Well have not done a video for ages BUT here is something quick I threw together for today. just a quick daily check in our recycling bin because tomorrow evening we may goet rainfall and flooding the likes we have not had in like 200 years. City is basically under State of Emergency due to predicted rainfall for tonight and tomorrow : See HERE

 

Kelowna posted May 10, 2017 by KelownaNow Staff State of Emergency: Mayor of Kelowna asks residents to pull together for possible one in 200 year event. Flooding throughout the Central Okanagan has resulted in a number of Evacuation Alerts, Orders and road closures. The City of Kelowna, City of West Kelowna and the Fintry Delta in the Regional District of Central Okanagan declared a state of emergency on Saturday, May 6, 2017 due to flooding from various creeks spilling their banks in the Central Okanagan. With warm temperatures, rising freezing levels and 25-40 mm of rain forecast for Thursday, May 11, 2017 to Sunday May 14, 2017, rising water levels throughout the valley are a real concern.

"Forecasts released on Monday could be predicting a one in 200-year event," said Shaun Reimer, Section Head, Public Safety and Protection. Mayor Colin Basran in the video below has encouraged Kelowna residents to prepare for rising water levels in local creeks and streams and to work together to help friends, family and neighbours during this flooding event."

 

HONESTLY I hope they are wrong, I do not really expect to see floods appearing down our streets, at least I am hoping but who knows? When we first moved here years ago that summer we sustained the worst Fires that summer and thought "Geez is this normal here?" it wasn't really it was just timing. Anyway lights have flickered so there is also chance of power outages (which could be the worst part lol) so let's just hope it does not end up as bad as they suggest.

 

Anyway, with all that said here is my quick silly little video, done mostly just to let my Youtube subscribers know I am at least still alive.  :spot:

 

 

 

 

UPDATE ! Fortunately flooding in my area has not happened and currently it is more sunny than cloudy! Crisis averted! We are out of the danger. Surrounding cities / towns sadly had a much worse time.

Lost unboxing of an Atari computer! I unbox and share some info about it! ;)  Well, not so much lost BUT I had uploaded this 5 years ago on VIMEO and somehow never got around to uploading it to my main Youtube channel (at least I cannot find it) so it would have had little views and I figured about time I share with you guys lol. I literally only stumbled upon it because VIMEO wanted me to update some info so here you go. Lost unboxing of an Atari computer!  :beer:

Opinions on EMULATION - What do YOU use? 

 

Been far to long! My NEW video. Be warned ;) this is a ramble where I veer off on tangents and for those that have been with me for a while it is expected. Be sure to grab a beer / coffee and sit back and listen to my take on the topic of emulation ranging from my history to views on ethics and morality of emulation to thoughts on what I might like to try and finally PLEASE SHARE what you like to emulate and your personal favorite means of emulating. THANK YOU.

Well I had to learn to use a new editing program as I went along BUT other than some auto focus issues and one camera drop   icon_lol.gif 

 

I am quite pleased with the end result.

You should see if your new editing software does "Star wipes".  Because 50% more star wipes will make your video 100% better.

Part of a recent Well's Gray Ltd. trip (Skeena and Inside Passage package) we stopped at the the Historic Town of Barkerville and I decided to check out the Cemetery as it was not on the tour agenda but I took it upon myself to break away from the other tourists and check out this historic Cemetery since I would not get another chance. If I seem somewhat out of breath don't worry I am fine, I was not expecting the hike to be so out of the way and I was rushed since I was on a schedule! Well worth it and I am happy to share with you all.

Meet Reverend Reynard at the Anglican Church and journey with him on a 1 km walking tour to Barkerville’s original cemetery; the final resting place of Barkerville’s famous (and not-so-famous) residents and one of the most interesting historic cemeteries in British Columbia. Many of the headboards have been recently restored, and the tour benefits from up-to-date research.
