Distressed Sidebar / Curio Cabinets

Here are some Sideboard/ Curio Cabinets that I found in distressed wood on Houzz. I love the fact that these items have a mixture of full cabinets on the bottom for hiding cook books and small kitchen appliances, while also some glass for showing off a bit of a tea cup collection or fancy dinnerware. It is always a struggle …

Alberta Boot

Looking for another pair of favorite Cowboy Boots? I suggest heading over to the Alberta Boot website. I know that further to the traditional cowboy boots they have in stock, they will also make custom boots for you in any shape, size or style. I have two pairs from Alberta Boot and I love them!

Lakota Agriplex- Dawson Creek, B.C.

The Lakota Agriplex in Dawson Creek B.C., established in October 2007, is a 100 x 240 foot equestrian facility that hosts a variety of shows and competitions, as well as offers boarding for 110 horses in the indoor stalls. There are a small amount of bleachers on one side and a run-in for barrels and ropings. They also have a number of turn-out facilities or outdoor stalls on the north-east side of the building. They seemed to be far from capacity on my visit in January, a time when they should be, but that may have something to do with the current downturn in the economy.

Winter is intriguing and mysterious. However, long dark days and nights, snow and fog that will muffle sound and hide your vision and a number of winter-prone health conditions to be vigilant for (hypothermia, frost bite and the common cold), it may well do you in. Any of my “friends” in the North will know exactly what I am talking about. With the popularity of Disney’s ‘Frozen’ movie, it made me wonder where did all the wonderful intrigue and mystery go?

Tim Hus

Tim Hus in all his Alberta glory! Gotta love this guy for all his Albertaness. I have seen him a few times live, once at a Bragg Creek Pub in Alberta on New Year’s Eve; there was so much awesome with a bar room packed of fun loving people and Tim Hus and his lone cello player. The next day however…..probably the …

Lindi Ortega – The Day You Die

Lindi Ortega: Great country music vibe that you just want to have a cold beer with. Or two. She amazes me with her strong unique vocals and life-lived lyrics. A lot of people have said you if like Dolly Parton, then this hipped-up version is sure to impress you.  Dolly Parton she may not be, but likewise, I assure you, …
