I’ve always loved Star Wars. I grew up with it. I watched the movies all the time. I had some of the figurines and a speeder bike that exploded. I regularly checked to see if I had the Force. (I still don’t.) I memorized many of the lines.

Yoda especially said memorable things. “Control, control. You must learn control!” He may look like a muppet, but he’s full of things that sound wise.

99 Batches of Beer on the Wall

I started actively homebrewing beer in August 2015. Now, 4 ½ years later, I’ve just put my 100th batch into the fermenter. It’s a nice milestone at the start of a new year.

Pardon me while I reminisce.

Remembering

I sit down to write this on September 11th. It’s a date that stands out in many people’s memories. Where were you on September the 11th, 2001? I was near Ottawa, taking part in training for NET Canada. Several of my teammates were American, and one of the Canadians had a friend who worked a block from the Twin Towers. They were huddled around the only TV, trying to find out – and make sense of –what was happening. There was tension in the air, some fear, some sadness, and a lot of confusion. It was a memorable day.

The Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon, SK is seeking an outgoing and engaging Administrative Assistant/Receptionist to become part of our parish ministry team.

Don't Kill Bugs #prolife

I’ve always loved Bob & Doug McKenzie, though I wouldn’t typically call them inspirational. I mean, they’re probably best known for their version of the Twelve Days of Christmas, and they can’t get past day 8.

But here and there they have nuggets of wisdom. Please help me welcome… Elron McKenzie! <insert applause here>

It's so simple

It’s Lent, the time when we give something up, a season for fasting. I remember the year my parents decided we were giving up TV for Lent. That felt like the longest Lent ever.

My Pens

Over the last couple years I’ve been enjoying pens. It started with comparing various inexpensive disposable pens to see which was more reliable (go Bic Round Stick!). Then I picked up a few rollerball and gel pens. They’re so smooth, my beloved Zebra Sarasa never smears, and I adore the vibrant red of my Uniball Signo 207. It’s a thing of beauty.
