My mortal enemy: Gravity

So, as many of you already know, I wiped out snowboarding and broke my collarbone.  This did not hurt as much as you would think.  I liken it to being hit with a baseball bat once, very very hard:  it immediately feels better NOT to be hit with a baseball bat.    The initial x-ray did not look very good, with the clavicle broken in two places, but I’m told that they heal up.  My next x-ray will be next week and I’m hoping that the doctor will tell me that the healing is going well.  If not, I could be in line for an operation.  So, I’ve been uncomfortable and increasingly cranky over the last 5 weeks, pecking at my keyboard like a half-wit crow.

Luckily, it was my left shoulder so I can still flip channels between hockey games and reruns of Friends to pass the time.

Special thanks to Andrea who has given me a ride to and from work for the past 5 weeks, I really appreciate it.

Website Re-Design: HikingTrailsBooks.com

We have just launched the new design for the Vancouver Island Trails Information Society, which is a non-profit society dedicated to providing information to the public about parks and trails on Vancouver Island since 1972. The look of their earlier website was very out-dated and they came to us wanting to bring their website presence up to 2010 standards. As well as an update to the design of the website, we also upgraded the back-end of the website allowing them to more easily update all the content and photos on their website.
