Chuckwagon Races at the Calgary Stampede
Posted On 07/09/2014 21:55:40 by yourchoice
Today I thought I would take you to the Rangeland Derby at the calgary Stampede, better known as the Chuckwagon Races. It is still my favorite event, even though there are some who want it to be banned. (They are the ones who don't know what they are talking about!) My interest started when I was very young because a well-known Alberta family in Chuckwagon racing were neighbors of my parents when we lived on the farm. I think it is now the fourth generation who have been racing at the calgary St... Read More

Yesterday was the first day of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. I had set my alarm clock so that I would wake up in time for the CBC coverage of the Opening Ceremony. We have been looking forward to this event for a long time … with a bit of nostalgia mixed in too. Our Canadian city, Calgary, Alberta, hosted the Winter Olympics in 1988 and the whole city adopted the event as our very own greeting to the world. I wonder what the long-term effect will be for Russia. Will it be... Read More

Just when we thought the city was getting a grip on the flooding disaster, they have a new challenge. In the middle of the night, a railroad bridge over the Bow River in the city buckled under the weight of a passing train. Six tanker cars, filled with petroleum products, are on the bridge, but not in the water. At the moment, the cars are cabled together and anchored to train engines on both ends of the bridge, and the tanker cars are being pumped out. Here is a link to pictures and... Read More

Calgary Flooding ... Update!

Several days ago, I posted a blog about the flooding in our city. Today, I found this YouTube video as an update.  Calgary Strong Song One more thing ... Have you heard of the calgary Exhibition and Stampede, the world famous rodeo and exhibition that takes over our city for 10 days in July? It is supposed to start in two weeks, but with the flooding, everyone was expecting to hear that it would be cancelled. Today, it was announced that it will start on time "HELL OR HIGH WATER"!...
