'Tis the time of year for outdoor events. One in the Okanagan that has been going for over a hundred years is the IPE or Interior Provincial Exhibition ( and Stampede ) held in Armstrong at the end of August every year. We used to live in Armstrong just up from the Exhibition Grounds and could hear the loudspeakers from our garden. The attendance is up to 14,000 for this five day event.

 In July 2009 we were honored by the attendance at the Exhibition Grounds of the National Royal Canadian Mounted Police's "Musical Ride".

Oh, by the way, did you know that Amazon's Kindle now sells 105 digital books for its
E-reader for every 100 it sells in printed form?

I love the RCMP Musical Ride - so colorful and elegant. And bagpipes too - they always make me cry - must be the Scotland in my blood.

I've been in love with the Mounties for years. So smart.

Careful, Jenny, some of those Mounties in the picture are girls! You must mean their uniforms!!
