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

Belated Merry Christmas to all. Its been business as usual even though there's a holiday. I'm off to work this morning but I thought I would post these photos taken in nearby Queens Park early yesterday (Sunday) afternoon. The children are at play on a hillside in the park, and if you remember from your childhood, you would spend hours outside with it seemed boundless energy. As you can see, we've had quite a bit of snow and more was falling as I was taking these photos. More snow is expected today. Have a safe and pleasant holiday!
