Pics from a hike halfway up Blackcomb Mountain this week (near Whistler, British Columbia, Canada). Our 13 year old son was not pleased. But it was beautiful!

I’ve been in Canada for 16 years and finally had first beaver sighting in the “wild” (okay, in a Vancouver park but still). Photo kinda grainy.

In the midst of everything else, there’s this in my neck of the woods.

Testing a cross-posting service from Mastodon to Twitter. Will this image come across, with an alt text description on Twitter as well?

Two tabbies! There is a baseboard heater under this window so this is a not-uncommon sight in the winter.

Seriously wondering about having daffodils budding on January 1 in British Columbia, Canada. Sure, we're in Vancouver which is not that cold but still. Unseasonably warm weather/climate change?

My son at a climate rally in downtown Vancouver today, being stark but realistic.

Back home in Vancouver after 2 days on the far east coast of Canada in Newfoundland. I liked St. John’s a lot. Someday would like to see more of the island! View from Signal Hill.

False advertising, St John’s, Newfoundland. No chips were in sight.

My university recently switched its Learning Management System (or Virtual Learning Environment) and we had a party to celebrate successful launch of the new one and decommissioning of the old.

Complete with an ax in the server for the old one.

Kidding...it’s a cake.
