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.

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas is fast approaching, so to get you in the mood, here are some lights from St. Paul's Hospital on Burrard Street in Vancouver. These photos are from last year though but they're up again this year as bright and beautiful as ever. My work schedule (and the weather) doesn't allow me to get around as much as the previous year unless the days off and the weather co-operate. Enjoy these images just the same.

Merry Christmas - Joyeux Noel - Frohe Weihnachten - God Jul
However you say it and however you care to celebrate the Holiday Season, have a wonderful, safe Christmas!
