Saturday Sessions June 3rd Presents

This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions show 674 presents guest vocalist - Rick Francis - is fairly well known in the music business and has been in it for a long time. He has played and entertained in half of our provinces since back in the 60's. Rick fronted a popular band called Patch for 10 years and also played in the band The Walkers which later changed the name to the Joe's. The last band he was in was called Souledout which lasted for 15 years.

Rick has played all kinds of music from rock to pop, country and even disco. As of late he's been getting out to lots of local jams and reconnecting with new and old faces on stage. Rick’s powerful voice, personality and stage presence are a real treat and proof of the experience he's gained as a frontman all those years. Happy to have Rick for a first time guest appearance at our show.

First Car Ever Caught Speeding To Be Displayed In The UK

First Car Ever Caught
This 1896 Arnold Benz Motor Carriage is largely held to be the very first car to receive a speeding ticket, and it's headed for the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Palace Court in the United Kingdom.

The UK in the 19th century was a tough place to have an automobile. The law at the time required drivers to maintain a speed of no more than 2 mph and be proceeded by someone walking in front of the vehicle waving a red flag. For reference, that's a little quicker than the average speed of an ambling cow.

The Things I See, Hear And Think

overstaffed or what
Time to revive my old column title as an outlet for folks to post appropriate items. Feel free to include your observations.

For instance this, which I witnessed yesterday morning about 8:15 a.m.

Our former neighbours in the house across the street moved to South America, but before doing so converted the house into two rental units, one on the main floor and a basement suite.

As I work on SAP in the mornings, I face the living room window and watch the world go by.

Yesterday morning I saw a brand spankin' new city of St. Albert four door pickup 4 x 4 truck pull into the driveway of that home.

A young woman in work attire and a safety vest got out of the vehicle with a clipboard in hand and walked into the back yard of the home. She was gone for about five minutes when she reappeared without said clip board and hopped back into the driver's seat of the truck.

She then backed the vehicle out of the driveway and slowly drove past our home.

Imagine my surprise, or maybe not, when I saw there were four people sitting in the truck, two in the front and two in the back.

Four people in one 4 x 4 to do what? Deliver a clip board?

Don New Caricature Small
I have heard people say that if you can land a job with the city of St. Albert, you've got it made. It certainly appears to be that way. Is the city overstaffed? Most folks think so and the city continues to prove it every day to one resident or another. Yesterday was my turn.

More Letters From Our Readers

* Sinc, as a diehard nostalgist I can't help but reflect upon the occasion in January, 1968, when I was transferred as "City Editor" to The Swift Current Sun, where you led a talented team who produced the newspaper by casting the type in molten lead, one line at a time!
Fast-forward through the introduction of "offset" production with its rudimentary computers that generated text on paper rather than lead; and the increasingly sophisticated production techniques that followed.
You mastered them all, created an enviable career as a business executive, and 50 years of friendship later, I'm proud to see that you're still in the game, feisty as ever in the realm of cyberspace.
Congratulations, ol' pal, on this most recent milestone moment. -
OR in Nipawin, SK

* Your 10th anniversary was a surprise. You kept that pretty secret until release day. I didn't realize SAP reached that far back. Demonstrates how diligently you kept at it.  I'll take a small bow for being mentioned, thank you. Really I just have a small part among all the moving bits you weave together each day. - Bixman, St. Albert

* Don: Just a short note to offer sincere Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary with St. Albert Place, your blog, etc. Never missing a day over a decade is outstanding. Good for you. I enjoy dialling you up and reading your site. Keep up the great work. Best. Your old Swift Current pal. - WRD in London, ON

What Orwell Saw—and What He Missed—About Today’s World

What Orwell Saw
While spending the last three years immersed in the works of George Orwell for a book I was researching and writing, I often was struck by how often his writing speaks to the problems of today. That’s especially impressive, given that he died in 1950.

The dystopian future Orwell portrays in 1984 helps illuminate our post-9/11 world. In the novel, the government of “Big Brother” carries on a perpetual war that, as in American life today, “involves very small numbers of people, mostly highly trained specialists, and causes comparatively few casualties. The fighting, when there is any, takes place on the vague frontiers whose whereabouts the average man can only guess at.” And just as young Americans today have lived with that anti-terror campaign all their lives, so too 1984’s hero, “Winston,” “could not definitely remember a time when his country had not been at war.” Orwell would not be surprised that the U.S. government, prosecuting such a war, officially endorsed the use of torture, for the first time in its history.

Nor would Orwell have been surprised by President Trump’s limited vocabulary of words like “sad,” “bad” and “amazing.” In 1984, the government purposely dumbed down language, with “excellent” and “splendid” replaced by “plusgood” and “doubleplusgood.”

Yet Orwell was hardly all-seeing.

A SAP Editorial

Today We Mark A Milestone
As We Begin Our 10th Year


MILESTONE JOURNEY
Back on June 1, 2008 we struck out on our own with our then new site, ‘St. Albert’s Place On The Web’ located at mybirdie.ca. Today marks the beginning of our 10th straight year of a private site serving St. Albert, now also published as stalbertsplace.ca

We abandoned the Blogspot format after some five years there billed as ‘The Things We See, Hear And Think’, following a seven year stint writing that same column for the now defunct Saint City News.

We moved due to an effort by some folks back then to have us shut down for daring to express our opinion online. That effort consisted of complaints about our coverage being lodged with the host, by whom we can only assume were the municipal politicians and administration of the day.

That freed us up to have our own identity with no affiliation or responsibility to any other, to host our very own site.

Today’s issue marks the 3,288th consecutive day that we have published SAP and the 10th time we have published on a June 1st. I use the term ‘we’ because I could not have done it without the assistance of many hundreds of readers who have submitted material to us along the way. Those people who care deeply about their community, wanting a voice unencumbered by an editor’s censorship in other local news offerings over these many years. And as well, dozens of people across Canada and even in other countries who have stepped up to participate.

I am particularly proud of my own personal efforts to maintain the site, never once having missed a publishing day in those 3,288 consecutive days. Some of those days spending hours in rural areas of the USA and Canada while on vacations to get the site online with very iffy and slow internet access. It happened from a hospital bed with only one eye to get the job done. And still other days that I felt so ill that it was a miracle that it gone done at all.

That alone is a huge undertaking and commitment to offering an alternative viewpoint in this community, that to my knowledge stands unmatched by any other individual.

What I am not particularly proud of, is a mayor and councillors who hold this site in disdain. I have owned this business in St. Albert, fully licensed by the city of St. Albert, and have held that business license now since 2001.

And what did I get in return? Not much. A mayor with an agenda that has refused to acknowledge my business, or the more than 2.5 million people who have read items here in these nine years. A mayor who has blocked me from any access to his social media accounts. Also councillors Brodhead, Heron and Osborne for no co-operation, as well. That includes many before them who refused to offer any response to anything I have ever asked on behalf of our readers.

The one man who did respect us though, was former city manager Bill Holtby. Bill addressed every issue we ever asked him about and we appreciate that recognition.

Thank goodness too, for councillors Hughes, MacKay and Russell who have always respected the fact that we are a local business and treat us like one.

That fact will be made widely known during the upcoming election campaign by SAP, so that residents know exactly what some council members stood for in this city the past and previous terms.

We will stand for the good and not the historical bad in the coming campaign. And we will continue to remind people on all social media of the votes by those same four councillors who denied you the voter, the right to voice your opinion in the form of a plebiscite on how your tax dollars would be spent. A rejection that gave rise to a revolt by over 6,700 residents to force council to allow us that right. A condescending 'we know better than you attitude', that carries on to this day.

The mayor though is no longer a threat and can do little more damage to this city, as he is not running for re-election. In fact, given the municipal inspection currently underway and his upcoming court appearance next month on July 26 for possible breaches of the MGA in a suit brought against him by local resident Steve Stone, we may even see him removed from office before his term is up.

This will be an election campaign about our future first, and focused on ridding ourselves of the past. A past that has seen the opinions of four councillors in particular, block voting to force their own agenda upon us.

Stay tuned for a revolution folks. Savour every moment of taking back your city. A vote for either Brodhead or Heron again is a vote for the past and its destruction. A vote for more of the same crap like millions wasted on a road to nowhere and a roundabout that only serves to destroy downtown traffic flow. A project with zero return on investment to local taxpayers. And there are many more examples of such waste that we vow to expose during this fall’s election campaign.

And who can forget the inaction of some members of this council, who stood by and did nothing when a sitting member of their own inner circle, resigned his seat to take a senior position with city administration and forced an expensive by-election? A move so tainted that local citizens rose up in protest against something that was repulsive to them. This alone will surely be an integral part of the findings of the ongoing municipal inspection, due just before the looming election.

A vote for anyone else is our future and along with it, a halt to increased taxation. But vote very carefully, folks. There are clones of these two waiting in the wings to reach into your wallets. Study the candidates and reject more of the same. Reject empire building and more expensive facilities in an economy that cannot support them.

And finally, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge some key people who have supported me along the way, whether with material assistance or advertising support. Key among the advertisers are Gary Nelson over at Global Cell as well as Linda and Pat Beier at LB’s Pub, both with us for most of the time since day one. And thanks also to hundreds of other people who have stepped forward with advertising support.

That support resulted in hundreds of community non-profit groups enjoying free publicity for upcoming events and free coverage of those events over the past nine years.

Two others who were, and remain, key to the content of the site are both too shy to step into the limelight with their true identities. Puzzle guy Bixman who along with the Sunday Whatzit? feature has contributed hundreds of other bits of trivia and humour for others to enjoy. He has made a significant difference, in fact more than any other single reader and I thank him.

Our Roving Reporter who spends countless hours attending events of interest in the area and sharing that experience with our readers is another. I owe her much as well.

Don New Caricature Small
Also to my wife of nearly 52 years, Ann. She has not only put up with my oddball work hours and countless more hours of concentration watching council, but has supported me through it all along the journey. I love her dearly.

And finally three men who sadly have passed, but who encouraged me often along the way, when I was down, particularly during some dark times when we were faced with pressure from city hall. Thanks to former local residents, friends and advisors, Deane Doucette, Andy Michaelson and Grahame Allen, gone but not forgotten. RIP gents.

- Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

- Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Dutch King Reveals Secret Life As Part-Time Pilot On KLM Airline

Dutch King Reveals
The king of the Netherlands moonlights as a part-time commercial pilot, he told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

King Willem-Alexander has spent 21 years as a co-pilot for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, working in the cockpit twice a month — even after he acceded to the throne in 2013.

It wasn't a secret that Willem-Alexander, who served in the Royal Netherlands Air Force, had a pilot's license. But no one knew how frequently he went incognito in the cockpit of regular commercial flights.

Didgeridoo And Chapman Stick Live

I started playing the Didgeridoo last year for breathing exercises and new musical elements. It is still of course a work in progress. However I have been having a lot of fun with it. I found the circular breathing good for health and well being in some ways similar to Yoga.

Saturday Sessions June 3rd Presents

This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions show 674 presents guest vocalist - Rick Francis - is fairly well known in the music business and has been in it for a long time. He has played and entertained in half of our provinces since back in the 60's. Rick fronted a popular band called Patch for 10 years and also played in the band The Walkers which later changed the name to the Joe's. The last band he was in was called Souledout which lasted for 15 years.

Rick has played all kinds of music from rock to pop, country and even disco. As of late he's been getting out to lots of local jams and reconnecting with new and old faces on stage. Rick’s powerful voice, personality and stage presence are a real treat and proof of the experience he's gained as a frontman all those years. Happy to have Rick for a first time guest appearance at our show.

Dinner At McDonald’s

Dinner At McDonald’s
An old couple walks into McDonalds. They order one hamburger, one order of fries and one drink. The old man unwraps the plain hamburger and carefully cuts it in half. He places one half in front of his wife.

He then carefully counts out the fries dividing them into two piles and neatly placing one pile in front of his wife.
He takes a sip of the drink, his wife takes a sip and sets the cup down between them.

As he begins to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them keep looking over and whispering
"That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them."

As the man begins to eat his fries, a young man comes over to the table. He politely offers to buy another meal for the couple. The old man replies that they're just fine - they're just used to sharing everything.

The surrounding people noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sits there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again the young man comes over and begs them to let him buy another meal for them.
This time the old woman says "No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything."

As the old man finishes and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again comes over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asks,
 
"May I ask what is it you are waiting for?"

The old woman answers, ”THE TEETH”.

Noah’s Ark Discovered? Researchers '99.9 Per Cent Certain'

Noah’s Ark Discovered?
For millennia, scientists and Christians alike have been searching for evidence the story was in fact gospel.

A team of evangelical Christian explorers found what they claim is “99.9 per cent” certainly evidence of Noah’s Ark beneath snow and volcanic debris on Mount Ararat in Turkey.

Noah's Ark Ministries International, a Hong Kong-based documentary team, claim to have found wooden pieces from a structure which carbon dates back 4,800 years and was found around 13,000 feet above sea level.

Details in the Sunday Express.

They had some informative people there who shared their knowledge with folks of all ages, (about three-year-olds to those 80+).

DSCF0012
The gent with the falcon was able to explain who the birds parents were and where they are nesting right now. Not sure if this is them BUT it is cool to watch the "birds at home”. Bell Tower Peregrine Camera - ACA.

Neither the falcon not the little owl seemed at all perturbed by people milling around them.

The gent with the pond water display had a flock of interested people around him, self included.

Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee Statue Removed In New Orleans

Confederate Gen. Robert
The statue of the Confederate general came down Friday afternoon (May 19) against a backdrop of partly cloudy skies and a throng of New Orleans residents who cheered and sang as a crane popped Lee off the column. They sung "Hey, Hey, Hey, Goodbye" and "We Shall Overcome" before a crew that worked throughout the day pulled the statue from its Doric marble column and lowered it to the ground.

Protesters who had maintained a presence at the removals of two other statues, of Jefferson Davis and P.G.T Beauregard, were largely absent. Throughout the day, curious onlookers visited the circle to watch the long process of removing the 16-foot statue from its 60-foot base. In the final hours, the mood was celebratory as people danced, sipped beer and wine and sat in festival chairs to watch New Orleans history unfold.

More in the Times-Picaynne.

Ramblings Of A Tired Mind

Ramblings Of A Tired Mind
- I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.

- I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age and calling it 'Pumping Rust.'

- When people see a cat's litter box they always say, “Oh, have you got a cat?” Just once I want to say, “No, it's for company!”

When The Hindenburg Was The Height Of Luxe In-Flight Dining

When The Hindenburg
Before it became a byword for disaster, the Hindenburg heralded an era of fine dining in the skies. Passengers received seating assignments for specific meal times. After dinner, many gathered in the pressurized bar and smoking lounge.

Courtesy of The Smithsonian National Postal Museum
These days, in-flight meal service often consists of a packet of pretzels and a can of soda. It's a far cry from the days of the Hindenburg, where the sumptuous dining options included multi-course meals served in an opulent dining room.

Before it became a byword for disaster 80 years ago this month, the Hindenburg was the state-of-the-art in ultra-luxury flight: a giant passenger airship composed of durable aluminum alloy filled with highly flammable hydrogen. (That would prove its downfall.)

It was conceived as a swank transatlantic travel option for the well-heeled that was faster than the deluxe cruise liners of its day, making the journey in two and a half days — twice as fast as the Queen Mary, the star of the Cunard line.

LIFE WONDER

By Don Hamaliuk


Do you ever wonder, how it all began
I keep looking up in wonder, to see it if I can
Who keeps directing traffic and how are they to know
When each and every one of us, should stay and then should go

Who makes all decisions, for every thought we think
And what keeps all the order, to keep us from the brink
Is there only one decider, in what we do today
Or are we left to wonder, finding our own way

Why is it so many of us, all have different views
And then we look for sameness, while listening to the news
Does it kind of make you wonder, how every thing just works
With all that is around us and all our people quirks

And now my mind is wondering back, to my reality
Of things I need to do today and people I must see
But do you ever wonder, how it all will end
And will that day be never, or just around the bend



The Sunday Whatzit?

The Sisterhood

The Sisterhood
The Matchmaker goes to see Mr. Avery, a confirmed bachelor for many years. "Mr. Avery, don't leave it too late. I have exactly the one you need. You only have to say the word and you'll meet and be married in no time!" says the Matchmaker.

"Don't bother," replies Mr. Avery, "I've two sisters at home who look after all my needs."

"That's all well and good, but all the sisters in the world cannot fill the role of a wife."

"I said 'two sisters'. I didn't say they were mine."

Mushrooms Julienne

Mushrooms Julienne
This French-Russian dish of mushrooms, cream and cheese may be made with or without béchamel sauce. The version presented here, which does use cream sauce, is adapted from the wonderful Russian cookbook Please to the Table by Anya von Bremzen and John Welchman, to whom I am indebted for many of the Russian recipes I use in my Paris kitchen.

Which mushrooms to choose? Cultivated white mushrooms are most commonly used for this dish, known in Russia as zhulien. But wild mushrooms — chanterelles, porcini or shiitake — will add exceptional flavor if they are in season.

More on the Everyday French Chef.
