Boxing Day Doe

Here's a doe that was sunning herself in a neighbours' garden today. Click on the image to see the larger version. The houses on the north side of the street quite often get deer stopping in to sun, rest or snack. We are a little more fortunate in that on the south side of the street they don't usually stop to eat or rest. Normally they are just passing through.

Because of our proximity to both Stoney Brook and the north branch of the Thames river, we have deer all year round in our neighbourhood. I think it's cool considering we are a city of 350,000 population.

It's Here

The weather reports are calling it the 'storm of the decade'! The yellow on this image indicates that the snow is falling at the rate of 2 cm/per hour. This is a photo taken of the radar image from the Environment Canada weather webpage The Weather Office.

This is a great place for weather fans! It is full of all sorts of info besides up to the hour reports. You can find it here.

Tim Ray

Tim Ray, the pianoman for Issa's performance at the London Music Club.

Adrienne Pierce

British Columbia's own Adrienne Pierce opened for Issa at the LMC Tuesday evening. It was great music from the start and it just got better as each song was sent our way. If I had to describe the atmosphere, I would call it 'live and intimate'. The Big Hall holds around 200 people. It is just such a great venue to share this kind of talent.

As usual, it was a superb musical evening at the LMC. Hats off to Pete and Jan.

Issa Live @LMC

Issa performed live at the London Music Club Tuesday evening to a sold out crowd. The unique talent performed an evening of all new songs, save for the second encore which featured a past anthem, Calling All Angels.

The lady still sports the fascinating voice that captivates. As always her musical story telling is unparalleled. Proving once again that less is more, Issa was backed by pianoman Tim Ray.
