Sun is shining brightly and two large Magpies are at play on our rear patio. They have the ability to simply drive the neighbour's cat crazy. They taunt and tease him and it is hilarious to watch with one's morning coffee. A predicted high of plus 8 today, and as usual with that kind of warmth here, it will be windy.

Partly sunny and a calm +2C here in St.John's at noon. The few cms of snow we had last week are just about gone, and now it's time to start raking up and composting the leaves. We shall not see their likes again until June. I guess I am a spring/summer sort of person. Maybe I should pack up the doxies and head on out to Salt Spring Island.............I hear that Macnutt is looking for qualified guard dogs to protect the compound.

Dave, we shall stop by "The Beaches" on our way to winter with Macnutt on Salt Spring Island. I shall be the person on the doxie dog sled. I hope that you shall have some snow by then to help their pulling. Maybe Mayor Miller could greet us at the TO City Hall and give us a key to the city, or tiny brooms for each of the four doxies.

Westward, HO!!! Mush you doxies, MUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe the "Beaches" will look like this when you arrive:

Warm and cloudy today. 12C and only drops down to about 9C at night. Back to our mediterranean climate.

Dr. G....you are most welcome to drop by and spend a bit of time here on Salt Spring Island. You'll love the winter warmth.

But I should point out that I don't have a "compound". I don't have a gate or any fences that would keep anything other than livestock out (and they're not very good at that, my neighbors Black Angus cows were all over the front field again this morning). I don't even lock my doors...heck, I can't even find the keys to the place.

The doxies are similarly welcome, but they have to get along with my two attack cats and Curley the potbellied pig. They should also be able to deal with lots of deer and raccoons and owls and.....sheep. Lots of sheep.

I live at the edge of a forest so who knows what will show up here any given night.

BTW....weapons are prohibited on my property, so leave any firearms at home.

Macdoc, did you just take that picture????? You are quite the photographer if this is your own picture. Add another aspect to your award -- photographer. Kudos.

Taking a photo of a lightning strike is not as hard as it may seem. I've done it many many times.

You just set your camera up on a tripod and hook up a remote release. Set the shutter on "B" so it stays open the whole time you have the shutter release pressed and then open er up.

Right after the flash, you close the shutter. The lightning acts like a flashbulb and you get the whole bolt burned into your film in stark releif to the night sky.

Works like a charm.
