Funny thing happened in late January; I decided to take a social media break – I took a hiatus from social media. My desire to take a little break was not because of the Faceplant whistleblower event that demonstrated that FB cares more about profits than about their user’s mental health. Nope. Besides, who didn’t […]
Musings, reflections, thoughts, links and other academic related materials.
Here’s an interesting thought. All throughout time, when you are being “sold” something, the people doing the selling will tell you that what they are selling is “state of the art”. You know that ratty old car on the road? When someone bought it, years ago, they were told that it was state of the […]
I’m not one for making New Years resolutions. I find them pretty much useless. So this year instead of making any resolutions, my goal is to “support local.” But let me back up a bit and explain what I am talking about. What I have done in the past is choose a word or a […]
You don’t stop skateboarding because you’re old – you grow old because you stop skateboarding. Add any other activity in place of skateboarding. Keep doing what you love to do!

Essentially all of the village including the police station, the ambulance station, the medical clinic, the hospital, the seniors care centre, the two grocery stores, the […]
Something I haven’t talked about before is the fact that for quite some time I have been suffering experiencing insomnia. This is something I haven’t really talked a lot about. But now I have a cure for insomnia. Every night at almost exactly 3 AM I wake up. Like literally, at 3am I would wake […]
Good news! I got my COVID-19 vaccination. Friday night I was shopping at Costco for potato chips and Brie cheese in preparation for a long weekend of sitting on the couch and, well, continuing to do not much of anything. And as you would have it, my local Costco has the pallets of potato and […]
Let me tell you an amusing little story to illustrate a point about a thing I’m calling the Knowledge Gap. Most mornings I leave for work quite early while my wife gets our kids ready for school. She makes them breakfast and packs a lunch for them to take to school. It’s typically a healthy […]
