Saturday, January 23, 2010


We stayed at St. Martin
It looks beautiful, but we arrived at 10.00PM and had to go for supper first
back on the bus at 7.30 AM
So basically we saw our bedroom

The hotel was close to this ski-hill

On the bus

A main highway only 2 lanes with a 100km speed limit
Seems pretty high

Robotic Milking

We went to Quebec to see farms with robotic milking systems
Some barns were new this one had a viewing deck

some older and far from ideal
like a 6' alley on the side
we took lots of pictures for Rien & Marc

All of the farms seemed to work
We talked to quite a few happy farmers
The cows seemed calm and happy too

This was the biggest farm, inside this doorway robot 9 & 10

River run

A picture made on our lunch break

We were at church for the day, taking in a marriage course:

Genesis 2: 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

Trish & Ezra came for a visit

Joelle came to Coffee-Break and did her presentation:
Jesus in the Passover
I've heard it 3x and it is very interesting
So many traditions only start to make sense
if you see them in the light of Jesus' life

for instance
The Matzo toss bag, it has 3 compartments.,
they break the middle one (Father, Son, Holy spirit?)
The broken piece is hidden (buried?) and found (resurrected?)
It is then used with the third cup of wine, the cup of redemption.
This is when Jesus said; "this is my body"

Jesus is the bread of life

The cup of redemption

Jesus is our redeemer

We've had way more sun than was in the forecast
just today it had to compete with the clouds.

Ice Flowers

Our big window is losing it's seal. Because of the cold we have flowers of ice in between the double glass

Cold & Windy

I didn't make any new pictures, it's kind of boring today
actually more wind than snow
Good to be inside and enjoy the heat from the furnace
