Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Invisible technology one step closer

Physics and science in general has long been of interest to me since public school days. Today I received news that Dr. Sébastien Guenneau with Dr Frédéric Zolla and Professor André Nicolet from the University of Marseille in France have proven, using a computer generated model, that objects can appear invisible. It looks like that Klingon technology from the original Star Trek series (remember "cloaking') is one step closer to reality. Read the article at the link below for more information. There will be more in the sciences field from time to time.

An article at reveals that scientists are one more step closer to realising invisible technology [from "Science and technology news"]. A unique computer model designed by a mathematician at the University of Liverpool has shown that it is possible to make objects, such as aeroplanes and submarines, appear invisible at close range.
