  Today marked the opening of the newest Regina Public Library branch, the Albert Branch which has moved into the Mâmawêyatitân Centre, an integrated facility offering numerous services to the community.

Birthday Blogging or Birthday Clogging?

Last night, I looked back through all 10+ years of July 18 posts on this blog and I realised that I rarely post on my birthday. That’s probably a good thing – it shows I’m likely doing stuff in the real world instead of staring at a screen. 😉 For example, today I was out […]

A Good Recurring Camping Injury To Have?

Every single weekend when we get back from our seasonal site on Sunday night, I feel like my legs are on fire from all the walking, biking, hiking, swimming and assorted heavy lifting I’ve done over the weekend (and no, I’m not just counting all the beer cans I’ve lifted to my mouth as “heavy […]

I got my first iPhone 3GS around 2009 – I was too cheap to buy one even […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Sk8r Boi (April 2012)

Pace is really into skateboarding now so it was interesting to come across this picture from when he was five which is probably the first time he ever tried out a skateboard. This was taken in the backyard of one of Shea’s friends whose husband is also really into skateboarding and other extreme sports.

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 […]
