Summer schedule has officially started for me! I have been busy working all week. Between the strawberry fields, and a roofing project, I have almost put in 30 hrs this week. Ecc. 3:13 reminds me of my position right now. "And also that every man should ... enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God." I thank God for his gift of labor!

This is the bigger choir at the Bible school. This choir did a tour in Europe this year.

This is a picture of Jessica and David and some of the choir they are a part of. We went to hear them last night. They did a very good job. Jessica is in the second row third from the right, and David is in the back row second from the right. The school year is over for them (as it is for me officially, although I have a little bit to finish off) and they are getting home today.

Canada, Straightening out your gun laws, eh?

Today, Stockwell Day, Canada's Public Safety Minister, is expected to announce an amnesty of gun registration for rifles and shotguns! This is at least a step to straighten out. Since 1997 there has been a mandatory registration of all guns. This has had much opposition from the ranchers and farmers in western Canada, and now finally with the Conservatives running a minority Government, there will finally be a try to start changing it. If it manages to make it through, it will not require any long guns to be registered. Handguns will still need to be registered, but this is still moving in the right direction.

(CTV Canada's report on this)

Go Oilers!

I'm not much into sports, but seeing my Mom grew up near Edmonton, I kinda have to cheer them on. The Edmonton Oilers (hockey) are expected to proceed into the semifinals. Right now they are playing the San Jose Sharks, and have won the last three games against them (giving the Oilers a 3-2 lead), the last being a 6-3 win. With Edmonton's defenseman Chris Pronger, and goalie Dwayne Roloson, the Sharks Joe Thornton has been completely neutralized. It'll be interesting to see how things progress. Things really started looking up for the Oilers when they cleaned out the Red Wings, and now they are still pushing on strong. It'll be interesting to see, if, as some have projected, the Oilers will pull off another Stanley Cup!

Update: The Oilers did not pull off another Stanley Cup, they lost the 7th game of the Stanley Cup to the Hurricanes. It was a close series even though the Oilers lost their main goalie (a mainstay on their team) to an injury in the first game.

Here are the puppies together. I will send individual pictures later. If you are interested in buying one, just email me.

UPDATE: Both puppies are sold now.


As of April 19th our animal menagerie has also included 2 mutt puppies. Their mother is my dog (a purebred Chessie named Coffee) and their father is our 3/4 Border Collie. She has proved to be an excelent Mother. As of next week, I plan on starting selling them. If you are interested, just send me an email. I hope to get pics up soon.

It's me again!

Yes, I'm back. School is starting to wind down, but the summer is starting to gain momentum too! I hope to be able to post some as I find or make the time.

I'll give you a quick update on my life.

Other than school, I haven't been up to much. Over the Easter break, I went caving with my siblings, and couple of friends. The weekends have been the highlight of my life, recently, with my oldest brother (Justo) off work, and my sister and brother back from the Bible School they are studying at. The recent return of my brother (Lucas, of Wild Wisconsin) from Ecuador has also been a blessing. Over the early spring we got our house re-sided. It is now a blue color. The winter passed without incident, and I am here safe and sound to welcome in the spring.

Thanks again for bearing with me, through my long inactivity!
