First Lines From My First Blog Post In Every Month of 2017

This is one of my favourite posts of the year.  I love how it randomly ends up capturing so many highlights of the year, personal and otherwise… January – “Thirty Canadian artists playing covers of thirty Tragically Hip songs to celebrate thirty years of the Hip as part of a 4-hour radio special on the first […]

Friday Fun Link – Year End “Best of” Lists

Here’s a few year end “Best of” lists for your reading pleasure.

A Few Post-Christmas Thoughts

I can’t find it now but I have a memory that in December 2011, I posted a screen grab of a weather forecast showing +4 for Dec 24, Dec 25 & Dec. 26.  (Here’s one from around the same time on the same subject.)  At any rate, it’s been brutally cold this week and I’m […]

[SPOILER ALERT] 10 Things I Liked (And 10 Things I Didn’t) About “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

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 the reason I found it interesting was because I identified – and was slightly embarrassed by – many of the points it raised? […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – 10 Reasons I Drive A 10 Year Old Car

So, this is a bit of a different take on “Throwback Thursday” but since my car is in the shop right now after being rear-ended about a month and a half ago (and since I’m driving around a brand new rental with all the newest features – backup camera!  Bluetooth connectivity!  Heated seats that actually work!)
