of being almost unusable.

Sunset Tree

February 27, 2017. Busy day today, got a lot done. Then stopped at Costco on the way home, where I took this tree. Accomplishments: - Draft Business Plan
