Broadcast TV viewership is declining steeply. TV viewers are still watching, but they're sitting down in front of the tube with a schedule in hand less and less. More and more they're sitting down in front of their computer and watching programs via iTunes, Netflix or some other internet provider. Or alternatively they're programming their personal video recorder (PVR) and watching their favourite programs when they feel like it.

Shopping online has become almost as common as shopping in a bricks and mortar building. This is a remarkable change that has occurred almost overnight. As little as five years ago, I knew a scant few that shopped online and most of them were tech-savvy people who were pretty comfortable with computers and the Internet. These days, even my dad is buying airline tickets, parts for his quad, you name it, online.

Aries (March 21 – April 19) Answered Prayer

My family was posted to Cold Lake just as I was entering Grade 7. Grade 7 was when we started to get optional classes back then and unfortunately we arrived late enough that most of the popular option classes were full. Stuck for ideas my mom suggested I take typing.

Her advice was valuable as learning to touch type made my career as a computer programmer possible.

Derby Girl of the Month – Crack’Her Jax #7, Avalanche City Roller Girls

This week I've been putting together a bunch of stuff for Wapiti. I needed logos, sponsorship contact information, copies of documents to various agencies from last year. And when I started digging into my hard drive to find everything I discovered only their absence. Fortunately I have a backup. I have an external drive that I backup to daily. Every couple of years I buy a new one, usually about double in size of the last one. I copy the old drive over and then start backing up to the new one. Having an external drive means that it's incredibly easy to substitute a new drive.
