Tim's Tip of the Day

Most of us need and do best by having a partner to fill in for our short-comings and encourage us even when things are going well. Its the way most social beings achieve their individual best when they are working in a partnership.(Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Happenings In Tisdale:

So, what about a deck design
July 23, 2009
by: Timothy and Judy Shire
For about four months of every Tisdale year we can enjoy the outdoor experience and a patio or deck make a perfect addition to every home and yard. The issue is, what is the best design for a deck? The answer is in these pictures of an outstanding example of how to skip the worry and trouble of complex design and construction and get the most out of your outdoor living space.
Eckart family celebrates a 99th birthday
July 22, 2009
by: Timothy and Judy Shire
Harvey, North Dakota:
In a world that seems to be changing even as we text on our cell phones it is important to recognise the importance of family and the part our families play in determining our self awareness and understanding our origins. This story is not about a Tisdale family but a Saskatchewan family from the Maple Creek area that traces its origins back to North Dakota, South Dakota, near Odessa in the Ukraine and indeed back to Germany. On July 5th we celebrated with the Eckart family as Louise Eckart marked her 99th birthday.
House 6 arrives
July 21, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
This project began on April 23rd with excavation started that day and susequently a foam form concrete basement was created but it was not until today that the house was moved into town. As few as two or three houses migrate to Tisdale each year. One of those that moved here last year was moved because contractors were unavailable to build a new house.
"One step"
July 20, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Though history records the actual first step on the moon was forty years ago today for those of us caught up in the event it really had been going on all week long and the actually event of astronauts on the moons surface was just part of a remarkable achievement by NASA scientists and the determination by the US government to see through such an expensive project.
The Greenwater report
July 20, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Lake Provincial Park:
In this report we get and explanation about last week's missing report and some insight into the strategy of roaming around in a motorhome each summer. The Crawfords attend a Perigord celebration for the Maquette family and tell us about some new lots that are available across the highway from Greenwater Park.
A couple of days in Dakota
July 16, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Harvey ND:
Its summer holiday time and we are definitely lagging behind a bit at Ensign. With trips and rest time posting has been spotty and will continue to be so for the next few weeks. We went to a family event in Harvey North Dakota on the July 4th weekend and visited towns, villages, a city and did some serious visiting this story tries to sum up some of the things we learned on our short visit.
The Greenwater report
July 13, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
This report actually from last weekend tells us some history of Kelliher and the outstanding 100th Anniversary that was the main feature of the weekend of the July 3rd, 4th and 5th.
Duplex, housing start eleven
July 13, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
This project got underway back on May 26th and during this past week its walls began to take shape. One of the main reasons for the slow progress is the size and scope of this project which is roughly equal to two full sized houses.
Canada Day in Regina
July 3, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Progressively year after year the rather constrained Canadian is becoming more and more demonstrable when it comes to showing their patriotism. Steadily we see young Canadians showing their seniors that being proud to be a Canadian is fashionable and perfectly okay for the typically reserved nature of our citizenry.
Dominion Day Challenge, Read your country's foundational documents
July 3, 2009
by: Robert Ede
Richmond Hill Ontario:
The Canadian constitution is fundamentally much more complex than what we see in the news each day and it is substantially more dynamic than the ancient 1776 document that is the basis for the government of our southern neighbours. Many of our concerns about the Canadian government are covered in the constitional documents but ignored. Check out Mr. Ede's link to the basics that establish Canadian democracy.
Oh Canada
June 30, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tomorrow is what we used to call "Dominion Day" but no matter what we call it there is no question that Canadians from coast to coast to coast appreciate their country and are dedicated to preserving those things that make this a great place to live and enjoy our days together. But all is not sweetness and light and we need to be on our guard to stand up for what we know to be Canadian and Canadian values.
