Thank you and good night. David Letterman will be missed but he deserves the break. Having been working longer than Johnny Carson, he should enjoy his retirement with no regrets. I certainly hope he is able to enjoy a long retirement and pop up now and again.

Thanks, Dave.
David Letterman ended his 33-year career as a late-night television host Wednesday, ushered into retirement by four presidents who declared "our long national nightmare is over" and saying there was nothing he could ever do to repay his audience.

All is well in Serendipity's domain. She surveys and sees all is going as she has foreseen.

Wednesday has a history of making us glum and sad that some of us have to work indoors. Well, here is something that will help you kick this day in the nuts. #dontletthebastardsgetyoudown

Serendipity The Pug is hanging out on the roof this evening. Beer and merry making is going on but she is still in the middle of it all. Happy pug and happy evening. #pug #cuddlebuddy

This morning, we are launching Canada's Privacy Plan, a positive, pro-privacy action report packed with ideas from everyday Canadians about how to roll back Bill C-51, end mass surveillance, and restore the privacy rights of everyone who lives in Canada. Over 125,000 Canadians took part in this process. Check out Canada’s Privacy Plan right now at http://PrivacyPlan.ca.
Because Privacy matters.
These ideas will roll back Bill C-51 and restore our privacy rights. Send them to key Ottawa decision-makers today.

This is what #bootcamp  does to a guy. You start out feeling tired... and you end up being amazing and awesome all in one.

So, about that thing I talk about...
 
So, there is this funny story I once heard...
In this episode, I chatter about how I am attempting to expose myself... to new experiences. I do lapse into the whole evolution of communication rant but not for too long.

Serendipity The Pug is home and resting after her #mri and the news is not awesome. She has two injured discs in her neck and her original cyst from eight years ago appears to have returned. The doctor was a little shocked and is taking the weekend to decide on what the next step is. A glum mood here this evening. #pugs   #puglove   #cuddlebuddy

This is my go to bookstore for everything from literature to graphic novels. But those things are just books. The greatest thing about Pulp Fiction books is the people who work there. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and are happy to help when I need it. Don't judge this bookstore by its cover. This is the Cheers of bookstores. I wish there were more like it.

I am a regular here. The place is clean, the staff are friendly, and it is priced decently. It isn't perfect but what place is.
