This website is dedicated to documenting the many translations of Canada's national anthem: O Canada. Canada has two official languages: French and English and O Canada has lyrics in both. Not too many people realize it but the lyrics of the two official versions are not identical and when you think about it, it makes sense as the two languages are different. Each language has takens liberties with phrases and words to best suite the purpose of our anthem: respect and promote the passion of our country.
This site provides reviews of the most popular books and series for teenagers, tweens and children. The reviews are written by Mariah who has read each book that has a review posted. Each review comments on the plot, characters, writing and interest level.
This page documents what I've found to work for me in fighting the common cold. It's an accumulation of over 50 years of my own personal experience on what works and what doesn't work. The best part is that it doesn't cost much but it does require vigilance on your part. Lastly, I am not a doctor and don't hold any medical qualifications - I just have a lot of pracitical experience and a scientific mind.
Sometimes you create a recipe that you must share with the world. This is an instructable on how to cook (poach) fish filets on a BBQ grill that will leave your mouth watering and your friends impressed. In my humble opinion, it's the best damn fish recipe in the world.
You've come to this website because you're being bitten to death by invisible bugs. You've been to countless Doctors, told friends and family and still no one believes you and the cures that they suggest, just don't work. They think that you are crazy and you feel like you are going crazy from all the itching and scratching. It is particularly painful at night and you are having trouble sleeping and resting. Also, you might be spending all of your time and energy, cleaning and fighting the bugs. Don't give up hope as this website will help you find relief or even a cure for what ails you.
This is a new website that I put together based on all of my automotive websites. Finally realized that I had enough misc material that it should go under one site that has a much easier to navigate menu. Enjoy!
This hard to find information is a must have for those restoring an older vehicle as it shows how the parts go together and what the name and part numbers are. Invaluable information when you are missing parts or have taken something apart years ago and can't remember how it went back together. The OEM part numbers are great for verifying that NOS part is indeed the part that you need.
This website has hundreds of pictures of American Automobiles spanning from 1946 to 1953. They are sorted by year, make and model. If you are having trouble identifying the exact year and model of your 1946 to 1953 American vehicle then you've come to the right place!
This website indentifies steering wheels, horn rings and horn buttons by year, make and model for vehicles produced in North America from 1920 to the early 80s. The information presented may not be totally accurate but as accurate as I could find.
Hood ornaments were styled usually after the most powerful or modern technology of the times or a theme. This can give a clue as to which period the hood ornament dates to. For example:
Have a hood ornament that you don't know what make, model and year it is? Or maybe you need to verify that you have the correct hood ornament for your baby. Then take a gander at these pages as they document hood ornaments spanning from the early 20s to the late 90s.
Buick and Pontiac had some very interesting experimental V8 OHC engines of the 60s, Pontiac made an OHC inline 6 called the Spring 6. Moser built aftermarket DOHC heads for the small block (SBC) Chevy V8. How about stroking a 305 SBC? Or a 400 SBC to 427 CID? And the potential of building a monster 400 CID Ford flathead engine that would give the OHV V8 engines a run for their money.
Information on Honda Civics that the books don't tell you and some myths about engines blowing up when a timing belt snaps and most importantly, how to take the damn crankshaft bolt off!
How to add performance to your Ford's 2.3L engine for dirt cheap. This section looks at anyway possible of coaxing more power out of the Ford 2.3L Lima engine. This section is divided into the following: fuel system, intake system, heads, camshafts, ECU, ignition system, exhaust, cooling system, oil pressure and the high dollar items.
How to build the ultimate small pickup that the Big 3 won't build in North America. Inexpensive, seats 5 adults, reasonable power and stingy on gas. The sad part is that Ford does builds the ultimately 4 door Ranger with a turbo diesel but won't sell it in North America. Truly sad!
You've just started your first semester in an Information Technology program under one of Computer Systems, Software Development, Network Systems or Telecom Systems and you have to take Networking. If you are an networking or telecommunications student then it makes sense as these majors are up to their necks in networking. But why should computer systems and software development have to take them? This page gives you strong reasons why networking is important to all of the IT fields.
NEW INFO: Rev 2.1 is now out. Better organized, corrections and rewritten - still under construction though!
Like the title says, its an introduction to data communications and networking (formerly data communications). Here are just some of the wonderous topics, it covers:
I put up this website PBX in a Flash for Newbies to document the basic procedures needed to install and configure an Asterisk PBX for the non telecommunications person who is interested in having their own private branch exchange. Basic configuration of VOIP phones and PSTN lines are covered.
The main focus of this website is Voice over IP or VoIP for short. This section concentrates on the open source PBX Asterisk and specifically the PBX in a Flash distribution because that's what I'm most familiar with. Asterisk is not the only player in the VoIP world, there are many others open source and commercial PBXs. Voice over IP PBXs belonging to FreePBX, Cisco, 3CX, FreeSwitch and Shortel will be discussed briefly here..
Back in the fall of 1994, I was all hopped up about using the Internet for educational purposes. I put together a website in Dec 1994 that was called Using the Internet for Education. I keep a copy just to show the world that I did something important once (at least I think so...)
This online information book is about using MOSFETs for H bridges. New information (April 2001) describes a better mosfet H bridge. These webpages are dedicated to using MOSFETs (metal-oxide field effect transistors) for controlling DC motors. I used them for controlling a robot.
I've been chronicling the High River Alberta flood of 2013 using my flickr accountttp://tinyurl.com/HighRiver-Flood and the clean-up of my friend Ron's house which had water up to the main floor. A town of 13,000 was devastated by a flash 1 in 100 year flood. The enormity of the damage isn't covered on the media and you don't realize how extensive it is until you are there in person. Global News has a heart-breaking story on Ron's neighbor that is worth watching Cleanup Starts.
Like everyone, I have opinions and some I think are pretty good points. I've been meaning to write a blog for a long time and now's my chance to voice those thoughts that have been locked up in my head for a long while.... Hope that some of my comments stir the pot!
When my daughter was little, I wrote a series of books for her. Totally forgot about them and this is the only one that I could find. Here's the story of Fillipa the Moose, the fire fighting moose!
Here's some songs that I've written over the past 25 years. Some I actually remember the chords to and some I don't. Hopefully you'll be entertained anyways.
I used to have this "Warning: this particular website has major attitude! Expect that lots of unwanted things may happen while viewing." But modern web browsers are smart enough to prevent the multitude of pop-ups from appearing.
Enter if you dare... It puts a new twist on "You can check in anytime you want but you can never leave!"
What to do when you have 8 hours to spare, a working PC and lots of fiber optic cable...
This is a simple How To webpage (dated Dec 2005) that shows you how to configure Autocad Release 11 for DOS on the latest PCs in hi resolution modes (800x600, 1024x768 and 256 colors). Why? Because Autocad Release 11 is unbelievably fast on the latest PCs considering it was made for 386 and 486 machines.
