Some Random Thoughts From #rcmpmusicalride in #yqr

A group of eight of us were very excited to take in the “Canada 150” Edition of the RCMP Musical Ride last night, not least of which because Shea’s cousin’s husband is an RCMP member who has been training for the last couple years so that he could be riding in the Tattoo for this […]

No @ChickfilA For You Thanks To @TD_Canada Text Alerts!

About a year and a half ago, my credit card got compromised.  I don’t think I blogged about it but I posted this on Facebook at the time in response to a post by someone else who said their card got compromised: I just had my first encounter with credit card fraud too.  Early the […]

Saturday Snap – Me at @saskbookawards 2017 (and Some Random Thoughts On The Awards, Life, and How I Got There)

So, I once again attended the Sask Book Awards tonight. Here are a few random thoughts… Was flying solo tonight as Shea decided to take advantage of the great weather and her parents (her mom works shift work) being off to take the kids and go to Weyburn for the weekend. Yes, I wore an olive […]

Secular Sunday – Coca Cola Died For Your Sins? (Happy Easter!)

As a slight break from non-stop “Save the Library” posts lately, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the incredible crassness of this grocery store Easter display (which I saw on Reddit and I think is from somewhere in the US.) I’m not religious but even I went, “Wow?  Really??”  (Not the first time Easter […]

“You got no right to take my joy/I want it back” #DearSask Protest Tribute Video #yqr #yxe #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries @saskmla @premierbradwall

I made a quick video of some of the highlights from the DEARSask protests that happened on Friday.  These read-ins saw nearly 6000 people at 85 sites across the province protesting the drastic cuts to the province’s public libraries. My biggest problem making this video?  Way too many pictures to choose from! So this video includes a […]

#skpoli #SaveSKLibraries Random Thoughts on Watching The Sausage Get Made at the Sask Legislature

So on Monday, I heard that some library colleagues from the Palliser Regional Library system who’d been laid off were going to be at the Sask Legislature.  Since it was my day off, I decided to tag along. I was able to join them in the NDP’s Caucus Office for a while before the afternoon […]

Some Random Thoughts on #skbudget #skpoli

Brad Wall and his Sask Party buddies released their latest budget today and depending on the commentator you’re reading, it was either (borderline) cruel, cruel & unusual or a bloodbath. Some thoughts… Who goes through a massive resource boom and ends up raising PST?  If you said the NDP, you’d be brainwashed wrong.  That decision to […]

Music Monday – “Now why don’t you look down/To where your feet is planted/That U.S. soil that makes you take shit for granted/If not for Santa Ana, just to let you know/That where your feet are planted would be México”

I heard this song on the TV when we were in Mexico in 2003 and even without understanding (most of) the lyrics, it struck me as something very political and meaningful which has only become more relevant in light of Trump’s desire to build a border wall with Mexico. At the time, I jotted enough of the lyrics […]
