CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions

CSS MasteryWell, I just read through the CSS Mastery book and discovered just how much CSS has changed since I was using it to add basic styles to sites just 5 years ago. I have tried to keep up-to-date as much as possible but this book opened my eyes to a whole world of possibilities with CSS that I never knew existed.

I found that the book provided a solid base knowledge for CSS and gave links and way to find any further information that I may need when developing future sites. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that feels they need a refresher on CSS or would like to start properly coding CSS from scratch.

you can get it at most book stores, here is the link on amazon

Avalanche Skills Training

Living in Calgary I am fortunate enough to be close to the mountains. Snowboarding is a definitely passion of mine and I try to get out as much as possible, this past weekend I managed to get out to the Sunshine Village backcountry and take a course for avalanche skills training.

I had an awesome time and managed to learn quite a bit about causes of avalanches, avoidance of avalanches and avalanche rescue.

If anyone is interested in riding backcountry runs at some point in their life, I would definitely recommend taking an avalanche course before you head out.
