Greetings! I am a 50-something Canadian gal who spends her time between Calgary and New Westminster (where my grandchildren live).
I grew up in northern British Columbia, tramping through the bush and communing with birds and trees. I do miss the quiet and solitude of that kind of life, but for now my husband Tom and I are staying where our business is. It helps pay for my adventures!
Even so, I am a Nature Girl still. You can take the girl out of the country, but, well… you know.
My education is in computers and I have worked downtown, on contract with some of Canada’s major natural gas companies in their web departments, but now I am at home, working with Tom at our Business, New Dawn Manuals Ltd.
One of my main hobbies is researching data on a particular ancient civilization (more to come on that in the Archaeology section). Another is researching my family tree, particularly the Kirkpatrick and Bowe parts of it. And lately I have grown extremely interested in “prepping.”
I love to travel, explore, and examine alternative points of view. So, this blog will be all about these interests and friends and family and good times.
