You know you're out a little late on Boxing Day sales in Canada if:
(1) the sky is curiously grey not black
(2) you're not standing in a 200 person line up stamping your feet to keep warm
(3) baby strollers in the aisles
(4) still good sales but the 5 per store specials are gone
(5) it's almost time for the normal store hours
(6) the coffee shops are starting to fill up

Stood on a bridge near Port Hope waiting for Cpl. Cirillo's procession to pass by on the Highway of Heroes. Expected to quietly express my respects but not the honking and waves of support from the cars and trucks passing underneath. You're a great people, Canada!

Amusing but sad. I'm interested in +Microsoft 's Next Lock Screen, but it's listed as incompatible with my devices. It's probably a geofencing question not compatibility with a Nexus 5 (that they use in their promo material), but it's impossible to find out by contacting them through their email in the Play Store or the email listed on their Garage site due to "restricted to authenticated Sender." Not good customer relations, I'm afraid.

Yup... definitely sums it up around here!

Maybe a little hard to read, but my N5 side-by-side with the Truesmart running Endomondo. Taking into account all that arm swinging going on as I walked they're pretty close 3.14 km versus 3.25 km.

For menus in some apps....
If the menu in your favourite app doesn't seem to be available, try swiping hard from the left edge of the phone (e.g. Player Pro).

Another creative reinterpretation of Canadian culture by this government.. Opinions may vary, but I'd bet that the majority opinion is that there is a "social contract" with our veterans and their families that shouldn't need to come to a law suit to defend. It wasn't just "political statements that were not meant to create a social contract" by past governments.

Class act... Claimed in articles as our "Canadian coach" but all the better that he's also an American helping a Russian.
No country has a monopoly on generosity of spirit. As a Canadian, I loved the incident with the Canadian coach Justin Wadsworth, who gave the Russian skier a replacement ski so he could finish the race. What a Canadian thing to do, some said.... but he's American!
