Only finite amount of wonderful Cuban originated Bacardi Gold Rum remains, some in shot glass and rest in colorful large size decal decorated glass bottle sporting its famous fruit bat logo.
According to the label on this bottle Senior Facundo Bacardi established his business back in 1862 about the time the American Civil War was raging.
Facundo and his brother José bought a distillery that year housing a copper and cast iron still and set it up in Santiago de Cuba.
Unknown then to the two brothers the building was a home to some fruit bats living in its rafters, these little guys became the inspiration for the future Bacardi bat logo making the rest history.

Trade shows, like depicted, educate interested visitors about new advances in technology and how it will impact on output in manufacturing sector reducing costs and improving production rates to boost more profits for company owners.
This image depicts technical workers being shown a new numerical controlled work center machine that uses multiple tools and is capable to produce very complex and precise work pieces in least time compared to the past when the work was done in whole machine shops by multitudes of skilled machinists using many machines.
As the picture shows the machining is done enclosed inside a machining compartment that can be viewed through coolant splashed plexiglass.
The manufacturing is done quickly and efficiently while continually doused in special coolant to protect the tools and work-piece from heat buildup due to the rapid machining rate.
The SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) puts on trade shows every year such as this in many big cities both in USA and Canada, this one was the 2016 Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show.

Serious or fatal road accident is possible if any or all the several critical control parts depicted in picture should fail while you are driving this modern car at normal speeds.
Let us begin at left side of picture with the CV Joint, that brass-color steel rod with what looks like a bunch of black disks attached to it by a chrome color strap clamp.
Should one of these fail, one of the car wheels would seize and or come off resulting in loss of control and lots of sparks from front end of car and perhaps, serious or fatal accident.
Next, we have the coil and shock absorber assembly which provides stability and keeps the car tire from rubbing on the fender moreover, if that screw and nut connecting this assembly to the car frame comes off then the coil-shock unit would probably break off, cause lots of sparks, and maybe puncture the front tire resulting in a crash.
Finally, on the right of the coil and shock absorber assembly and partly obscured by it, bolted to car engine block, is the power steering motor unit, which if it failed would leave the car driver helpless because of loss of steering resulting in perhaps a fatal accident.
Also shown in this picture are hydraulic oil lines, those silvery thin tubes, that if severed could cause loss of control because their oil is needed for example, in power steering .

Dandelions, prickle weeds like depicted Canada Thistle, Creeping Charlie,etc., go wild during wet Summer like Quebec and Canada’s east coast is experiencing this year while West Coast forests burn due lack of rain.
Alleged “climate change” is blamed for what is happening and there is an element of truth in it all however, our limited recorded history throws some doubt on it all because even before the term was coined our planet has had good and bad weather along with extreme fluctuations in temperature.
Our reliance on technology and in particular computer generated weather and temperature charts based on data gathered by humans and software programs also created by humans to accurately predict our planet’s future is a recipe for disaster.
We are error prone therefore the basis for our decisions extracted from computers is also not reliable enough to make possibly very costly conclusions moreover, there is no shortage of well placed and connected international criminals waiting to profit from it all.
This doesn’t mean that no more real scientific work needs be done to ensure credible data however, all ideology tainted science must be denied free reign as it seems to have presently.
Our governments need to decide honestly and properly how our taxes are spent regarding any influence humans can muster against the forces of nature for the benefit of humankind.

Grainy B/W example photo of some interesting old architectural detail in downtown Montreal is a bit fuzzy looking however, it does provides a simple sample that describes it all.
Many early black and white photos were of similar quality because the equipment used to capture and process the images was primitive compared to our 21st century digital stuff, which is awesome.

Foggy Memphremagog happens sometimes in Summer under certain weather conditions however, it is in the Fall that this is more likely if the day is cold and lake water temperature is warmer.
It is in the early part of the day, the morning, when this normally happens as shown in this picture on hill overlooking this lake.
Fog is also noticed in boggy, low-lying, areas such as swamps that are found all over the Eastern Townships of Quebec during the fall season because of the temperature differences .

Hidden security camera mounted high on a roof ledge hangs over a portion of Saint Catherine Street in Montreal providing video and audio coverage of street below totally unknown to observed.
Actually this camera is not really hidden however, since few ever look for it and many others scattered all over the territory it may be considered so.
Since America’s 9-11 cities all over the western world have installed surveillance equipment including high-definition cameras now coupled with servers collecting data and employing sophisticated face recognition software that can be used by law enforcement.
In addition to distinguishing face features some of the software also filters through audio and voices matching it with the faces from huge readily available data bases couple globally, Orwell’s 1984 is definitely here!

In forest a dormant spore under decaying leaves until recent rains death awaits disguised as this mature Amanita family saprophyte awaiting those foolish enough to pick and eat it.
Mushroom looks innocent enough viewed from this angle where what is left of its shroud or skirt on the long stem is not visible as warning that it belongs to famous family responsible for most poisonous fungi toxin deaths.
Although the exact name of this member is not known to me, I know that it is best to leave this saprophyte I saw last Sunday in an Eastern Townships forest alone.

Construction continues at site despite Winter season and light snow dusting on already frozen soil, work must be done to complete the Dollard-des-Ormeaux community center extension on time.
The scene depicts construction work that continued right through last Winter and only completed a few months ago resulting in more valuable space available for community events for Dollard residents as well as entire West Island.
The extension built grafted to the existing community center structure and looks like it was there always yet it’s only this year that they completed it on time and within budget.
