The Blind Side

Looking west from Tisdale at 4:09 this afternoon
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.

Tim's Tip of the Day

It is a part of North American culture and seems to begin in every child''s sandbox and continues until the end of one's life and that is the romance and infatuation with automobiles. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Find of the day

Melvin and Melanie Brundage of Nipawin arrived in Haiti on the day of the earthquake and were at an orphanage when it occurred. The orphanage survived but they have returned home with out their adopted son as the adoption process was disrupted by the disaster.

Happenings In Tisdale:

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
January 13, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire
Near the end of October the house on this lot was destroyed by fire and now a new house stands in its place.
Mexican December holiday
January 12, 2010
by: Michael Townsend
Michael Townsend has contributed to this web site since its beginning in 1998. Through the years he has taken us mountain climbing and on numerous trips. This time he shares with us his pictures of his Christmas vacation in Mexico.
The Greenwater report
January 11, 2010
by: Gerald Crawford
This week's report chronicals the repair of a tire with a nail in it and the passing of a friend. This week's report has some pictures from the Park.
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
After taking a break for the holidays the Crawfords are back with us this week filling us in on their activities over the holidays. They went to and enjoyed a performance at Persephone Theatre, enjoyed time with family and friends and on Christmas toured the Enchanted Forest which will be open to tours until January 10th.
A new year and a new decade
December 30, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
There is no known cure for the continuous pressure of time. So it is that once again a year and a decade draws to a close and we must look into the coming year and the coming decade to consider what may befall us as time moves onward. This tradtion of making predictions for the coming year extends backward through the history of this web site and far beyond that. There have been times when the predictions have come to pass and other times when the future was simply of the specs. This year will be no better and perhaps no worse than others.
We call it Christmas
December 23, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
This truly one of those things that seems remarkably unrelated to its name. Evergreen trees decorated, Father Christmas, Santa Claus, Frosty the snowman, Rudolph the Rednosed reindeer, mistletoe, holly, gift giving, egg nog. . . the list is endless and all of these familiar things are only marginally related to the birth of Jesus of Nazareth 2009 years ago, give a decade one way or the other. So indeed what is this "season" really all about?
Reuse and recycle
December 22, 2009
by: Ken Styan
Though we in Tisdale prefer to recycle paper products rather then have them go off to the landfill but alas that is simply no longer an option in our community. Ken has come up with one way he can make use of something that we all throw away.
Canalta gets its first floor walls
December 21, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Work has been going on feverishly this past week and over the weekend including Sunday as the steel and wood construction of the first floor for the new motel takes shape between the Co-op Cardlock and Robin's Donuts. This story shows the development since the initial story back on October 22nd.
House number nineteen
December 18, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Construction in Tisdale looks like it is going right to the end of the year as this week the nineteenth housing start of the year. This involved a number of houses moved into Tisdale both nearly new and old but also two duplex, one triplex and a fourplex which actually means that their were 26 housing units created in Tisdale during this calendar year. Number 19 is being assembled by Farber Construction and is located on the north loop of Forrester.
