Son Richard and our Granddaughters Azure and Emeline Arrived

Today I drove over the Monashee Pass to Vernon to pick up our son Richard and our little granddaughters. They were exhausted from traveling such a long distance. After spending the afternoon at the Aspengrove Riding School at our daughter-in-law’s ranch and a snack at our son Michael’s place we were heading east to our home in Fauquier. The little girls were overtired and fell asleep soon after we started our trip. So Richard and I were able to exchange the latest family news, while I was driving.

Fauquier Webcam is Up and Running Again

New Life for the Fauquier Webcam Operation

Contributed by Stefan Klopp

Last night I relaunched the fauquiercam.com webcam after just over a year of downtime. The previous computer we used was noisy, and the direction of the camera wasn’t that exciting. Today I migrated all the software running on the old noisy computer to a new micro computer called a Raspberry Pi (you can find more information on Raspberry Pi here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/help/what-is-a-raspberry-pi/). Also with the help of a couple of Wi-Fi range extenders we were able to move the whole operation from the front of the house to the cabin in the backyard. I hope this new view will be a little more exciting, especially when we build timelapses to watch the garden grow. We may even get to see the occasional bit of wildlife and I don’t mean Peter or Gertrud!
