Thunder Bay - Monday

Thunder Bay – Monday

Well, at least he is riding on the street…where he belongs but I doubt if I would be riding a bike in these conditions. Injured workers demonstration had not happened yet. Something I noticed. I would think that the posts would be placed in the same location on each side of the street.  Mirror image […]

Thunder Bay – A Waterfront Mystery

Today, I had an epiphany. Why did I not notice this before? It had to do with the $1 million piece of public art located on our waterfront.  It is divided into two halves.  One half is located at the end of Pier 1.  The other half is located at the end of Pier 3.  […]

Thunder Bay – Sunday

The Wilson Street sump caused ice hazard continues to grow. Bethel Lutheran Church…. I wonder how much ice will be allowed to accumulate before someone does something about it?  You would think that the church administers and the congregation would notice but apparently not.  Maybe they are waiting for a message from God? Pigeon tracks […]

Thunder Bay – Buying Our Votes With Our Own Money

FedNor cash to contribute to intricate restoration process of carousels The 28 wooden horses of the carousel at Chippewa Park have probably been ridden for millions of miles, said Donna Gilhooly, co-chair of the carousel restoration committee.

Fire trucks at the DSSAB apartment complex at the corner of Cumberland and Water streets…again.  Its a short trip from the station.  Two blocks. Work on the […]

Thunder Bay – Saturday

Noticed something flying high over the city.  The area just below Hillcrest Park.  I could tell by the way its wings moved that it was not a crow or gull.  Following are a few image taken with my camera at its maximum zoom.  An eight times zoom or 400mm. I cropped the image and low […]

The World – 1,000 Investors Control Almost Half Of The BitCoin Market

Something to be aware of if you are considering entering the crypto-currency arena.  There is a good chance that the value of those currencies is being manipulated by a small group of traders whose plans are to make as much money as possible…any way they can. Buy low, sell high.  They create a frenzied demand […]

Thunder Bay - Thursday

Not much new going on. I took some photos.   The grain cars look cold. Yup…city crews plow the sidewalk and then the railway snow clearing operation blocks that sidewalk Someone did some off roading through the swale Why? Interesting sunlight MV Federal Danube Waterfront trails cleared.  No complaints about the waterfront trails so far.  Icy […]

Thunder Bay - Wednesday

Thunder Bay – Wednesday

The day after..lets have a look. Not a fan of snowplows piling snow on sidewalks and trails.  Why the boat launch area is part of the snow clearing operation is confusing.  No boats are going to be launched for a long time. Shoe prints in the snow.  In the ice actually. Snow sticking to the […]
