Whatever it is you’re planning, I hope you have a wonderful Canada Day or Independence Day.

I will be doing at least two of the things listed above, but I’ll leave it up to you to guess which ones they might be. Ha!

I’ll see you in a few days. Cheers.

(I know that this isn’t a holiday weekend for everyone, but most of my readers come from Canada and the United States. If you’re from another country, I’d love to know what you’re planning to do over the weekend as well!)

What Happened Before History? Human Origins

This is a little longer than most of the videos I share on this blog, but it was well worth my time. It’s incredible to think that humans were hunter-gatherers for the vast majority of our time on earth. The narrator goes into a lot of detail about what their lives were like and how slowly…






Please Give Us Self-Driving Cars, Tech Gods

This post is a response to my friend Colleen’s latest post, Please Tech Gods, Don’t Give Us Self-Driving Cars. People have been dreaming of self-driving cars for nearly a century. “An early attempt at a self-driving vehicle came with the help of remote control, as the so-called “Phantom Auto” drove through the streets of Milwaukee…

Here is this week’s list of tidbits from my favourite corners of the web. From What Straight Allies Need To Realize About Pride: I know many of you attend Pride Parades for the fun, not for the political significance. It’s time you realized that Pride is so much fun because it’s the one day we exist…






How Have Your Tastebuds Changed?

Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have noticed me talking about this yesterday, but I’ll quickly recap it for everyone else. I’d just come back home from a dental cleaning that went really well. I jokingly told Twitter that I thought I should get to eat ice cream as a reward for having…






The Counting Sheep

Fun fact: I used to count sheep right before going to sleep when I was a kid. It never made me sleepy, though. My sheep wore such creative costumes that imagining them only woke me up.






Remember the Strawberry Moon

Something is happening today that only happens once every 70 years: a Strawberry Moon. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event for the vast majority of people. A Strawberry Moon happens when a full moon occurs on the Summer Solstice. It also signifies the beginning of strawberry season. The link I shared above has many more details about where…






Suggestion Saturday: June 18, 2016

Here is this week’s list of rants, comic strips, poems, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web. Mind Your Own Womb. This is fantastic. I’ve only asked a couple of people about their reproductive plans in the past, but I regret all of those conversations. They never should have happened. It’s no one’s…






People You Should Be Following on Twitter

I blogged about this topic a year ago. While I still heartily endorse everyone I mentioned in my first post in this series, it’s time to add some names to that list!  The cool thing about Twitter is that you can find anything there. Some people use Twitter for one specific purpose: to advertise their business; to…






Dust Buddies

This made me want to avoid cleaning my house for a while. Did it have the same affect on any of my readers?
