A McReview of the New McDonalds “Create Your Taste” Burger Option #yqr

So, to celebrate the first day of school, we decided to take Pace to McDonalds for supper. I’d forgotten that Regina’s Rochdale McDonalds location (and perhaps others in the city?) have installed the new “Build Your Taste” machines which are like giant iPad-like, self-serve touchscreen machines. I’m sure we could’ve figured it out but a […]

It’s another indictment of the Conservatives that having a cabinet where such commonplace things such as having an actual doctor as your Health Minister, a medical […]

Super Moon Eclipse

Watched some of the rare supermoon lunar eclipse with Shea and Pace tonight.  Pretty cool, especially considering the last time it happened was 1982 and it won’t happen again until 2033!

National Geographic MegaFactories: Coca-Cola

It always boggles my mind that human beings are able to design something so intricate and precise yet massive and overwhelming at the same time…
