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.

The Year in Review - My Cat Lucy - Spring 2014

 In March 2014 I began looking for an adult cat and ended up purchasing an all white female cat from an Asian lady living in Surrey, a city just south of New Westminster but on the south side of the Fraser River.  Her name is Lucy, named after the previous owner formerly from China.  The photos were taken in Lucy's former home.  I brought her home on the third visit on April 19th.  There is a surprise but I will explain more in a post in the near future.

 She reminds me a lot of a Bombay cat but she's white, not black!  Lucy was said to be an angora cat but I didn't think that was the whole story or that she was a pure-bred (no papers).

 Lucy is a wonderful cat with a beautiful personality.  She settled in after spending two weeks under my bed.  After that, her true nature come out, especially a lottle later!  :-)  - Volker
