A New Coat Tree …

… or is that coated tree? Not sure, but some of the artists at the nearby arts centre enjoy clothing a tree in lots of colourful winter attire.

One view.
And another view. In this one you can see the tassels hanging from a branch on the right.
Here’s last year’s tree.

Greeting’s from Penticton’s fashionable (and warm!) trees.

What Does the Nose Know?

At present there are a number of public art installations throughout Penticton as part of a rotating exhibition. Below is a picture of one of them.

When I first saw it, I thought the intension was to emphasise fun on the sunny beaches, that sort of thing. However, once I read the signage, I saw that the point was much more serious.

Is Big Brother spying on us? What do you think?

To Spring or not to Spring …

… forward, that is. I find it unbelievably irritating and totally unnecessary. But what is probably a lot more irritating is that although politicians are listening to complaints about their time meddling, it’s only on their terms. Why? Because they want to nail it down to daylight “savings.”

Is it just me or is that totally thoughtless? Daylight “savings”? In December? The sun won’t peek over the horizon until 9 or 10 am. Apparently politicians don’t understand this concept. And summer? Try sending your kids to bed at 2 a.m., especially if you live anywhere northish. Yikes.

I want standard time. All year. Permanent daylight “savings” will feel like we are in the wrong time zone for most of the year and will affect our health. But apparently, daylight “savings” is supposed to be good for late shopping, so I guess that’s the only thing that matters. We’re just supposed to bow down and accept whatever is best for the God of Commercial Consumption.
