Music Monday – “I wish I had carved my bad poetry/Into your back while you were asleep/A little something to remind you of me/A little something for her to hold on to”

I’m fascinated by coincidences and have had a few recently… Went to a housewarming party this weekend and a guy mentions the completely random fact that they ended up sitting next to a previous owner of their Regina home in a bar in Saskatoon, never having met him before! The same housewarming party was hosted […]

Friday Fun Link – What Screams Upper Middle Class?

[Edit: This post started as a way for me to share what I thought was an interesting Reddit post.  But then I had the idea to use it to talk about whether I found it interesting was because I identified – and was slightly embarrassed by – many of the points it raised. Re-reading this […]

Julie Payette Reminds Us We Live In A Universe Based On Fact, Not Opinion

Canada’s new Governor-General (and former astronaut) Julie Payette, created some controversy after her recent remarks at a science conference where she pointed out the absurdity of politicians still using their personal opinions to debate indisputable scientific facts such as the reality of climate change and the lack of similar evidence for beliefs such as astrology. […]

UFC 217 Might Be Best MMA PPV of All-Time?

I don’t pay a lot of attention to UFC for the most part unless it’s a big name or a big fight or when my love of pro wrestling intersects with the world of “real” fighting via someone like Brock Lesnar or CM Punk participating. And I rarely to never watch the live PPVs, usually […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – At Least They Didn’t Lose Their House In Transit (Fall 2005)

I was looking through Facebook earlier this week when I saw a story that was almost sounded like the ultimate Halloween prank – a guy came home to his farm just outside Regina to find an abandoned ready-to-move house, still on a trailer but with no semi, no drivers and no note! He posted some […]

Friday Fun Link – Country Corner Donuts (and the Value of Immigrants) #yqr

I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a post by the good folks at Rebellion Brewing talking about a nearby donut shop which they frequent. (I love seeing locally owned businesses supporting each other like this!) That led me to a YouTube video of the donut shop’s owner which reinforced my strong belief that […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The Premier of Mexico? (February 2017)

It’s funny how things swirl and combine in unexpected ways. I haven’t written a lot about the ongoing Sask NDP Leadership Race (yet) and I haven’t posted a lot about the Mexican resort we’re planning to go to next February (yet). But, as I think back to the Mexican resort we visited last February, I can’t […]

Friday Fun Link – People Share Their Favourite Work Email Snark Phrases

I admit to both sending and receiving many of these over the years. 🙂

More background about what’s become my album of the summer…  

Music Monday – “So I’m a free enterprising socialist/Gonna take my cut and share the rest/Left wing as the right wing gets/I’ll vote ’em in for the test”

Really enjoying Blake Berglund on my “Saskatchewan-artists-only” playlist at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. (I’m a bit late to the game but in looking more into Berglund for this post, I see that he’s just completed a personal challenge to sell 1000 copies of his albums in the month of May, mostly through […]
