Hi, I’m back. I went away for a while to earn actual money. Well, part of the time I was spending money, as in going on a few little vacations with my family. Harrison Hot Springs was rainy—not much fun in a tent. Revelstoke is much nicer than I remember it being when I went through there 40 years ago. And Tofino—there is simply no place better in the world. I could look out at that ocean forever.
Here’s a page that’s all photos of Tofino: http://www.gotofino.com/tofinophotopages.html
Now that I’m back, I’m going to send you away. But not for long. Just to another blog. A friend of mine just introduced this blog to me. It’s called Copyblogger and, judging by the number of followers this blogger has, chances are very good that you’ve heard of it. Well, the number of followers and also the facts that:
