This year marks 100 years since the ANZAC troops landed in Gallipoli. One of the things happening to commemorate the event for Anzac Day is fabulous light show projected onto the war memorial in the newly constructed Pukeahu National War Memorial Park .

Trying a new baked oatmeal recipe. It smelled fantastic when we took it out of the oven. Looking forward to trying it tomorrow morning.
If you are a fan of nuts, this oatmeal pairs quite well with almonds. You may stir a quarter to a half cup of toasted, slivered almonds into the batter if you like the added flavor and crunch. Or, simply sprinkle some nuts over the top prior to baking. Pecans and walnuts compliment this dish well, too. The mascarpone adds an extra layer of flavor, but this dish is delicious without, too.

I never knew, even after working at Canadian Blood Services for 12 years, that the pharmaceutical product that we were manufacturing/producing were provided to Canadians free of charge!
As a side-note, New Zealand does have a wonderful pharmacare program. While not perfect in what is covered, it allows Kiwis the ability to pay only around six (6) dollars for any covered prescription medicine!
Most Canadians don't realize the country already has a form of national pharmacare — my organization.

I learned that the power grid regulates the oscillation to 60 hertz. Who knew?
 
One of the pitfalls of popularizing quantum physics is that the very weird phenomena that grab people's attention also make it seem remote and unimportant. In fact, though, quantum physics is essential for all sorts of everyday technologies and activities, starting with the alarm clock that wakes me up way too early every morning.
Quantum mechanics may seem like an abstract theory far removed from everyday experience, but in fact it's essential to something as mundane as an alarm clock.

+Snow Andrews It was something that came up at a work seminar on grid-level storage. More an anecdote, so I don't remember the details of the wider tolerance.

This post is awesome!

I remember my first mandala coloring book that I got when I was ten. I had no idea what a mandala was back then but I sure enjoyed coloring each and every inch of of the designs. Even better was the set of 16 magic markers that I used to color inside this magical book.

It's great that doodling, handwriting and coloring are coming back into fashion with scientific evidence to back up the benefits/positive effects. The news coverage on each of these subjects is impressive.

Thanks for sharing this with me, +Leo Saumure!

Introduction
I've got a few different blogs if you want to check them out: The Vespa Diaries(A personal blog),  Quest For Fiver (a blog about living a healthy lifestye) and now The Night Terrors (My webcomic).  I also contribute to Maple Glazed Kiwi (A Book/Movie Blog). You can learn a bit about me on Facebook...or by asking me. Look, just check out the blogs, and I'm sure you will be thoroughly confused.

Thanks!

We loved the amount of selection that this Roots store had available, and would have loved to have browsed the selection looking for some of the great Roots merchandise. But alas, we were virtually attacked by what I can only assume were commissioned sales people, because it was like they were buzzing flies, and we were the rotting carrion they were hoping to feast on. I couldn't touch an article of clothing without one of the staff member jumping in between me and the clothing shouting that they could find a size for me. My wife tried to look at a hoodie and a staff member jumped in between me and her offering to hold the hanger while she tried on the clothes. Added to this unpleasant situation was the fact that there was an irate and screaming customer trying to return an article of clothing that was no doubt force-fed to her in the past, and now she was suffering from buyers remorse. By-the-way...I am not being overly dramatic for effect. The staff at this store would follow you around virtually one step behind you, offering unwanted input and advice and would not leave you alone! Hey Roots: Want to sell some clothing? Let people browse your merchandise without being accosted. By comparison, the Roots store in Victoria was a dream. Staff greeted you warmly, and offered their services if needed. I only wish that store had the selection that the one on Robson had.

We've been using Zaminka for the last four years, whenever we need to go back to Canada for a visit. The staff there are friendly, professional, and ALWAYS take excellent care of our two dogs. Whenever we go to pick up our dogs after the trip, they always look wonderful and healthy, as the staff will ask if we would like them bathed and groomed on pick-up. We're often told of some of our dog's various antics while at the Dog Motel which says to us that the staff take their jobs seriously, and they truly care about them. We will continue to use Zaminka for as long as they show such excellent care and concern for our pets.
