Watching a Court Case that is Close to Home

While I thought that we lived in a safe and quiet neighbourhood, I was rudely awoken when my neighbour was charged with criminal sexual conduct.  I am not going to lay out the details of his case here, but as you can imagine, the charges were pretty serious.  When you consider that if you are …

Looking Forward to the Canon 80D

When it comes to digital cameras, I am very picky.  Having used the Canon 70D for a few years now, I have high standards when it comes to a quality digital SLR so not just any camera will do.  In fact, I care more about the video quality than I do the picture quality, so …

Dog Sitting in a Couple of Weeks

Since I am on the lookout for a new dog, I thought that the best way to find out if a dog is really what I need would be to dog sit for my friend Michelle.  She has a couple of Husky pups that are only a few weeks old, but she will be leaving …
