2013 FIRST First Friday w/...

Last night for the January 4th First Friday, we had the pleasure of hearing WHITE FIRE REED live for the first time. For a 3 piece band, they sure pack a big musical punch.  Performing mostly original material from their CD 'POSITIVE CHANGE', the audience very much appreciated their skill, enthusiasm & professionalism.  A few covers were also done from bands such as The Doors, CCR & a version of a U2 song that was particularly amazing.  Lead singer & bass player Gary was having lots of fun trying out a new toy he got for Christmas.  I am not a techie kind of person, but I think it was a processor that he used to add reverb & other effects at the perfect times. We all look forward to hearing the brothers Johnston along with Kurt Oblak play again soon.  If you haven't seen them yet yourself, you should - or at least pick ...

A Different kind of local...

As reported in Sarnia Observer December 11, 2012 Chris Hadfield, on his third trip to outer space, says he'll have plenty of time to get a winning shot of Sarnia. The Sarnia-born astronaut is heading to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan Dec. 19, one of three astronauts in the Expedition 34/35 crew. The first Canadian to walk in space and the only Canadian aboard the Russian Space Station Mir, Hadfield will be the first Canadian commander at the International Space Station for part of his five-month stay in zero-gravity. He will oversee more than 100 experiments — from gauging balance and blood pressure regulation in space, to studying dark matter. “It's surreal,” said Hadfield, 53, during a conference call from quarantine in Kazakhstan Tuesday. He recalls pretending to fly spaceships with his brother while growing up on a farm in southern Ontario. “When we were supposed to be sleeping we would ...
