This blog may seem a little unfocused, but then so am I - I'm a writer, photographer, trombonist, online gamer, grandfather, and promoter of graffiti as both an art form and a community change agent.

We had a nice day yesterday - maybe the last until spring. It was 20C in the sun. We trimmed the perennials and raked up the leaves in the garden - ready for snow now. Not that there is any in the forecast for here, but it will come within a week or so. Along with freezing rain. We have a new LRT system that manages to break down almost every day, in good weather. Commuters will not be happy. Me? I work from home and can walk pretty well anywhere I need to be.
Oh,and we had an election.
FYI - I'll be posting my stories on my Mike Young blog, from now on. Here's a link to this week's story.
Well, the last while, when not doing techie stuff, I've been following the election. Not the US 4 year long process, the Canadian 40 day campaign. The two front runners - the incumbent Liberal and challenging Conservative - started off at agout 34% each and have stayed neck in neck most of the campaign. We've had scandals and slip-ups, several leader's debates, and promises and accusations. Not a lot of difference between the two, so nobody seems that excited about the choice. Meaning one of the two will form a minority government, with less that the majority of overall seats.
