Raging forest fires threaten British Columbia's city of Kelowna, see how the fires are kept at bay

Steve the videographer recorded this footage from his lakefront home in Kelowna British Columbia Canada. With the nearby forests on fire, the water bombers were continually making passes in front of his home to fight the nearby fires. After a while Steve noticed a boater getting dangerously close to the flightpath/pickup path for the bombers and continued to record in case of an incident. The boater as you will see, definitely was not thinking clearly as to his and his passengers safety, never mind the safety of the skilled pilots working tirelessly to fight the blazes. There were more than 2500 residents evacuated locally as the fires came dangerously close to residential neighbourhoods. Thankfully there was no incident on the water this day, and the fires were extinguished after a number of days. Thanks to all the hardworking firefighters in the air and on the ground, they conquered yet another bad round of forest fires in Kelowna.

Surprising What Kids Will Do For A Treat

Recently during the Birch Bay , Washington sand castle competition, there was a small out door market as well. There were some great craft displays, live music,and a few food vendors. Amongst one of the most interesting vendors, was this "power it yourself" smoothie kiosk. As you can see in the video, some get quite a kick out of blending their own smoothie, even if it takes a bit of exercise. What parent wouldn't want one of these at home, it sure would help out on the power bill !!

Curiosity Killed the Cat, when is close too close

Back in the summer of 2014, the city of Kelowna British Columbia was experiencing the third worst forest fires in history. More than 2500 residents had to be evacuated as the fires grew to a dangerous level. Kelowna in nestled amongst the Columbia Mountain range which is part of the Rocky Mountains in the southern interior of British Columbia ,Canada. Steve the videographer here has a home on the waterfront of Okanagan Lake in Kelowna so he had a front row seat to the activity of the highly skilled water bomber pilots battling the raging ,near out of control, fires nearby. Steve noticed a boater getting dangerously close to the path that the bombers were using to pick up approximately 800 gallons of water in order to get back to the fires and make a water drop. Steve continued to record in the event an incident between the boater and aircraft occurred. Thankfully there was no incident and all the firefighters on the ground and the air were able to extinguish the forest fires after a number of days. As Steve said" don't be a bag of hammers" be smart while on the water!!

Poncho is a rescue dog from Playa Del Carmen Mexico. She has always been a little skittish, but when it comes to baths and in this case, nail clipping, she is the perfect dog. Although appearing a little nervous, she has always been great when this job has to be done, calm and always helpful. Of course, getting a treat when completed does help, along with always talking to her . She does get a lot of exercise, but her nails grow quite quickly, meaning clip clip is a regular duty of her owner Brent. Don't you all wish your pooch was this well behaved at pedicure time??

Ryan did a great job asking questions about the classic car, as he himself is a 1990's BMW e30 Series car guru, it is Ryan's passion. The driver, and mechanic which maintains the collection's Model T's, was amazing with his knowledge of the vehicle and said he has been driving them since he was 15. He also informed everyone he made a 1500 mile journey in the old Ford, and it was quite enjoyable "nothing happened very fast ,which made it a pleasant trip" .

Guy finds a Bear and Two Old Men hiding within a Giant Cedar Tree

While scuba diving and exploring the area of Tuwanek on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, just a short ferry ride from Vancouver, Brent found something very interesting. Along with such a beautiful location and one of the top diving locations in the area there are art pieces called Tree Spirits which occur randomly in the area. This 3 piece artwork he found right on the property of the cabin Brent and some friends rented for the weekend while scuba diving in the area. Following is some information about the Tree Spirits. It would be great to explore and locate some others in the area. "LEGEND OF WOOD SPIRITS There are wood spirit legends in almost every culture as far back as history goes, focusing on Native American, African. It's being told that wood carvers from these cultures looked for a face, animal, or other character that they saw imbedded in the grain of the wood, then worked to "release" it. Many different cultures throughout history have believed that "Spirits" inhabit the trees of the forest. Some believed that Spirits were living within the tree from its beginning, others believed the spirits of passed ancestors returned to the earth and existed in one of its many forms. The legend of the wood spirits marked with an effigy, carving or containing naturally appearing images of spirits, are considered very good luck."

Guy sticks his hand in -346 ℉ liquid nitrogen, will it freeze off 1m12s

Guy sticks his hand in -346 ℉ liquid nitrogen, will it freeze off

WARNING DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME Brent the cameraman and machinist uses liquid nitrogen quite often in his line of work. He uses it for shrinking parts to enable them to be pressed into other pieces of equipment much easier than using a hydraulic press or heavy hammers. Liquid nitrogen can be a very dangerous liquid if not respected. The temperature of liquid nitrogen can readily be reduced to its freezing point of −346 °F by placing it in a vacuum chamber pumped by a vacuum pump. Liquid nitrogen's efficiency as a coolant is limited by the fact that it boils immediately on contact with a warmer object, enveloping the object in insulating nitrogen gas. This effect, known as the Leidenfrost effect, applies to any liquid in contact with an object significantly hotter than its boiling point. This Leidenfrost effect also is the reason the super cooled liquid does not burn Brent's skin on contact.

Guy Learning To Fly Drone the Hard Way

Adam received this drone as a gift from his father but had no previous training . He did have rc cars so he does have the concept of operating an rc aircraft with the controller. As anyone knows, these type of aircraft take incredible hand eye co-ordination. After a few flights and some crashes, Adam is slowly getting the skill down and making some great maneuvers. Here is some short footage of what can happen with a negative result, as well as a positive result with a great landing. Well done Adam, keep up the training .

Great Guy Makes Campfire Smores for his Sweety

Camping is a great past time for many as we know. Along with the fun of getting out in the wilderness and away from the daily chores at home, camping also involves some fun activities that rarely occur while home. One that Brent and Elsa enjoy is a campfire, which also involves making campfire foods, one being S'MORES. These can be tough to perfect, and having the perfect fire, great mallows, and the perfect cookies are key ingredients. Elsa prefers the chocolate coated graham wafers, and well Brent, he will eat anything specially if it has chocolate involved. So once Brent got the fire just right he began toasting the marshmallow and when he felt it was just right, he signalled Elsa to get her chocolate coated wafers ready and he placed the ooey gooey marshmallow in place on the cookies. As you will see, it must have been good as Elsa seemed to enjoy the great blend of campfire favour flavours.

Shipwrecked in Vancouver 1m37s

Shipwrecked in Vancouver

While attending a fundraiser at the Maritime Museum in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver B.C Canada, Brent the cameraman spotted these beached sailboats while walking around the park area at the museum. Recalling the huge windstorm that hit the city May 23,2017 Brent scrambled down the giants rocks to get a closer look at the wrecks. Following are quotes and information about the storm that rocked the Lower Mainland. "The problem arises when some owners simply walk away from an old derelict boat that’s been destroyed. Kitsilano residents say has been a growing problem for years, claiming every time there’s a windstorm multiple boats wash ashore and create pollution. “There doesn’t seem to be a plan on how we get rid of these boats,” says Jeff Whitehead, a supervisor from the Vancouver Park Board who is ultimately responsible for the cleanup which can cost north of $7,000 dollars. Winds gusting between 40 and 50 miles an hour pushed sailboats onto the shore at Sunset Beach in English Bay, and also took out a navigational buoy off-shore. Brent said it was amazing seeing this being he has lived locally his whole life, but has never seen this up close. Everyone is hoping that this issue of the damaged and abandoned boats is cleaned up soon as summer is coming . Summer brings a great amount of tourism and beach visits for locals .

While visiting Manning Park approximately 3 hours East of Vancouver British Columbia, Elsa saw many ground squirrels running around the field and wanted to see how tame they were. So after watching them for awhile while Elsa and her husband enjoyed lunch in the park, She wanted to see if she was able to get up close with one of the cute little guys by offering a carrot. Not only was Elsa able to get up close, she was able to hand feed a fairly tame little guy that was extremely cute in the way he hopped on his hind legs to make his final approach for the carrot. Brent and Elsa enjoyed the park and watching all the ground squirrels running around having a great time with local visitors. I would say the grand squirrels as well enjoyed Brent and Elsa's visit.

Once near the front of the stopped traffic, Brent got out and began recording as the firefighters tackled the blaze. Being in a rural area, the firefighters of Britannia Beach are volunteers, which meant approximately a 20 minute arrival time from the time of the 911 call.

Amazing Honey Bee, A creature WE can not live without 1m05s

Amazing Honey Bee, A creature WE can not live without

As we all know, without honey bees as well as other bees, we as humans can not survive easily. Bees of all varieties live on nectar and pollen which they gather from flowering plants. Without bees, pollination would be difficult and time consuming - it is estimated that one-third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination. The cameraman was able to catch some great footage of just how hard the honey bee works to gather the pollen which you can see attached to its legs just below its wings. A very fascinating insect.

There were a number of spectators and challengers taking a chance at riding this old bull.

Wild Rodeo Bronc Bucks off Cowboy and Saddle

During the May long weekend Cloverdale B.C Rodeo, Brent the cameraman took in the excitement of the exhibition. Along with other events, Brent felt the Saddle Bronc event was the most exciting. These horses came straight out of the gate going hell bent for leather bucking like they had a bee under the saddle. This detailed ride was the fastest, most aggressive one of the event and Brent was glad he got it on camera. You can feel the power of the Bronc, and the shear bravery of the Cowboy.
