Fishing Alberta With Paul C

Here are some new photos from Nube. Phil's children are now doing quite well catching bigger perch. Caden's fish is a jumbo perch. Caden's perch gets the awesome award for that hog. Jacob's nice northern pike also gets the awesome reward.

Awesomeness seal
Perch grow slowly and to catch the bigger ones is considered to be top fishermen or fisherwomen. One of the ways to check the perch's age is to remove the sharp gill plate and dry it out for a few days.

After that holding the cheek in front of a bright light you can count the lines which is years of growth. The same method is used to determine the age of the tree.

If the lines or rings of growth are closer together that means slow growth for that year. If the lines or rings are farther apart that means it means it was a good growth season.

The rate of growth is directly related to environmental conditions and the amount of food that the perch are eating.

It also tells the condition of the water. Algae growth that reduces oxygen in a lake can slow growth as well. The lake conditions in Northern Alberta are still considered drought condition. It takes years to recover the water table below ground after being so dry for such a long time.


If you have any questions
please feel free to contact me.

Thought He Was A Goner, But The Cat Came Back

Yesterday we told you there was a cat in this photograph, walking through the rubble. They say the average person can find it in about 20 seconds. I must be above average as it took me a few minutes. Were you able to find it? If not, here is proof he really was there. Just follow the red line to the box, left side of photo. The second photo shows the detail magnified.

The Porcelain Unicorn

British film director Sir Ridley Scott launched a global film making contest for aspiring directors. It's titled "Tell It Your Way". There were over 600 entries.

The film could be no longer than three minutes, contain only 6 lines of narrative and be a compelling story. The winner was "Porcelain Unicorn" from American director Keegan Wilcox.

It's a story of the lifetimes of two people who are totally opposite, yet, very much the same - all told in less than 3 minutes.

You'll see why it won.

One Sharp Cop

One Sharp Cop
If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility.

Q: 'Officer, did you see my client fleeing the scene?'

A: 'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'

Q: 'Officer, who provided this description?'

A: 'The officer who responded to the scene.'

Q: 'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?'

A: 'Yes, sir. With my life.'

Q: 'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?'

A: 'Yes sir, we do!'

Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room?'

A: 'Yes, sir, I do.'

Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker?'

A: 'Yes, sir.'

Q: 'Now, why is it officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?'

A: 'You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'

Baked Eggs (oeufs en cocotte)

baked
This is a perfect breakfast/brunch dish for one or many. It presents well, is extremely nutritious, filling, and can be made on demand quickly. It is very simple to make, yet is a nice change from scrambled eggs or omellets.

But then, it is a French dish after all.

The Psychiatrist And The Proctologist

The Psychiatrist & The Proctologist
Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided that, in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space and personnel. Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist and Dr. Jones was the proctologist; they put up a sign reading:

"Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors".

The town council was livid and insisted they change it. So, the docs changed it to read: "Schizoids and Hemorrhoids".

This was also not acceptable, so they again changed the sign. "Catatonics and High Colonics" - No go.

Next, they tried "Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives". Thumbs down again.

Then came "Minds and Behinds" - still no good.

Another attempt resulted in "Lost Souls and Butt Holes" - unacceptable again!

So they tried "Analysis and Anal Cysts" - not a chance.

"Nuts and Butts" - no way.

"Freaks and Cheeks" - still no good.

"Loons and Moons" - forget it.

Almost at their wit's end, the docs finally came up with: "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones - Specializing in Odds and Ends".

Everyone loved it.

* Thanks to SAP reader Bixman for this gem.

Only A Farm Kid

Only A Farm Kid
When you're from the country, your perception is a little bit different.

A farmer drove to a neighbours' farmhouse in his pickup, and knocked at the door. A boy, about 9, opened the door.

"Is your Dad or your Mom home?" said the farmer.

"No, they went to town."

"How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?"

"No, he went with Mom and Dad."

The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other, and mumbling to himself.

"I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give dad a message."

"Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter Susie pregnant".

The boy thought for a moment . . . "You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don't know how much he charges for Howard.

Where Did The White Man Go Wrong?

whiteman
Indian Chief "Two Eagles" was asked by a white U.S. Government official, "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

The Chief nodded in agreement.

The official continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied:

"When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water.

Women did all the work, Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing;

All night having sex.'

Then the chief leaned back and smiled "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."

First ‘Test-Tube’ Hamburger To Be Produced This Year

hamburger_large
The world’s first “test-tube” meat, a hamburger made from a cow’s stem cells, will be produced this fall, Dutch scientist Mark Post told a major science conference on Sunday.

Post’s aim is to invent an efficient way to produce skeletal muscle tissue in a laboratory that exactly mimics meat, and eventually replace the entire meat-animal industry.


An interesting read here.

The Don,

Look at the old Chevy I found on one of the beaches on the North Shore yesterday.  I don't know what year and model it is, but you probably do.  

Also, the other shot is a shot of an old VW "surf mobile" that I found parked in front of one of the surfing "joints" on the North Shore.  There were a number of surf boards in the back of the van.

SINC SAYS:

Trust you to find a classic car over there Jim. That beauty is a 1936 Chevrolet, albeit highly modified judging by the modern wheels which usually translates into a much newer running gear. I have to admit though, the owner left the body pretty much stock. Here's a look at what they looked like coming out of the factory in stock form.

Iowans Profess Their Love Of Bacon At Festival



Oh bacon, let Iowans count the ways they love you:

Memories of a pastoral childhood on father’s farm.

The simple pleasure of gripping a fistful of bacon strips in one hand, and an ice cold beer in the other.

The audacity of biting into a giant bacon-infused doughnut ball topped with chocolate and, yup, more bacon.
Take that, health nuts.

The Don,

All along the backside of the Ala Wai canal, they have the Ala Wai Community Gardens, where locals can rent small plots of land from the City and County of Honolulu for $40.00 per year and plant anything they want on their rented plot of land.  The $40.00 annual fee also INCLUDES water!!  Shown are a couple of Japanese ladies that we came upon who were tending to their garden.  They kindly consented to letting us take their picture.

Cheers,

Communal gardens are more rare here, but can be found. Given the rainfall amounts there, I imagine it is easier to grow your veggies than it would be here and not as much water would be necessary. Thanks for the pics.

HANK LIONHART (Vocals) and

JIM DONNETT (Guitar)

Big Hank Leonhardt
- Started his musical career in Edmonton in 1965 while still in high school. After graduation, Hank moved to Seattle, Washington to attend art college and formed a band the Clouds in Seattle. Then he returned to Edmonton and formed a band with the late Darrell Kittlitz and they toured across the country doing cabaret's and clubs. The group was called Coloured Rain. In 1974 after a year and a half on the road Hank returned to Edmonton and joined Hot Cottage he played with them til 1978 then moved to Victoria forming Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band who were signed to RCA records and recorded two albums and opened for the likes of Muddy Waters, Joe Cocker, George Thoroughgood, James Cotton, John Mayall, the Neville Brothers, Koko Taylor, Queen Ida and Paul Butterfield to name a few and the band still do a reunion tour each year. After this band folded in 1983 Hank formed the Toasters and Kingpins in Vancouver with some ex members of Powder Blues. He then moved back to Edmonton in 2008 after 33 years on the Coast and Hank hooked up with old friends from Stettler and all members of Tacoy Ryde to form A Fist Full of Blues. A true bluesman and huge supporter of our local music scene. Hank also does a lot of charity work and has been a very big influence on stage to many of us. 

Jim - The respect Jim has as one of our areas tastiest guitarists gets him on to many stages as a sideman. The guy who always quietly sets up on one side of the stage and adds very tasty licks and can fill in any style of music from jazz to fusion to rock,country or blues. Very versatile and experienced from his many years on the west coast being very active in the music scene. I wanted to do a night with Jim and Hank in the mix to show off the experienced talent these two have. I think I can get away with some time manipulation with these great pros. Randy hmmm!

Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops (like store receipt blue!) comes clean using rubbing alcohol on a paper towel.

Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of scissors and cut each pad into halves. After years of having to throw away rusted and unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would be much more economical. Now a box of S.O.S pads last me indefinitely! In fact, I have noticed that the scissors get 'sharpened'' this way!
