Saturday Snap – In the Car Wash

Weird to be going through the car wash in February in Saskatchewan on a +5 day but is there anything that makes you happier as a kid?

Music Monday – “Here is where I feel it/Funny how it’s/Funny how it’s here.”

Congrats to Ryan Meili on winning the SK NDP nomination to be the candidate for Saskatoon-Meewasin last night. Here’s a video I made seven (!) years ago when he was running in a different race… “Canadian Skye” – Spirit of the West

Do You Live in the Saskatoon-Meewasin Constituency? #skpoli

Ryan Meili, a guy you might have heard of on this blog once or twice before, is running to become the Saskatchewan NDP’s candidate for the Saskatoon-Meewasin riding in an upcoming by-election. The nomination meeting is next Monday night. If you live in the constituency and think that Saskatchewan’s heading in the wrong direction under Brad Wall […]

Music Monday – “Old woman, back bent like a willow/Fingers grace the dirt to catch the weeds/You could call her a throwback, Say we know better/It’s all those little lies we tell ourselves so we can sleep.”

This musician lives in my hometown but I somehow only managed to hear about her just before Christmas… “Ghost Highway” – Kara Golemba

Five Star @SparkleTour #yqr @ctvregina

Thanks to the good folks at SparkleTour.ca, it’s super-easy for anyone in Regina to plot out a tour of some of the best light displays our city has to offer – you can find the ones nearest you or, as we did tonight, plot a route to all of the ones that have achieved a […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Ryan Meili Is Running (April 2009)

Got a pretty exciting early Christmas present today with Ryan Meili’s announcement that he’ll be seeking the nomination in a by-election in Saskatoon-Meewasin. Here’s a photo from Ryan’s announcement of his Sask NDP leadership campaign in Regina in April 2009…

Saturday Snap – My Favourite Christmas Tradition?

One of Shea’s and my Christmas traditions is that we go out for lunch together without kids (usually) sometime in December to a place where we can have a good meal and possibly a pint or other refreshing beverage as well. We were both off yesterday so decided to visit the Rochdale Leopold’s (I’d been before […]

Saturday Snap – Great Christmas Light Display on Sangster Blvd #yqr

We’re pretty lucky that this house is about a block from our house.  And doubly lucky because the unseasonably warm weather allowed us to walk over in light jackets to check it out the other night. That let us hear the outside speakers and although this angle doesn’t show it, the kids also loved seeing […]

Saturday Snap – How To Take Maximum Advantage of An Unseasonably Warm Saturday in mid-November? #yqr

There’s lots of possibilities but these folks win by having a yard sale!

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – “I’m Voting Obama” (November 2012)

Happier times… And when Cam Broten beat Ryan Meili by 44 votes out of thousands cast after Ryan was widely expected to win, I learned the hard way that you can never count someone out. I never thought Trump could beat Clinton but I never assumed it was a sure thing either.  In fact, I […]
