By the time this review is published, many of you will have heard Jerry Auld speak at the opening reception of the Fernie Writers’ Conference, and you will already know what I am about to tell you: Auld is a writer perfectly suited to our little mountain town, and his novel should be on the must-read list of every mountain-sport enthusiast.

July Horoscopes

Aries (March 21 – April 19) Honouring Your True Feelings
Follow and listen to your true feelings. Don’t betray yourself or rationalize that is is acceptable to deny your inner voice. Don’t discount what you know to be true in your heart. Follow your emotions, as they are your inner compass that will steer you home and keep you warm, safe and joyous. If you’re unclear about what you’re feeling, write down your thoughts and feelings in a journal to gain clarity.

Taurus. (April 20 – May 20) New Opportunity

Big Drives. Big Files. Big Problems.

The first hard drive I purchased, way back in the 1980s, held 10 MB . That's about enough space to hold two mp3 music files. Paltry doesn't even begin to describe that size of hard drive. Today it's hard to find a new hard drive that's smaller than 1TB . That's enough space for 200,000 mp3 music files.

What's driving this insane increase in size? Well, more and larger files of course. Today it's not uncommon to have files that are much larger than 1GB on your hard drive. And that brings us to the challenge that this column will address.

Chicken Fun!

chalice_walker.jpg
There were two fatalities in our family this morning. The second and third this week. My father was sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee this morning as I stumbled in. When he told me the news, I asked what he did with the bodies? He said that he buried them... in the compost. Poor chickens.

Yoga for Men by Heather Stephens

The first day of the ski season is usually followed by sore muscles. Even those of us who have trained diligently at the gym to get ready for the winter season often find muscle soreness after day one on the slopes, though usually for a much smaller duration.
