Go Flames Go!

One of the worst playoff series ever – Flames outplayed Ducks in three games and are down 3-0. Go Flames Go! Meme courtesy of Pace who is a major hockey fan! 😉  

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The Best Haircut Ever?

When I was working for the Writers Guild of Alberta, we ended up getting into a “Who has the worst (and therefore best!) ID photo?” discussion during one pub night. A young writer I knew pulled out his student ID (which, tellingly, he still carried even though he was no longer a student) and I knew […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – CalgaryPuck.com Scammer

Instead of my usual photo from the past, today’s post is unusual for a couple reasons – it’s a link to a web forum thread and I hadn’t seen it at the time it was originally posted a year ago.  In fact, I had no knowledge of it until recently. But I wanted to share […]

Flames Are On A Great Run

After a crappy start to the season, the Flames have rebounded and gone 8-1-1 in their last ten games to leap back into playoff contention. They’re losing to the Lightning tonight (5-3 as I type this) so they might eat a loss after winning six in a row but it’s great that the season has […]

Friday Fun Link – Map of the World’s Rudest Place Names Is A Thing of Beauty

Inordinately proud I’ve been to some of these places.  

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Three Obituaries

Usually Throwback Thursday is for a photo from the old days but I’ve got a collection of obituaries I’ve come across recently that I thought I’d discuss instead since all three send me down memory lane in different ways… Author, publisher, businessman and activist, Mel Hurtig, passed away yesterday. I never got to meet him […]

Friday Fun Link – The Tallest Building Between Winnipeg and Calgary

…and we were hanging out on top of it earlier tonight (though I know it’s hard to tell how high we are from the angle of this photo!)

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Writers Guild of Alberta: The First Thirty Years

Saw this posted on Facebook today – a history of the Writers Guild of Alberta’s first 30 years including one passing mention of myself as one of a handful of people who worked as coordinators of the WGA’s Calgary office over the years.

2015 End of Year Memes: Two Tropical Trips, Election Wins & Loses, Campy Camper Camping

1. What did you do this year that you’d never done before? One of many secret shames in that I never learned how to downhill ski when I was growing up.  The first year we did a class trip to Mission Ridge in the Qu’Appelle Valley, I was injured and couldn’t go.  Then the next […]

Saturday Snap – Christmas Tree Update

We’ve had a blue and silver themed tree since we lived in Calgary when those colours fit into our condo’s young hip colour scheme. 😉 Now that we’re older and more mature, we thought it was finally time to change to a warmer colour scheme that better matched the colours in our home (also decorations were […]
