This Neanderthal soundscape

...sounds pretty cool. I hope it will be released on cd or for download. I think it would be fun to reread The Inheritors with it playing in the background.

Hm. I wouldn't call myself a child of the binary generation. I'm more of an aunt. At times, a bit of a Neanderthal. The only blackberry I know is the type that goes into bumbleberry pie. But that's ok. Thanks to that recipe I now know where to go for takeout pie on Granville Island. Not that I'm heading there any time soon.

I don't plan on heading anywhere for a while. We had freezing rain the other day and now we're getting more snow. Got a call from the veterinary clinic in The Pas this morning. They come up to Flin Flon once a week and today's the day. They were supposed to bring along the prescription cat food we ordered. However, the road conditions were bad, the food hadn't arrived and they couldn't wait on it any longer. No trouble. We have enough for now. Where we live, we tend to plan ahead.

Feb 12 - So today I came across blackberry bushes on page 21 of Tim Bowling's The Lost Coast: Salmon, Memory and the Death of Wild Culture.

Ha! Ya, I'm fascinated with the joystick generation, too. The speed of change is exciting and downright scary. Just watching a person who has grown up gaming gives me the shivers. Not that I've watched many. But it makes me realize that my wiring is old. And not up to code.
