from the "he ain't heavy" dept.

Remember this guy? Looking at the photo above, I sometimes wonder if he ever really did exist. He did of course. And he's still here, just buried under the ravages of time, beer and careless eating.

Well, no more. He's decided to finally escape the shackles. He knows it won't be easy. Nor will it be fast. But you have to start somewhere.

from the "warmer climes" dept.

I'm back in Vancouver, but just for the weekend. Good timing. In Edmonton it's -30C with windchills hitting -40C and beyond. Cloudy and +1C in Vancouver. Aaah.

I'm here to pick up my Olympic hockey tickets, get my hair cut and retrieve some stuff from my storage unit. I head back to the Arctic on Sunday.

Edmonton moonset

Edmonton moonset
Originally uploaded by borderfilms (Doug).

I've posted some pictures of my Edmonton condo and the view. This photo was taken on the morning of Dec 1... it shows a quite full moon setting. Unfortunately the yellowness of the big ol' orb wasn't captured. Point-N-Shoots... what can you do?

It's a bit slow at the beginning... but stay with it. This is one of the best covers of Bohemian Rhapsody ever:
