    May 18, 2023. This is my mother and Bernie celebrating her 87th birthday at the home in the city. She’s not mobile and requires a lot of assistance but Bernie and his daughter Debbie are there every day and the staff are also really good to her. It’s so nice…

    Office Tree


    May 17, 2023. This is an apple tree in bloom just outside my office in the city. It was a work-in-office day today (plus two hours in a traffic jam right after) but I got quite a bit done – project closing report, online course, more corporate paperwork. Pretty tired…

    Morning Surprise


    May 16, 2023. This flower appeared in the tree in our front yard. We were not expecting a flower; the tree is just this scraggly bush we’ve been allowing to grow because it’s too much work to remove it – and then, suddenly, this! It appears our bush is actually…

    Inside the Feature: Why Real-Time Backups Are a Big Deal


    Let’s be honest, new and shiny features get most of the attention around here. It makes sense: New stuff is exciting! But has plenty of baked-in features that are worth talking about too. 

    Losing your work is one of the most frustrating things you can experience as a website …

    Break Time


    May 7, 2023. A break station in the cycle for CHEO event in Ottawa. I signed up for the 70 k. ride, forgot my helmet, went and bought one, started two hours late, and rode 25 km. With all of that, still a nice day: the ride, along with a…

    ?The Eras Tour?


    A couple of months ago, I attended the first night of the Taylor Swift Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona. The city commemorated this historical moment by renaming their town “SWIFT CITY.” The name remained in place Friday March 17th and Saturday March 18th. 

    I traveled from Salt Lake City, UT, …

    Wet One


    May 2, 2023. This is a little creek where it crosses the road about a kilometer south of Casselman. I got out for a short 26 km ride today on the gravel bike, It would be unremarkable except for the rainstorm part way through, a hard rain, cold and wet.…

    Hungarian Paste


    May 1, 2023. These are my new favourite flavours, one a paprika paste, and the other a pepper-tomato paste (I think), both from Hungary. I use them with my salmon-pasta soup, and it’s out0-of-this-world delicious. Now that my projects have concluded, I can soend my NRC time on more ordinary…

    My Skin


    April 29, 2023. This is the skin on my back, photographed fairly close up. I’m still struggling a lot with itchy skin; the itch sort of migrates, but right now it’s on my back. As promised yesterday, today was a work day; I attended to some coding issues on gRSShopper…

    The Ridge


    April 28, 2023. It was a beautiful day today, sunny and warmish, with a moderate east wind, so I decided to cycle today and work over the weekend. I did a loop out to Riceville along the Ridge Road and then back to Casselman through St. Isadore. This is the…
  15. Downes



    April 27, 2023. Just another dreary spring day commute. I spent the morning preparing all my slides for my presentation (I didn’t even have time to join the strike over lunch) and then the presentation was postponed for a week. These things happen.
  16. Downes



    April 26, 2023. Lunch at the Thai Express by the Gloucester Costco near work. The scene made me think of those 1950s diner photos. Things haven’t changed, except now the restaurants are brightly lit and more varied, and the food costs ten times as much. In the office today; I…

    Bridge Out


    April 25, 2023. This is the Touchette Bridge, a key crossing on my usual bike ride to St. Albert. As can be seen, I won’t be using it for a while. Today was another day focused on my newsletter and catching up with paperwork.

    April 24, 2023. Charlemagne watching me as I go down the stairs. There’s a spot in the front hall where I can interact with the cats at eye level. This is now the ‘petting zone’. The shadow is created by cardboard barriers we installed to prevent them from falling into…
