The Principle Movie/Documentary Now On DVD/BluRay


You can learn more about The Principle at: http://www.theprinciplemovie.com

When the controversial documentary, “The Principle”, hit theaters it was met with uproar. Starring the most famous physicists in the world such as, Michio Kaku, Max Tegmark, Lawrence Krauss et al, and narrated by Kate Mulgrew, of Star Trek: Voyager, it has recently released on iTunes and Amazon.

Controversy arose because, “The Principle”, shows renowned physicists seemingly suggesting that there is scientific evidence supporting the idea that our Earth just might be in a unique, perhaps even "designed" place in the universe.

Adding to the controversy is that, when some of the famous scientists who are featured in the film, saw it, they released statements stating that they did not know that they were being interviewed for a documentary that tackles the God question.

The documentary goes further. In it, famous MIT physicist, Max Tegmark describes his analysis of the W Map (the map of the entire universe) in which he seems to suggest that the universe, from its beginning, appears to have been strangely ordered, suggesting that such a finding should not be possible in a universe that was not designed.

Because of the seeming impossibility of Tegmark's findings, he with tongue-and-cheek, calls the W Map discovery, "The Axis of Evil." Tegmark does not go so far as to say that there is a creator or designer, rather, that his findings seem to be inexplicable, at least for now.

Trace Unknown by Barbara Ann Campbell


Trace Unknown 

by Barbara Ann Campbell

Bigfoot, an unknown species of animal, would be able to survive in the same environment, living off the same food sources as known species in the target area.

The animal's activities would bare striking resemblance to the grizzly bear, black bear, cougar, wolves, ungulates and porcupine. Perhaps that would explain some of how it has managed to have eluded our attention.

Inside, Barb has compiled an extensive profile on Bigfoot and shares her discoveries of the first year of operations. This book is reference material for the serious Bigfoot field researcher. Campbell is a former UFO and paranormal researcher.

She has also served as a forensic investigator of unexplained animal deaths (UAD), aka animal mutilation cases, and has appeared on Cattle Killers episode of MonsterQuest.

Ice Jam On The Bulkley River Smithers British Columbia (Pictures)


Above Photo: Ice jam raise's the water in the Bulkley River at Smithers, British Columbia.

An ice jam has threaten to flood homes that are in low lying areas next to the Bulkley river in Smithers, British Columbia in the early part of January 2016. People were placed on high alert as the ice and water backed up onto peoples property.

As chunks of ice started building up on the river, this caused the water to back up, flooding some basements and property.

There were approximately 16 or so homeowners that were placed on evacuation notice if the river continued to rise. There was some flooding on some the roads.

In Spring runoff, many of these low lying areas do flood, and flooding has been seen in years past from ice jams on the Bulkley.

Also residents are being advised to stay away from the river as it is extremely dangerous.

1918 Railway Station Smithers British Columbia (8 - Pictures)

It is funny, know matter how many times I visit communities throughout northern British Columbia, I always find something new to film. I moved from Surrey, B.C. in 1981 to where I reside now, which is in small town Houston.

There were a few challenges to over come, like setting up a home in the dead of winter with temperatures dropping into the minus thirty's.

Houston British Columbia Winner Of The 2016 SledTown ShowDown


Above Photo: This was taken from the Walcott Forest Services road outside Houston, British Columbia of the Telkwa mountain range where snowmobiling is "King".

(The photo I used here was taken from the Walcott Forest Services road outside Houston, British Columbia of the Telkwa mountain range where snowmobiling is king)

Actually there were two winners, Houston, British Columbia and Yorkton, Saskatchewan. From what I heard, people from across the western Canadian provinces were voting like mad when a major glitch occurred on the SnoRiders system. 

Some folks were not able to vote, while others saw a high number of votes which was rather unusual according to SnoRiders.

SnoRiders apologized for the problem and then to be fair, named both Houston and Yorkton winners of the 2016 SledTown ShowDown trophy. 

SnoRiders does a wonderful job in promoting snowmobiling throughout the western provinces and they deserve a lot of credit for doing so. Also it is great to see so many take part in the voting.

From the numbers I saw, the people who participated in the voting for Houston, B.C. sure showed amazing community spirit. There were a total of 64 communities which took part in the SledTown ShowDown faceoff. 

A huge congratulations goes out to Houston, British Columbia and Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

I hope to see you and yours enjoying our snowy part of the world here in Houston, B.C.

Steelhead And Winter Ice Fishing In And Around Houston British Columbia (12 Pictures)


Above Photo: Fulton river which flows into Babine Lake, British Columbia's longest natural lake at Granisle, B.C.. Picture was taken on New Year's Day, January 1, 2016.

Houston, British Columbia is known around the world for a good number of things, such as Canada’s largest fly fishing rod and one of two grizzly bears that were killing cattle around Hungry Hill. 

Also we have the “beautiful” Steelhead Park which runs along Highway 16 through Houston. 

In the park there is the Steelhead fountain where you can sit peacefully enjoying the day.

Another popular attraction is the Wolf Totem Pole which is in the park.

In summer there are numerous beds of blooming flowers of different types and well manicured grass. The park is truly Houston’s well known gem.
