Sunday Nights At The Movies

Just sitting here with my wife watching "Prince Caspian" being played from a 8gig thumb drive plugged into a PS3. We live in amazing times.

I have been listening to a lot of Mary Chapin Carpenter. I used to have a few of her albums a way back. They are timeless tunes that capture the human heart. Harry Chapin (no relation) once said "Music it's been my greatest friend and my fiercest foe. For it can take you so high and it can bring you so low." MCC has the uncanny ability to draw you into the song. have a listen to "Between Here And Gone" or perhaps "Come On Come On" or "John Doe No. 24". We are blessed to have such a talented story teller in our midst. here is her website have a listen your heart will thank you.

Re: The Casio Fiasco

Well after giving up on ever hearing from Casio they returned my calls many days later. The tech told me to send the camera to Ont.. So I packed it up and sent it along. Two days after that I get a call from a less than pleasant fellow who explained to me that they would not fix the camera and do not send it in again. I explained it had already been sent as per the techs instruction. We end the call with me telling the guy to keep the camera as it was no good to me broken. I explain the the camera will be my last purchase from Casio. A funny thing happens after that. I wait until the camera arrives at the Casio depot (tracking Canada Post) and I call them, as usual no one answers and so I send emails over the next 4 weeks again one one answers. Here is the strange part after 61/2 weeks the camera arrives back here fixed with a form letter telling me what a valued customer I am and how Casio stands behind their product. That it has been fixed and enjoy.... Well if that ain't a strange ending. My conclusion... this will be my last Casio purchase

Long Time

Hum funny thing lately. I look at my blog link and just keep on going. I have not posted in a long time. Seems everything has a season. All is well just really busy. Learning lots of new things at the Mission. I have been given the website to revamp and I know nothing about the content management system we use, it's called Joomla. It's been a bit of a learning curve and I am nowhere close to being proficient. Most of my work lately is IT stuff it's keeping me busy.
