Friday Fun Link – Ten Bands I’ve Seen (One Is A Lie) (And A Full Fred Eaglesmith Concert Video Too)

The latest meme to take over Facebook is “These Are 10 Bands I’ve Seen (One Is A Lie)“. There’s two main elements to the meme – one is you are defining your persona (are all your bands punk?  Hipster?  Goth?  Will people believe you saw some unhip band like the Beach Boys if ever other […]

10 Things Elwin Hermanson Could Learn At A Library #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries

Former Reform MP and first leader of the Sask Party, Elwin Hermanson, came out of the woodwork (there’s a Hermanson/hermit pun in there somewhere) recently to weigh in on the backlash to the Sask Party’s cuts to public libraries… It’s hard to know where to start with such a clueless and misinformed post.  But I’ll try… […]

Friday Fun Link – “Drop Everything and Read” Is Huge Success #skpoli #dearsask #saveSKLibraries #dearsk

  I honestly felt like I was going to break the “Angry” emoticon on Facebook the past two weeks – so much bad news about cuts to libraries but also to education, STC and other vital services coming across my news feed. Thankfully, today I got to have a much more enjoyable day, continually clicking the […]

Does Don Morgan Want You To Go To A Tax Lawyer For Your Divorce? #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries

  The Honourable Don Morgan QC has said that combining public libraries and school libraries could be part of the solution to the drastic funding cuts imposed on Saskatchewan public libraries in the recent budget. But Mr. Morgan must know that, just as all lawyers are not the same, all libraries are also not the […]

Saturday Snap – Kids Protesting Cuts to Saskatchewan Public Libraries #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries

Since the Saskatchewan Provincial Budget was announced last week, it’s pretty amazing to see the groundswell of protest at some of the most egregious and harmful cuts, especially to the province’s historic, innovative and world renowned public library system. For example, one Facebook group that sprang up is quickly approaching 4000 members after less than a […]

Saturday Snap – Snapchat Cuties

I’ve known SnapChat as a trendy app for young people who are avoiding parents/grandparents on Facebook but never really used it. Leave it to Pace to give me a tour of some of its functionality…

10 Final Thoughts As We Leave For Our All-Inclusive Trip to @sandoscaracol

I’ve written a lot about our upcoming trip, our past trips and I’m sure I’ll have more to say when we get back (Pace has started his own YouTube channel so him and I might try to make a kid-focused review of our resort since the only one I could find was a fairly short, […]

Saturday Snap – “Doritos Roulette” Challenge

One fun thing about being on holidays is that Pace and I spontaneously decided to go grab some late night snacks tonight after both Sasha and mom were in bed. He likes regular Doritos but decided to try a flavour that’s mostly regular Doritos but also has some super-hot ones mixed in (even though he’s […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – CalgaryPuck.com Scammer

Instead of my usual photo from the past, today’s post is unusual for a couple reasons – it’s a link to a web forum thread and I hadn’t seen it at the time it was originally posted a year ago.  In fact, I had no knowledge of it until recently. But I wanted to share […]

Radio Garden: Listen To The World

This should probably be a Friday Fun Link but it’s so cool, I wanted to share it right away. More than a streaming service, Radio Garden allows you to easily move from radio station to radio station around the world in a very intuitive, easy-to-use fashion (although Chrome has WebGL disabled by default so you’ll either […]
