Sickness strikes

Don’t mean to whine, but holy maloy did the cold ever get me this year. This is really no surprise considering the weather we’re having here in BC. For the last two weeks it has been, with the occasional one or two hour sunny break, cold and very wet. We are looking forward to a record year of March rainfall and all the flooding that goes with it. Insurances already complain about the many flooding claims they have to deal with.

My stubborn cold, a hectic work schedule (despite the cold I still work to keep up with the demand. I am stubborn too.) and packing our stuff into boxes ready for our house move at the end of this month, have left me little time to write original stuff for Outdoors with Othmar Vohringer.

However, this will soon change as I have a lot of exiting things to report. Beginning with a report on a casual member get-together, that my wife and I attend this afternoon. It has become an annual tradition for members of the HuntingBC forum to meet somewhere in the lower mainland of British Columbia. Stay tuned for more on this gathering.

Another report to look forward to is about the SHS Hunting Chat Forum Member Spring Contest and who the winners are and what fantastic prizes they get. If you’re not a member of that forum yet then you should register and take actively part in a friendly forum dedicated to the promotion of the hunting heritage.

Announcement: Sometime toward the end of this month I will be off-line for about a week (hopefully not longer) as we cancel all cable connections. In our new home we have to register a new connection and then wait until the cable and phone company connects our cable and land phone line to the new house.

Thanks for the kind words about the SHS Hunting Chat Forum and your membership. We try very hard to make this forum stand out from the rest by creating a civil and friendly environment aimed at all hunters of all ages, skill levels and genders.

I hope too it will not take longer than a week, but I also know how phone and cable companies behave when they have the monopoly. Having said that we are very happy with the services Shaw provides and how fast they respond to customer demands.

My cold is getting better. We have something in common. I too use jack and honey and sometimes milk with honey. The truth is that a cold is better cured with home remedies and with lots of good healthy food than by a doctors pumping chemicals into your body.

sorry, can't hear you! It is 80 degrees and with the turkeys gobbling and fish splashing it is hard to hear. Guess I will go work on my tan.
