    Yuck

    Growing up in Jasper spoiled me - logging? Ouch. I can live without seeing that Having to go to Hinton when we were growing up was bad enough. I HATED going there! Would always try to breathe through my mouth instead of my nose LOL. Couldn't handle living in a stinky mill town. Drove past a clear-cut area once and was shocked at how ugly it was, because I never see it.

    After my last post I saw one of those "BC Moments" on TV - Tofino. Nice. That's the kind of scenery I want to see - the big surf, rugged coastline. Well, I love looking at the ocean so any coastline usually works.

    To pretend we haven't hijacked the thread .... Kokanee works for me, when I actually drink beer. Basically has to be hotter than hell outside and the beer has to be ice cold, like out of the freezer My beverage of choice is usually Kahlua & Baileys though.

    Respect
    Logging, mining, and fishing, run the economy in this province. You need to get out of Victoria, to see that though. Ya a new clear cut doesn't look that nice, but in a couple of years they look not to bad, after about 20 years you cann't even tell. Those mills stink with the smell of MONEY, LOL. Anyways your right we hijacked this thread, pretty good lol. Give this Redneck a LUCKY LAGER.

    What can I say ... I grew up in a naive bubble in the middle of a National Park It's like putting your hands over your ears and going "la la la la la". Or in this case, over my eyes. I still can't get over the way people litter

    Well, I can tell y'all something: Being the full blown westcoast that I am, I sure do miss watching the sun rise OVER the Eastern mountains, and setting over "Japan"....... and I miss just watching the ocean too. Been almost two years now since I was Home.

    And now, back to our regular scheduled programming:

    'Beer Power' From Waste Used In Fuel Cell. Plant Installs Fuel Cell

    POSTED: 12:59 pm EDT May 3, 2007

    CANBERRA, Australia -- Scientists and Australian beer maker Foster's are brewing electricity.

    An experimental fuel cell is being installed at the Foster's brewery near Brisbane, Australia. The 660-gallon cell generates electricity from the reaction of sugar-consuming bacteria to organic brewing waste.

    Researchers say the beer cell will produce about 2 kilowatts of power -- the same as used by the average home. A byproduct is clean water.

    Hey Billy D. can't be wrong!


    When no other beer will do!

    For those reunions with the old college gang...

    Or for just hanging out on the veranda with the wife...

    A quote (as best I can remember, from Oliver Twist, I think) {Scene is a 18th century "daycare" and the Nanny is regarded as one of the best around, because her charges are always quite.} "...(she) added a teaspoon of gin to the milk. No wonder the babes were always so quiet. They were always drunk!" {or something close to that}

    Fred, your last picture reminded me of that passage.

    Hey Dickey

    That Kokanee is a not half bad beer. It is brewed here in B.C. in the Kootanys. It's ok but if You ever get out West, order a Lucky Lager you cann't go wrong.

    Can't say as I have had a Lucky Lager.....Now I'm kinda scared.

    I take home as much as the Kokanee, (as I pronounce it....**** Knee)
    I can only take home 2 cases per person over the border otherwise the guards call me names.
