So where is Newfoundland today in regards to where it was 20 years ago?; 10 years ago? Now? Changes have been occurring with breathtaking speed and with consequences unforeseen, almost. An incredibly beautiful place beset by the loss of fish and the discovery of oil. I’ve written and photographed about the back story in […]Read More “Oil is strong and fish is weak!”…Tert Card.
HOW DID I GET HERE? (the halfofit.blogspot.com) Up until this point, the arnnarn.com blog, has been a pretty straight path from beginning to where it is today. But, in reality like any other journey, it has not been a straight track. As such, this entry will be a little off the familiar and beaten […]Read More Musings on the road(s) taken and not taken.

A very famous, overpaid (but ungrateful) sports commentator was asked about the best part of his now-over job with ESPN. His too-quick response was “Seeing it in the rear-view mirror”! Obviously, things didn’t go too well for him there. Not to worry though, both he and ESPN have gone on to greater things. Bye Newfoundland!
