Ancestry is a funny thing. Or at least, that's the feeling I get from reading different articles on Facebook. I know, I know. I should know better, but I don't. I can't help myself. I see an interesting headline, and I click on it. Feel free to judge me if you wish, but I also… Continue reading Do You Get Where I’m Coming From?
What would you do to save your favourite haunts? Would you fight? Or would you do nothing and let them fade into obscurity? These are the questions I'm asking you today. It should come as no surprise at this point that the restaurant industry has taken a pounding over the last two years. Even more… Continue reading Give a Little, Save a Lot
Well...here we go. In another three days, we will, once again, have gone through another federal election. Another chance to vote. Another opportunity for your voice to be heard. Another moment to cheer for your candidate of choice... Another glorious rallying cry to unite the country at the polls…followed by an endless amount of whining… Continue reading This Monday in Canada
Somebody hates me. Regardless of what I do, say, or how I feel, there is somebody out there that hates me.
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.

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). It's a useless relic of the past - a pointless exercise that serves little purpose in today's society. It's nothing more than a trick. We are… Continue reading Death to Thee, Oh DST!
The United States should be the envy of the world. But sadly, they are not,. And I do not envy them today.
The world is a mess. There are times when simply getting through the day is a grueling, painful task. 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
