Windchill at Fort Whyte Alive

It looked like a beautiful morning today and the temperature was starting at -4C this morning and rising to -1C during the day.  Unfortunately the forecast didn’t mention the wind and therefore the windchill.  It wasn’t just that I just missed it, since I talked to others who said the same thing.  I didn’t realize… Continue reading Windchill at Fort Whyte Alive

Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 4, Relax

There is just so much information in this museum, that it is impossible to take it all in at once.  Because of this, there are a couple of places to just relax.  Of course, there are plenty of spots to sit during your visit, but one place is here just to relax and reflect.  I… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 4, Relax

I was minding my own business and reading emails when I saw a one day trip to Churchill from CAA –… Continue reading My Own Journey to Churchill

Chester

Twelve years ago – on the day after Black Friday – Chester came home with me and my daughter, Angie. A couple of weeks earlier I had seen and responded to a message on one of the local dog email groups that indicated an Irish Setter was at a rescue and looking for a home. … Continue reading Chester

Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg

The Winnipeg Mint produces every coin that is produced for circulation in Canada (which apparently numbers in the billions). It was built in 1976 and I have never taken a tour of the facility.  I’ve heard it said that most people never tour attractions in their own city and this is one that I haven’t… Continue reading Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg
