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 […]

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 […]

10 Random Thoughts After Attending One Night and One Day of #skndpldr Convention #skpoli

I’ve only written a couple things about the current Sask NDP leadership race since the last race ended in 2013. But since Shea and I went to Ryan Meili’s hospitality suite on Friday night (where a few people stroked my ego by asking if I’d be blogging about the race this time) and we also went […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Mexican Beach Wedding (February 2003)

So, for “family movie night” last weekend, Shea and I decided to hook up the video camera we bought back ~2002 but have rarely used lately (“Hey kids, that big boxy thing is what an iPhone used to look like!”) to show the kids our wedding video from Mexico in 2003. Pace watched about five […]

Shea asked for a glass of wine last night and a garden carrot. I obliged…

Friday Fun Link – 24 Glorious Ways To Drink More Tequila

Saturday Snap – Blushing Bride Wine

Cleaned out our basement store room the other day and found this cool gift we got for our wedding from a relative who works as a graphic designer. Hard to believe that next March will be our 15th wedding anniversary and we’ll once again be back in the Mayan Riviera to celebrate.  Might even have […]

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 […]

Saturday Snap – Martha Stewart?

Shea’s channeling her inner Martha Stewart for a Thanksgiving center piece this year (though the fact that our plates appear to be stolen from a 1970’s Chinese restaurant sort of cancels the effect!) 😉
