A new ultrasound clinic in Camrose is being created. It will be inside the Radiology area of the Smith Clinic. Called “Veritas Imaging”, where veritas means “Truth”. The website veritasimaging.ca is shaping up.
Apparently, one of my hobbies is “buying things on Kijiji”, and sometimes some pretty strange things. Here’s my latest purchase: A truckload of old Fir timbers.
March 17, 2012 update. Work on assembly of some of these timbers, is begun. The pictures will be posted on this page.
October 6, 2011 update: About 20% of the timbers have been cleaned-up so far, using handheld power-planar and handheld belt-sander. (I hired a guy, and luckily so far, he is enjoying the work.)
Pictures of the equipment in my workshop. It’s rather messy at the moment, with several projects underway. You’ll see pictures of CNC mill, lathe, drill press, planer, grinder, workbenches, jointer, table saw, band saw, wood lathe, mitre saw, spindle sander, belt sander, etc.
Why do I post pictures like this, my favorite brand of scotch? Glenrothes. I just had my camera out, taking pictures of other things, and I thought, the next time my mother asks what I’d like for my birthday, I can show her this. ( and hopefully avoid a repeat of the time she went to a liquor store and asked for Glen-something-er-other.) [Read more…]
Here’s the farmland I own near Camrose, and because its near to the airport, I often photograph it as I fly by. This blog post became a place for me to give these pictures a home, showing how things change during the seasons.
Spring 2011. (April 17, 2011) Very wet as the snow is melting.
June 16, 2013 update. A new post showing the arrival of my landscaping tractor.
March 29, 2013 update. On a walk today on the island, I took pictures of the amazing machines that my neighbors have, which, if I can arrange to borrow or rent them, could help clear brush and landscape my properties.
Alex has this big Kubota front-end loader.
I was away in Australia on holidays, my first holiday in 3 years.
Started in Sydney, then a week of sailing in the Whitsunday islands, then some scuba in Cairns, and finishing in Melbourne. [Read more…]
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Here is a video and pictures of my first landing onto the private grass airstrip on Hudson Island.
Imagine yourself in my shoes… doing a first time landing on a place like this.
Here’s my office at the hospital. There are 3 PCs with 7 big monitors, plus a good sound system, and a great coffee maker, all of which help me stay happy at work.
I’m a radiologist. [Read more…]
