    September 24, 2020. Today wasn’t especially productive as I messed around with configuring my browser extensions and wrote some posts and did some background reading.

    Organic Fudge Bar


    September 22, 2020. I have no idea what makes it organic, but it’s lo-cal, and I have two a day. I should probably cut back to one. Today was a meeting day, and in between meetings I caught of on email and my newsletter. https://flic.kr/p/2jKtEL8

    Frozen Tuna


    September 21, 2020. This is a piece of frozen yellowfin tuna. I have one piece each day – or sometimes haddock or cod, but usually tuna. In the past I’ve also eaten frozen salmon and scallops, but there were issues of these thawing and being refrozen at Costco. Today was…

    September 20, 2020. This is a roma tomato. I try to have two of these each day (sometimes I run out, and sometimes Costco is out of stock). Today was a quiet day – I wrote a section on a paper, watched the ball game, that’s about it. https://flic.kr/p/2jJUTPL

    Emma Saying Goodbye


    September 16, 2020. Any time I go to the basement or to the garage Emma scoots over to say goodbye to me through the stair railing. Her choice of railing isn’t always smart; there’s a 12 foot drop under this bit of railing (the cats have torn down the cardboard…

    September 18, 2020. I’ve been enjoying a number of British comedy shows on YouTube recently, including ‘8 out of 10 cats does Countdown’ and ‘Taskmaster’ (they’re delayed by about three years, so the current events shows are useless). Today, as I stated in a Twitter post, I spent the day…

    Voyageur Provincial Park


    September 19, 2020. It was pretty cool today when I set out from the Laggan School parking lot for a ride to Voyageur Provincial Park and back, but it was never really unpleasant and I managed an enjoyable 101 km on a beautiful brisk fall day. https://flic.kr/p/2jJdwWd

    The Pantry


    September 13, 2020. Exactly six months ago we started social distancing for the pandemic. Through late January and early February I had been stocking our makeshift pantry with essentials, just in case. It wasn’t a huge stockpile, but the idea was to have a month’s worth of emergency food –…
