Tim's Tip of the Day

Though many of Tisdale's streets do not have sidewalks it would seem to be common sense to use them when they are available but it is common to see people all over town strolling down the middle or busy streets trusting the drivers and the 40kph speed limit. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Find of the day

Beijing resumes radio exercise sessions
Twice a day at 10:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon government workers in China's capital must participate in an eight minute exercise session that is directed by radio. The programme had been cancelled for three years due to the Olympics but now it is the order of the day.

The Greenwater report
August 8, 2010
by:Gerald Crawford

Replacing water main on 107th Avenue
August 4, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: A full block of water main is about to be replaced as Tisdale attempts to reduce the number of water breaks by removing cast iron lines and replacing them with plastic. At the present rate this process is expected to take decades to finish the task.
Mid summer
August 2, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Sunny weather, forest fires in B.C. seems par for the course at this time of the year. Still almost four weeks until school re-opens and time enough to still catch West Nile Virus.
Avonlea is Riderville
July 29, 2010
by: Matthew Shire

Avonlea: Here is a photo essay of 100 pictures that show what the people of Avonlea have done in their town to decorate and win the right to be called Riderville. This is part of a competition between Saskatchewan towns for the honour and Avonlea is one of the five finalists.
Rafters for house ten
July 27, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Begun on June 21 this is the first house to be built in what is Tisdale's newest developing part of town. Last year water and sewer services were installed on what will in time become a new street just east of Heritage Road. This is a fairly big house sitting atop a wood basement with a south view.
Ploughing it under
July 26, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: More showers yesterday added to the difficulty of even destroying the illfated crop of 2010. Fields right around Tisdale are to wet for farmers to work the ruined crop down but in other areas farmers are busy at the task.
Locally generated weather
July 23, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: With so much water laying in the fields day time heating each day fills the skies with rising towering cumulus clouds as the evaporating moisture climbs into the atmosphere and forms clouds at the condensation level.
Housing start eight, a duplex
July 20, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Tucked in between the Maple Ridge Condo and the other dwelling on the block a new duplex is taking shape with the almost all of the internal and external walls standing. On monday house eleven got underway as a new basement was created on the Fairy Glen cul-de-sac.
Some clouds and fields
July 15, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: These pictures taken over the last few days show the Canola crops in bloom and the awesome forces that trundle through the prairie sky. The accompanyment is "Badaboom" from the sound track of the movie "The Fifth Element" by Eric Serra.
Flowers and a robin
July 13, 2010
by: Matthew Shire

Regina: One evening a week ago Matthew wandered around his Regina yard with camera in hand and collected this interest group of thirty-four images. These images were taken with a Canon Rebel and a telophoto lens. However, the robin was unpreturbed by his picture taking and was about five to six feet away in these pictures. We present these images in a slide show accompanied by Diana Krall's Narrow Daylight from "The Girl in the other room" album.
