I'm using to make this site and to be honest, I don't recommend it. Sometimes I can't log in, right now it's being a brat with this blog entry. It wont put the text and photos where I want it so lets just see what it does now.


Infront of the canada revenue agency in winnipeg there is a pond with two small islands in the middle. The geese like to lay there eggs here, the island provides them a safe place to nest. I discovered the geese nesting ...

I went for a 3 hour hike on Friday along the Siene River. It was a lovely day, it's finally started to feel like spring. I brought my nice camera with me so I could attempt to take some good shots. It's a bit of double edge sword bringing the camera. It takes much nicer photos but it hinders the ability to explore (can't climb around too much with a heavy, expensive piece of equipment around my neck) so it did slow me down in places. However it is worth it to bring.

Last Friday there was a garage sale near my workplace. I work in a day care in a school and the band room was having a garage sale as a fundraiser. There was a lot of great deals there. I brought the day care kids and gave them a quarter each so they could buy themselves each a toy. Some of them got some great stuff for a quater because the band teacher wanted to make them happy. One boy got a Bop-it for 25 cents, that was awesome.

For myself I got a bag full of tupperware for $2, a swe...
