    Happy Fall Y’all!


    Can you believe it’s already October, aka spooky season? I know I can’t. Summer seemed to disappear in a blink of an eye, but I honestly don’t mind. In fact, fall is my favorite season of all!

    I know this year looks a little different with a global pandemic and …

    October 2, 2020. We drove home from our short Tremblant vacation today. This is the scene at the village of Brebuf, just a few kilometers in from the resort. It’s hard not to have a visceral response to the beauty.
  4. Downes



    September 30, 2020. We took the gondola to the top of Mont Tremblant and went for a hike inside a cloud along the Summit Trail,a winding path along the ridgeline that has the appeal of (as Andrea said) being uphill in both directions. Maybe, but it was also beautiful, with…

    Bee Sting Cake


    September 28, 2020. Andrea made this cake in preparation for our short vacation. It’s a yeasted cake with pudding in the middle and absolutely delicious. Today I gave a seminar in the morning and did some writing in the afternoon, getting as prepared as possible for a few days off.…

    September 25, 2020. This time every year we get an influx of ladybugs (or something similar) into the house. The kittens love watching them – here’s Charlemagne (with his many extra toes) hunting them on the ceiling. A couple of longer meetings today having to do with data literacy and…

    Back Yard


    September 27, 2020. It was a bit windy for cycling today, and anyhow I had my fill yesterday, so I tayed in, watched the ball game, and prepared some posts for next week’s OLDaily. Work tomorrow then a few days in the Laurentians.

    Cass Bridge


    September 26, 2020. I spent the day riding from Winchester to Spencerville and back, 113 km total ride through some beautiful eastern Ontario farm and forest country. This is near Cass Bridge on the Nation River late in the afternoon. It was a beautiful day for cycling, a bit of…

  14. Downes



    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. Lunchtime we went in to the Costco; this is a photo of Ottawa’s greenbelt on Anderson Road where we were waiting for a construction delay.…

    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.

    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…
  18. Downes



    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.
  19. Downes



    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…

    The Metro


    September 17, 2020. I spent a good ten hours writing my post ‘Boxing gRSShopper’ but it was crucial to have a record of the steps involved. I took a break in the middle, though, to go to the store; this is me sitting in the car waiting for Andrea in…

    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…
