Grace served us Guiness

Yesterday - Sunday - was another day in paradise. We went out to visit a friend of Yvonne's in Millarsville for lunch. Grace served us Pumpkin soup, her home made bread and Guinness. It was about a 45 minute drive southwest through the foothills with the ever present Rockies in view. Before lunch we went for a walk through the pasture, picking through the dung and met her horse of about 18 years and got stared down by her assorted cows. (The neighbours bull sometimes jumps the fence and has his way with the cows - or so Grace tells me.)

Triy as we might we were unable to get lost - lunch drew us back as if a magnet.

The simple fare was fantastic. Grace bakes bread for Community Natural Foods in Calgary. She served us a hard rye and a wheat along with Gouda and some smoked cheese.

You can see her here preparing to serve the soup.

Uwe and your siding

uwe zundel
A friend of mine Uwe Zundel, moved to Calgary fairly recently bringing with him a product that is new to the area called liquid vinyl siding. I've been out of that part of the world for some time (Home renovations, etc) so wasn't aware of the product but if you own a house and have siding, then you may want to find out more. You can find him at Chinook Home Improvement Center (CHIC) - Check out the website: Calgary Liquid Vinyl Siding

Carol goes to Africa

carol petersen
Carol has been to Africa something like forty times.  I think she loves that continent.  If you are going to go on tour somewhere go with someone who is passionate about what they do.  That's Carol.  I met her at the Calgary Home Show - she has a store just outside of Calgary - at Bragg Creek.  It is called Simply Safari.  Carol had a video of her travels over the years in Africa and some in India.  All quite beautiful.  If you are even thinking of going to either of these countries to visit, then call her first.  I believe Carol is from Calgary but more recently moved to Bowen Island in BC - I think she likes the warmer weather.  If nothing else, visit her website Nature Encounters

Thanks for letting me take your picture Carol.
