A while back I mentioned to Martha that we had many large glass greenhouses here and I told her that I would snap a photo for her when I got down there (there = Delta BC)
I don't know who owns these but they are massive and cover a big area. I know they are gas heated with a central heating system
This is another large complex right across the street. I would imagine this extends our growing season due to our colder temperatures
Most of the greenhouses we have here are on level ground so a photo would not show you much except for the frontage. Now you can see how massive they are and how far back they go. There is a complex on each side of this road
A video is worth a thousand words . . .
Martha, we have lots of these up here. You wouldn't have to work outside anymore . . .
Yesterday I managed to go out for another ride. My gate is not as wide as I wanted it to be but I managed to squeeze my bike out and soon I was heading south and hit the highway. I went here and there, met a few people, talked to a mechanic, ordered some parts and fluid for Nu2Me, my R1200R Beemer and I ended up
meeting a friend, Benny whom I often meet for lunch on Saturdays. I parked my bike and went inside but soon other riders started arriving and he went outside to greet them . He came back inside with a puzzled look and he asked me a strange question
Benny: " Is it February 2014? "
Me: "No, it's February 2013 "
Benny: " No, I mean your decal should be February 2014 "
Me: " what do you mean ? "
We went outside and he pointed to the decal on my V-strom
Me (with a smirk): " See, it's February 2013 "
Benny: " Doesn't that mean February 3rd, 2013 ?
Oh Oh, now I see what he meant. Today was February 16th and my insurance had expired on February 3rd, but somehow I thought it expired sometime during March . . .
Now I'm in deep Doo Doo. Here I was miles from home with expired tags and with no insurance . . . I've been riding all day all over the countryside and now I was stranded with no wheels
Karen has recently been playing "guess the motorcycle" from posted photos. I don't have any neighbours called Ken but I do have this photo and I wonder if any of you know what this is from ?
I hope some of you managed to get a ride in too. We had record temperatures on Saturday. I think it went up to 12°c (54°F). I managed to see a few riders enjoying the day
