In other goings-on, there are a number of forthcoming trips for which I am slowly preparing. On April 07 I will fly to San Francisco to attend a meeting at this conference. Afterwards I will spend a few days in Victoria to visit friends before returning to Edmonton. In May I will be in Lethbridge for the long weekend, with a day trip to Sunburst MT to attend my friend’s daughter’s high school graduation. On June 02 I’m off to Denver to attend this conference, returning on June 07. On June 09, I’m off to NYC for nine days, this time using a Steely Dan concert on June 11 at The Beacon Theatre as the ostensible excuse for what I think will be my 15th visit to the Big Apple. Beyond this assortment of jaunts, I don’t have any other firm plans for summer vacation at this time.

God Bless The Onion.

.: I don’t know what to make of this, but I smiled while I watched it. Turn up the sound and enjoy. Too bad the screen isn’t bigger. If this really is someone’s house somewhere in BC, it must drive the neighbours nuts, but what creativity! Does anyone know what the name of the music playing with the lights? I thought I heard a bit of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen in the mix.
