Victoria, Part IV

We gave our new digital camera a real workout on our last full day on Vancouver Island. Enjoy the photos!


Here's all you need to know: Fifty-five acres of stuff growing. Go!

A deliberate hole cut in the hedge for a peek at the water:

They even put flowers in the food!

Greg even got into the act with the picture-taking! I'm not sure who took what, to be honest.

We had dinner at a gorgeous B&B recommended by a friend.


More flowers in the food! Must be a Vancouver Island thing. (ha)

The day gave me lots of landscaping ideas to go with the decorating ideas I got from the Parliament Buildings and the castle we toured! Now, how to implement them in our tiny apartment?

The gardens and views are breathtaking and your camera takes impressive close ups.

So much beauty! Some of the closeups were kind of Georgia O'Keefish. My poor little garden looks pitiful!

You have such an eye!

Love, Mom

Many engineers develop new products and consider numerous factors during the process. In developing an industrial robot, engineers specify the functional requirements, design and test a robot's components to produce the final design as well as evaluate the overall effectiveness, cost, safety and reliability of the design when developing an industrial robot. Engineers are also needed in the development of many types of products such as computers, chemicals, power plants, helicopters and toys. With so many large companies offering live 24-7 customer service, many cities have telemarketing jobs available. Recently, these companies have even starting allowing employees work from home. With a few conditions, like having a home office that is free from distractions, employees can now do the same job from the comforts of their own homes. The convenience really pays off when employees do not have to drive to work in traffic or bad weather. Statistics from Cranfield School of Management show that the most recent group of MBA students, who graduated in September 2010 have seen their basic salaries rise by 33 per cent on average, which might appear modest. However, 82 per cent of the group in question achieved a complete change of career and job function and 64 per cent changed sector altogether. This puts weighting to my point above. Bingo, instant credibility. He made a living speaking but kept on writing, too. When he realized he could make a living writing, he stopped speaking. Less stress, more free time.
