The Zombies Ate My Brains

Rescuing what might remain of the grey matter.

Change of Perspective

In reviewing my last few posts, I’m rather appalled by the complaining tone that underscores my writing. Today, time for a change of perspective. Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? Grade school was a piece of cake. Ditto the first and second tours at community college.  (Advertising Art, aka Graphic Design for one year and a decade later, Developmental Service Worker Program for three.) The third, the […]

Changing Seasons July 2017

It’s July – summer time here in the Northern Hemisphere. Judging by what I read, or more precisely what I don’t read on WordPress, I’m no different from other bloggers who are otherwise engaged. That means I’m not posting or commenting as frequently as I usually do. But it’s raining today, so I’m going to take this opportunity to contribute to the Changing Seasons blog challenge for July. Mostly, this […]

Changing Seasons – June 2017

This is what it’s all about, folks. The floral glory that is Northern Ontario. What’s that? There’s more to the north than rocks and lakes and trees? You bet your sweet bunchberry there is! Just the other day I discovered the underwater macro feature on my camera.  Love the results for these dry land shots! As with so many landscape images, the camera cannot adequately capture the expanse, the scale […]

Road Trip to V-Town

We played tourist yesterday and drove to visit Mount Cheminis, or Mont Chaudron. It is a landscape formation of geological interest, and it sits at the Ontario/Quebec border, just east of Virginiatown. Reiner used to work at the Kerr Addison Mine in “V-town” 30-some years ago. Even though the monadnock or inselberg  dominates the landscape to the east as you leave town, Reiner was unfamiliar with the sight. Or site. […]

Don’t Put Anything Near The 2 Windows

When we were at Florence’s last week, I didn’t take pictures of the interior. Another time, perhaps. However, I did see some rustic outbuildings that caught my eye. She gave me a very short tour of the grounds. Unfortunately the black flies descended and drove her indoors. Now that means I not only would like permission to document the original dining and living rooms, I need to get the answer […]

Changing Seasons – April 2017

As the month of April unfolded and as I started to collect images for this monthly blog post, frankly, I considered giving this entry a pass. The idea, essentially as I see it, is to show how the countryside changes from month to month.  January I showed you snow, February snow, March… more snow… and at the outset, April wasn’t much different. But thirty days later, I’m happy to report, […]

Functionality on the Right of Way

The members of the Cobalt Historical Society are the keepers of the Heritage Silver Trail here in the Town of Cobalt and Coleman Township. Reiner and I joined the group last year and are now board members. The role of the CHS is to preserve and promote the mining heritage of our area. That means outside the boardroom we are busy keeping the trails clean and safe, raising funds, and […]
