Turning off for a while

I'm in another depressive low cycle with regard to the blog. Normally, every morning I go through a lot of special search terms on the news to find special articles. Now I'm finding nothing, or I'm uninspired.

On the nuclear front, I think things will get nasty, so that means I'll run, since I'm a coward. They will continue the waste thing, and the new nuclear without spending a cent on geology, and just running on phony soundbites ("Meets our expectations"). The 'panels' will be stuffed with toadies. They will use ancient arguments for the seismic issue. The CSA standards will be ridiculous.

So, I'm not combing the news from now on. Perhaps we'll have a nice big earthquake in our area, and I'll wake from the dead...

Do have a nice time fishing. Did you know I found a link to the "field guide to fish" for Ontario? It's a PDF, of a booklet, unfortunately.
There's a link from here: Identifying Ontario Sport Fish.

IF you're not happy with the way the CSA standards are going, why not become a member of the committees and see if you can fix them?

Actually, they are only for the independently wealthy, or those who get a lot of money out of having standards (company sponsored).

Hi Harold,

As you know, I went through depression 31 years ago and was put on drugs. The depression never came back (ok I had a brief and scary flash of mania once after that, but who cares :-)). I've now been off all drugs for more than a year and a half, and I'm feeling great (No, not *that* great :-)). With all the wisdom that I've gained, I'm going to tell you the answer to your problems... Forget about everything, just read your Dilbert book again, and you'll be fine. I recently started to read it, and I honestly believe you are even funnier than Dilbert in the way you
talk about things. I'm serious. Keep up the good work! I really enjoy reading your stuff.

I learned all my Dilbertism from work, which was way 'beyond Dilbert', and totally unbelievable to any normal person.

Cheer up and Seismologize.

Cool broadband internet seismology related application

Or View cool lectures from the Perimeter Institute.

They have the slides as an extra window that you can zoom to see the details. A wide variety of topics. I think it's cool.
