Massage in Calgary – Oracle

I’ve been to see Trevor at Oracle Massage Therapy a couple of times.  I had thrown my back/hip out two or three months ago and he did an amazing job of helping to relieve the pain.  Trevor is not rote or mechanical but seems to be able to address what the problem is and help.  I went a couple of days ago – birthday treat – and am absolutely thrilled with the increased mobility in my back and hip.

Check out the website: Oracle Massage  Give him a call, make an appointment!

There is lots of love in the world

I was waiting for someone at the airport today.  If you are ever in any kind of doubt that there is a lack of love in the world then you should sit (or stand) at the arrivals gate at the airport for a while.  Watch people greet.  It was like a piece of heaven.  Small children yelling ‘Daddy’ and running for the hug.  Brothers greeting brothers and not letting go.  Got me all weepy.

Calgary Stampede 2011

We just finished working at the Stampede in Calgary.  I’ve worked this show selling products in the BMO Center for several years now.  It is a great show.  The staff are wonderful given the impossible task of trying to please all the various vendors and the public.  One of the things that is so impressive at this fair compared to many I have attended in the US and Canada is – it is the cleanest fair that I have seen.  Inside and out.  Most fairs and shows have the cleaning crew come in after hours but the Calgary Stampede has, I don’t know how many people, constantly sweeping throughout the show so that the floors inside and walkways outside are always clean. 

I did have one small beef – over the years the BMO Center has always been well air conditioned but this year I’m not sure if there were problems mechanically or financially but there were a couple of days only that it was cool enough inside for the public and vendors to be comfortable.  Most of the time, even when it was not crowded it was extremely warm.  We tried in vain to find out what the problem was but none of the staff we spoke to seemed to know who was responsible for this.  Hopefully, next year for the 100th anniversary this will be fixed. 

If you can make it to this show during the week you will always have shorter lines and better service.  Weekends are very crowded.

See you next year!

Peach City Cruise – Penticton, British Columbia

Was in Penticton, BC last weekend and was able to enjoy the sun and sand and also get some great shots of the cars.  Penticton has a lot going on every year on that weekend.  There is an ‘Elvis’ show and the antique car show as well as another bandshell with other bands and entertainment.  Saturday also has a market downtown – something for everyone.  Below you will see some of my pictures.  I have quite a few that I liked so I put some here also: Martin Glyn Jones Photography
