Sunset Beach Barge

A highly rated Vancouver vacation destination!

Tomorrow might be its last day:

While it could be possible to push it off using airbags and heavy equipment, the plan it to wait for a so-called king tide to refloat it and try again with the tugs.

It’s believed a tide that is just five to 10 centimetres higher than 4.5 metres would allow the barge to easily slip back into the water. And federal officials are forecasting an exceptionally high tide of five metres on Dec. 6.

A company representative from Richmond-based Sentry Marine Towing Ltd., which is involved, said that seems to be the best chance to pull the barge off. He declined to give his name, saying several government agencies are working on the operation. (Vancouver Sun)

The “king tide” arrives tomorrow morning at around 8. I will be there with bells on!

New domains

This morning the registrar Internic.ca invited me to purchase the URL basil.sucks at a “discount.”

This seems like a lot. Here’s the pitch:

Whether you want to safeguard your brand, provide your audience with a savvy way to share feedback, or execute creative marketing campaigns, .SUCKS stands out from the rest as a bold and brave domain.

I used to gobble up domain names but decided to pass on this one. I passed on this one as well:

I did get basil.photo and basil.help, though. Not too expensive! My ideas are already percolating.

(If I decide to write that memoir, no doubt I will very much regret not having basil.sucks!)

The abandoned memoir

From six years ago.

Jackey was the youngest of her siblings, all of whom welcomed me with love and friendliness to their homes and into their lives. She was surpassingly sharp, and almost never said a common thing. Her Christmas Eve parties showed me what life should be.
