Welcome to Littleboo Network News

Well, July was a very interesting month in the Okanagan. From heat waves to wildfires to high winds to heavy downpours of rain and hail and flooding to lightning. In the end I still hope I never have to move away from this area I love. The fire in West Kelowna came up so fast on July 18 it really caught everyone by surprise. For those who lived in the area during the devastation of the 2003 fires, these 2009 fires brought back memories. I was not living in Kelowna in 2003. I was living in Blind Bay on Shuswap Lake and Brenden was still with us. We were one mountain range away from the fires in Barrier area and the smoky sunsets were spectacular but the damage from the fire was incredible. There are photos of the fire in 2003 and 2009 at My Photo Site. There is also a video of the awesome amount of rain we finally got on July 25, 2009. Other photos and links are at, Ken's Space and Bad Order Blog

Talk of a Bateman Family Reunion in British Columbia


This will be a reunion not to miss. There are so many relatives whom I have never met, and some I have but have not seen for thirty years. I have offered my support to have this happen and will contribute all I can to see it so. Check out My Facebook to keep up to date and make contacts. If you are not a member of Facebook then sign up. If you are a member but not on my friends or family list, send me the request. There are some things I do not like about Facebook and specially some of the ads they let run on it, they are rip offs, just be careful. For the most part Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with those you care about. I have started a Twitter site and I will know more about Twitter in a Twitter while. All this aside, let's get this reunion happening. All those who live on the other side of the Rocky Mountains will be able to come over here and see for the first time, or again, what it is like to live at the best place on earth (I'll most likely hear back on this one).

I have been using computers for twenty years. I have designed websites, written technical documents, done database and other programming. I love the world I live in and take every chance I can to photograph it. I enjoy editing my work, working with graphics, and printing and publishing. Now, at this young age, to take what I know so far and increase my avenues into a career in graphics and media design. It is the brightest future I have felt for many years.
