Winter woes in Calgary
Snow removal stinks in Calgary.

Understanding the gentle giant
Angel's silver collar jingles against her pink dog tag as she kicks up snow. She runs toward the two white and brown shih tzus who have just entered with their owner into the off-leash area down the street from our Beddington house in N.W. Calgary.

I walk through the doors and my senses are instantly bombarded. I see a wall of strings, frets, pickups, and every shape and color of wood imaginable. The aroma of wood-varnish and leather straps fills my nostrils, and then I see it.
