+Brad S "ownership of Drones," and as it turns out, you are correct, it didn't bode well for their opponents.

Success last couple of days roasting coffee in a flower pot with a heat gun set to 1250F. About 10 minutes.

Quick Catch-you-up: Forgot to mention in my previous post that I got a new camera--Nikon D5300--as a surprise gift from Dad. I really like having two cameras in some situations, but it is tough trying to live in 2 ecosystems, navigating wildly different men...

Occasionally Facebook puts them something in front of my child-brain that doesn't completely bore me. In this case the image comes from somewhere near 2009. I found an old reference to it on Mo Willem's blog (thanks tineye): http://mowillemsdoodles.blogspot.ca/2009/10/some-awesome-fan-stuff.html?m=1

+Kent Pollard​ Uncle, you've still got decades of potential coffee drinking ahead. Why persist in this half-life of calm relaxation?

I have pretty decent google-fu, but there's a few tricks in here I didn't know about.
#learnsomethingnewwveryday
Google has now become such an ingrained part of our daily lives that we just take it for granted, turning to it for everything from recipes to directions. For the most part, it's pretty good at answering our queries with a simple search, certainly on the more popular topics. But did you know there are…

A bleak take on 2015 from +Wendy James' news champion, Neil Macdonald.
Neil Macdonald's personal take on 2015. He sees it as a year of fear.

Beautiful light and a casual atmosphere. Can't say I'm a fan of the beans that they use in their coffee (a bit too acidic for me), but the food is delicious and the service is good. I love taking a drink into the bright, fragrant conservatory to help me survive the coldest of winters.

Fast service--even when it's really busy. Coffee and baked goods are spot on and with smiles. Perfection!

Wonderful venue. Comfortable seating. People with mobility issues may be deterred as the washrooms are on the lower level. Nice to have a bar serving refreshments, but some line control would be an improvement when it's busy.

Some nice shops here. However, the layout is not great. Parking is 'fine' most of the time. Don't try and park here during December shopping though. Not worth it.

Solid Subway experience. Located in a Mac's Convenience store. Caters to teens from the nearby high school. Wouldn't drop in over lunch on a school day ;)

Spectacularly beautiful! I spent a week on the campus during their puppetry festival. The grounds and the people were equally excellent.
