I do not enjoy moving, and our townhouse feels empty. It feels, hollow. When we moved into our townhouse, it was the fifth time in three years. This does not include the times when we had to move the office for the company, and I had enough at that point. 8-1/2 years later, and we […]Continue Reading
Clean Your Toys!
Nobody likes a dirty keyboard, or a phone with smudges all over it. But we use technology every day, and did you know just how disgusting most of it is? Your screen may look clean, but studies show that a mobile phone can be 18x dirtier than a public restroom. It gets worse (sorry). That […]Continue Reading
Letters to Soren: Welcome
Hello Buddy, I had planned to write this weeks ago but (as you will come to find can often be the case) life had surprises in store for us since you were born. You were born on a Friday morning, and Auntie Alicia missed guessing the time you would be born by less than 10 […]Continue Reading
It’s a Waiting Game
Well, we have reached February, and Kidlet 2 will be arriving soon. Over the past few months, we have been preparing and getting things ready. Now, we wait… And wait. And wait… When my wife was pregnant last time, we didn’t know if it was a Boy or a Girl. We were as ready as […]Continue Reading
As Canada Votes…
I think few elections I have been able to partake in, have left me feeling so hollow as this one. I have come away from this group of candidates, wondering who it is best NOT to vote, and I feel empty as a Canadian today. There are so many things which either the party itself […]Continue Reading

It’s a lot to keep in order, so many of us take shortcuts. Taking advantage of your laissez-faire attitude is one way bad guys access your passwords. Despite […]Continue Reading
A Side Hustle Economy?
It should be fitting that in a supposed side hustle/side-gig economy, that I sit down to blog about just that… I read a very interesting article recently, the link to which I have since lost track of, where the author discussed how we are globally moving into what they referred to as a side hustle […]Continue Reading

If you really want to get into the nitty-gritty aspects of the legal aspect of what I go into here, I recommend […]Continue Reading
Is Indeed and others like it, becoming the Tinder of Job Searching?
I took a call from a recruiter last week, which really got me thinking about job applicants and the job market through which they navigate today. There are many ‘professional interviewers’ out there, and with the combination of the instant gratification mentality we see so much in the world, I’m starting to see and hear […]Continue Reading
The Kidlet is Sick
I’m not posting any material of substance this week. The kidlet came down with a fever Friday, which turned into a cold Friday night, morning into an (undiagnosed) ear infection Saturday (make that 2 ear infections as of Sunday AM). It is so heart wrenching when they get sick like this, and there’s nothing much […]Continue Reading
