Well, this past few months have been so very new things happening that I have had little chance to blog. I will post again soon with more detailed information but for now, this is a quick outline
If you do not already know, I took on a morning show host position at Juice FM in Grand Forks, BC. I’m on air between 6 and 10 every weekday morning and I have a lot of fun there. The Boundary is a great place to live and work. I’m known on air as “Martin in the Morning” and my motto is “Taking You into the Light”. Bunny joins me at the station and she does the morning traffic report.
I also have been involved with the local volunteer fire department. I’m still developing my skills but I can drive the big red fire truck, direct traffic (in an emergency situation) and I can handle a hose with confidence. I can also help with medical emergencies by as a runner. I hope to have my First Responders ticket this year. Then I can help even more.
A book. Published. Yes. After many years of magazine articles, TV documentary scripts, news stories, ad copy, training courses, and so on, I finally wrote and published some fiction. I do have a 4 books of non-fiction on the burner but finally, a book has been published. It’s on Kindle and Amazon under the title of Counter Encounters.
Greenwood Board of Trade took me on as their president. This has also been a busy time for me. The BoT or gBoT was in need of improving its business advocacy in the region. I have made some changes to make it a business and trade development entity as opposed to just promoting city beautification.
Systems Solar is my design company. I have been working on this project for many years. I have entered a deal with the stakeholders of the West Kootenay Power Building (WKPB) in Greenwood (Anaconda). I will be preparing a report fo them to look at monetizing the site. It is a beautiful heritage transformer station. Built in 1905, it is an icon of the Crowsnest Highway 3.
I have updated some of my IMDB page. I corrected my name and I still have to add my Shaw TV show credits and a few other rolls on TV series. Lots to do!
Well that is what’s up these days. I hope that the book generates some income so I can do more writing. Time is money in our world and so the more I can earn the more I Can write. and on that note, I must get back to preparing my weekday radio show, the gBoT AGM next week, and finalize a site visit for the WKPB this week!
