But what exactly does it mean to be Canadian? As someone who travels a lot, I am often asked things about being Canadian. What is the … Continue reading »

My Shopping List

Sometime quite awhile ago, Tamara bought me the book The Secret. I ended up buying the movie on iTunes and watching it. It really came across as being somewhat “new age”-ish but at the same time, it also fell in line with a few things I had been thinking about already. Sitting in a hotel … Continue reading »

Wanting it to be more than just…

Update: January 3rd, 2017 I found myself laying in the tub the other night (yes I have baths. It’s relaxing and helps me think) and after I dropped one of the bath balms into the water, I watched as it fizzed and began to dissolve. In a way, I started thinking about that ball of … Continue reading »

I wasn’t really a “hacker” per ce

My friend Paul asked me if I could help him rip some CDs he’s had laying around. He didn’t have a CD drive as those are hard to come by these days. Having an old laptop laying around, I offered to do the ripping for him. So here I am, in my kitchen at the table, … Continue reading »

An Awesome Early Christmas Gift

A Plea to Harmony Gold

If you’re not a fan of Robotech, or don’t know anything about it, skip this post. It won’t hold much meaning for you. Please stop. Seriously. Please stop now and put your energy into something that fans actually want. We don’t want yet another re-issue of the soundtrack. We don’t want another re-issue of the … Continue reading »

My First Surgery

A couple of months back, I had an incident during my mother-in-laws birthday party that had me visiting the hospital for kidney stones. I tell you, I’ve never experienced pain like that ever in my life. It was bad. Thankfully the folks at the hospital took good care of me and before you know it, … Continue reading »

Air Canada Is Not That Bad, Your Attitude Is

It’s been over 10 years since I started travelling on a regular basis for work. It’s been about the last 4-5 that I have been doing it a lot. It’s to the point now where air travel is a no brainer for me and I have my own little system of getting to and from … Continue reading »
