August 16th, 2019 became for me a pivotal day in my life experience. It appeared innocent until evening when I decided to see if I could find some people I knew well from my days in the Peace Country whenI lived in Fort St. John, BC. These formative years to which I am speaking were from 1975 to 1985, a period of which I was hired by company head Jack Banks as the sole pilot of a Cessna 206 for Baltic Drilling. My research led me to see if I could find any of them and see where they are today. To my dismay, I indeed did find them, but not the way I anticipated. Many of them are listed in the obituary columns in the regional newspaper! A two hour search of names and there were more than a dozen of them listed.Read More
I knew Wendell firstly the late 1960's when he came into Mike Hackman Aircraft Sales at Edmonton Municipal Airport. I was only 14 years old at the time. He had just come back from Saudi Arabia as a consultant. What struck me was his strong presence, vitality great humour and a special (and expensive) puzzle ring he had brought back. That first impression stayed with me for years to come. I was reintroduced to Wendell in the early 1980'sRead More

I have studied anthroposophical spiritual science for many years. The work of Dr. Rudolf Steiner spans over one hundred years ago, which contains well over 6000 lectures (which were later transformed into written articles made available to the general public) with numerous reference books which can keep an aspiring student like myself focused for many years to integrate his spiritual teachings into my life, then into the community to be shared with others. Hence, here we are today to share these spiritual facts with everyone, articulated into common day language to make it understandable.Read More
My love of airplanes started in the 50’s and 60’s growing up close to the Edmonton Industrial Airport (CYXD). Fleet Canucks on training flights flew directly over our house as they made the first initial right turn off runway 16 westbound for the practice area. Looking up from my backyard I learned to know every aircraft by registration, color, type and unique engine sound. The airport, being only 8 blocks away, was freedom for a young guy to smell the sweet odor of aviation fuel and dripping oil. To walk freely about the entire airport to look at and touch every airplane in site with no restrictions or fencing to withhold the imagination felt so natural. Type and size did not matter. The grass area was packed with every type imaginable.Read More
In our life’s choosings, it is fascinating to note how many times decisions are based on fear vs. faith. I know many points along the road which have proved this in my own life. Yet there are also times when the choice was a firm ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ based on a ‘gut feeling’- knowing what was ‘the right thing to do. A deeper drive based on faith regardless of outcome. Did it always work out? No, but most times the ‘right thing’ opened new experiences that created new directions and people in my life which I would not have experienced otherwise- new growth, new opportunities. Would I take back any of my experiences? Not on your life!Read More
A recent tv show I watched profiled what I consider to bee the demise of one of the true wonders of the natural world...the honey bee. The honey bee pollinates just about every type of plant, vegetable and fruit in the fields of mankind. We do not only depend on the bee for honey. We need the honey bee to do the natural thing.. to seed the fields of foods in just about every food group available to man!Read More
