Fishing Alberta With Paul C.

These photos were taken north of Slave Lake while I was fishin' for walleyes. The Slave River, just down stream of the weir located next to Salve Lake, is a lot of fun for catch walleyes at this time of year. It's like fishing in a barrel there.

slave_jun2_12 slave3_jun2_12

The limit has been changed from three fish over 43 cm to one fish over 43 cm. We used live leeches and frozen minnows on a 1/4 jig using a dark green rubber body or yellow body. The peak times are in the wee hours of the morning or around sunset.

Dave the pro-hunter (above right) and I use fishing line that is 8 to 12 lb test XT ( extra tough) made by Berkley Fishing.
 
Take the time and explore northern Alberta and you will find unique fishing locations and wildlife every where.

bear1_jun2_12

I managed to take this shot of a bear while we were traveling at 100 km per hour and the bear was on the move crossing the highway. A tough shot to take, but it worked out well.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Old Butch

Old Butch
John was in the fertilized egg business.

He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets,' and five roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.

Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.

Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

John's favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!

When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

To John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.

He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Saint Lawrence County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell Piece Prize," but they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully in the next civic election, the bells are not always audible.

Miracle Molecule in Beer That May Make You Stronger

beermoliculeB
Scientists have discovered that a hidden vitamin in beer and milk called the "miracle molecule" may prevent obesity.

A new study found that nicotinamide riboside (NR), a molecule found to indirectly influence the activity of cell metabolism, could play an important role in preventing weight gain and diabetes, improving muscular performance and providing other "extraordinary health benefits," according to a Switzerland-based research team.

Researchers from the Polytechnic School in Lausanne say the results of the mice study were "impressive".

He Is ugly! World's Greatest 'Gurner'

This is a face only a mother could love ... but from now on you should have no trouble putting a name to it.

Tang Shuquan, 43, may appear very, very ugly in these pictures but his look has won him the Guinness World Record for making the most twisted face.

And now, he's launched a challenge to the public to see if anyone out there can match him.

Can you?

Perky Grandma Was First Breast Implant Patient

On the 50th anniversary of silicone breast implants, the first recipient said her experience has been a mixed bag — though mostly uplifting.

Great-grandma Timmie Jean Lindsey, 80, of Texas, said she wasn't seeking the silicone enhancers when she received them from their inventor at a Houston hospital in 1962.

She found the surgeon because she wanted some rose tattoos removed from her chest, and he told her she was the perfect first candidate for his revolutionary self-contained spheres.

About That Sunday Journal Thing

Unknown
Hi Don,
 
How is life? Good to see that you are still on top of things.

About that Sunday Journal thing. I too read the Journal most days and too bad for the Sunday edition. A little secret for you that you may already know. Buy yourself a yearly library subscription for $12, you then get access to the library’s online resources.

They have a little program called “Press Display” which I am sure you have heard of. Not only does it give you access to the Edmonton Journal full print version electronically, but to dozens of newspapers worldwide.

Keep in mind these are the current editions and are online as soon as the print version is off the presses, probably even before. Not only that, but you of course get full access to all of the library’s other resources as well.
 
Have a good day.

Mark Fraser
St. Albert


SINC SAYS:

Well, well Mark, that would seem to be a very affordable solution, especially for seniors who are online and can no longer afford the Journal's print edition. Thanks for the tip!

The New St. Albert Postage Stamp

stamp
St. Albert now has its' own "Postage Stamp." It looks fantastic and adds a special Botanical Arts touch to your outgoing mail! The St. Albert Stamp is real postage; you use it the same way you would use any other stamp.Stamps are valued at the current domestic rate. This means one St. Albert postage stamp gets any standard-size envelope (up to 30 grams) delivered anywhere in Canada.

So if you are looking for a St. Albert touch to incorporate into your outgoing thank you cards, invitations, or promotions, add a St. Albert stamp!

Also available is a package of postcards featuring images shot by four local photographers who took part in the Musée Heritage Museum "Take Your Best Shot" photo contest held for youth aged 8-18 years old. A story behind each of the photographers' photo is included on an insert card. The package consists of four postcards, four St. Albert stamps and is held together with the St. Albert bud icon paperclip. A true St. Albert keepsake! These packages are $8.95.

The stamps will be for sale at Business & Tourism Development and are available in sheets of forty only. The sheets will sell for $32.00 each.

St. Albert Expanded Beautification Program

program
It is now spring. What a great time to enhance your business and be able to access beautification dollars as well through the St. Albert beautification program. Last year we saw an abundance of flower barrels and hanging baskets throughout the community and a starting of evergreen planters for the colder months providing more colour and greenery to our winter. Many positive comments were received about such beautification efforts which mean more than positive comments but have also resulted in increased sales.

The beautification program has expanded to include all commercial areas in the City of St. Albert, and can provide you with a financial incentive to "Cultivate Your Business" in St. Albert. The program includes planters, hanging baskets, street furniture, perpendicular signage and custom bike racks. Each business is eligible for a maximum grant of $2500 in beautification grants.

For more information please contact Joan at 780-459-1725 or jbarber@st-albert.net.
The complete brochure and application form is also available online.

Toilet Rebate Program A Hit With Residents

low-flow-toilet-5
St. Albert residents are taking advantage of the City’s toilet rebate program to replace old, inefficient toilets with low-flush or dual-flush toilets to reduce water consumption.

To date, 175 applications have been processed for a total of $11,650.00 in rebates provided to residents. Another 21 applications have been approved (yet to be processed), and 175 applications are in the queue waiting to be verified for an additional $8,725.00 in rebates.

The rebate program is offered in partnership with C3 towards the purchase of new WaterSense labelled low-flush or dual-flush toilets. Residents get a $50 rebate for a low-flush toilet or $75 for a dual-flush toilet. The program which started March 19, 2012 has $30,000 of available funding.

“We are extremely pleased with the response so far to the City’s first toilet rebate program,” says Leah Jackson, Environmental Manager, City of St. Albert. Jackson believes that with the momentum this program is seeing, funding may be gone by the end of June. “Reducing indoor water consumption is an important environmental program for our city, and our residents are using this incentive to ensure water conservation plays a more prominent role in their homes.” In 2010, the average resident used 267 litres of water per day. The City of St. Albert has set a goal to reduce that number to 200 litres per day by 2020.

To be eligible to apply for a rebate, the low-flush/dual-flush toilet must be a WaterSense labelled toilet and a replacement unit. Units installed in newly constructed homes or add-on bathrooms are not eligible. One rebate per household.

One of the feedbacks from applicants has been the desire to be able to access more than one rebate per household. “We would love to offer multiple rebates per household but with limited funding, we want to ensure as many residents as possible have the opportunity to take advantage of this program,” says Jackson. Due to the interest and success of the program, a capital business case for 2013 will be put forward seeking further funding. Due to the limited funding available, one rebate per household will remain part of the criteria.

Visit here for more information and eligibility requirements. You can also call 1-888-537-7202 or email myrebates@C-3.ca.

Life, Explained

Life, Explained
The first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"

And God saw it was good.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"

And God, again saw it was good.

On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"

And God agreed it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."

So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

Famous Presidential Pooches

Heidi
If the pet-keeping habits of American presidents are any indication, owning a dog, is as American as apple pie.

In fact, forefathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson not only kept dogs but bred them as well (breaks the tedium of running a developing nation, we suppose).

Here’s a look at a handful of America’s most famous first dogs.

He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't even noticeable.

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart mouthed punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and
decided to see how tough he really was, before trying any pranks.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest.

There was dead silence. He has had no trouble with discipline.

With This Ring, I Me Wed

wedding_bands
Jennifer Hoes just celebrated her ninth wedding anniversary - to herself.

On her 30th birthday in 2003, the Dutch woman had a self-wedding, complete with cameras.

While it would be premature to call it a trend, several people since then have taken the vows of self-marriage as a way of contractually binding themselves to matrimonial values.

How's that again on the Mother Nature Network?

About That Edmonton Journal Sunday Paper

newspapersrip
Don,

Thinking about what you wrote the other day.  My Mom and Mel's Mom will miss the Sunday edition, mostly for the TV guide. At 78 and 79 they didn't move to digital cable so it's either watch the scroll or use the guide.  Maybe they will have to buy a Sunday Sun.  Wonder how many other seniors are like them?

Out here there is no home delivery of any paper.  Last spring when we returned from Arizona, we went to a home show and saw a Journal booth.  I stopped to asked if you could buy just an e-edition only.  They said no, you can get it with a paper subscription, but weren't sure if there was home delivery in Entwistle.  

Up until then, I would go the their site and the Sun's site to look at news/sports. But you can't see it all.  One day on the Sun's site there was a flashing button saying to click for information on their e-edition.  I clicked and found you could read the whole paper for $3.99 a month.  I signed up and love it.  

I start my day reading it and your site.  Why can't the Journal get on board?  It is also great for me when we are in Arizona, still get my paper.  I would have bought a e-subcription from them, might even have paid more.  I don't get it.

Kelly In Entwistle


SINC SAYS:

For the record, the Journal does indeed offer an e-edition only subscription, but at a much higher rate than that of the Sun.

It's A Funny Old World

It's A Funny Old World
Excerpts from Friday 5 November 1999:

• "After being charged £20 for a £10 overdraft, 30 year old Michael Howard of Leeds changed his name by deed poll to 'Yorkshire Bank Plc are Fascist Bastards'. The bank has now asked him to close his account, and Mr. Bastards has asked them to repay the 69p balance by cheque, made out in his new name." - The Guardian

• Phone hackers managed to break into the telephone system of 'Weight Watchers' in Glasgow, and changed the outgoing message to "Hello, you fat bastard". - The Guardian

Bronc Bustin', Wildwood Style Take Two

Hi Don,

Some parting shots, pun intended, from the Saturday night performance of the Wildwood Bronc Bustin'.
 
Sam Kelts of Millarville, Alberta:
wildwood rodeo-sam kelts

Dusty Hausauer of Dickinson, North Dakota:
wildwood rodeo-dusty hausauer

Todd Herzog of Penhold, Alberta, got a re-ride after his mount did a face plant:
wildwood rodeo-todd herzog

Todd Herzog was 15 when he was bucked off a horse and kicked in the head, leaving him with a blood clot in his brain that required surgery. Since then, he has to wear a helmet during saddle bronc riding for protection.

Al Popil
St. Albert

SINC SAYS:

That's quite a story Al. A guy has to really want to rodeo when he musters up the courage to ride after an experience like that one.

The World's Most Famous Explosive Cars

The World's Most Famous Explosive Cars
The last thing a driver expects when he gets behind the wheel is that his vehicle will catch on fire.

Unfortunately, for thousands of drivers over the years, this has been the reality.

While some automotive fires may be random, other cars have been prone to catching on fire or even exploding — causing property damage and even lives.

Details on the Mother Nature Network.
