It's hot. So bloody hot that I can't even focus on my post for today. I think we've hit the "I should be sitting on a beach, sipping away on a margarita, and listening to the ocean" hot. And it's only going to get hotter... Seriously! Look at the weather report for the whole week!… Continue reading Here Comes the Sun!
It's finally happened. After 15 months (or more) of varying lockdown stages, Alberta has announced that we've hit our targets in COVID cases and vaccination percentages. The result? As of July 1, we can relax most of the public health measures currently in place. What does this mean? No more masks. Little to no limits… Continue reading Open & Anxious
This past weekend, I went camping for the first time this year. We packed too much food, too much drink, and had far too much fun. The sun was scorching, and the bugs were...tolerable. Surrounded by good people (within COVID guidelines, of course), it was nearly a perfect weekend! The one thing I couldn't help… Continue reading Confused and Contemplating – Screw It, I’ve Gone Camping
This morning, my alarm went off, and I opened my tired, puffy eyes and was welcomed to nothing but darkness. *sigh* I've had enough of Daylight Savings Time (DST).

And then, just when you think you might make it to the end, you catch up on your usual media platforms and it all falls apart. Facebook, Twitter, and a whole host of other services are… Continue reading Everybody Else is Wrong
Is it legal for a store to refuse cash in Canada? In recent days, I have seen countless people complain on social media about how current measures and precautions in regards to COVID-19 are infringing upon their individual rights. The great mask debate is a perfect example. Now, it seems, people are getting aggravated with… Continue reading Cash, Coronavirus & You!
This past week, I had the pleasure of having my vehicle decorated by an unknown individual. You didn't show your face. You waited until I walked away. You disappeared as quickly as you came. The picture you left on the back end of my car...is...something I can't put into words. Not because I don't want… Continue reading I’m Angry
Alberta is a province bursting with beauty. Look around you and you will see fields and forests. Mountains and plains. Valleys and rivers. Alberta has it all, and that is something we should be proud of. I am not, however, proud of how the Alberta government is dealing with our provincial parks. This past March,… Continue reading Alberta Parks: The Approaching Darkness
