    I'm sure there's more than just the Stampede happening in Alberta right now. Let me think. I believe I heard that two UCP members were elected in by-elections yesterday. That is Jason Kenny's party. He is predicted to be the next premiere of Alberta. Pray for the province.

    Sadly, a little 2 year old boy disappeared by a river last Friday near Grande Prairie. They found his body 200+ kms away in Peace River. He had floated from the Wapiti to the Smoky River to the Peace River. It was a sad but expected end of a search for the little guy. Sounds like his parents took their eyes off him for a second and he was gone. So tragic.

    There are some pretty nasty weather alerts for today!!

    And my friend & her Cross Canada cycling group have arrived in Alberta - that should be making the news!! I think they were in Canmore last night & heading to Calgary today - day off on Sunday to take in some of the Stampede activities.

    I was in Alberta for a family reunion just last week in the Wainwright area. Beautiful country there.

    Ribfest in this northern Alberta city today. Get your bibs out and join us. We plan to stop by.

    I believe K Days are over in Edmonton so there's no need to miss the ribs.

    I stand corrected. Russell Bowers just told me K Days is still on this weekend.

    Best medicine ...between the ears ... under the hat protected from being out there because fear of intelligence without care or Shaman!

    And it is suspected that tryptamine affects moods and thoughts ... although trypophobia ... is not considered in DSM5 as it is related to unknown MOAs ... thus disturbing neuroscientists about what they don;t know about gaps and a'gape ... emotions are justly unknown ... you don't know what sets these characters off ... lack of reason?

    Some go as far as to say ultimately ... there is no reason ... and there we are flush! If short of everything else ... give it a poke ... Trump follows that line ... could it be allegory ... as incarnate being something else in meaning? Meaning something alternate ... due to lack of prior understanding ... leaving us in a stew or other stir ... I see a missal in a caldron ... mission Eire?

    Today is the last day for the Bear Creek Folk Festival. Best music festival in Alberta if you can make it out.
