Sunday Sky

Andy | Sunday, November 17, 2019 | Best Blogger Tips
Sunrise is on the way. It may sound strange, but crude oil is really a form of sun energy. About a hundred to two hundred million years ago the formation of oil begins in warm, shallow oceans that were then present on Earth. In these oceans, small animals called zooplankton and plants called phytoplankton died and fell to the floor of the ocean. As they got buried by sediments, they were transformed into shale. As pressure and temperature increase, the shale transformed into oil and, if the temperature was high enough, into natural gas.

Remembrance Day

Andy | Monday, November 11, 2019 | Best Blogger Tips

Every year on November 11, Canadians pause in a moment of silence to honour and remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace. We remember the more than 1,500,000 Canadians who have served throughout our nation’s history and the more than 118,000 who made the ultimate sacrifice.


Some of the 54 Commonwealth member states, such as Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, observe the tradition of Remembrance Day on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

At least once every year I return to the Arva Flour Mill.

The Mill, in Arva, Ontario, on the banks of the Medway Creek, is believed, to be North America’s oldest continuously operating water powered commercial flour mill. Originally established in 1819, unlike most other heritage mills, they have never ceased operations and continue to produce what they believe is: “The Best Flour by a Dam Site!

Eighteen years later... according to Ontario Power the cost to replace the turbine’s older parts is too high, and leaving the turbine in place but not operating would present a safety concern, they made the decision to move forward with dismantling it.
