Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Las Vegas County Jail

After spending a lot of time this week with Shea’s cousin’s husband who’s an RCMP officer and a member of the Musical Ride, I thought it was important to note what this side of the family gets up to! 😉

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Some Strategic Advice for @ryanmeili As He Runs For #skndpldr For The Third Time #skpoli

Ryan Meili announced today that he will once again run for the leadership of the Saskatchewan NDP. He ran in 2009 and essentially came out of nowhere to finish second, taking 45% of the final vote.  His slogan was “Our Future Together”. He ran again in 2013 and lost by less than a single percentage […]

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 […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Sask Library Association Conference (somewhere between 1997-2001) #saskla2017

I’m at the Saskatchewan Library Association Conference in Waskesiu right now. It’s the 75th Anniversary of SLA and as part of the anniversary celebration, they have a photo album which includes this photo of me on a panel discussion at a previous SLA. This would have been when I worked for the Sask Publishers Group. […]

Throwback Thursday – SILS Launch Preparations (Feb 2010) #skpoli #SavedSKLibraries #saveSKLibraries

Like I said yesterday, I’ll probably stop tagging every post with #skpoli #saveSKLibraries fairly soon.  But in the meantime, I have ideas for at least a couple more posts in the hopper though. For instance, I came across this picture and thought it was a nice “full circle” picture – a shot from February 2010 […]

#tbt – “Library Cuts Aren’t About Right vs. Left, They’re About Right vs. Wrong” #skpoli #saveSKLibraries @premierbradwall @saskmla

Good news for library supporters across Saskatchewan today as Premier Brad Wall has asked Education Minister Don Morgan to review the cuts to libraries that were announced in the budget a month ago! Nothing is guaranteed from this review of course and libraries could end up with anything from a full restoration of funding, partial […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – 2007 #skpoli Responses Regarding Libraries #SaveSKLibraries

Sometimes I wonder why I keep this blog up, basically every day, for over ten years. Looking through some old blog posts recently, I realised that librarians are natural archivists and that’s part of the reason. For example, looking for something else, I realised that I’d posted the responses I got prior to the 2007 Saskatchewan […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – @SaskParty Provides $5.2 Million To Fund SILS Province-wide Library System (March 2010) #skpoli #saveSKLibraries

For Throwback Thursday, I’m posting an article I found in the Spring 2010 issue of the Saskatchewan Library Trustees Association newsletter – a happier time only seven short years ago when the province’s ten library systems joined together to form SILS, a province-wide public library consortium that was the culmination of decades of inter-provincial cooperation between […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Family Photo at Regina Public Library (June 2011)

When we did a family photo shoot in 2011, we decided to use downtown as our location which naturally led us to include a few shots around my employer, Regina Public Library.

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Just Another Night at the ER (June 2016)

When I had my really bad elbow infection last summer, I did a course of antibiotics but the infection didn’t go down at all. After a weekend in Saskatoon without any noticeable change, Shea suggested I go to the ER (well, after we called the Healthline because why would I trust my RN wife unless […]
