updates on top
Links are fresh and working today
but as pages get revised and moved,
sometimes an old page shown here,
might get changed or removed.
Apologize in advance, if that happens.
as of Mar 2008 everything is OK.
16. Biggest change to my whole web site has taken place
effective Apr 17, 2016
All Pictures on my web pages are now watermarked
Facebook, Google Images, and others,
have created this wild west attitude, that all pictures on the Internet,
belong to whoever views them???
All text and pictures on my pages are Copyright.
Some have had the nerve to copy all my text and photos,
and pasted them into sites like ancestry.com
This is against the law, it is stealing!
I have spent over 20 years creating these pages,
I allow free access, no ads, no tax money used,
no investors, and still this isn't enough???
I see now google has a reverse picture finding service now.
guess what, I can now search for every location for each picture.
If it is online, google will find the match.
I am coming to get you!
I apologize for all the honest folks that view my site,
and look forward to the new pages I create.
I have stopped right click action on all my pages.
I know there is ways around this, so that is why
the watermarks have been added.
15. Jan 23, 2013
added Gainsborough, Carievale and Carnduff pages
per a request from a fellow in Revelstoke.
Not quite finished these but a start.
Added a bunch of pictures to my BC Tel History pages.
A few corrections here and there,
some new WWI and WWII memorial pics and pages as well.
14. Mar 20, 2012
my new copyright rules above, added for obvious reasons,
just because it's a "social network" you have,
just because it's your facebook page,
just because it's your personal blog,
if it is open to the public,
then my information and pictures are ALL copyright.
I can't believe the gall of some folks that think everything they see
is theirs to add to whatever, like it belongs to them.
we wonder why governments are enforcing copyright laws,
this is why. It shouldn't be necessary.
add a link is all you need to do.
It has taken me years to add this stuff,
and build trust with persons donating photos and info,
and then maintain it,
and having someone "borrow it" is a slap to my face.
just do not do it. If it's your own photos,
your own stories, do what you want with them.
I hope I don't sound over protective,
I just want common decency to prevail.
I can find a needle in a haystack if need be,
and google etc, makes it real easy to find you.
Please consider my work. If you don't like it, don't look at it.
I have had enough with my public recipe page
and because one lady thinks any recipe she sees online,
belongs to her and her BLOG, I have removed the whole page.
Sad part is the lady doing this is from Saskatchewan.
I had NO problem with folks using the recipes
in their OWN home, all I asked was NO
PUBLIC USE of the recipes.
Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, etc etc are
considered ALL PUBLIC USE!
I was just about
to open my mom's recipe book online,
but can not see that happening in the near future.
All it takes is one to ruin it for all.
I apologize to
all others that have morals.
If you accessed the recipe page in the past,
and want the recipe again, please email me.
As long as you are not the ONE lady, or a friend or relative of her.
I have a special recipe for folks like her!!
I don't mind proper PRIVATE USE of MY photos,
if it is STRICTLY for a PRIVATE Family Scrapbook, or such.
Notice, I say MY! Others that donate pictures control
and maintain the copyright for them.
I add this information to share the history,
it isn't going anywhere as long as the rules are followed.
If you want to the see the picture later,
the page will be there.
Do you really need to copy and paste it into a facebook page?
do you really need to add it to a blog?
I don't grab your personal pictures,
and expect same treatment back is all.
I have added many web pages last 2 months,
lots of folks have sent new photos etc.
It's worth a second look if you haven't checked out the site
in the last year. enjoy VIEWING them!
I don't want to add watermarks and ruin these old photos.
thanks for the cooperation!
