Today is Alberta's Centennial. It is 100 years since we joined Confederation. Prior to that, we were part of the Northwest Territories. I remember seeing old letters to my great-grandparents with N.W.T. as part of the address. There were big celebrations this afternoon at Olympic Plaza, but after work I was too tired to go. A century doesn't seem long; I've lived here more than half that time.

I became a great-uncle for the 5th time on Tuesday. My niece had her 5th child, a 7 lb. 4 oz. girl named Samantha Jo. My other niece and nephews have some serious catching up to do!
