September update

Sorry that it has been awhile, fairly busy summer overall. To add some details and examples to the video about the lack of support for Bladder Cancer.  I can’t even get Alberta Cancer Foundation, or the Alberta Cancer society, to retweet information about Bladder Cancer awareness, and the fundraising walk on social media. The only explanation people can think of is that the awareness walk doesn’t give funds to either of these entities – well doesn’t that put us in a catch 22 situation, because we don’t have enough visibility to raise any funds… part of the problem with Bladder Cancer being at the bottom of the list.  So, if… Read More

short chat about what I have been learning

So, I have learned a few things about my camera – after I learned about messing up the focus…, had a bit of a snag with lighting, then the furnace started…  Overall, not much new- only took me 3 days to get this video completed… but I realized that my hair was a mess and I say UMMM and AHHH way tooo much.  I even editted a number of them out of it.  I do have some new tricks though. I have another idea that I will try tomorrow….
