In the year 2004 we moved from our farm to the town of Bruderheim, Alberta, 8.5 miles from the location of our farm.  If you are interested, a few items of information about Bruderheim are available here.

Monument to Alberta feminist pioneers, Monument to Alberta feminist pioneers,  Edmonton Centennial Library,2000.  In case you can't figure out what it represents, it depicts a woman with her head tossed back, her arms up and hands behind the back of her head.  I've got no idea what that signifies.  The memorial was donated by the Edmonton Journal and is located at the SW corner of the Edmonton Main Library.  The inscription of the bronze plaque on the base: Bronce plaque ate the bottom of munument of Alberta feminist pioneers — It is obvious why men, and especially fathers, don't receive too much sympathy from the Edmonton Journal.  However, let's never forget that these feminists were privileged women from the upper class and the upper levels of the middle class in Canadian society and achieved what they did with the full and active support by their fathers, their brothers, their husbands and by the majority of Canadian politicians.  At the very least one of the women being honoured on the monument neglected her children in the pursuit of her ideological dreams, but that is for a different story.
   The work that made Alberta and Canada what it is and that enabled these women to be able to gain their goals was done by MEN.  Everything that these women used to promote their message: paper, telecommunications, roads, railroads, ships, typewriters, pens, cars, trains, their houses and whatever else you can imagine — including their kitchen sinks — was invented, made and constructed by men.  Even the food that these women ate was grown and paid for by men.
   Of course, it cannot be denied that all the men who granted feminists their wishes and demands had mothers who had born them and gave them life, but so did the feminists, and the feminists had and still have the additional advantage that almost without exception (at least if they are women — a lot of feminists are male) all of them were and are potential mothers.  That is even though they denigrate motherhood today and even did then.  No man can resist a member of his very own mother's sex, unless she becomes his mortal enemy.  Even then extremely few men can put up effective resistance against women who abuse or mistreat them, even and especially not if they once were their very own wives and mothers of their children.  For any man to fight back against a woman is against the very foundation of human nature, no matter how unreasonable a woman may be and what her demands are or the nature of her aggression.

We often have beautiful colours in the Fall.  Usually that lasts until the end of September or early October.  That's when sometimes the first really severe frosts hit.  It was lucky that we went for a little sight-seeing tour of our neighbourhood on September 30, 2000, because three days later the temperature went down to -10C.  Have a look at what things are like in Alberta at that time of year.  Those photographs comprise 798 kB of data.  If you want to display the associated maps as well, then there'll be another 206 kB of data.
