Swedish Death Cleaning

This article says people should start slowing getting rid of unnecessary household objects in their 50’s so as to not burden others when they eventually pass away. But given the amount of junk Shea and I have in our house, I think we should probably start now in our late 30’s (her), early 40’s (me) […]

YouTube Policy Changes – Censorship or Just Good Business Practice?

I think I’ve mentioned before that one of my highest marks in library school was, ironically, for the one class I took within our faculty but outside our department – a “History of Information” course that was offered through the journalism school.

The NHL Season Begins Tonight! (Moves Like Jagr)

He wasn’t in the lineup for the Flames opening night loss to the Oilers (well, to Connor McDavid who had a hat trick in a 3-0 victory).  But I’m pretty excited to see Jaromir Jagr in a Flames jersey! Watch this first if you don’t know why I’m excited… Then watch this to have a […]

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

Following up on yesterday’s post listing my five best garage sale finds for our seasonal camp site, here are some things I wish we had bought, either new or used, that we didn’t for one reason or another… 1. Ice Maker – Early in the year, I did the math and figured it would be cheaper […]

Five Best Garage Sale Finds For Our Seasonal Camp Site

I’m a garage sale addict at the best of times – who can resist finding something that someone else paid $20 or $100 for and being able to buy it for pennies on the dollar?  Plus part of the addiction is how random it is – like the slot machine in a casino, you never […]
