Sailor's Friend

Andy | Monday, July 15, 2019 | Best Blogger Tips
Built to mark or alert sailors about dangerous coastlines, the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (see location link below) constructed in 1827 by Jeremiah Berry. The original tower didn’t last long due to poor craftsmanship. A new tower was commissioned by Berry’s nephew, Joseph. By 1856, a new lantern and keeper’s quarters were built by the Durham family, who resided on Pemaquid Point. Presently, you can visit the keeper's house, which now hosts a Fishermen's Museum.

Washed Ashore

Andy | Saturday, July 06, 2019 | Best Blogger Tips
Refus The Trigger Fish made of plastic garbage found in the ocean as part of the Washed Ashore art exhibit and environmental movement showcased at the Toronto Zoo.

Washed Ashore is a non-profit organization whose mission is to use the arts to educate a global audience about plastic pollution in oceans and waterways and to spark positive changes in consumer habits.

Founder and Director, Angela Haseltine Pozzi, began this project in 2010 with the help of interns, apprentices, a small dedicated staff and thousands of community volunteers. Together, under Angela’s direction, they began creating artwork made completely from garbage collected from beaches.

Now, over 18 tons of marine debris has been removed from beaches and processed into 60 works of art which travel the country to raise awareness and teach about the tragedy facing sea life in the world’s oceans.

Every piece of plastic was once purchased by someone, discarded, became waterborne, and landed on a beach where someone else picked it up and made a difference. Please Remember Every Action Counts!

O Canada... Happy Birthday

Andy | Monday, July 01, 2019 | Best Blogger Tips
Canada Day has been called a few names in the past. It used to be known as Dominion Day, the First of July, Confederation Day and July the First. Canada wasn't REALLY "born" on July 1st, but the holiday celebrates the events that took place on this day. On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. This act stated that Canada would become an "independent dominion" (territory) of England, which is why Canada Day was originally called Dominion Day. In 1982, Dominion Day changed to Canada Day after a vote in Parliament. Not everyone was happy about this change. Some people felt that a 115-year-old part of Canadian heritage was lost. But, the new name stuck and every July 1, Canadians celebrate Canada Day as a national holiday.

I have a curiosity about old cemeteries. This grave site is located in the Bethel Church Burial Ground. The church was torn down in 1902. This headstone, along with five others, is all that remains of those still standing. It is so weather worn that the only wording left visible is "Dec. 24, 1895 Age 37 Years".

Canada At D-Day

The Holy Roller, a U.S. built Sherman M4 tank that was manned in the battle by members of the 1st Hussars, has sat in London Ontario’s Victoria Park since 1950 when it was dedicated to the regiment. The "Holy Roller" landed on Juno Beach with the 1st Hussars regiment in Normandy roughly 45 minutes after the first assault troops went in. Its gun was damaged two times during the war and was one of only two Canadian tanks to survive the conflict.

Introduced in the 1990's in large urban cities pop-up shops are temporary retail spaces that sell merchandise of any kind. Term: Typically 3 days to 3 months. Location: High foot traffic areas such as city centers, malls, and busy streets. Price: Much lower than a traditional store, typically paid upfront... and long lineups waiting to get in.
