Pictou County Pizza

Photo by Hannah J. Bennett (Twitter: @hannahbennettNS) The home county has some reputations with food. Many people who have never even been to Pictou County, Nova Scotia have heard of Pictou County’s reputation for almost-perfect pizza. When I worked and lived in Western Canada and tell tales to people about where I was from, some would […]

Rewind and Fast-Forward

Here’s a bit of an older look at my tape collection. It’s been condensed down more significantly. Fortunately I still have a player that works reasonably well. It was an old stereo I had in my old apartment in my hometown of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Irony is the CD player on it no longer […]

My Favourite Halloween

Here’s a picture of my entry into a local pumpkin carving contest. It looks similar to the one I entered last year… My last year of trick-or-treating was 9th Grade. I was a junk food addict and was just happy to rip around my Dad’s old neighbourhood in Rural Nova Scotia, picking up enough for […]

Driving Towards The Sunshine

Fall continues its’ colourful annual visit. I spent yesterday morning driving the sunrise view to a favourite market in the valley. It was full for vendors who brought along more of their fall harvests. Many more artisans and builders seemed to have taken over this particular weekend.

Summer was over and the heartache of returning to school completely turned my stomach. I went to grade and high […]

A Home Like No Other

The home on the property has some age to it. With all the work it needed it still was a great place with a great amount […]

Reminiscing On Radio Days

For many nights as a kid during the mid to late 1980’s and again into a period of the 90’s the radio was a great source of comfort and entertainment. That first period into the 1980’s was a great time for the glam metal bands that started to figuratively take over programming director playlists. It […]

International Childfree Day 2014 #mondayblogs

This past Friday August 1, another International Childfree Day presented and passed. Certainly a humbling day for me personally having won “International Childfree Man of The Year”. I am grateful to the selection panel for their consideration, my family, colleagues, friends and to the Childfree community as a whole for their kind words of support. […]
