Cate Eales

I'm an American living in Kelowna, BC (Canada) with my husband, Eric. I miss the Peet's Coffee and Mexican food that is so easy to find in my beloved San Francisco Bay Area. But not the traffic. Having given up driving way too fast, I still stay up way too late and drink way too much coffee. I own and operate Computer Care Kelowna, a mobile computer business providing on-site service for home and small business customers. My weekly column, "Getting Along With Your Computer" appears Mondays on castanet.net. The column archive is available any time at the Computer Care Kelowna website.

My Life In Tech: Staying Up Way Too Late

Checkmate in Fall

It’s midnight and I’m reading about SEO plugins for WordPress.  I’m testing one now.  I’m going to be upset with myself in the morning. Here’s a nice picture. Hope the weather holds.

Dépaysement: The Story of Canadian Thanksgiving

Canadian Thanksgiving

Dépaysement translates roughly as “change of scenery.”  It translates even more roughly as “The feeling that comes from not being in one’s own country.” I am an American in Canada.  It takes some getting used to. Thanksgiving in October still sneaks up on me.  I’ve always celebrated Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday of November, but here …
