Work-Term started today. Bit of a set-back with mine, pretty standard where I'm involved. Added a Log for it. Also a nice banner of my wines/ciders/meads up above!

Some more work done, getting somewhere. I think so, anyway. Made a Projects page, divided between Ideas and Works in Progress. Added a page for a Portfolio with another specifically for 3D. Even put up an About section, though there isn't a whole lot there yet.

It's apparently the first day of spring. Doesn't look like it out there.

Added some more stuff to this site yesterday, like the Winery Plan and a few ideas.

I just found out about an event happening reasonably close if in a different country on the weekend of my birthday: Woodstock 50. There are enough bands I recognize for it to be a bit attractive.

Started a page for CCWV. Not really anything of note there. Kinda got a menu working, will add to it as I add pages. I then typed up my Vineyard Plan project as a page, so it is now viewable here.

Last night was Dungeons & Dragons. Fun as usual. Got home later than usual, though. Didn't sleep in much. Still tired. It's St. Patrick's Day, so when I eventually get dressed I'll be wearing a green shirt. I should be in Ship Harbour, but I haven't gotten ready to go yet. My TV isn't working. The screen isn't turning on. Sometimes it will, but as soon as I plug something in to an input, it shuts off again.

I have to do a "virtual" winery assignment sometime soonish, a continuation of the "Planning a Vineyard" project I presented last week. For a different course, though. There is also a report on a winery (I picked Muwin Wine Estates) I need to do this week. For Communications I have something about my portfolio, though he extended that until after the first work-term.

Oh, I should probably mention I'm currently taking the Cool Climate Wine & Viticulture program at the Kingstec campus of Nova Scotia Community College. First semester is wrapping up, ending with a three week work-placement/practicum. Which I also have to finalize this week, during March Break. Four school-related items on my to-do list.

Why did I pick now to reboot this website yet again? Well, I have some time. Also, all these projects. I'm also considering adding a CCWV page where I post links and resources like book reccomendations. Possibly also some assignment stuff. It's bouncing around in my head, so maybe it will happen.

I also want to get my portfolio up and visible again. I'll be trying to focus on completed projects, but knowing me I'll wind up posting all sorts of stuff about the other projects I'm starting or dreaming about starting. Most, if not all, will be unrelated to wine making, of course.

I'm not sure about leaving this blog/newsfeed type page as what people see when they land on I don't know what I would put here instead, though. Still wondering about how I'm going to lay out the site this time. Menus and whatnot. How many pages should I divide it up into? What should actually get included?

It's a living thing, this website. It'll grow and I'll have to chop it up and rearrange it. It is known.

It's the first day of March break, and I spent a good chunk of it cleaning. Almost caught up. Now I wanted to get to work on my website, but doing so involves remembering how. I'll get there. Just testing to see if this is showing up right.

It wasn't really, but that wasn't a surprise. I've played with some css, now it looks better. Now to think about what content I want to have on here...

There is something I want to put here before I forget where to find it again: a link to a Brazilian photographer's website, where a project I kinda want to imitate can be found. The website of Marcos Alberti, specifically his Wine Project (the O Project looks interesting, too, but not sure I'm willing to even try pulling it off!).
