Welcome to Canada 

Welcome to Canada

On top of that, they will have the option to live in the beautiful Okanagan or Vancouver Island area, living in an estate mansion of their choice, subsidized by the Canadian government.

Home away from Home, sort-of-speak. 

Don’t worry, we will teach you how to say,” Eh?” at the end of each sentence. Pretty soon you’ll be saying these very words,” I’m American and I’m living in Canada as an American citizen. That’s pretty good…eh?” At first the term “eh” will be hard to get use to, but after a year it will become part of your vocabulary…eh?  It quite possible Canada may be the new WESTWORLD

We welcome our American friends to Canada! Bonjour America!

Welcome to Canada! 🇨🇦

We hope our American friends enjoy living in Canada, as we deem our friends of America as our friendly neighbours and we hope you do come and visit CANADA on a regular basis.  

We also like to THANK YOU for all the fun we’ve had in Vegas, Nevada Arizona, California, Montana and Hawaii – we Canadians truly appreciate your patronage and warm welcome into the United States. 

BUT – the offer above is humour, as I don’t believe our Prime Minister would allow it. 

Please read :

FIRST and foremost, Canadian’s already know Americans rarely think of Canada or even care. But, we do care what happens south of us. As a business relationship, our countries trade back and forth one billion dollars, each and every day. That in itself means something. Everything United States does, effects Canada, in one way or another. 

But to most Canadians, it not only about business, it’s friendships. We want the best for Americans to. And when there’s an upset in your election, we listen. We really listen. 

The newly elect Donald Trump may be what your hoping for, but it worries us greatly. We wonder if the Electoral College system works properly ? Does it really work for the people? 

With the recent protests and young Americans placing up signs, saying,” All Power to All the People” we begin to worry. Is the Electoral College system working like it should? 

Does each vote count? 

And that’s the problem. We have the similar problem here in Canada, where each Province is counted in relationship to the population. In other words, you would need the votes of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba to all agree, in order to beat the eastern Canadian population, as in Ontario and Quebec. Unfortunately Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, all have a hard time for their vote to be counted. 

What this means, in Federal Elections in Canada 🇨🇦 Ontario and Quebec dictate the outcome of the election. Mind you, in this last Federal Election, the west and east agreed with the liberal election of our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.  

An overwhelmingly majority. 

Luckily for us, Prime Minister Trudeau has worked out for all Canadians. The only thing I wish – stop spending money. 

But, as for the Electoral College and our system in Canada, it doesn’t seem to be in the favour of a true democracy. A democracy where all the people are heard, all the time. 

I believe the sign in the NY protest says it all : 

Women Power

Black Power

Gay Power

Student Power

All Power to All the People 

It will be interesting to see what happens in the next six months.  

AND – 

The Trump University court cases ? Three of them involve serious lawsuits, involving Trump and his companies in allegations of fraud and racketeering. As he settles into the White House, and it just so happens he gets charged in just one of these allegations, he will be impeached like President Nixon was in August 1974, during the Watergate scandal. 

The definition of Impeachment: a formal accusation of wrongdoing against a public official. According to the United States Constitution, the House of Representatives can vote to impeach an official, but the Senate actually tries the case.
The moral of this story ? 

All Power to All of the People all of the time.

After a year long election, everyone just wants to get back to the normality of living. But I don’t think things will be normal in the United States for the next four years.  

As far as Canada is concerned, Trump may start up the pipeline extension across the United States 🇺🇸. This will surely evoke protests and unrest, but for the Province of Alberta, it will mean prosperity. 

Four years – what will it mean to Canada 🇨🇦 and United States 🇺🇸? 

We Canadians (I do mean anyone with a brain) real do understand the importance of what happens to our Americans friends. And I do say friends, because we respect your opinion, even though we may not agree with some of them ( example: gun control). We can agree to disagree. 

And yes, it’s true, we know Americans don’t even think of Canada. Period. 

We understand a true friendship takes time to grow and we will wait, ready to welcome you into Canada, as a friend. A friend where we share the same values of freedom, lifestyle and goals for our children and grandchildren. 

And – if you’re happy with the newly elect Donald Trump, that is your right. We can only hope for the best in America, and hope for Americans to successful understanding the hopes and dreams for Canadians too. 

That’s all we can hope for. 

On that note, I would like to mention, I wrote this piece on our Freedom and what it really means. Please read it and you’ll understand a little of Canada and how we think of our freedom as you do. Thank you for listening and I truly welcome my friendly American neighbours, of which I have many. 

Cheers from Canada 🇨🇦! 

BTW – Canadians love Vegas – a lot! So much so I operate a fun Facebook Page called Vegas Reviews – come join in the FUN of Las Vegas !

Character Outline – Priestesses Isis

Next couple of weeks I will introduce each of my characters in the science fiction screenplay BLACK ANGELS. It’s a detailed study for screenwriters, directors and science fiction fans.

BLACK ANGELS is best described in my LOGLINE

Drug addict war hero seeks revenge for brother’s death, risking his crew in a mining expedition on planet ALPHA XL-420 for the priceless Red Crystal, essential to saving their species from a deadly virus.

Earlier this spring I outlined character Commander Cardin.  Today I will develop the character of PRIESTESSES ISIS.


To better understand ISIS, we have to follow the history and its legend. Most of us are familiar with Egyptian gods with the mother goddess being ISIS herself. The Egyptian dynasties worshipped their gods as if it were the legendary religious truth. Roman rulers carried on with the same belief for over 400 years.

In today’s world Queen Siri XII is ruler.

Legend has it, the goddess ISIS was Osiris wife and became mother of Horus. It’s also been speculated, ISIS comes from the true bloodline of the ancient Sirians, who were sent here from the Alpha Canis Majoris Constellation under the orders of King Osiris (the 10th dynasty in the old kingdom of THE GODS OF SIRIUS). To the Sirians and Egyptians, King Osiris was considered the holy descendant and rebirth of THE GODS OF SIRIUS under the one and only, highest GODS of them all, LORD GOD ATUM.

In reference to today, LORD GOD ATUM is related to the same one and only GOD in the Christian Bible. In fact, written scriptures passed along from generation to generation were exaggerated to reflect their own religion, placing judgment onto mankind, during each era.

It’s under the same theory, when you give a group of people the task to whisper a message to the person sitting beside you, continuing around the table, the original message presented to the last person becomes completely distorted into a different message altogether. 

Each religion distorted the truth from one generation to the next.

The same holds true for the GODS OF THE HEAVENS or more closely related to THE GODS OF SIRIUS. Our ancient ancestors were praised as GODS, simply because our barbaric thinking back then, we really couldn’t understand the advanced technology of an intelligent alien species. 

Hence, throughout history mankind worshipped the GODS OF THE HEAVENS

The Legend of ISIS has since been distorted, as mankind couldn’t comprehend the power of ISIS. Therefore, in my screenplay BLACK ANGELS we explore the truth of our ancestors. Who they were and how they became the GODS OF THE HEAVENS. So now you have an idea of the story behind of our ancestors. Read more for further explanation HERE.

Lets learn the character outline for ISIS from an actors point-of-view. 


ISIS is a female High Priestesses, exercising politically and religious powers within a KINGS DYNASTY.   She’s responsible in keeping King Osiris powerful kingdom in check, sort-of-speak.  Her decisions are for her children preventing dictatorship. 

  • All female priestesses of this statue are referred to “The Way to The Gods of Sirius“.   
  • Her religious standing in the community is well respected and sometimes even feared. 
  • Only females born with psychic SPIRITUAL powers are said to be born prophets. This phenomenon is very rare and happens only once, every one thousand years. They are said to be able to communicate with THE GODS OF SIRIUS, unattainable to anyone else. In some extremely rare incidents, the High Priestesses can communicate with LORD GOD ATUM while in a spiritual trance. 
  • Males can never be born prophets because they can’t posses the spiritual powers. In Sirian history, male kings have tried to say they were prophets sent by LORD GOD ATUM. Because their genetic DNA coding, it’s an impossibility for males to achieve this high standard. Most kings who have declared themselves prophets were quickly revealed as false prophets. 

Historical records have read, that during THE FIVE KINGS DYNASTY, there was unrest on SIRUS 5, leading to dictatorship. Their actions lead to extreme poverty amongst its people, while the Kings of this era were spoiled with riches. After a revolutionary war broke out amongst the people, THE FIVE KINGS DYNASTY was no more.   All five kings were put to death. The Revolutionary War was named THE BLOODY WAR OF SIRIAN 5. 

After this time in history, female PRIESTESSES had political control. 

  • As stated, King Osiris power can NOT be swayed by Priestesses ISIS, as her spirituality is stronger then his. Even though King Osiris ruled the 10th dynasty in the Old Kingdom of THE GODS OF SIRIUS and considered the holy descendant and rebirth of THE GODS OF SIRIUS, Priestesses ISIS is far more powerful, having the power to overrule a decision by the King. 
  • The Holy Scriptures states that the CHILDREN OF SIRIUS are considered as the rebirths of THE GODS OF SIRIUS up until the age of 10 years old. It was then said THE GODS OF SIRIUS transformed themselves back into the realm of the heavens. Any child killed by any form would mean certain death to the person involved, including shaming down the line of existing families.
  • Priestesses ISIS is said to be the mother of all children. 
  • Even though Priestesses ISIS has political and spiritual power, her role in any MISSION is to be an adviser and mentor to the spiritual world. She can’t interfere with the mission’s Commander unless she feels her people are threatened. 
  • ISIS is devoted to her CHILDREN and will do anything to protect them, at all costs. 
  • Priestesses have the option of becoming involved with a partner. The partner must be a descendant of the ROYALTY BLOODLINE to THE GODS OF SIRIUS. Because of this restriction, most priestesses never get married. 
  • When a priestesses ever falls in love with her partner, her love is forever strong and she will do anything to protect her LIFE SOUL MATE. Even though, this is a very rare occurrence. 


  • She’s tall and lean. 
  • Brilliant oval blue eyes only acquired by a born prophet. This is usually the first sign of evidence revealing a true prophet to THE GODS OF SIRUS. The eyes are bigger then a normal person.
  • ISIS is a genius with remarkable understanding of the spiritual world. Telepathy is evident. 
  • A priestesses physical lifetime can last up to one thousand years.
  • ISIS is bald. It’s rare for a priestesses to grow any hair on her body. 
  • She has the ability to glow. 
  • ISIS also has the ability to transcend into a ghostly form. This usually happens when she’s involved with the spiritual world. 
  • Her mannerisms are cold. She doesn’t have time for small chitchat or with those who are dishonest. Under the right circumstances, she can have warm feelings, but normally reserves her warmth to her CHILDREN OF SIRIUS and the CHILDREN OF THE GODS. 
  • ISIS beauty is unmistakable and sometimes can lead to awkward moments, when a male species is lead into a trance by her beauty. Males are like butter in her hands, if she so wishes it. 
  • A priestesses is mortal and can become injured. Her weakness is unknown. 
  • ISIS skin is pale white but still very attractive. 
  • She’s all female, but her sexually is highly classified.  


Charlize Theron 

Uma Thurman 

Nicole Kidman 

Liv Tyler

Gisele Bundchen – model 

Angelina Jolie 

This concludes the developing character outline for PRIESTESSES ISIS

My CHARACTERS OUTLINE will most likely continue on with KAREN JEFFERSON

Our Journey with Stephen Hawking and Friends

Stephen Hawking quotes
The article by USA TODAY mentions,”Physicist Stephen Hawking is more convinced than ever that humans are not the only intelligent life form in the universe.” 

Oh I so agree ! 

I admire Stephen Hawking – his brilliance is without question. His witty interaction with us common folks (like me) is enjoyable to see.  Unfortunately I wasn’t born with the intelligence Professor Stephen Hawking naturally possess.  Like Mr. Hawking, we can be born with physical limitations hindering our journey on earth.   Fortunate for us, Stephen, ( if I may be so lucky to know him by his first name…sign) limitations has never stopped him from overcoming challenges to pursue his journey, studying dimensional universes and interacting with the world through the incredible linear tool of mathematics. 

Like Stephen, we all try our hardest to fit into the journey of life, presenting the world a digital footprint of ourselves. In return we hope our lives on earth will make some kind of impact, no matter how small or hard the journey is.  I personally consider Stephen Hawking a “Super Hero” featuring strengths of endurance, wit and the ability to allow us to see the universe, through his brilliant mind.

It’s certainly a gift.

If you ever had the chance to watch the original (1990) science fiction film, Total Recall, you might remember the scene where hero Douglas Quaid finally meets up with mutant resistance leader, Kuato. It’s here where Kuato helps Quaid unlock his secret past and reveals the purpose of a reactor built by an ancient Martian species millions of years before.

The famous dialogue by Kuato, as he mind-melts with Douglas Quaid (actor Arnold Schwarzenegger), ” Open your mind…open your mind…open your mind!” , is indeed how I refer dear Steven Hawking.  

He takes the time to “Open Our Minds” to the wonders of our dimensional universes, so we may understand the complexity of our natural cosmic plane of existence, including the mysterious Black Holes. This alone is an accomplishment in itself, never mind his own personal physical limitations, he has been dealt with, all his life. 

Mankind should listen to the warnings from Stephen Hawking, as we may one day be over-ruled, causing our own holocaust of humanity.

We can all learn from Stephen Hawking and realize, in the end, we are all placed on earth for a reason. It’s up to us to unlock the mysteries of life using our very own unique gift, hidden with our GEO ( Gene Expression Omnibus) DNA.  It’s vital,  we overcome our limitations, striving for a better YOU, opening a new book of adventure

Our very own book of gifts, just waiting to be opened.

Once you know your gift, you have the opportunity to share it with the rest of the world.

Romeo Durscher
And this is where I like to mention our friend Romeo Durscher, another brilliant mind, who has taken the time to share his experiences with all of us.   His determination of excellence and adventure across our world surpasses anything I will ever experience in my lifetime. His commitment to share with us his worldly adventures with a humbling attitude, enriches our lives immensely.  

What makes Stephen Hawking and Romeo different from the rest ? 

Their intelligence far exceeds anything I’m personally capable of achieving, but they both take the time to bring their experiences down to our level of understanding. 

Why would I say this ? 

In my lifetime (60), through my life experiences and careers, I have met brilliant engineers, doctors, architects, professors and scientists who simply can’t relate to the average person. They think on a linear logical sense. Their intellect can easily be described as a “computer processor” who become frustrated when you can’t understand their level of reasoning. 

So when I meet incredible people like Romeo, I’m thankful to be able to associate with him on his social feed. To take the patience and time to explain the technical aspects, (through his career with NASA and now DJI) at our level of understanding, is indeed a blessing. 

Maybe one day Romeo will meet Professor Stephen Hawking, because I’m sure the two of them would have a lot to talk about.  They might talk about the possibilities of receiving a signal from a planet like Gliese 832c, discussing our outcome. Or, how cool it would be, to see DJI drones record data and showcase remarkable videos back to Earth. 

Wouldn’t that be amazing ?! 

Anyway, thank you so much Romeo and Stephen Hawking, furthering our search for the truth in our little universe, enriching our thirst for knowledge, and to be able to understand it on our level. 

I truly appreciate it. 


My passion is writing, from the beloved science fiction to real conflicts in our lives. It’s my hope you enjoy my passion and join me on my journey of scifi, like my screenplay, BLACK ANGELS.  My journey of who we are and where did we come from, even though it may seem like science fiction to you.  

JAMES MONTANA SCRIPTS is my attempt to open your eyes, follow our dreams and share the emotionally turmoil which makes us human.  

As far as Aliens and the age old question, “Are we alone?” 

It’s pretty crazy to think we are the ONLY intelligent species throughout our own cosmic universe. We know within our vast Milky Way expanse, it’s still impossible to reach end to end, using our present technology. 

But, in time, who knows what the future will bring.  

Until then, I will always heed the words of warning by Professor Stephen Hawking,” We should be wary of answering back,” he said. “Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus — that didn’t turn out so well.”

AND – 

I will keep enjoying Romeo’s journey across our amazing world, learning the limitless ability of our technology, using DJI drones.  

May we be seeing DJI Drones on Mars in the near future Romeo ?  


True Friends are important in your social life.  I’m grateful to have met Romeo, Mark, Abbe, Robyn, Adam, Jim, Virma (otherwise known as the V force) and GG (Gladys Georgina Santos).  

Our dear friend Robyn has been quite ill lately and I wish her a speedy recovery.  After all she’s a Rocket Scientist

In the real world, I wouldn’t have met any of the above, if it wasn’t for Facebook. To actually have a chance to meet Professor Stephen Hawking, would be pretty amazing, to say the least. 

It’s on my bucket list. 

Have you met Professor Stephen Hawking?   I would love to read your story. 

I hope you enjoy my stories from Dreams to Reality.  If you do enjoy my work, please share with your friends.   BTW – Lets get to MARS soon! 

By Bari Demers screenwriter and freelance writer

PS Romeo replied to my question above, “May we be seeing DJI Drones on Mars in the near future Romeo ? ” 

He told me,”Oh Bari – Stephen is an amazing individual. When I was a kid I was afraid of him and his brilliance.  And I would love to meet him and just say “Thank You”.  He has inspired so many people and changed the way we are thinking.  And as much as I would love to see a drone on Mars, I wish we could just get our stuff together down here first. ;-)” 

I agree with Romeo – the conflicts between mankind must be resolved.  It’s essential for the betterment of mankind.

Black Angels

This is my project and dreams – if you’re one of the actors mentioned below, ask for the TREATMENT of BLACK ANGELS 

Dreams and Reality

They say,” Always keep close to your dreams.”

My dream visualizes the screenplay BLACK ANGELSatits Hollywood premier, on a Fall evening in Los Angeles. You know what I mean…the typical Hollywood scene with movie stars strutting along the red carpet supporting my blockbuster film, BLACK ANGELS.

Black Angels is a sci-fi horror genre, possibly starring Milla Jovovich, Kelly Reilly, Antje Traue, Keanu Reeves, Ewan McGregor and Peter Stormare. My obvious pick for Best Director could be James Gunn or Tim Burton. Both are remarkable directors and would make my screenplay BLACK ANGELS pretty awesome. Walt Disney Productions (aka Marvel Studios) is the obvious choice, with President Kevin Feige ( also film producer making a whopping 10 billion in revenue) running the show. The storyline and screenplay is by screenwriter,Bari Demers. ( That’s me 👽)

Westworld- The New Reality


I’m very excited to see the new TV series Westworld, originally written and created by no other than Michael Crichton.  

Everyone knows Michael Crichton.

If you don’t, let me refresh your memory. Michael started out as a physician and quickly transformed into the best-selling author, screenwriter, director and producer. Most remember him for his favourite work like Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Sphere, The Andromeda Strain, Disclosure, Rising Sun, Timeline and Prey.  

And there’s more…a lot more! 

Including my prized science-fiction western-thriller, Westworld. The script was written in 1972 with the movie released on November 21, 1973. The production of Westworld had complications due to the strong-arm approach by MGM Pictures (Studios). With a low budget of under a million dollars, there wasn’t enough money to go around. Like any artist, Michael was frustrated, as he had no control over casting, along with constant script changes. Apparently, the lead actors weren’t signed on until 48 hours before production, including the famous Yul Brynner, himself. 

Go figure! 

As said by Michael Crichton, “MGM had a bad reputation among filmmakers; in recent years, directors as diverse as Robert Altman, Blake Edwards, Stanley Kubrick, Fred Zinneman and Sam Peckinpah had complained bitterly about their treatment there. There were too many stories of unreasonable pressure, arbitrary script changes, inadequate post production, and cavalier recutting of the final film. Nobody who had a choice made a picture at Metro, but then we didn’t have a choice. Dan Melcnick… assured [us]… that we would not be subjected to the usual MGM treatment. In large part, he made good on that promise.”*
And to think the film, Westworld was shot in only 30 days. 


Considering the comparison of today’s blockbuster productions, it was quite an accomplishment, to say the least. However, the overall success of Westworld came in two stages. After the original release in 1973, the box offices recorded over 4 million dollars, while the second release in 1976 produced a whopping 7 million in sales. Michael Crichton had made his mark and soon became famous throughout the film industry as an accomplished screenwriter and worldwide novelist. 


When I finally had the chance to watch Westworld, I was at awe over Yul Brynner’s performance, the plot and how my addiction for science-fiction was completely satisfied. As far back as I can remember, I’ve had this unconscionable thirst for scifi thrillers. 

It’s in my blood.

During this time in my life, I couldn’t afford to see film premiers at the theatres, so I had no choice but to patiently wait until a movie presented itself on TV. In the summer of 1979, the opportunity presented itself, when I was getting ready for my two year college term in Kamloops, BC, training for an architectural draftsman. Having to travel from my home (Vernon, BC) to Kamloops every weekend, I soon became familiar with my tedious route. Halfway through my route, it wasn’t hard to noticed a small farm town in the middle of nowhere, named Westwold. Every time I traveled past through this quiet little unincorporated settlement, it seemed deserted. There were buildings, the little church and a school, but surprisingly I never saw any signs of life. 

It was an eerie feeling.

I never thought anymore about it until in the fall of 1979, when in September the TV producers would start off the new season introducing viewers to movies, finally released on television. With my constant thirst for science-fiction, I eagerly waited for the new TV release. Remembering the hype, I was pleasantly surprised to hear the showing of WESTWORLD

I was in heaven! 

As I watched the film, it became apparent I was awestruck by the storyline. In fact, weeks later, you could say I was in a state of euphoria. So much so, my routine visit past WESTWOLD turned into the most peculiar outcome. Taking on the usual corners ( as a speed demon) along the mountainous road with my little foreign car, ( a Mini-Austin, now known as a Cooper) my perspective of this little settlement changed forever! With a completely different mindset, my eyes quickly zeroed onto its first citizens, walking along the roadside, as if in a trance. 

Yes ! You’re right ! Exactly like Robots

My wild imagination took off like never before, as I imagined the citizens of WESTWOLD as humanoid androids. To this very day, I refer the small settlement of Westwold as WESTWORLD, where human-like robots have secretly taken over this slumbering western village, in the heart of the Thompson Okanagan region of British Columbia. 

My new prospective of WESTWORLD and its relationship to Westwold will always be with me, as I get ready to watch the much anticipated new TV Series, WESTWORLD, premiering on October 2. 2016. The pilot, featuring the wonderful Anthony Hopkins (as Robert Ford), the creator of Westwood, (a futuristic theme park to amuse its unaware guests) is sure to deliver one of the most thrilling science-fiction thrillers in this 21st century. 

Well, this is what I envision will happen,  Westworld – The New Reality.

Aftermath by Bari Demers

Sept 11, 2001 is a day everyone in the world will remember. 9/11 is the most heartbreaking tragic event in my lifetime. Today we remember all those who were lost from this unthinkable act of violence.

It has changed the world and mankind forever. 

This graphic art piece I did resembles the tragedy of all those who have lost love ones on 9/11. The unconscionable attacks against the United States of America is heartbreaking and brings me tears of sorrow. My heart aches for the families and children who will never see their loved ones again. 

For all those souls lost to defend the United States of America and to uphold the constitution and our freedom, we honour your sacrifice and service. 
In Canada and the rest of the world, we grieve for your loss, and stand beside you as a whole nation who believe in your principles of freedom; freedom of choice, freedom of expression and freedom to live without fear. 

We the people…means so much to me personally. 

I can NOT express in words how I feel about this sad sad day in history, Sept 11, 2001. My condolences to all the families.

Bennu Asteroid – Will it impact Earth? 

Photo by NASA – Click on image for more…

As we already know, The Osiris Satellite [ OSIRIS-REx ] was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida yesterday.   Atlas V 411 successfully sent OSIRIS-REx into orbit with a target in mind – Asteroid Bennu. 

Hooray NASA

We also know Bennu is B-type asteroid with a ~500 meter diameter. It completes an orbit around the Sun every 436.604 days (1.2 years) and every 6 years comes very close to Earth, within 0.002 AU.*

According to NASA, Bennu is referred to as one of closest asteroids to Earth which is called Near-Earth Objects (NEOs).

Photo by NASA

What’s really interesting, Bennu has a high probability of impacting Earth in approximately the year 2173. It’s not clear if NASA scientists will prevent a collision from happening, but they will have the opportunity to learn more about the asteroid, when OSIRIS-REx returns in 7 years.

150 years is a long time to worry about just one asteroid, but it’s hazardous orbit towards Earth is concerning, nevertheless.

Maybe by then, NASA scientists will come up with a solution to avoid certain disaster on Earth. As quote by NASA, “Bennu’s size, primitive composition, and potentially hazardous orbit make it one of the most fascinating and accessible NEOs … and the ideal OSIRIS-REx target asteroid.” 

We’ll see what happens in the late 22nd century.  

By then, I’m figuring we should have a small colony on Mars, which might mean the difference between life or death, for all of mankind. Mars may so happen to become the savour of the whole human race.  

It’s imperative we get the human race into space soon ! 

Time to start thinking of other planets to colonize before it’s too late, like our ancestors.

  Stephen Hawking warned: Flee Earth before it’s too late in his speech earlier this year saying,” I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be in space. … It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster on planet earth in the next hundred years, let alone in the next thousand or million,” Hawking told digital forum the Big Think. “The human race shouldn’t have all its eggs in one basket, or on one planet. Let’s hope we can avoid dropping the basket until we have spread the load.”

It’s remarkable to understand NASA has spent billions to understand more about this asteroid and possible information on the origin of life. To read between the lines, it’s clear scientists are very concerned. 

As stated in the Asteroid Mission OSIRIS-REx’s key science main objectives include:

  • Return and analyze a sample of Bennu’s surface
  • Map the asteroid (cool to see Canadian scientists were involved with this technology)
  • Document the sample site
  • Measure the orbit deviation caused by non-gravitational forces (the Yarkovsky effect)
  • Compare observations at the asteroid to ground-based observations.

In 2018, OSIRIS-REx will approach Bennu and take the necessary samples and return return back to Earth on September 2023, giving us 150 years to decided what we’ll do in the year 2173. 


This asteroid is just one of many, assigned with a close trajectory towards Earth, or referred to as Near-Earth Objects (NEOs). In fact, NASA is calling on all amateur astronomers to help in the search of impending asteroids. 

It’s called ***Target Asteroids

I realize our generation or the next five generations will most likely NOT be around to see the outcome, but it’s a stern reminder to get off our butts and put everything we have into the Space Program, before we become a statistic, like the dinosaurs.  

Bennu Asteriod – Will it impact Earth?  Well, we have 150 years to find out 😱

Live Long and Prosper

: As it’s an amazing accomplishment by NASA scientists, we must not forget …” Bennu is also one of the most potentially hazardous asteroids, as it has a relatively high probability of impacting the Earth late in the 22nd century.”

Star Trek – 50 Years 

“Star Trek the Official Guide to Our Universe: The True Science Behind the Starship Voyages” by Andrew Fazekas.

Star Trek 50 year anniversary and still going strong. We all know how the real science relates to science fiction since 1966. I consider myself a Star Trek fan, following every TV episode and movie, since it started. 

I’m also interested in “Star Trek the Official Guide to Our Universe: The True Science Behind the Starship Voyages” by Andrew Fazekas.  It sounds amazing ! 

Relating the true science from science fiction is certainly what I look forward to.

Here I am writing on my iPad, just one of many inspirations from Star Trek. Remember the first Star Trek pilot episode, “The Cage”, in January 1965, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike, Majel Barrett as Number One, and Leonard Nimoy as Spock? The moment the doors to the bridge opened up automatically? Supermarkets across the world were so intrigue with that piece of science fiction, engineers made it happen in real life. So next time you go to your favourite grocery store and pass by the automated sliding glass doors, just remember where the idea originated. 

We may never see warp drive or teleportation but it may closely resemble it in our future. 

I wrote a piece about teleportation and how’s it pretty much impossible…unless we sent a hologram of us to the farthest M5 planet OR manipulate human molecules into what is called,” The Floating Molecules”. This controversial procedure can change the human molecular composition into floating translucent molecules, finally making teleportation a reality.

Ever since I can remember, I would draw detailed spaceships, showing the booster engines in the back and an astronaut up front, flying across the universe. This was way before Star Trek or Lost in Space became a regular TV series. When my uncle took me to see the matinee, “War of the World’s”, I was in heaven ! Oh, the thought of another alien species visiting earth turned my life around. I started asking questions. Where did we come from? Is it possible Aliens have visit us before ? 

When I learn how to read, I looked everywhere for science fiction material. 
Soon, I was writing my own. Today isn’t any different, my imagination runs wild with storyline after storyline. It’s hard to keep up to my imagination, as writing takes time and perseverance. Maybe in the future, we will be able to transform our imagination into a hologram ; the possibilities are endless!

When in Jr High School ( Fulton, Vernon, BC) I wrote a short story about teleportation in my English class, for no other then my English teacher named, Mr English. Go figure! He so happened to a Science teacher with other classes. When he read my piece of material, he was mad ! He scolded me, telling me teleportation is complete rubbish, and I should concentrate on the science, before I tackle science fiction. Confused by his outrage, rereading my story, it was evident the science of hologram theory was a possibility. Of course, he never could envision it and proceeded to give me a C minus. 

This unpleasant experience hit home and made me even more determined then before.

Before you knew, I made absolutely sure the science was behind the science fiction, reading every science magazine I could get my hands on. I kept writing and have never looked back since. In my later years I turned to screenplays, just because I imagined my script turning into a blockbuster movie. That’s when I started my own website called James Montana Scripts, featuring my screenplay, “Black Angels“. 

The journey from drawing to writing has always been a part of my life, and so has Star Trek. If you’re enthusiastic as I am, then please read my stories on WordPress and Blogger. And join me on Twitter

Here’s some examples:

Live Long and Prosper!

It was sad to hear the passing of Leonard Nimoy – Star Treks legendary Science Officer Mr Spock, our beloved Vulcan. So, of course, I had to write about my feelings. 

Congratulations Star Trek for 50 years and I can only wish our great great great great grandchildren will look back and remember the day Star Trek gave us science fiction and scientists turned it into reality. No doubt they will think we lived in the stone ages.

NOTE : I’m always asked why I present my writing in the above format.  It’s not the correct format. The reason is, most viewers are bombarded by so much information on the Internet, the attention span is very short.  So, to compensate for this, I break up my article and stories into quick readable blocks of information.  For example, it’s rare readers will take the time to read this footnote.  Cheers!

Cabin vs Tiny Home – the hidden costs 

Photo by Knotty Pine Cabins – click on photo

As most writers can attest to, I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel, when it comes to an income. That said, I’m also heading into retirement. This doesn’t mean I will stop what I love to do (writing stories or screenplays) but it’s important to plan ahead.  

Recently, I’ve been weighing out the option of living in a Tiny Home, such as a prefab cabin. 

In Canada, building a cabin or a tiny home with freehold land sounds like a lucrative opportunity. Owning your own property with a cabin nestled in the forest is something I look forward to everyday. The thought of writing my screenplays in seclusion from the hustle and bustle of a city, appeals to my sanity. But the enormous cost could set you back around $500,000 in Canadian currency. But, I’m resilient in making this cabin project the fraction of the cost then your average home on a typical acreage. It’s a feasible possibility, if you’re willing to go small.

In other words, think Tiny Homes. 

Today’s real estate costs of any house in the Canadian market is sure to cost from $400,000 to over millions, depending on your location. But, if you’re ready to downsize there are other affordable options. Tiny homes sound good, but be vigilant and watch out for those hidden costs, sure to rob your pockets of every last penny you own.  

Or worse, coming up short!

Another hurdle we all face is a mortgage. Let’s face it. Unless you’re frugal with your money or just plain wealthy, most of us have some kind of mortgage.  

It’s a reality in life. 

Most Canadians struggle with juggling living expenses, taxes, car payments and a hefty mortgage, robbing their income with very little left. To add insult to injury, Canadian living costs are 25 percent higher, then say, our neighbours in United States. Today, younger folks and retirees are seriously looking into other means of ownership without the burden of taking their first-born child as collateral. 

In my early career, I was an architectural drafting technologist.  

Back then, we did domestic cookie-cutter homes with the basic site plans. Back then a typical home would sell for around $60,000. The cost since then has soared to unattainable prices from $400,000 and up. Today’s market is screaming for affordable housing project, allowing hard working Canadians to buy a reasonable priced home, without leaving them Lonnie-less. ( Lonnie is our dollar. I know it’s crazy). With Vancouver and Toronto house prices going through the roof, most Canadians can’t afford a home anymore. 


Backed-to-the-wall, the younger generation are seriously considering their own revolution against the cost of real estate, by accepting the lifestyle of living in a smaller square foot home. Square footage typically from only 100 to 500 sq ft.

In effect… The Tiny Housing Revolution has started ! 

There’s a whole new Housing Revolution going on. Municipalities, Banks and the Canadian government may be forced to make changes, honouring the people’s choice. And, if the Bank of Canada and government are smart, they will realize the overall benefits for all Canadians. It will mean, more of the population will be able to afford their own home with the possibility of freehold property. With a smaller mortgage, Canadians will have that extra money to keep our economy strong, giving folks ownership and respect with dignity. 

As for me, with retirement here, the wolf is knocking on the door.

With downsizing in the projected future and moving back home, I will require a lot of creative thinking, in order for my wife and I to be able to live affordably. I started looking into the reality of owning a small piece of land with a cabin on it, for the fraction of the cost of today’s home. Anyone on retirement (even with RRSP’s and the Canadian Pension) will understand, most will live with a tight income from $25,000 – $35,000 annually ( I’m talking for the average senior citizen). 

Hating last minute surprises, it was essential for me to plan ahead. 

I decided to breakdown all the costs, including the unforeseeable hidden costs. With scouting the Internet and phoning perspective companies, be it contractors or prefab home developers, it was essential to plan two different scenarios. In this blog, we’ll talk about CABINS KITS VERSES TINY HOMES. For statistics purposes, I will assume most struggling retirees have an annual income of $25,000. Some may have to dip into their RRSP’s or taxable savings, but this scenario will be our base income projection. 

Let’s begin with : 


NOTE : These are today’s prices as of 2016. We’re also on the assumption you do NOT have any construction experience. In other words, you rely on EXPERIENCED CONTRACTORS or carpenters. 


I did a lot of research in buying cabins, from kits, park model homes to the impressive new concept, the NOMAD micro homes ( I’ll talk about the NOMAD later on). With that said, I am working on the prices by Knotty Pine Cabins, after much research. 

It’s important to do your research and check apples to apples. 

If by chance you know a company selling cabins ( in Canada) at a cheaper price, be sure you include the options required below, before you let me know.  

Otherwise, let’s begin. 

Looking at the CABIN’S MAIN FLOOR PLAN below (Note: ignore the fact the cabin is a 12′ X 24′ Series. We are going to lower our costs by using a 12 Ft WIDE SERIES : 12′ × 20′ but basically the same floor plan with loft will be the same, including the deck and front roof extension). 

Photo by Knotty Pine Cabins – click on photo


A ) A cabin kit size at 12 Ft WIDE SERIES : 12′ × 20 – The basic cost starts at $15,200.  

B) Add-ons would include Deck & Rail kit at $1650

C) 4ft Front Roof Extension at $1100/ 12′ × 8′ 

D) Floor and Roof Insulation Kit at $1,760

E) Floor Kit w/ treated skids $1870

F) Interior Wall and Pine Interior Insulation 12′ × 20′ at $4,005 

G) Windows and Doors: (NOTE: Window/Door pricing includes precut openings for wall panels) I’m figuring on one Window 24″ × 24″ at a cost of $475 each, plus 3 Windows at 36″ × 36″ at a cost $525 each. Overall total cost for Windows = $2050.

H) One Solid Entrance Door = $ 675.

I) One Inside Wall Partitions: 8 ft Length cost at $1000.

SUBTOTAL FOR CABIN KIT INCLUDING TAX and Delivery Charges ( Not including assembly or unloaded from truck) = $ 32,324

I’m also going on the assumption you require an experienced carpenter or contractor to put the CABIN KIT together.

ADD ON ADDITION COST = $5000. If you’re a handyman, your cost is much lower. (It’s possible to find cheaper labour. Put an ad on line to find a carpenter who’s willing to cut costs for you. But, be careful! Ask for references and photos of jobs he or she has worked on previously). 


ADD ON : Architectural Drawing Plans (necessary for all permits) = $1500

SUBTOTAL = $38,824   

OK – Now we must think about excavation of your lot. That means clearing an area for your cabin and levelling it, in order to place on cabin on. It also means to set your cabin on level concrete piles to structurally hold the weight of the cabin structure. Believe or not finding a clear excavation cost was extremely difficult to find, as it all depends on your raw land and where it’s located. SO – after painstakingly phoning excavation contractors in the area ( Okanagan Valley) I have to conclude the price of excavation can run as much as $10,000. This is just a safe estimate and I really think you can excavate with concrete pilings for $3000. BUT – lets be safe instead of sorry. 


OK – Lets NOT forget surveying costs including municipal permits, can run you an extra $5000 (over budget on purpose) Reality could be around $2500, depending on the municipality and lot. So let’s use $2500 as a guideline for starting price.


NEXT – Utilities from lot line to your cabin cost. This is just the water and electricity, NOT including sewage hookup. Reason is, we will use a compost toilet, which will run you $1500. Each hookup of water and plumbing hookup, electrical and indoor electric finishing is $10,000. AND, once again, this is in extreme cases. You most likely will get away with a $5000 cost for both. Always use professionals, never cheap out thinking you can have a handyman to finish the job. Municipalities require a permit, just for this reason. Permits keep everyone honest and it’s done right and safe ! We will use $5000 as the starting price.


NOW – Lets add the cost of lot or small land = $40,000

GRAND TOTAL OF CABIN WITH LOT = $ 96,324.00 includes the following: 

Complete Cabin structure with insulation, flooring, roof, windows, door, over hang roof extension, loft, interior walls including wall insulation and deck with rail kit. A 0.45 aclunder 1 acre of raw land (property in the Okanagan Valley) Freehold (meaning you own the land). Includes Excavation BUT here’s where you can save money if using the NOMAD system. 

ADD ON Appliances brings it to $107,000 – ALL IN. 

WE are on the assumption you own your furniture. AND bathroom facilities are also NOT included, as mentioned above. Wall-socket fixtures are included in the electrical hookup, as is plumbing included in the water hookup. Realistically, planning ahead you could save yourself $10,000 if you hunt for the best possible price.




HOOKUPS : $5000
TOTAL = $100,000 

NOW – Let’s look at NOMAD

NOMAD is the most modern innovative design I’ve seen so far (for Tiny Home concepts) in the architectural community. Nomad company operates in Vancouver, BC with a team of professionals. The streamline use of square footage is remarkable, to say the least. 

Photo by Nomad Micro Homes – click on photo


Designer Ian Kent has taken the Tiny Homes concept to the next level. If you can compromise with limited space, it’s indeed a revolutionary streamline of space used. He has taken a 10.5′ x 10.5′ ​ (3.2m x 3.2m) unit called NOMAD utilizing every square inch of space without compromising the need for your living requirements, such as a bathroom, living room, a top loft bed with storage and a European kitchen. 

The best part? 

You can grow, adding on as many cubes you’ll need in the future. 
It’s perfect for everyone concerned, including retirees and students. As for a family, the opportunities are endless to make a comfortable living for your whole family. All for a fraction of the cost. A NOMAD option, known as LIVE, provides a kitchen, bathroom, exterior/interior finishes, plumbing fixtures, loft and light fixtures for a competitive Tiny Home price at $28,000. 

A far cry from the rest of the competition, for sure! 

The other great incentive with NOMAD, (in my municipal) because it’s only 10 ft X 10 feet, you don’t need permits (This may differ, depending on your location). It looks easy to assemble, but still requires hookup requirements by a certified electrician and plumber. Prefect idea for your mother-in-law suite or living anywhere in the world. As for me, it’s a serious contender to place on my forest property in the Okanagan Valley. It has the ability to be completely off-grid if you like. The options are endless! 


Cost of LIVE NOMAD = $28,000 does NOT include taxes and shipping.  

Taxes at 5% = $1400

Delivery Charge = $1600
SUBTOTAL = $31,000 
EXCAVATION: Minimal excavation required ( See why HERE ) cost = $1500 at most.
PROPERTY = $40,000 ( This will never change) 



GRAND TOTAL = $84,500
  If you like the NOMAD to become totally OFF-GRID you can add-on $20,000.


A) Cabin with lot = $90,000 minimal, but can be $110,000 
B) NOMAD micro home with lot = $84,500 
             Each cost is comparable to the other 


Pro : The cabin option is more square footage with a cosy outdoor home. The cabin provides exterior/interior finishes, insulation, a loft and front deck with overhang. The cabins by Knotty Pine look sharp! 

: Costs more. Even though there’s a place for the bathroom, you must place in the ALL the fixtures. All appliances are an extra cost above the basic cabin price. All light fixture are extra, including outside fixtures. 

Pro: NOMAD micro homes “LIVE” provides a kitchen, a bathroom, exterior/interior finishes, plumbing fixtures, loft and light fixtures. Can be built and shipped anywhere in the world.

: Very little space. Are you ready and willing to live in a 10 ft X 10 ft unit? 


Overall, each scenario above have an attractive possibility, at a fraction of the cost for your average home. Most Tiny Homes (even on trailers) will have a starting cost of $30,000 and up. It all comes down to your lifestyle and how much are you going to sacrifice.  

If you have a feasible option, not mentioned above, I would love to hear it. Or maybe you found a cheaper price I’m not aware of, preferably in British Columbia ? Whatever may be the case, I’m always open to cost effective prices. Happy building!
