The first photographs of a new and ominous crack in Greenland’s enormous Petermann glacier were captured by a NASA airborne mission on Friday. NASA’s Operation IceBridge, which has been flying over northwest Greenland for the past several days, took the photos after being provided coordinates by Stef Lhermitte, a professor at Delft University of Technology…

Manitoba Comic Con 2017 April 1-2

11 days late but!!!

Here we go, It was brought to my attention that I had not a single photo on My phone from the last Manitoba Comic Con  show on April 1st and 2nd 2017. So I frantically searched through my phone and my computer to only realize this morning that. Me I  yes the Old Fart had borrowed out my cell phone so that they the nice volunteers at the show could scan the Tickets.

Now finally coming to the fact that Me and the other Geeks on this site have approximately 4 camera’s two video camera’s one very old Tape Camera like you see on the show the Goldberg’s . Oh boy I knew I forgot something that was proof of my Volunteering at a C4Winnipeg then it had dawned on me , that  I Asked a photographer that was doing the show Twyla Twalis  to take a photo of Myself along with  Actor Emma Caulfield of many TV iconic shows IE: Buffy the Vampire Slayer , Once Upon a Time, Fantasy Hospital and oops forgot about a Supergirl appearance.

Emma Caulfield watermark

I like this photo due to the fact that my Glass’s are sort of straight and the photographer had the kindness of hiding my Cane. please note that we had also interrupted Emma’s shopping at a vendors booth in order to get the shot. Also this is for the Wall of fame making it almost a solid wall of photos and Autographs

While I did have a chance to walk the floor of Manitoba Comic Con I got to say a long-lost HELLO to some of the Vendors and Friends.

The new section of the RBC Convention Center has some killer Art Work from Area  Artist and easy access for people with Handicaps making them one of the go to buildings in the area.

Attendance was remarkable being as it was a smaller Event than normal but just as many enthused visitors and CosPlayers were to be seen about . While standing at my post at the entrance to the show  I could not help but notice the rather large amount of the 3 Minute Artists works leaving the building and happy grins on the purchasers . The helpful Event volunteers and Directors were happily engaging patrons with nothing but smiles and directing them to where they wish to go. I say go Show for the team at C4Winnipeg

Until next time or until I hire a person with writing skills to post for Me I say Thank you for Attending and reading this post.



 Well on the 12th of this month Jesslyn and I attended at book reading  of the novel Son of A Trickster and signing by Eden Robinson . A  Author that just happen’s to be from the Same Town I grew up in through my School years untill I left  Kitimat Bc..

Do not be alamerd by the Big huge guy that looks like the cookie monster on Majic brownies. the funny part is tthe croooke glass’s are showing the wrong eye that has the squint. or as the old folks home would say crazy eye.

Our Horror Con 2017

Well once again this was a good show  with a lot of local vendors, and most of them have very good ware’s seeing as how I missed the last show  this was a good beginning to my year. Met up with many of my friends that we have made up with lost time and long-awaited meetings of the Nerd kind.

A couple of new venders with different types of items we picked up a Oculus headset , and an autographed photo with Adrienne Barbeau in another family photo minus my wife and their Mother who stayed home. adrienne-barbeau-2017

and there were many new and improved cosplayer at this show I and my fellow Geek were impressed with the new variations on old theme’s

And of course Winnipeg’s own Kim Brennan artist extraordinaire 20170211_113855

Trudeau: Madame est Monsieur , Ladies and Gentlemen I introduce The President of the United States of America Mr Donald J Trump……… pause for effect

Trump: Thank you Thank you, i have just met with the Prime Minister of Canada, you know Justin Trudeau. And I can tell you I have had a good discussion with him, You know The leader of The Canada’s, Justin Trudeau.  I have brought to his Attention , Justin Trudeau you know Him  he,s a nice guy i have met him , I have talked To him,  Nice guy , seeing as this is the first time i have met with Him.  I told him about the thing called NAFTA , you know about nafta , it means Now America First Try Again . That’s right  N.A.F.T.A what we or I  Donald Trump the President of the United States of America believe I should renegotiate in good Faith(*1) . I the president of USA find that this agreement is a great insult to the American People(*2). we or I have told him you know Mr Pierre  .. I mean Justin Trudeau that I need to get more for America first. …. pause for crickets chirping. you what I ‘ Am trying to tell you Fellow future Americans,, oops sorry Fine Canadians is that we should work together to make America Great again….Pause again for more absolute silence.

French interputer : ahe tabernac Etat’s Unis President cest Putain de cul de chien muet passe-moi cette bouteille de Canadian Club, oh mon dieu j’ai besoin d’un boire dès maintenant.

Spanish interputer : Perro tonto maldito culo. me paso esa botella de Canadian Club oh mi Dios, necesito una bebida ahora.

*1 Faith means what The Donald wants he complains about the high cost to the Donald and not fellow Americans is. As we all know The Donald needs more profit for his children’s Future.. Heck it’s not like he ever paid any tax’s himself that’s for the poor smoo’s who voted him in.

*2 People ; the common folk who will gladly give me money that i will not declare on my imaginary Tax returns because after all I try to pooch the American people as hard and as often as I The Donald can. Yes that right I told the IRS my holding are only 39 million and I  then told “fourbe” oh sorry Forbuzzz that I  The Donald is worth 3 Billion. ha the smucks at the IRS bought it .

disclaimer this is just a prediction not the actual truth but just turn you head slightly to the right and cough. and no there will be no reach around .
