Before he was Billy

Archives are great. Being a pilot myself, I have found something of interest to aviators and aviation buffs.

Here is a scan of Billy Bishop’s attestation document for the Canadian Expeditionary Forces in WWI… Before he was to be known as the flying ace “Billy”…

 

New Community Website

There is a great place I have found to connect. It is so new that there are only a few people on it so far. It’s like Facebook meets Twitter meets WordPress meets Google Docs!

It is designed for Vancouver Island however I’m sure it is okay for others to join in. It is for adults only and you must create an account to get in. Data is not sold and it is self moderating. Be kind and don’t be a troll!

Protecting Tomorrow

A few years ago, a friend who I have collaborated with on numerous projects called me and asked if I could write and voice something for his project. It was to be entered into a contest in Germany for automotive safety systems awareness competition. I agreed, and he sent the completed video with music. It was quite powerful to watch and listen to. I had a bit of a challenge…
I watched it over and over again. And over, and over, again. Taking notes and writing a lit of words that explain emotion. After a couple days, I came up with this. The video won first prize.
