My Photo Sharing

I have posted a number of times over at my Main Blog site., about the Photo sharing sites that  use.

There are actually 4 sites that I am using now. 2 are less active and I will be concentrating on two. My two favorites are Smugmug and Flickr. Here are the links to my sites:

New email from Jetstream Producers

You may have read the post I put up a couple of months ago regarding the TV show Jetstream on Discovery Canada Channel. I had inquired with the production company about the availabilty of the series on DVD.

Yesterday in my Inbox I got the following note:

Just an update for you that we are releasing the Jetstream DVD Box Set with over 30 minutes of never seen before bonus material at the end of June. We have your email and will contact you with the details once they are finalized.


The Jetstream Production Team


Jetstream was a great show following several Canadian CF-18 Fighter Pilot Trainees through the course.

I am really looking forward to the DVD release!


My Email to Discovery

Following up on my post from yesterday, I sent an email to the email address for information on the site. Today I actually got a reply from them. Is there a DVD in the works???

Are there plans to release Jetstream on DVD in the next little while? This has been an amazing show that my whole family has enjoyed. My 10 year old daughter named one of her stuffed animals Riel after watching.

If there will be a DVD release is there any way of being notified of a release date?

Is another series planned?

The response that I received today!

Thanks so much for writing, and for your kind words about Jetstream. It’s so great to hear about families being able to watch the show together. I’ve forwarded your email to the series producers and directors at Paperny Films, the production company behind the show.

There’s no official word yet on a DVD release, but we’ve had a number of requests, so hopefully it will be in the works. I’d recommend checking back on the Jetstream website — — for updates.

As for related series, Paperny is currently in pre-production on a series called "Battle School" about our ground troops. I don’t have any more information than that at this time, but keep checking back with their website — — for news.

Thanks again for writing, and for watching the show!


Great Series – Jetstream

I have to hand it to Discovery Channel Canada. They put together another amazing reality show! I just caught the end of the last episode of Jetstream, a show that followed Canadian CF18 Fighter Pilot trainees with the 410 Squadron at Cold Lake. I am hoping that Discovery puts this show out on DVD! I would purchase immediately!

Since I was a kid and to this day I love absolutely everything that has to do with fighter planes and the people that fly them.

If you haven’t caught any of the show, I am sure Discovery Canada will be re running it over the next little while, but you can see excerpts and catch ups at or visit the show site at

Even my 10 year old daughter was fascinated by this show. If you liked the movie Top Gun you are sure to love this show!

This is the business end of a Barracuda that joined us on our second stop on a snorkling trip we took on Grand Turk, One of the tour operators was feeding this bad boy (or girl). When this was taken I was about 3 feet away from it. I figure that it was a good four to five feet long. Cools stuff!
