1st-World Nonsense

Sometimes, you need to take a step back so that you can see the broader picture. Gain a new perspective and not be so narrow in your thinking. Pause, take a deep breath and see things for what they are. A case in point would be the notice Honey found taped to our back door […]

Solo Focus

A solo focus. This I believe has become the downfall for a vast majority of people. They see it one way and one way only, there is no variation to their focus. No matter what anyone says, they see it their way only. Do you know someone like that? They are the ones that you […]

I was doing so well with a regular article but the week before Easter I started a 23-day stretch with no days off. It is hard to write when your brain is saturated with things to get done. I did stare at a blank page last week for an hour, trying to organize my thoughts. […]

There is a restaurant business and there is a hotel/cabana/cottage/bed on the beach/ or however you wish to describe it, business.

Hands Freed

I am happy to report that Honey has had her casts removed. Her thumbs have been freed, and will now be permitted to interact with the rest of her fingers. This might not seem like any great thing to you, but for the guy that has been holding the spoon so she can eat, it […]

I support the actions taken at my border, both federally and provincially, in an effort to mitigate the spread of a deadly virus. Even though I miss the sand and the warm sun like many others, I can only shake my head at the impatience of some, and their misguided belief that “it won’t happen […]

Creative Solutions

Over the past few weeks, I have been faced with a series of unusual challenges due to Honey’s ‘diminished-capacity’, and have had to come up with some creative solutions. “Necessity is the mother of invention”, they say. I have also been dealing with holiday store closures, and a ‘code-red-stay-home-essential-goods-only’ COVID-19 lockdown. It has been a […]
