  1. Hi Joe, We had our first snow on Labour day (September 1st) and again on Friday, most nights are down to -5c, our first deer were here September 6th, but are not really interested in our petunias! (I think they are hiding as it's hunting season!) As for Fall we are having a beautiful display right now (but the leaves will have to picked up shortly!) last weekend it was 25c and our youngest daughter was married outdoors in an park in Leduc, fantastic colours and still nice and warm, next day it was different! cold wet and windy.
  2. Happy birthday Malcolm, I hope goes well
  3. After reading of the devastation in and around Rothbury and Morpeth in the on-line Sunday Sun we saw some of Morpeth on our news, and it doesn't appear to be over yet, I see more of it on way about Tuesday, I hope you are all safe and dry, our thoughts are with you. BTW we had our first snow last weekend! Vic
  4. Congratulations Tokyo Girl, I hope your recovery continues favourably. The trials and tribulations of having children can sometimes be a great stress but as you get older you see the results of that effort, over the past month or so my children and grand children have been visiting and we have done so many things together, new fences, shed but most of all we have enjoyed being one big family! It's a days drive for them just to get here and it's been in the 30c, and then a day to get home, BTW I hope that wasn't really 3359kg! there has to be a decimal in there somewhere! Vic
  5. In the right location and under strict controls these areas are very valuable to the preservation of birds, animals, fish and all the other little critters! but is that the right area or just bad management? it would be nice to hear from a conservation officer! Because of the fire risk around this town in the past few years they had to create several fire breaks by cutting down lots of the trees that are creating a risk, that has changed the habitat of many of our wildlife, not all bad but nevertheless changed. Vic
  6. Well said Joe, Can we expect some pictures Brian? being that we (here) are in a very small town the Texas smokers here are more community owned, pit roasts are popular, but they take quite some time and effort, but worth it! all this talk has got me going, I'm of to light the BBQ! Vic
  7. Good luck to you and your partner, South Shields... it's almost on the outskirts of Bedlington! Vic
  8. It's amazing where a "new start" may take you, look where I ended! Vic
  9. Sorry to hear this, but good luck with the new start. Vic
  10. Happy birthday Joe, hope you have many many more. Vic.
  11. Happy belated birthday wishes Blank.
  12. Please accept our condolences, our thoughts are with you and your family. I suspect you learned a lot more than you think from him! Vic
  13. Surely the blame must lie with the person or people who picked Sam Allardyce for the job, I'm quite sure Sam didn't change his style or method when he came to Newcastle, and he isn't new to soccer, he was well known! the last manager was unknown, but was given a chance and unfortunately failed. Management appear to be the incompetent ones at NUFC, I hope they are more successful next time as the Geordie fans deserve success, it's been a long time since their Fairs Cup success. Vic
  14. Happy birthday and keep up the good work. Vic
  15. A happy new year to you all, have a safe and healthy 2008. Vic
  16. Merry Christmas everyone, have a healthy, happy and safe new year. (We have occasional light snow, but it's nice out and not so cold.) Joe, my grandson will be in Calgary playing in the Mac's tournament. Vic
  17. Some interesting pictures of Bedlington, old and new. Vic http://www.northumberland-cam.com/bedlington/index.htm
  18. Happy birthday Pete, (and a Merry Christmas) Vic
  19. I hope someone takes you up on your offer, I would welcome the chance to see Bedlington whenever I get the chance, I use several now to see places that I know or have family or friends in the U.K. U.S.A and down-under. Vic
  20. Happy birthday, hope you have many, many more. Vic
  21. Bly--!! but my wife was from Bedlington, we married there, and lived there for a few years, Father-in-law worked at Dr Pit. Vic
  22. I remember Tony, he was underground I was an electrician on surface at that time, I new his father after he married a good friend of ours. (dart players!) He was the mine manager until he retired and also lives in B.C. and regularly visits his daughter across the road from us, I believe they were from Ashington. Grande Cache is about 5 hours west of Edmonton (our local city) you would have passed through Jasper which is only about 2 hours south of us but also in the mountains. Yes it has been cold -30c but it's only -5c today. How did you like it over here? Vic
  23. If it was in the past 31 years I'll know them! G.C. is a small remote town! Vic
  24. Merry Christmas Brian, and to all our forum friends. Vic
