Happy Victoria Day!

Bonjour Labrador, how’s it going? Last week we gave our latest issue to retailers and also sent it to our subscribers, your copy should be arriving (if it hasn’t already) soon! We’ve been busy here at Them Days, we started working on our next issue, which is music themed and features an especially interesting article on The Keatniks.

Lately I’ve  had the opportunity to do some editing, it’s hard than you would think and I also had an opportunity to brows around our archives. Whilst searching around I stumbled upon glass lantern slides and found myself enchanted with curiosity, so I decided to research them. It turns out that glass lantern slides which are now obsolete, were once an advanced piece of technology from the mid 1600s to mid 1800s. By putting a light source behind the slides you could project you image on to a screen, this incidentally lead to the invention of the common projector, which can be found anywhere from offices to schools and even in homes.

This past weekend we celebrated Victoria Day, I celebrated by sleeping in and then going out for a greater part of the day.

Enjoy the rest of your week

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

Good morning Labrador, things here at Them Days are at a norm. As usual today, I’m digitizing cassettes and helping out around the office any way I can. We’re getting ready for our Spring Cleaning Event around here. It’s happening  May 25-26, so feel free to donate you Labrador memorabilia. We’ve also been awaiting the arrival of our latest issue, it should be here and ready to be reviewed within the next few days!

Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to have had my French teacher, Emily Lafrancois take me on a hike to Muskrat Falls. The walk was long and treacherous. With every step we took, we sank at least up to our knees in cold, wet, half melted snow. This trek took us about an hour to get to the second lookout point (apparently the better of the three) but in the end it was %100 worth it and walking back was only half as bad because we could walk in our own tracks.
