Fishin' Alberta With Paul C

There have been many out of out of town fishing trips when I have dropped off a catalog in a nearby store for my tackle business. Last year I ran across a little store called Locol Groceries. They are located in Smith, Alberta.

Locol4 May 45, 12
Dave the pro-hunter and I stopped to get something to drink and eat while in search of walleye in the area. This store is near Fawcett Lake, Slave Lake, Slave River, Athabasca River and Moose River. All of these locations offer excellent fishing and you can do well fishing from shore. There are huge walleye to be caught out of the Athabasca River.

Last year I contacted the owner and set up the store with my tackle. Located next to the store is their liquor store.

liquorlocol
This store has been around for a very long time and the old rustic look is appealing. The store has displayed some antiques as well. They also carry live bait that includes worms, minnows, and the all important live leeches that are deadly for catching walleye. Walleye also like frozen minnows as well. Be sure to check the fishing regulations to see if there ii any bait bans.

If you are in the area stop by and say 'Hi' to Colleen and her staff.

Walleye are fun to catch and are prized by many anglers. Dave and I bait run off of the bottom of the lake. A jig head and sometimes with a rubber body and baited often will produce some nice size walleye.

Below is photo of Dave the pro-hunter landing another walleye near sunset on the Slave River.

Mini-Tour Player Fires 16-Under 55

16 Under
Possibly the lowest score in golf history.

Rhein Gibson's round of 55 could be the lowest ever recorded in golf history.

A mini-tour player by the name Rhein Gibson did something last week that could be the greatest accomplishment in the history of the game.

He went out with a couple of buddies to play a round at River Oaks Golf Club in Oklahoma, a course he would frequent during his time at Oklahoma Christian University, and shot a 16-under round of 55, a number that is said to have at least tied, if not beaten, the lowest round ever recorded in golf history.

Down Mexico Way In Wine Country

SINC SAYS: A reader from Toronto who asked to be known as 'Your friend Miguel from Toronto' sent us this report on his stay in Mexico's wine country.

I enjoy the sights and sounds of the Guadalupe Valley, a wonderful wine producing region in Mexico about half an hour from where I am staying. (Friends tell me it feels like being in Portugal). I've been to the valley twice, but not to this place yet.

You drive south along the breathtaking coastal road (called the 'scenic' road), then turn inland and after a few short minutes, the ocean sounds die as does the wind and
this beautiful valley full of olive and grape vines spreads before you with its siren call.

I had the best meal since I've been down here, in that area yesterday. A restaurant in a garden where you eat underneath a 100 year-old-tree in a tiny village at the end of a dirt road that you'd never expect to hide such a gem of a restaurant. The chef comes up with combos that I've never heard of but are delicious.

A wonderful combination of fresh halibut rolled up, stood on end, (like a tower) stuffed with big shrimp and rice/risotto and mushrooms with a mild cream sauce sitting on a slice of pineapple, with a side of warm seafood medley on a baked avocado half. One of the people at our table audibly gasped when it arrived. Mmm, with a nice glass of local chardonnay. They don't even have a website and stop accepting guests at 5:00 p.m. (7:00 p.m. in the 'summer')

100_0903
We visited two wineries yesterday, one quite famous, "L.A. Cetto".

Here's a video in spanish.

Nice champagne for $7.50. Found out the price at the cashier and called back for a second bottle, but should have bought six. A great wine tasting room with a knowledgeable sommelier type guy who took us on a delightful and informative journey of their wines.

My friend bought a bold cab-sauv for $20 that would easily cost $40 or $50 in Canada. Formal tasting room indoors where you can kibitz with the local wine aficionado.

Dona Lupe is an organic winery.

Here's a video in english.

We sat outside under a fabric roof that gently wafts in the breeze under a sky so blue, it feels as it was just created for you. The only sounds you hear are the laughter of the happy guests, the lone staccato hammer of a worker in the distance and the cluck of a very robust rooster. We had a nice antipasto type plate of local cheeses and deli meats to go with our tasting of their organic wines.

A very friendly little cat comes up to us for a few morsels of cheese along with that rooster for bread that needs to keep up his energy. We went from dry whites to a nice merlot to a honey wine that had a wonderful finish and surprisingly not too sweet.

They have a great little shop with a myriad of jams, jellies and spreads with the flavours of local chiles and herbs and they make thin crust home made pizza

I have many more kilometres to go in Baja before I sleep (with apologies to Robert Frost).

Hasta luego mi amigos!

Down At The Retirement Home

Three old ladies were sitting side by side in their retirement home reminiscing.

The first lady recalled shopping at the green grocers and demonstrated with her hands, the length and thickness of a cucumber she could buy for a penny.

The second old lady nodded, adding that onions used to be much bigger and cheaper also, and demonstrated the size of two big onions she could buy for a penny a piece.

The third old lady remarked, 'I can't hear a word you're saying, but I remember the guy you're talking about.

Coffee Lovers Less Likely To Die

coffee_cup_jpg1
Men who drank six cups of coffee or more a day had a 10 percent lower risk of dying; for women, it was 15 percent lower, according to a large new study.

Coffee drinkers who worry about the jolt of java it takes to get them going in the morning might just as well relax and pour another cup.

That’s according to the largest-ever analysis of the link between coffee consumption and mortality, which suggests that latte lovers had a lower risk of death during the study period.

Why is that?

Steak Specialists Discover a New Cut of Beef

xlarge
Steak Specialists Discover a New Cut of BeefTurns out that what happens in Vegas no longer stays in Vegas—and that's a good thing. A self-proclaimed Meat Geek has teamed up with Oklahoma State University to devise the first new style of steak in years.

"The Vegas Strip Steak is the latest and perhaps last steak to be found from the beef carcass," said Jacob Nelson, a value-added meat processing specialist (and owner of the best job title of all time) at the Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center of Oklahoma State University. The Vegas Strip is the brainchild of Tony Mata, of industry group Mata & Associates, who approached Nelson and the FAPC for help developing the cut.

Elephants That Defy Human Explanation

ELEPHANT-WHISPERER-US-1-269x400
For 12 hours, two herds of wild South African elephants slowly made their way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their lives.

The formerly violent, rogue elephants, destined to be shot a few years ago as pests, were rescued and rehabilitated by Anthony, who had grown up in the bush and was known as the “Elephant Whisperer.”

For two days the herds loitered at Anthony’s rural compound on the vast Thula Thula game reserve in the South African KwaZulu – to say good-bye to the man they loved.

But how did they know he had died?

The Degradation Of Politicians' Behaviour

what-makes-a-politician-corrupt
Don,

A huge weakness in our "democratic" system is that taxpayers are busy as (perhaps) never before with their family/personal lives, and educated to believe that it's OK not to stay informed on the doings of governments and voicing opinions.

If you'll look at the history of the Athenian democracy, you'll see that, while the common folk were forced to participate in state decision making, they dragged their feet as best they could.

So. "While the cat's away, the mice will play."

And that degrades politicians' behaviour. If one won't pay a price for one's behaviour as a politician, then where is the motivation to "do what is best for the greatest number"?

There is none. Rather, one is motivated to do what's best for oneself and one's pals. It only stands to common sense.

DARP is a perfect example of a city project that few taxpayers understand. Wading through the hundred-page document appeals to few taxpayers. In essence, it's a 35-year program to rebuild downtown. It'll cost something over $300 million. Each year, as much money as possible will be squeezed out of residential taxpayers, without creating a revolution. It will benefit residential taxpayers almost not at all.

Deane Doucette
Grandin

SINC SAYS:

Everyone I ask is against DARP except council. Such a shame they cost taxpayers money to please themselves with zero benefit to residents.

I am honoured that your support of the Tuesday show has helped me to present 400 Tuesday nights in St. Albert. This is a very special night and I extend a very heart felt thanks to all of you who promote our music scene that has meant so much to our longevity.

MILESTONE - 400th Show

Bob Jahrig (Guitar and vocals)

Marc Ladoucer (Guitar, mandolin and vocals)

Bob
- Edmonton based singer/songwriter and has been involved in the Alberta music scene for several years.  He has released two CDs, Tree Tops in 2002 and Colour of the Moon in 2008. Bob’s songwriting reveals his love of language, melody and a search for beauty in the human spirit and the natural world. His unique guitar style and unforgettable voice compliment a poetic lyricism. His inspiration comes from family, his hobby as an amateur astronomer and the wilderness he experienced growing up in northern Ontario, Alaska and Alberta. In addition to folk venues in Edmonton, Calgary and outlying areas, Bob performed at the Edmonton Folk Festival in 2003 and had one of his songs scored by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in 2004. He has opened for such musical luminaries as Ian Tyson, Tim O’Brien and Bill Bourne. 

Marc - has come full circle in his musical career starting out in a punk rock band, moving on to blues and R&B and for the past 12 years, straight ahead folk and bluegrass. Besides playing in Down to the Wood (a bluegrass trio), Marc is a sought after sideman and studio musician, lending his guitar and mandolin expertise for artists such as Karla Anderson, Anna Somerville, Andrea House and Jessica Heine. Great to have these two respected artists joining Jim, Randy and I in the house for the 400th show.

Rhubarb Collins

Jasper Soffer, bartender at the Mulberry Project in New York City, created this simple-to-prepare seasonal cocktail for our story Spring Cocktails Perfect for Brunch.

The rhubarb simple syrup, Soffer explains, is simultaneously sweet and tart, not unlike a rhubarb-apple crumble or a strawberry-rhubarb pie.

If you want to make this drink outside rhubarb's short early-spring season, frozen fruit makes a great substitute.

See the recipe at epicurious.

Reader Needs Help Identifying Bird

jackdaw

Don,

These birds were living in Sterling Castle in Scotland.  We can't seem to identify them.  Would think someone on mybirdie.ca could crack the mystery though?

They were as mean as they looked, dive bombing people.

SINC SAYS:

A bit of research leads me to believe this bird is a
'Jackdaw'. We'll see if others can provide confirmation.

The Japan Files - Sushi Restaurant Experience

Our mystery traveller visited by a Sushi restaurant for a unique experience. You help yourself to what you fancy from a conveyor belt. If you special order an item from the screen next to your table, the item is delivered by bullet train. You simply off load the items and send the train back to kitchen! Very, very cool. One pays by how many plates you use with each plate costing 100 yen.

Playing Tomorrow Night At LB's Pub

moosehead3dsignsmall
I am honoured that your support of the Tuesday show has helped me to present 400 Tuesday nights in St. Albert. This is a very special night and I extend a very heart felt thanks to all of you who promote our music scene that has meant so much to our longevity.

MILESTONE - 400th Show

Bob Jahrig (Guitar and vocals)

Marc Ladoucer (Guitar, mandolin and vocals)

Bob
- Edmonton based singer/songwriter and has been involved in the Alberta music scene for several years.  He has released two CDs, Tree Tops in 2002 and Colour of the Moon in 2008. Bob’s songwriting reveals his love of language, melody and a search for beauty in the human spirit and the natural world. His unique guitar style and unforgettable voice compliment a poetic lyricism. His inspiration comes from family, his hobby as an amateur astronomer and the wilderness he experienced growing up in northern Ontario, Alaska and Alberta. In addition to folk venues in Edmonton, Calgary and outlying areas, Bob performed at the Edmonton Folk Festival in 2003 and had one of his songs scored by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in 2004. He has opened for such musical luminaries as Ian Tyson, Tim O’Brien and Bill Bourne. 

Marc - has come full circle in his musical career starting out in a punk rock band, moving on to blues and R&B and for the past 12 years, straight ahead folk and bluegrass. Besides playing in Down to the Wood (a bluegrass trio), Marc is a sought after sideman and studio musician, lending his guitar and mandolin expertise for artists such as Karla Anderson, Anna Somerville, Andrea House and Jessica Heine. Great to have these two respected artists joining Jim, Randy and I in the house for the 400th show.

* When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

* You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

* One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

* Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

The Rules In Rural Alberta

The Rules In Rural Alberta
Listen up City Slickers!

* So every person in rural Alberta waves. It's called 'being friendly'. Try to understand the concept.

* If that cell phone rings while an 8-point buck and three does are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

* Yeah, we eat meat and potatoes. You really want sushi and caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.

* The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer hunting season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

* We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

Welcome Another Photographer To SAP

Today we are pleased to welcome another local photographer to St. Albert's Place. Paul Dicaire is a Montreal native who moved to St. Albert via Winnipeg back in 1995.

Paul stumbled across our web site and wrote, "I first became aware of your website about two or three weeks ago while I was visiting either the St. Albert Taxpayers Association website or the Arts and Heritage Foundation website and I came across a link to your site.  I liked it immediately. There's something for everyone, no biases, powered by the people and businesses of St. Albert. It connects with the community. A friend mentioned your city satisfaction survey and suggested I visit your website. I did and I browsed your site for a while after finishing the survey and I eventually came across the photo section. The rest is, as they say, academic."

Paul sent along some samples of his work and we are always glad to add more pictures to SAP, particularly the work of local residents.


IMGP6363-2-2
This image was taken just outside of Barry's Bay, Ontario. The image was shot in October, 2009,  just after an early morning snowfall.

Cart tracks 5 bw
This is an image of old mine cart tracks taken in Nordegg. At the time I was shooting this, unbekownst to me, there was a 300 lb. cougar roaming the town.

KeppochE
This is Keppoch Beach, in Prince Edward Island. It's a private beach about five or six miles east of Charlottetown. I spent a great portion of my summers on this beach swimming, beachcombing, finding and cooking crab on a beach fire.

Simple Home Remedies Are Great

Simple Home Remedies
Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold the vegetables while you chop.

Avoid arguments with the females about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.

For high blood pressure sufferers ~ simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure on your veins. Remember to use a timer.

A mouse trap placed on top of your alarm clock will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. You'll be afraid to cough.

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
