A friend of mine posted something on Facebook about how she wasn’t going to enroll her kids in French immersion as she felt it was a bad idea for her kids. It led to a long thread of comments debating the value of French here in NB. For me, I agreed completely with her take … Continue reading »

I see lots of people floating the article around and talking about how it’s such a good article because it … Continue reading »

2016: A Year of Change?

I put a question mark at the end of that title because it really is a question for me. I don’t believe in New Years resolutions. I also have a tendency to think the whole “new year” thing is a bit overrated. People always make ridiculous claims about how they are going to change their … Continue reading »

Hard work always pays off, eventually

I can’t say for certain, but I am pretty sure it was March 13th, 2000. It might have been the week before but it was 12 years ago. It’s kind of hard to remember that far back. I had spent a week getting materials ready and had never done this sort of thing before. I … Continue reading »

Writing helps

This is a definite record. I’m sure it’s been years since I have had 3 posts in under a week. It’s been a rough week but today feels good. I got up this morning with the kids and have been in a pretty good mood. Tamara is gone for the weekend so it’s just me … Continue reading »

The road less travelled (because I've had no car)

I haven’t posted here in over a month. Man, it really is something that I have gotten away from. Oh well. I’ve got a few tales to tell today and I have a few minutes to spare so I’m doing a bit of writing. My car…Oh what a wonderful piece of crap it really is. … Continue reading »

Happy New Year

A trip out west, and back in time

On November 29th, 2010, I boarded Air Canada flight 8931 and began the long journey that would end only two days later. However, what happened during that brief stay in Hollywood, California would remind me of a great many things, including how lucky I really am. Anyone who has known me any length of time … Continue reading »
