Tim's Tip of the Day

Not just squirrels and gophers have to hibernate through the winter but so must motor homes, speed boats and paddling pools. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Find of the day

Good and Boring
The massive recession that affected the financial and economic climate of the world began in the United States caused primarily by loose banking regulations. Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman points out that the problem did not affect Canadian banks because they are better regulated.

Happenings In Tisdale:

Walrus on the juniper tree
January 28, 2010
by: Ken Styan

Tisdale: Throughout Saskatchewan strange snow shapes have developed on anything on the leaside of the North wind that brought the heavy snow this past weekend. Cars, pickups, trees and just about anything else can be swallowed up by these formations that take an unusual form of their shaped by the movement of the winds that deposited the snow.
Parkland Photography club January meeting
January 27, 2010
by: Darlene McCullough

Tisdale: Bad weather saw six die hard members out for this month's photography club meeting and they had their work cut out for them with several provincial level photography contest collections to judge. The highlight of the club's activities for this month was doing presentations to the various senior citizens homes here in Tisdale.
Cleanup going well
January 26, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: The school buses ran today for Tisdale's schools and almost all of the streets in the community are passable but that is not the case with the country roads. The cleanup is going quite well but a steady drifting wind blew all day from the west causing problems for north and south country roads.
It stormed a bit
January 25, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Images by: Judy and Timothy Shire
Tisdale: The storm that enveloped all of southern and central Saskatchewan left a good deal of snow behind it the most we have seen dumped in Tisdale in the past 15 years. This however, the part of January when such storms are common and no one was particularily surprised other then for once Environment Canada actually got this one right.
The Greenwater report
January 25, 2010
by: Gerald Crawford

Saskatoon: Like the rest of in Saskatchewan the weather definitely got Gerald attention and like most drivers he had get out there and try driving in difficult conditions only to get stuck in his driveway. But, he survived and lived to tell us the tale for another week.
There's got to be a reason
January 19, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire
Many folks who take their religion seriously quite honestly believe that it is not for us humble and clearly limited humans to understand the great mysteries and we must accept that all things are part of Gods plan. That makes a good story but little by little the fog of awareness creeps forward as we are able to glean more and more about our past which indeed explains our present and future. This doesn't mean all things are cleared up it just means we are ever finding out new truths.
The Greenwater report
January 18, 2010
by: Gerald Crawford
Gerald gives us some insight into the recent mild winter we have been enduring and gives us something to think about as the news of our world saddens each day with more very bad news from Haiti.
This is what it means to be a Canadian
January 13, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire
The devastation and tragic loss of life in Haiti affects us because we are a nation of immigrants who share life on this planet with others who are at time faced with massive challenges and it is for us to reach out give a hand and do the right thing.
First house of 2010

Near the end of October the house on this lot was destroyed by fire and now a new house stands in its place.

by: Michael Townsend

The Greenwater report

Somebody else's problem
January 8, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire
Highway #6:
Though the phenomena had been noticed by many before it was humourist writer Douglas Adams in his Hitchhiker's Guide, Life, the Universe and Everything that he described a common effect or field that happens when everyone it seems ignores the obvious.
Maybe its time for an election
January 6, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire
For the second year in a row the Prime Minister for reasons known only to himself has shut down parliament. Without the hustle of the daily question period and being called on the actions he and his government takes they can put their feet up and there is nothing anyone can do about it. If he does not want to be Prime Minister in a democracy then perhaps its time he had an opportunity to go back to his separatist roots in Calgary.
The Greenwater report
January 5, 2010
by: Gerald Crawford
