Wow no posts since November.  Is the blog dead? Should i shut down slacker.ca. I think it must be facebook.  Oh well I still like the slacker.ca email so I guess i will keep it.

I've decided to stop hosting www.slacker.ca myself so I've pointed the site to my blog on blogger.com.  This means no more pictures on the left side.  I decided that running the extra computer was wasting electricity and I didn't like having the pictures out there on the net cause of all the crazies out there.   I guess I'll have to find somewhere else to host them.

Finally some new pictures from June of Nicholas's graduation.  Going to have to try to take more pictures this summer.  These might be the only pictures of Nicholas in a dress shirt and pants.

Finally got some new pictures up for the month of March.  I decided to switch the album format to one that I can easily create and gives a nice layout.  These are some of the pictures we took in Montreal.  It was a great trip and not just because we left the kids at home.   There were lots of great placed to eat and shopping everywhere.  I don't think I've ever walked so much in my life.

I've decided to switch my slacker mail over to apps for google.  This may cause some headaches like having to add people to my new google + account but I won't have to worry about shutting down my web server and missing mail.  It seems to be quite easy to do, just a few dns settings and bang the power of google behind your email.  I'm already using blogger to post my website blog and perhaps one day I'll move the pictures over to google.

Ever notice how as your kids get older you take fewer pictures.  Seems like January and February went by with very few pictures.  I guess the sun came out for April and we managed to take a bunch in Stanley Park.   We did have a few in January up on the Grouse Snow Shoe Grind. You'll probably notice there are none of me and it ain't cause I was holding the camera.

If you didn't see the picture of the month, here is Nicholas in his IPhone 4 halloween costume.
It turned out far better than I expected. Next year I think i will staple the straps on because the straps kept coming off.

New pics for May,June and July! Yeah I know, it's just hard getting things up on time and I've got to find a new way to post them so everyone out there with an Ipad can see them. I'm going to have to try to arrange to make more "Picture moments" as uncle Victor would say.

It's really been a shitty summer this year so there hasn't been to many pictures and no pool to watch on the webcam. Hopefully we will have a good ski season and get some more cool snowboarding videos.
