THE WATER PROJECT ADVENTURE

 
Image result for images of summerland bc in march  These are some of the pictures of Summerand.  Although it is a town of  about 12,000 people it is spread out over a wide area.  This past weekend the Corporation has been doing some water upgrades.   When they first told us about these up grades, they informed us that they would be shutting the water off for four days.  We are a town that has a lot of seniors.  We also have several senior facilities for people that require a lot of care.  There was quite an uproar about not having any water.  The Corporation thought about this and decided to divert some of the agricultural water for domestic use.  Of course this water is not chlorinated so it is not fit to drink but is fine for washing, showers, etc.  We have been under a boil water advisory since last week and will be under it for a week or two to come, until they can get the water system into drinkable condition.
We  decided to make this a holiday, so we rented a motel in neighboring Penticton, for the four days.  We are a tourist area so we have a lot of motels and facilities for tourists!  The motel we rented was right across the road from the lake.  (prime, of course for when the tourists are here in the summer.)
We did some of the touristy things, and went our for lunch and dinner a few times.  If we had been totally away from our area, we would have had to have someone checking the house, and looking after the cat.  As we were only 10 miles away, we went home every day to check on the house and the cat.  It was a nice little break and we have now returned home.  We only have to remember to not drink the water!

March 3rd : THE FACTS OF LIFE

"LIFE IS A SERIES OF NATURAL AND SPONTANEOUS CHANGES.  DON'T RESIST THEM; THAT ONLY CREATES SORROW.  LET REALITY BE REALITY.  LET THINGS FLOW NATURALLY FORWARD IN WHATEVER WAY THEY LIKE."

                                               -----Lao Tzu-----

"WHEN I WAKE UP, I EXPECT THINGS TO BE GOOD.  IF THEY'RE NOT,  THEN I TRY TO SET ABOUT TRYING TO MAKE THEM AS GOOD AS I CAN 'CAUSE I KNOW I'M GONNA  HAVE TO LIVE THAT DAY ANYWAY.  SO WHY NOT TRY TO MAKE THE MOST OF IT IF YOU CAN?  SOME DAYS, THEY PAN OUT A LITTLE BETTER THAN OTHERS, BUT YOU STILL GOTTA ALWAYS JUST TRY."

"TWO THINGS DEFINE YOU:  YOUR PATIENCE WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING AND YOUR ATTITUDE WHEN YOU HAVE EVERYTHING."

                                            -----George Bernard Shaw----- 




 Image result for Images of a dusting of snow  We have awakened to a dusting of snow the last two mornings.  The temperatures have been cool at night, but the day time high has been about 5 degrees C.  It is supposed to warm up for a couple of days, with some rain.  But, we are in  for some cooler weather again.  I guess that says a lot about our March weather.


I believe the old adage is:  comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.

MARCH: A NEW MONTH IS HERE!


"IT WAS ONE OF THOSE MARCH DAYS WHEN THE SUN SHINES HOT AND THE WIND BLOWS COLD:  WHEN IT IS SUMMER IN THE LIGHT,  AND WINTER IN THE SHADE."

                                                      -----Charles Dickens-----



THE ONES THAT DISAPPEARED ARE BACK

 THE ONES THAT DISAPPEARED ARE BACK
THE PHOEBE AND THE CROW
PRECISELY AS IN MARCH IS HEARD
THE CURTNESS OF THE JAY--
BE THIS AN AUTUMN OR A SPRING
MY WISDOM LOSES WAY
ONE SIDE OF ME THE NUTS ARE RIPE
THE OTHER SIDE IS MAY.

      -----Emily Dickinson-----

STUART MCLEAN APRIL 19 1948--FEBRUARY 15 2017

Stuart McLean was an Author and a CBC Radio Personality.  He hosted the program The Vinyl Cafe.  He wrote many award winning books.
My favorite Vinyl Cafe stories were about Morley and Dave.  He had a knack of telling a good story!
He was a well known and beloved Canadian Broadcaster.  We are saddened by his passing.
