At the time, I never thought I’d leave AltaVista, which is retroactively recognized as the “Google of Its Time“.

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Another One Bites The Dust (February 2016)

I have no idea what the odds are but we’ve had not one but two vehicles written off after being hit while parked on the street in front of our house. The most recent was in February of 2016… I got rear ended again last week while stopped at a crosswalk but luckily, this time […]

Five Things I Wish We Bought For Our Seasonal Camp Site

Dollar Store Junk We’re spending a ridiculous amount each week on stuff that we use up quickly (glow sticks) […]

Last night, I looked back through all 10+ years of July 18 posts on this blog and I realised that I rarely post on my birthday. That’s probably a good thing – it shows I’m likely doing stuff in the real world instead of staring at a screen. 😉 For example, today I was out […]
