Throwback Thursday – #tbt – “We’ve Woken Up This Party!” @ryanmeili 2013 Video #skndpldr #skpoli

This is a video I made in the lead-up to the 2013 Sask NDP Leadership Vote. And honestly, do I detect an echo? So many of the things that Ryan led in during in the last leadership race are areas where he’s once again leading in – fundraising, “fun”raising, engaging members, online engagement, etc. etc. etc. […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Do #skndpldr Candidates Make The Grade? #skpoli (May 2017)

I was Googling around looking for something else the other day and stumbled upon this article from Global News from after the Spring Session of the Legislature last May where Global gave letter grades to some of the most high profile Ministers and MLA’s in both parties. I took away a few things from this article: […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Grand Palladium, Dominican Republic (February 2015)

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – @ryanmeili TEDxRegina Talk (May 2012) #skpoli #skndpldr

If you’re new to the NDP and/or legitimately trying to decide who’s the best choice for Leader out of Ryan Meili and Trent Wotherspoon, the TED Talk that Ryan gave at the University of Regina in 2012 is probably the quickest and easiest way to get a sense of who Ryan is, what he stands […]

Friday Fun Link – As The Deadline for #skndpldr Membership Sales Hits, It’s Time For A Throwback @ryanmeili Jam :-)

This post is one part #MusicMonday, one part #ThrowbackThursday and one part #FridayFunLink. But since the deadline for Sask NDP membership sales is only a few minutes away, it’s time for everybody who’s worked so hard over the past few months to relax, unwind, have a cup of herbal tea and enjoy the evening. Then […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – @ryanmeili Embraces Latest in “Poli-Techs” Once Again With Facebook Live Event #skpoli #skndpldr

Since he first ran for the leadership of the Sask NDP nearly a decade ago, Ryan Meili has been incredibly adept at harnessing new technologies to achieve political goals. In 2009, he ran Canada’s first-ever political “money bomb” fundraiser which was a huge success, raising (if memory serves) something like 1/6 of all the money Ryan […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Go Flames Go! (February 2008)

The Flames won their fifth game in a row tonight to get back into a playoff position (technically, that happened last game which they also won.) Anyhow, I came across this old picture of Pace climbing on his grandparents’ air hockey table and thought that was sorta related to tonight’s good news…

Friday Fun Link – Merriam-Webster “Time Traveller” Tells You What Words Were Coined The Year You Were Born

…or any year you enter for that matter.  (h/t to library school colleague, ML)

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Pace Sees The *Real* Santa!

Pace has seen the *real* Santa (not those fake mall ones!) three times – once when Santa came to Grandpa and Grandma Hammond’s on Christmas Eve when Pace was probably around two or three years old.  (Coincidentally, that Santa had the same eyeglass frames as a neighbour down the street.) 😉 Once at our house […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – When A Garbage Can Is A Tasty Gift (December 2007)

Pace thought so anyhow…
