Music Monday – “My life’s a bit more colder/Dead wife is what I told her/Brass knife sinks into my shoulder/Oh babe don’t know what I’m gonna do”

It was a great way to kick off the New Year last night with Shea and I seeing a show at Casino Regina featuring Blake Berglund & Belle Plaine opening for The Dead South. All are great Saskatchewan artists but The Dead South are really hitting the big time – they’ve toured in Europe, won […]

“May Old Acquaintance Be Forgot”

Hopefully the new year will bring new leadership for the Sask NDP that will be able to build and grow the party in a way they couldn’t during the last leader’s tenure. 🙁

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Promoting “Library Behind The Scenes” on CTV (Two Weeks Ago)

Since I’m in the midst of a series of daily tweets about a big community event we’re having at my library branch this Saturday, I might as well double-up and use the same link I posted earlier today to also give me content for today’s #tbt blog post – namely, an appearance I did on […]

How To Butcher An Entire Cow: Every Cut of Meat Explained

Stumbled across this video on Reddit but thought it was an appropriate post as Shea informs me her and her parents are buying some farm-direct beef from her uncle. Yum!  

“Leadership Races Shouldn’t Be Spectator Sports” – Saskatoon Star Phoenix #skpoli #skndpldr

The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix had an editorial today that I couldn’t agree with more. Their point is that with two exciting, concurrent leadership races happening in each of the province’s main political parties, there’s no excuse for people to not spend $10 to buy a membership and have a lot more direct impact on either the […]

Music Monday – “She has tattooed tear drops/She don’t have to cry/Woman you won’t weep/Don’t you moan”

Always nice to get recommendations of bands you haven’t heard of from your patrons.  Here’s an interesting group I heard of today. From the band’s web site: The Stillhouse Poets are a roots duo from Regina, Saskatchewan, the heart of the Canadian prairies. Their influences are drawn deep from the musical well waters of the […]

Saturday Snap – Regina Downtown From Above

I’d won a free night at a local hotel at a staff supper earlier this year and we decided to use it this weekend…

Music Monday – “I grew up like my daddy did/My grandpa cleared this land/When I was five I walked the fence/While grandpa held my hand”

I don’t think I’ve ever posted this song for Music Monday but it’s one of my favourites of all-time. “Rain on the Scarecrow” – John Mellencamp Although I knew fairly early that I was never going to be a farmer (my standard line on the subject is that, growing up, I was more into books […]

At Least There Was One Unexpected Sports Victory Today ;-) #skpoli @ryanmeili @premierbradwall

In my quest to bring you all the hardest hitting political news, I have to note the somewhat shocking development that Ryan Meili beat noted Sports Cage call-in regular, “Brad from Swift Current” in sending out a timely tweet about the Roughriders’ tough loss today. It took “Brad from Swift Current” TWELVE full minutes before […]

Saturday Snap – Tobogganing

Enjoyed a day off last Monday by taking the kids tobogganing…
