Hey Greg! Congrats on your new duties!

I live in Kingston, Ontario and work for a church here. Our pastor and our Youth Director also use Logos. I also work as a national trainer for a company called Winning Kids Inc. which specializes in Abuse prevention training.

Hi to all my fellow Canucks as well! :-) I mean Canadians of course... I'm a SENS fan... Devil

Ron Humphries:
My father, Ralph Humphries, began the TV program 'A Faith For Times Like These' back some 50+ years ago.

Nice, Ron.

I did NOT know that.

Hello Greg!  So happy to hear that Canada is being recognized.  I live in Calgary and both my son and I use this software.  We are hoping for some Training coming to Canada.  Although Bellingham is close for travel the classes are always held at the end of the month which is impossible for me to attend due to my work schedule.  We would even travel to Vancouver if necessary.  Put in a word for us to get the Morris Proctor training in Canada.  Also rotating the dates is a good idea as everyone has different times of the month that they are busiest.  Please don't forget those of us who are not pastors but avid studiers and sharers of the Word.

Steve!      *smile*            Where were you in the Ottawa Valley?        My wife is a Valley Girl from Pembroke, Ontario.  My first Pastoral Ministry in the 1960's was in Golden Lake and Eganville, Ontario -- Just South of Algonquin Provincial Park -- before we served in St. Catharines at a new mission.

Greetings Greg

I'm just down the valley from you in Bridgetown, NS. I pastor The Living Word Fellowship here. I have been using Logos since ver. 3. I have done demos at pastor meetings and really enjoy using it.

 Where were you in the Ottawa Valley?  

Milford, I had no idea you were also up in "God's Country." Don't tell your wife, but we were just down the road in "rival" Renfrew"!

Our kids played hockey in almost every "Valley" arena available including many games in Eganville. And it was after those years of living with the rocks, hills and rivers, my son ended up working right next to Algonquin Park for 4 years.

Steve, I just loved it there!                Used to go to Renfrew quite often ...        I remember very fondly shopping at a woolen mill on the Bonnechere River there ...

        I think this is the one???

Edit:  That may or may not be the one.  If I remember correctly it was situated where old highway 17 from Pembroke to Ottawa went through Renfrew ..

The McDougall Mill; Old Ontario Mills

Filed under: Landscape,Mill,Ontario — Tags:  — Harold Stiver @ 6:00 am The McDougall Mill, Renfrew

The McDougall Mill, Renfrew

The McDougall Mill in Renfrew lies beside the Second Chute on the Bonnechere River in Ontario. It was originally a grist mill built in 1855 by Hudson’s Bay Company agent, John Lorne McDougall. In 1969 it became a museum. It is just upstream from a Swinging Bridge built in 1895.

Hi Greg,

Welcome to your new position with Logos. I'm really excited that you are working for a great company and that to representing Logos in Canada!

On the topic you introduced and as you and many others pointed out, there are a number of people who haven't heard of Logos and maybe tying up with local events (seminars, conferences etc.) could help educate the Canadian Christian population about Logos. I can speak to some people who might know of such events but I can't promise anything. If anything comes up and if there are some potential leads, Ill contact you again, if such an endeavour is plausible from your side. 

On another note, I am a relatively new user, having used Logos for about 3 years now. All that I know and use in this great software was self-taught. And I know I haven't even used Logos to its full potential. How about having some training seminars for people who do know about Logos so that they can better use and utilize the amazing tools Logos has to offer? I have always found myself wishing that there could be some weekend training seminar I could go to to learn the basics.

These are the ideas at the top of my head.

Couldn't agree more. A training seminar would be great! I live in Toronto, but I'd gladly drive to Haliburton for it!

The McDougall Mill in Renfrew is now a museum--At a going away party when leaving Renfrew, I was given a picture of the near-by "swinging-bridge" (made of suspension cables) which hangs in my living room. We used to hold out door Gospel Music services with the Mill as a backdrop.

          Thanks, George!        *smile*                    Blessings to you on the Time Change Weekend!             God is giving you another hour in your 39th year, I believe!           (I've made your "link" live by this response, George!  I'm using Google Chrome until I get my IE Troubles resolved.  BTW, I really like the small world you sent!    Indeed, Thanks, eh!)

                                Or????              I guess not everyone on these Forums from the four corners of the world get that extra hour this weekend.  My son in Saskatchewan and my daughter in the Caribbean do not change times ....       *smile*

Edit:   Hey George!      Did you see the cute little Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer in the video you shared?    Worth a smile, eh?  Except he wasn't quite mounted, but still cute!             Final Edit:      It took 15 minutes to reminisce through that old video, George; however, I enjoyed it ..   even the section where they gave the Mountie buck teeth like a Canadian Beaver, eh?

I have taken the picture of the mill and added it as my "background" picture at star-up.

Thanks again.

Wow, Steve!                I also thank our Gracious God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for all my memories of His Care and Blessings over the years!              *smile*

                 I used to drive over to Renfrew to visit parishioners in the manor, Bonnechere Manor??? - not sure if that's right ...

On my way back to Eganville and Golden Lake from Renfrew(Golden Lake is where I lived!) my wife and I used to stop at the Cobden Cheese Factory and go "bananas" in the cheese factory.  I'm sure you've been there, eh?

                        Also, I even once went over the Haley Station and bought some dynamite to blast out a winter grave in our church cemetery ...  can you even imagine those days .. ????   the 1960's!             Just go in and buy dynamite at the magnesium mine .......     (Of couse It didn't work, BTW!      *smile*  It did make a real loud bang and the young pastor was quite embarrassed at his lack of knowledge as to how to really use the stuff! )  I was up to preach at their 100 th Anniversary a couple of years ago, and those still alive remember that very well indeed!

All this talk of Renfrew - I have relatives who live down the road in Carleton Place. Small world.

Hi and Peace to you!          Do we call you Devin?

               That's beautiful country indeed!  Right by Mississippi Lake, source of the Canadian Mississippi River that flows from the Carleton Place area into the mighty Ottawa River!

                      When I was courting my first wife back in the late 1950's, attending Concordia Lutheran Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, I used to take a train to Toronto, then a Canadian Train to Carleton Place, and got off there and hitchhiked over to Pembroke, Ontario on Highway 17 - The Trans-Canada Highway.  The Steam Engine days were just over at that time in the United States and were coming to their end in Canada .....

                                  Those were the days of the real, genuine steam engines!   With coal, even!  Wow!           I remember Carleton Place fondly!          *smile*

BTW - My first wife is still my present wonderful wife -- over 52 years later!            *smile*                     Praise God!

Class G5c Pacific 1262 was built by the Canadian Locomotive Company of Kingston, Ontario, in November 1946, based on a very much modernized design of CPR light Pacifies that went back to 1906. Seen here at Ottawa West, the 1262 has less than two years left before her date with the scrapper in June 1961. What a shame these most modern of North American light Pacifies had such a short life span. Photo by John Frayne.


We're getting a little bit ahead of our story, however. On December 4th, 1959, PI class 2-8-2 5152, which had been working out of Ottawa West for some time, left, dead, on train No. 74 behind Alco diesel-electric "FA-1" unit 4002 in charge of, who else, Viau and Beaudry again for her date with destiny in Montreal. One little Tid Bit I remember about Leo. Viau was that he could put a steel soft drink bottle cap between his thumb and index finger and press it in half with no great effort. Try that one sometime! The following day G5 1267, another Ottawa West "resident", was ordered for 7:00 PM to handle a freight extra over to Smiths Falls, via the Carleton Place and Chalk River subs., with Charlie Weston as engineer and G. Gervais as fireman.

Milford Charles Murray:
Bonnechere Manor

Was "torn down" or sod? New home [and new ambulance building] built near hospital

Milford Charles Murray:
Cobden Cheese Factory

Also played goal in Cobden--plus friends would invite us onto their land to cut down our Christmas tree.

Milford Charles Murray:
Haley Station and bought some dynamite

Wow-never thought to try that--they made race car wheels and aircraft parts while I was there.

Milford Charles Murray:
blast out a winter grave

Only did one outdoor  winter funeral [most "remains" kept in vault over the winter] this family owned a construction business--they (almost) made the grave too wide with the construction equipment digging through rock-hard frozen earth.

Thanks, Milford.
