Again, a person on my post. That is not my usual style. This is my son's gilrfriend and a bit of her dog Chiquita. We also had her inherited dog Bailey with us this cold day at the end of November.

16:47 News from Nowhere for April 22 »John Cairns Blog
I really don’t have a lot to say today so here are some links to the big stories happening lately: North Korea suspending nuke tests, shootings at Waffle House, the Barbara Bush funeral, and James Comey. I guess Coachella has been on as well. That’s all I’m writing about for now.
15:53 Another wise man said »Island Musings
I made the deadline, but in all honesty, for much of that build, the work was not very joyful. Many times that year, I had an old, uncomfortable feeling I couldn’t put my finger on. Then it dawned on me. I inadvertently invited the misery of time to come join me in the shop as&ellipsis;Read the full post »

To celebrate Earth Day!  Let's commit to changing our habits for the better. There has been a lot of discussion of late on how we as consumers can change our habits to improve the environmental impact.  From replacing plastic bags with paper or cloth to the straws in restaurants question.  I've decided to take every opportunity to change my habits and anything of interest I'll post to this blog.  Big in the media lately, the message is clear - Stop using plastic! T [...]

10:22 An odd flashback »Island Musings
My maternal grandparents were hard rock New England farmers. My conscious exposure to them was probably the early 50s to mid 60s. They were devout christians who believed in hard work and little else. I remember when my grandfather brought a TV to the farm house. My grandmother mandated it would only be allowed in&ellipsis;Read the full post »

I finally got to do a proper shoot using a new prosthetic yesterday, the makeup was pretty straightforward and the shoot itself was just a wandering about town sort or deal.

I played an old video of Lennie Gallant earlier in the week. Here he is a few decades later. The link is a different one than Tuesday's. For the last couple of years he had a summer stage show which was very popular. I took an Acadian friend who was visiting and we both enjoyed the show very much. Lennie's sister Karen is a visual artist who I also know and she did the paintings that are the projected background for the stage/show.

22:46 BNN Bloomberg launches April 30; spells end to Vancouver’s TSN 1410 »John Cairns Blog
So the news from Canadian media is that BNN and Bloomberg have joined forces and their combined business news channel will launch April 30. This is actually a move that was announced some time ago and gives BNN exclusive rights to Bloomberg TV programming in Canada. However I should point out Bloomberg was technically already...

12:04 Mechano for mayor »Island Musings
I just read that in a city in Japan a robot is legitimately running for mayor, promising logic and fairness for all. I probably should not say what I am thinking.
12:02 How much bandwidth »Island Musings
Over the years that I have had the DSLas my high-speed Internet I have tracked my monthly bandwidth usage-simply as a matter of curiosity. Over the years our little household has averaged around 7 gigs a month. Since changing service providers to Xplornet our monthly average over three months has been around 200 gigs.
11:53 Getting wiser »Island Musings
What if you could instantly search over 100,000 books (and growing) as a reference tool? Now you can. Try it. This morning I was looking for the source of a phrase I heard and within a heartbeat I had the answer. This has the potential of being a valuable resource.

10:58 What matters »Island Musings
Someplace I read the phrase, “Put your energy into something that matters”. That phrase resonated with me but I would reword it as, “put your energy into something that matters to you-not something you have be told should matter“.

I played a PEI singer, Rose Cousins a couple of weeks ago. Here's another Islander, also an old friend, Lennie Gallant, with a fun video, home-made film style.

12:43 Today my phone rang »Island Musings
It was my Internet service provider. They were calling, in their words, “just to see if everything was OK”. As I had a service call a month or so back they were following up to make sure all was well. All is well. My provider is Xplornet using LTE technology.
