Karen and an Entlebucher Mountain Dog puppy. So cute.
I spent yesterday afternoon helping Karen Runge set up her new website on WordPress. She breeds Entlebucher puppies.
The Entlebucher is a breed of Swiss Mountain Dog, and of course the puppies are very cute, which adds an extra measure of fun to choosing photos. Karen’s an avid photographer and has a lot of puppy photos to choose from.
She also used to be a programmer, and though her programming skills are decades out of date, she’s got the mental skills that help her learn quickly. It’s a pleasure to see her start to “get it”, because once she does, she’s off like a teenage puppy.

Click to go to Gary Ramey’s website
As MLA for Lunenburg West, Gary Ramey represents the Town of Bridgewater and the western part of Lunenburg County in the Nova Scotia Legislature.
He is often seen with fellow MLA Pam Birdsall, who represents the electoral district of Lunenburg, but contrary to public opinion they are not life partners! They just share adjacent ridings and, incidentally, a webmaster.
Gary is a former professor and plays in a rock band. We’re totally cool here in Nova Scotia!

Wise Owl Joinery website
Timberframe garden structures such as pavilions and pergolas are featured on Wise Owl Joinery’s website, which I updated recently with projects that Richard Cormier has completed in the last year or two.
Beautiful work by a talented craftsman.
Imagine one of these picnic shelters in your backyard. Mmm, sure would look nice in mine.

Just finished a small site for a client providing sales and service of mortise and slotter chains.
Their customers would typically be timber framers who use chain mortisers for cutting mortises in post and beam construction, or chain slotters for cutting slots for the insertion of metal plates in heavy beams, as engineering sometimes requires.
There are other specialty uses for chain mortisers and chain slotters.
The site has a custom header with pictures of chain mortisers in action and repose, and chains can be purchased via a shopping cart.
The client serves mostly the US and Canada, sources mortise chains in Europe and worldwide, and provides sharpening services and the making of some parts.

Upstairs bedroom with apple ladder leading to loft
You can see new photos on Lowden House Farm’s website, sent by the owner.
What a lovely old house, currently available as a vacation rental home in the beautiful Annapolis Valley.

Shaman Nancy Sherwood has finalized plans for a series of workshops in England and Ireland this summer. Her husband David does the cool posters. Nancy’s website is Traveller’s Joy, offering shamanic pilgrimages, tours and workshops.

The client sells a cool Italian woodworking bandsaw and had a dvd-quality video for it, which he wanted to use to replace the YouTube video we had embedded on his site.
Here’s how we did it: We converted the video to the best quality MOV file available using AVS Video Converter, a shareware utility, then imported it into Flash Pro to make the FLV, and set it up on the JW player at Bandsaw for Wood – Dario SV3 MEDIA. Quality is much improved, and people won’t be clicking out of his site. It seems to be streaming fast enough on my high-speed connection at least.
