Kazan's Panic in the Streets

Panic in the streets

It’s the Rapture! There’s Panic in the Streets! Why? Alberta has elected the New Democratic Party to a majority government, ousting the provincial Progressive Conservatives after 44 years of non-stop rule and relegating the former ruling party to third to boot. They even elected a Liberal (one). The New Democrats. In Alberta. This would have […]

How To Win The Lottery!


Did I ever mention that I know a couple that routinely buys lottery tickets as part of their planning to save up for a down-payment on a home purchase? No joke – it sounds like idiocy on their part because you could save the cost of that lottery tickey, but then I tell you the […]

Unboxing of the Corporate McBerry (the Blackberry Classic)


I have got to admit that John Chen is a consummate professional, as he’s had essentially the thankless job of turning around Blackberry Ltd. after years of mismanagement and his predecessor Thorsten Heins’ ill-fated tenure in the CEO chair. I packed a Blackberry for the better part of 5 years while I worked in the […]

Year of the Sheep - sweet and sour shrimp

Year of the Sheep

Happy Lunar New Year! That would be the good one. Today kicks off the Year of the Sheep (羊), or more specifically, the Year of the Wood Sheep. Depending on the circles that one runs in, the Year of the Sheep is also known as the Year of the Ram (which is a boy sheep – […]

A Groundhog Day view of the Buffet Fu Lam


Today is Groundhog Day! People celebrate other things too but the majority seem to be interested in digging up hibernating groundhogs (Marmota monax) to see if they can predict the weather. No, really! Anyway, the groundhogs are split in their predictions as Wiarton Willie saw his shadow as he was roused out of his sleep, […]

Dominos tongue - the sriracha pizza


I’m talking about the pizza chain which drops its apostrophe in the Chez Nous and not the game which is actually an invention coming out of the Song Dynasty just in case you were wondering. I don’t mind Dominos (Domino’s in the RoC and ROW), primarily because most pizza in the Big Croissant is pretty […]

The Bell log


Depending on how you see it, Canada is either blessed or cursed with three major wireless carriers: Rogers, Telus and Bell. First up is Rogers, the entity in Central Canada which up and bought what had been the fourth wireless provider (Microcell, aka Fido). Rogers is generally horrific especially when it comes to billing issues […]

Happy 2015!

Happy 2015! It’s the Gregorian New Year (also known as “not the good one”) today so health and prosperity to those who come to this site that aren’t ‘bots. Yes, there are some actual readers out there. I don’t have a good image of a drunk robot to commemorate the start of this year, but […]

Xmas Eve

Hey! It’s Xmas Eve! While I am using the correct spelling and pronunciation, we are at least very fortunate that we are at least 780 years before the eventual appearance of Robot Santa. That’s pretty good because as I still can’t run particularly fast, I wouldn’t get too far. Xmas Eve on the Big Croissant […]

Care packages

You’ve heard of these things – the are the boxes people send to their children in university to help when the children run out of money through their frivolous spending boost morale and remind them of home. Care packages are actually CARE Packages (trademarked), and were a standard box of supplies sent to mitigate the […]
