Not a Nieuport but a Camel
Tuesday
January 13, 2003
by: Brian D. Marlatt
White Rock, B.C. : Yes I should have known two guns instead of one. Brian gives us some details on one of the most outstanding fighters in history and built by a company that continues to produce outstanding aircraft to this very day.

Catch 22 for the Tories
Tuesday
January 13, 2004
by: Brad Thomson
Ottawa : Brad wrote this story on December 31, 2003 but I was unable to post it until today and it seems like the perfect time to do so with Peter MacKay announcing this morning that he is unable to participate in the contest for leadership of the newly merged Conservative Party. But Brad's is not the last word on this subject as we post two other stories on the same topic one by Joe Heuglin and the other by Bruce Federick.

1200 Tuesday - Overcast stratocumulus 8/8th 1ceiling 1,200, visibility 7, -14º, wind 8 knots at 080º, altimeter 30.09, light snow WeatherLog

Tim's Tip of the Day

Wacom's various tablets that allow input into your computer with a pen and your regular handwriting. Microsoft Office 2002's Word, Excell, Explorer all have hand writing recognition and Apple's Mac OS 10 uses "Inkwell" technology which has handwritting recognition in AppleWorks, Mail, Safari and other applications. The Pen is back!

Kevin's find of the day

Saskatoon police search for a killer. This CBC archive site has many video clips that report on the Jan. 31, 1969 murder and rape of Gail Miller. David Milgaard was convicted and served a full sentice for this crime which it was proven that he did not commit. The first clip shown details Larry Fisher who has been since convicted of the crime.

Ensign Notes

Will do my best to catch on a backlog of submissions that I was unable to post when they arrived.


The hypocrisy of conventional economic gurus: Exporting America and combating terrorism
Tuesday
January 13, 2004
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: This story and its wealth of references point out the preculiar and conflicting conclusions that the economic gurus have drawn about the negative economic conditions that are engulfing the world as a result of the selfish behaviour of the United States.

PC party loyalists reconstitute the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada
Tuesday
January 13, 2004
by: Joe Hueglin
Niagara Falls: This news release came out last Friday and unfortunately we were unable to post at that time but with MacKays announcement not to run for leadership of the Conservative Party this story takes on a new meaning and has some long reaching consequences in the coming spring election.

The Greenwater Report
Monday
January 12, 2004
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: We did not have a picture to go with last week's Greenwater report so today's report includes both this week's report and last week's column. Looks like Gerald is coping pretty well with the snowfall yesterday and Saturday night.

The Scandal of the Century: Saskatchewan Authorities found guilty of malicious prosecution
Monday,
January 12, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: The trial is over and the judge has ruled that the prosecutor, the police investigator and a therapist all worked together to maliciously prosecute a number of people sending one person to jail for a crime that not only did the accused not committ but a crime that never ever occurred. This story gives some insight into the thoughts that went into the judge's decision.

John would have liked it
Wednesday
January 10, 2004
Saskatoon: On Sunday we were at the John Diefenbaker airport in Saskatoon. Though Saskatoon has every reason to be proud of the renovated city owned facility I am certain the old guy would be so pleased to have his name on this portal. This story includes a QuickTime VR of the inside of the airport.

Icy wind from the North
Friday
January 2, 2004
Tisdale: How appropriate to begin the new year with appropriate weather. It was noon when we produced the pictures for this story and -21ºC with a nasty North wind. The story includs a QuickTime Virtual Reality Panorama.(400K)

2004 as it looks from here
Thursday
January 1, 2004
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Yes its time once again to gaze deeply into the salad bowl and come up with some insights into the new year.

Europe and Italy
Wednesday
December 31, 2003
From: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: Mario is a regular serious contributor to this site and today he is bringing us a little humor. We all know how intense Mario and his fellow country-men can get but it is equally true that a fine sense of the ideosyncracies of Italians and their way of life.

New Advents Facing a New Year
Tuesday
December 30, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
Edmonton: The new year is filled with adventure for those who follow and support politics in this fair land. The new Conservative Party is anointing Stephen Harper and the new prime minister will send us all to the polls in the spring. Ah! just the winter to get through.

So you got a camera for Christmas, Now what?
Saturday
December 27, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: The magic of picture taking is less than a positive experience if you expect things to happen without planning and forethought. This is a bit of advise on how to make the results useful and useable for you.

May the blessing of Christmas be with you all
Wednesday
December 24, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Charles Dickens captured the wonder of Christmas in his "Christmas Carol" and we all remember the line from Tiny Tim "God Bless us everyone."

Bringing Peace at Christmas with our hopes and work
Wednesday
December 24, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: A message of peace and hope.

Van versus wheel and tire
Tuesday
December 23, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Rose Valley : Trip from Winnipeg nearly complete when a wayward tire torpedoes van early this morning.

The Greenwater Report
Tuesday
December 23, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: Things have warmed up out at the park while Gerald was off on a hockey trip to Manitoba. But this week's report includes Fisherman's Cover holiday hours and a salute to the new Sears outlet in Porcupine Plain.

The first hundred years
Tuesday
December 16, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Oshkosh Wisconsin: A hundred years ago powered flight began and it has been rising ever since. We celebrate this occassion with a set of 29 pictures mostly from the third decade of flight when it became a facility of life instead of a screwball experiement.

Christmas baking
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Of course you can go to the bakery but if you want to give someone something that really means something, make it yourself. How about some great cinnimon buns?

Judge Martinís Cabinet on the job titles and record, not on map locations
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Ottawa: The very large government set forth by the new prime minister has many wondering about costs. Knowing that the prime minister watches the flow of money carefully he has served up a very large platter of government this means he has two choices, either cut many existing programmes or follow the pattern he has followed in the past creating excuses to slap on more taxes.

The Greenwater Report
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: Winter advances as Greenwater folks get together for a pot luck, some fishing stories, and Porcupine's Bar is getting ready to open.
