Friday's Rainmaker Rodeo Action

Hi Don,

Some quick snaps from the St. Albert Kinsmen Rainmaker Rodeo Friday night.

Vance Kremp of Barrhead on Haywire in the bareback event:

Jesse Anton of Strathmore gets a good ride atop Amazing Grace in the Saddle Bronc competition:

As for Friday night, the cowboys did not fare well. The infield is a little soft so the livestock didn't have a chance to show their "real" stuff of which they are capable.

Fishing Alberta With Paul C.

This week we focus on water safety and in particular life jackets and personal flotation devices also known as PFDs. There have been some recent accidents in the news that brings this issue to the forefront for me. Let's start with weather conditions while out at the lake.

Keep your eye on the sky for changing conditions. Alberta weather is know for rain one minute, then snow the next. Environment Canada has a cool web site for looking at  satellite imagery and doppler radar that shows approaching rain and thunder storms. Their web site is
http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca There are a selection of weather receivers that you can purchase at The Source or Radio Shack.

The May long weekend was the time of year that people are itching to get outdoors. The weather may be nice but the water is very cold as the ice has not being off for long. Hypothermia will set in a few minutes. It makes muscle movement quite hard and means that swimming is next to impossible.

There are two different types of buoyancy devices that can make all of the difference. A life jacket has to have the ability to turn you over in the water with your head up. This prevents drowning in the event you hit your head while falling from the boat. I think these devices should be law that all children under the age of ten have to wear. I see lots of parents with small children have them wear a PFD. The PFD does not turn you face up when in the water. I do not recommend a PFD for anybody. Check life jacket for approval under transport Canada and ULC. Check the date of the device to make sure it has not expired. Transport Canada has a good web site for Boater Education.

life1 lifejacket

Here are photos of Dave the pro-hunter and myself out catching walleye from the North Saskatchewan River up stream near Devon. I am holding a goldeye (left) that also can be caught on the fly rod.  

nsr_may21_12 nsr4_may21_12

Any large floating fly will do and as usual, the evening bite is quite fun. We used black and yellow 1/4 ounce jigs with rubber bodies tipped with a frozen minnows. I highly recommend even the novice fishermen to try the mighty NSR.

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

Golf Speak With David Feherty

Golf Speak With David Feherty
Feherty is a Golf Channel announcer who finds very unique, colourful and uninhibited ways of explaining or describing whatever is on his mind. Probably always on time delay these days.

Feherty Quotes:

“They don’t do comedy at the Masters. The Masters, for me, is like holding onto a really big collection of gas for a week. It’s like having my buttocks surgically clenched at Augusta General Hospital on Wednesday, and surgically unclenched on Monday on the way to Hilton Head.”

Jim Furyk’s swing - “It looks like an octopus falling out of a tree.”

Return of the Vacuum Tube

Amp _glow
Peer inside an antique radio and you'll find what look like small light bulbs.

They're actually vacuum tubes—the predecessors of the silicon transistor. Vacuum tubes went the way of the dinosaurs in the 1960s, but researchers have now brought them back to life, creating a nano-sized version that's faster and hardier than the transistor.

It's even able to survive the harsh radiation of outer space.

Everything old is new again story here.

More New Taxes Courtesy Of This Council

sata-logo
Hello All:
 
I've attached the May Newsletter (read it here) which highlights the increase in taxes coming to you soon courtesy of you current city Council.  Take a look to find out how they might impact you based on your neighbourhood and how assessment values changed last year.  Some folks will have an increase less than 3.8% and some will have more than 3.8%.  In addition, most homeowners will see their utility costs increase another 9.3% this year to build the city's utility savings account.
 
Also, the next regular members meeting for SATA will be June 26th, 2012.  Please join us at the Community Hall at 7:30 pm.
 
Lynda Flannery
Director
St. Albert Taxpayers Association

SINC SAYS:

Raising utility rates again by nearly 10% completes the third consecutive year and now this council has driven utility rates up by 30% in just three years, an inexcusable burden on taxpayers. Shame on this misguided council.

Osprey - The Ultimate Fisher

Wonderful footage of an osprey catching fish.

Hovering at moderate height, the osprey dramatically plunges down feet first to snatch fish from the water's surface. A shake of the head as it emerges from the water; the osprey carries its skillfully captured prey with its long talons.

Mama's Bible

Mama's Bible
Four brothers left home for college and became successful doctors and lawyers.

One evening over dinner, they discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother.

The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "And I had a large theater built in the house."

The third said, "And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this
preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible. It took ten preachers almost eight years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed. After the celebration Mama sent out "Thank You" notes.

She wrote: Milton, the house you built is so huge that I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was tough, but delicious. Thank you so much."

Love, Mama

Gastroenteritis Outbreak Linked To Reusable Shopping Bag

1910_PC_GREEN_Canadas_Greenest_Shopping_Bag_-_(EN)_-_(500x500)
You know those woven reusable shopping bags we all drag along to the grocery store with us? Well, now one of those has been linked to a norovirus outbreak at a girls' soccer tournament.

In 2010, a group of 17 young Oregonian women, aged between 13-14, and four adult chaperones, went to Washington for a soccer tournament, during which eight of them got sick with gastroenteritis — and this small case shows just how incredibly well norovirus can spread.

Meat's Macho Image Keeps Guys Away From Veggies

Meat's Macho Image
Study participants routinely linked more masculine people and behaviours with men, while women were more associated with vegetables and sushi.

A bloody steak or char-grilled burger may be just what evolution ordered to bulk up a man's muscles in preparation for a big-game hunt. But even today, when meat is more likely to come cut and packaged than bloodied on the forest floor, both men and women tend to view the protein as masculine and macho, finds a new study.

These great questions and answers are from the days when 'Hollywood Squares' game show responses were spontaneous, not scripted. Peter Marshall was the host asking the questions, of course.

Peter Marshall: What are "dual-purpose cattle" good for that other cattle aren't?

Paul Lynde: They give milk... and cookies, but I don't recommend the cookies.

Peter Marshall: According to Amy Vanderbilt, what is the maximum length of time you and your fiancé should be engaged?

Rose Marie: Engaged in what?

- Brings his very energetic playing style to our stage. Glenn plays a chicago,deep south blues styles with B.B King, T-Bone Walker and Bo Diddley coming to mind. I first saw and sat in with Glenn when we played at J.R's Pub at their Thursday night jam and his stage antics surprised me. He has been around a long time and is well known among the blues community. Traditional blues will be on the plate and Glenn's energy and strong connection with the crowd will join Jim, Randy, and I this Tuesday.

Grandchildren Are Special

Grandchildren-are-special-n
When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects.

Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."

Two Northern California Cities Dump Red Light Cameras

speed-on-green
Two more California cities have given up on the use of red light cameras. On Tuesday, the city councils in Emeryville and Yuba City each voted to discontinue the use of automated ticketing machines, primarily out of a concern that the programs were failing to generate the expected amount of revenue. Officials were also upset that the programs have been tying up police resources.

"Eliminating automated red light enforcement would eliminate the city's negative account balance with Redflex and allow the administrative personnel time spent by an officer to be directed elsewhere," Yuba City Police Sergeant Michael Green wrote in a memo to the council.

Perhaps St. Albert should follow suit? -

The Photography Of Al Popil

Hi Don,

Some snaps from yesterday's (Saturday) performance of the Big Horn rodeo in Caroline, Alberta. Very impressed with the stock and as usual, the stock won.

A saddle bronc rider gets barrel rolled by his mount and a first time novice bareback rider gets tossed. The saddle bronc rider escaped serious injury but a couple of contestants had an ambulance ride to the hospital.

My first time here and, photographically speaking, an excellent rodeo corral layout to shoot from.

Eh, What's Up Doc?

bugs
'Eh, What's up Doc?' joins 'That's All Folks!' as the best-known lines from Tex Avery's Looney Tunes cartoon series. It was delivered by Bugs Bunny, while nonchalantly chewing on a carrot, in most of the cartoons in which the character appeared, beginning with A Wild Hare, 1940.

This was the first Bugs Bunny cartoon, although Bugs wasn't named until the second cartoon - Elmer's Pet Rabbit ('Happy Rabbit', a prototype Bugs Bunny with a somewhat different personality had appeared earlier).

Avery explained how the line became established in the numerous cartoon confrontations between Bugs Bunny and the hapless hunter Elmer Fudd.

Full story here.
