Unending Cliffhangers in Canadian Science Fiction Television

Most of the Canadian science fiction television show I have ever watched end in cliffhangers which are never resolved because the show gets cancelled. You can find and watch them over and over again here and there but there will never be a real ending. Unending, never ending cliffhangers.

Its not that I need a happy ending every time.… Read the rest

Where Will Television Go from Here?

Television isn’t obsolete yet, but I wonder if the future will still have so many television sets. It is so odd that people still buy huge screens for television while looking at tiny phone screens most of the day.

I tried finding a TV in the smaller size, the size that would fit the space I have on my shelf.… Read the rest

Secretly Handling the Canadian World Domination Plot

asciidragonslayerA long, long time ago I wrote a profile for a friend’s website. The posts I wrote are mostly lost I think. I did save at least one. But, I did find my profile, with some digging via the archives.

Laura is secretly handling the Canadian World Domination plot. It’s all very polite and litter free but for the odd moose rampage.

Don’t Lose Your Poppy Pin Before Remembrance Day

I buy at least one poppy pin from the Canadian Legion boxes or the people standing at the door of the grocery store, every year. I like the pin itself and I like supporting the Legion. The real problem is keeping the pins on. Also, not getting stuck by that long pin several times a day.… Read the rest

Old Photos and Old Blog Posts

I haven’t updated my own photos to my Flickr account (or the groups I started there) since 2013. I feel guilty, sort of. Mostly I think I just ran out of steam. I have still been taking photos. Getting them up online was a routine for awhile and then I got behind and more behind and then drastically behind.… Read the rest

Working With the Barrie Historical Society

barrie1872 barrie1874Barrie is a small city in Ontario, Canada. I’m the webmaster for the Barrie Historical Society. (The Barrie Society has closed/merged with Simcoe County Historical Society). I’ve just taken on the job, as a volunteer so the site is not quite ready for prime time yet. But, I wanted to share the historical photos/ postcards I have found of Barrie, so far.… Read the rest

Looking at Courses at Georgian College

The problem is that none of these seem to be available right now, ¬†cancelled, or in another town. I’m going to send a note and see what they say about them and the availability.

For Remembrance Day

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Will You be Blogging for Christmas?

Christmas is on my mind today. I’m watching romantic holiday movies. Right now The Lake House with Keanu Reeves. I admit I have a thing for Keanu. How could any Canadian woman not have a soft spot for a hockey player who can dance? It’s just finishing up, the final scene, the last great kiss. Funny that he looks older in this movie and yet there is still just something about him… Well, you don’t really want to read my mind babbling on about Keanu Reeves.… Read the rest
