Cardboard cutout

I’ve heard a lot of stupid things in my time. Hell, I’ve probably said more stupid things than a really large number of people who’ve said stupid things, combined with an equally large, or possibly larger, number of people who’ve said stupid things. Don’t believe me? Okay, how’s this: Grade 10. The Long-Suffering Sarah and I are part of an… Read more →

Uncomfortable Dinner

Canada’s federal Minister of Health has just slapped Saskatchewan’s hands for offering pay-to-use MRIs, prompting the Saskatchewan Minister of Health to thumb his nose at the Feds, in an act that surprises absolutely nobody.  While the Conservative Libertarians among us crow that it’s nobody’s business how we spend our after-tax dollars, in a less-than-surprising yet uplifting exercise of once again missing the… Read more →

Product Review – Amopé Pedi Perfect

I’m not sure when the state of our heels became such a huge concern, but apparently it’s a big thing. Like.

Our town gave… Read more →

It’s a kind of pathological pride in which you elevate yourself above the common man, when you challenge the heavens themselves with your self-declared… Read more →

Frozone

I have Seasonal Affective Disorder. I have, in the past, taken medications to deal with some of the symptoms. I have used light therapy (I had this great doctor who had therapeutic lamps in his office and I could just stop in a few times a week to read/study under them). I make sure to get outside as much as… Read more →

Strange Times

Everything seemed normal. Normal for any road trip you take with your kids. A million stops for the peanut-bladders; a million cruddy road snacks. At one roadside stop, I bought some semiprecious stone bracelets (a couple of mine have broken lately so I guess I needed to stock up). It was taking a ridiculous amount of time for the ringer-inner… Read more →
