Porte Photos:

Celebrate Cyber Monday by buying something on the internet. Most people buy those things they weren’t able to get on Black Friday. I’ll be looking for beach towels. I booked a trip in January to Cuba during the Black Friday sales with the help of my travel agent. I’m just hoping that travel isn’t cancelled due to COVID variants.

Today we also remember the people in Palestine by having International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

After having leftovers for several days my American friends will be celebrating Throw Out Your Leftovers Day. Except for those who were smart enough to package and freeze some of the Thanksgiving Feast. 🙂

The picture used for todays quote is from the train derailment in Strathroy. We woke up on July 19th 2017 to find a major derailment in our backyard.

The subject matter is so much more important than the photographer.

Holidays and Celebrations:


*Tonight is the Full Beaver Moon, but with a snow storm threatening I decided to go an isolated dead end road to try to get some Full Moon pictures last night at moonrise. Unfortunately the clouds got in the way and the moon wasn’t fully visible until darkness had descended.

*The last day of November 2020. A vaccine is on the horizon while numbers for COVID-19 increase rapidly. Because Canada doesn’t make it’s own vaccine, it is predicted that 50% will be vaccinated by September 2021. So keep up the social distancing, wear a mask and stay home if you have even mild symptoms.

*USA remains #1 for number of cases as emergency rooms are now at or exceeding capacity. The Canada/US border remains closed for all none essential travel. Even though COVID insurance can now be purchased the Canadian government is still recommending that people stay home.
