I’ve been on vacation since July 26th and return back to work August 13, 2008. In the meantime, as I start to go through all of my pictures that I have been taking .. These are some of my favorites from Victoria Beach, Manitoba .. on Lake Winnipeg. We had some great days! We had some rainy days. We had some HOT HOT HOT days! We had some great hot days, but a little windy days. We went on walks, We went on bicycle rides. We went swimming. We boated down past Grand Beach towards the Red River docks. We [More]
For those of you watching Amazing Race 12 (congrats to TK and Rachel) or any of the other Amazing Race shows .. you probably have seen a lot of the modern train and metro transportations seen around the world in the various countries. I thought I would just show you some of these “Modern Metros” in action here in my blog. Enjoy the pictorial!
GOODBYE OLD HEADER LOGO The above picture was captioned as “Electrical Storm over Provencher Bridge in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada” and first displayed in my blog September 20, 1995 in this post: http://1800hart.com/blog/2005/09/electrical-storm-taken-over-provencher-bridge-in-winnipeg/ … the image was FWD’ed to me in a mass email and I thought it was pretty nice, with the electrical storm. Over the years, I tried to determine where the original source was for this picture, but I never did found out (until recently). You see, on August 2, 2005 I was looking for a new logo .. and by November 11, 2005 .. readers voted this [More]
World’s Largest Cargo Ship Get a load of this ship! * 15,000 containers * 207′ beam * Longer than a US Aircraft carrier * Crew size has a complement of 5,000 men and officers * Notice that 207′ beam means it was NOT designed for The Panama or Suez canal .. It is strictly transpacific. * “Cruise speed” 31 knots means the goods arrive 4 days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on a China-to-California run. So this Behemoth is hugely competitive carrying perishable goods. * This ship was built in three, perhaps as many as five sections. The [More]
In Manitoba, you are required to hold two parts for your driver’s license * Part 1 – License Photo Card (renews every 4 years) * Part 2 – Drivers’ License Certificate (renews every year) Well .. this year I had to renew my photo once again .. in 2007. My last photo was taken in 2003, and the one before that 1999 and so on and so on. Maybe one day I will collect them all and put them in a separate gallery. The picture on the top right of this sidebar is really my passport photo taken in the [More]
Psssst! Deloitte & Touche, LLP .. has updated their “Quick Tax Facts 2007” publication. It’s worth printing it out these 2 pages and keeping a copy on your pegboard for quick perusal … I keep a printout of something like this on my pegboard for quick estimates while I am on the phone with clients. For instance, if an individual in Manitoba makes $100,000 per year, the combined taxes would be about $32,270. If two individuals each make $50,000 per year, the combined taxes would be about $12,204 each (or $24,408 total). Just knowing this “on the fly” is helpful [More]
