The bin on the right gets it right, the important guard clause is the first thing you read. Well done.
All this to say that good design is hard even with something as simple as office recycle bins. And UI/UX design applies even to simple documentation. So hug a designer or tech writer today, their work is hard.

Last week my sister gave birth to two boys, Samuel and Isaiah. So on Sunday Kim and I went up to Edmonton to see them. As you can see they are very cute. I'm not sure which is which. My mom was still having to guess, and I'm quite sure she's seen them every day so far, so I don't feel too bad.

It was ten years ago that we lost Dad to cancer. I miss him. I miss my dad who I grew up with and I miss the man I was just starting to get to know as an adult. Can't help but wonder if he would have gotten back into photography when I did. I shoot Pentax, because he did. I wish he could have seen Sarah grow up into the woman she is. I wish should could have known him as an adult. I miss watching him play crib, he played the odds in a way I could never master. I miss how badly he took it when he lost at Phase 10. "Stupid Game!" I miss people who knew him on meeting me saying, "You must be Roger's boy".

I've done a number of photo shoots in Rosebud over the years and it's always been worth the trip. So please join me in voting Rosebud for Alberta's Cultureville. And if my pictures aren't enough checkout the video on why Rosebud should get your vote. - Peace

It was quite the long weekend. After the Ride to Bragg Creek on Saturday, on Sunday I headed out to Rosebud for the 15 Minutes of Fame music festival. Ten hours of Alberta Talent and one of the friendliest crowds anywhere. Well worth the trip. Took over 1400 pictures, I'll wade through them and post a few to flickr.

Haven't done much ridding since getting back from our BC Vacation. So only manged to do ~250 km in Aug. Not ridding much in the last couple of weeks didn't stop me from doing the ride to Bragg Creek and back with the guys on Saturday. It's an 84 km round trip, with some serious climbs :) Last year it nearly killed me, this year I just felt sore, still feel sore two days latter, but not as bad as last year :) We had great weather, cool enough that we didn't over heat but not cold enough to slow us down. I think that helped a lot. Thanks guys!
