Thin Skinned

   I’m thin skinned. I don’t mean I’m testy, and take everything I read and hear the wrong way, I mean I really have thin skin. My skin used to have layers upon layers of epidermal material. It took a lot to make me bruise and in most cases my skin rarely broke open, except […]

And It's Only Friday...

   This week was one of those weeks where Chinese-Canadian relations took a step. Forward, backward, or sideways, I’m not quite sure. In one week, we (Canada) arrested a man for spying on behalf of the government of China, and the Prime Minister of Canada pissed the President of China off. According to the RCMP, […]

  The roar of the crowd was deafening. The stadium shook, as the home crowd screamed and stomped. Even the players, could feel the ground shake. The score was tied, and there was less than a minute to play in the game. The hometown crowd was in a frenzy, cheering on their team and jeering […]

Puttering

   It has been decided, by Honey and I, that the whole basement requires a makeover. Walls are coming down and there will be a new configuration. We are making it DIYUID project. That is an acronym for do-it-yourself-until-it’s-dangerous. It may seem odd to take on a renovation job, considering my health situation, but paying […]

   In March 2014 I was sitting in the waiting room of the Mercedes-Benz dealership as they gave my work-truck its regular maintenance. I was reading the newspaper and I came across a story buried way in the back, one my father would have called a filler piece. If there had been more news that […]

   Being back at home means that I must deal with reality and get myself back on the program. This means back into the clinics for blood-work and rolling up my sleeve for more vaccinations. There are also things to be handled around the house, and although I may not be the man I once […]

“Budda Bing Shrimp”- appetizer- $12Cdn.  Doryman Pub and Grill, Cheticamp NS. Served grilled with spicy/sweet glaze. “Order 2!” “Lobster Mushroom Caps”- appetizer- $21.50Cdn. La Coast, Shediac NB. Served in garlic-butter and with garlic-bread. “Awesome” I’m not much a reviewer, probably because I’m long-winded. But occasionally I will do a little free promo work because certain […]

Seagulls And Schooners

   There was plenty of down-time during our road trip. Time spent sitting sipping a beverage, with no place to be and no time to be there at. I would call it leisure time. The only real decision to be made was what and where to eat. Some places we were didn’t offer many choices, […]

Down With History

   The road trip to Canada’s eastern provinces, aside from going somewhere we’d never been before, was to see first-hand the birth place of our nation. To learn more about the region and its history. This meant stopping at historical sites, museums, and roadside plaques. Historical sites and museum give you a heads-up long before […]

The Millennial Toilet

   Home. Our Atlantic land journey has been completed. A trip that saw Honey and I drive a little more the 12,000kms, over 30 days. An epic journey, for both of us. When you add distance, to number of days of travel, then divide that by the number of times I got lost, then multiply […]
