Discovered this song on Spotify the other day. This is not who I had pictured singing this song.

Couldn't agree more. Especially given how young she is (which was the shocking bit, to me). Such a great voice - so mellow and smooth.

Had to get out to enjoy the 16-degree weather and that big glowing ball in the sky. I seem to remember seeing it before, but its been so long, my memory is rusty.

Seems we weren't the only ones enjoying the weather; about a zillion people were shuffling along the seawall today. I don't think I've ever seen it as busy as it was today. Still good times, though - especially since we wrapped up at The Reef for some johnnycakes, jerk chicken, and a couple of Red Stripe stubbies. Bliss!

+Cass Morrison - I fixed this for you: Face it, any long weekend in February is a good long weekend. :)

My dad used to be a racing instructor for a variety of car clubs at Mosport International Raceway (which I've just discovered is now called the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park - http://canadiantiremotorsportpark.com/). 

Here's a ride along video shot when he was taking a Ferrari F355 Challenge car for a controlled lap.

Laguna! I'd love to try the corkscrew in real life. Such a cool track. Maybe slightly less exhilarating on a bicycle, but still.

I think Connor McDavid has figured out how to slow time. There can't be any other plausible reason for this kind of play.

Google photos is reminding me of a beachside adventure we had 4 years ago today. Gotta love White Rock.

The city, that is. The place where this photo was taken; not the off-white rock in the picture.

At first glance I thought that was an aerial shot of BB-8 on a desert planet.

Just burned through the Detectorists on Netflix. Why has nobody mentioned this before now? If you like very quirky, character-driven humour, you won't be disappointed.

So many of the recommendations I get are dark and quirky - Jessica Jones comes to mind. I like light and airy for entertainment.

I bought gluten, wheat, dairy and egg-free chocolate chip cookies by mistake. I pity the celiac vegans out there that think that this is what a cookie is meant to taste like. They taste like disappointment.

I just discovered that The Green Door is available through "Skip the Dishes" delivery service. The problem? I am not in their delivery area... Dammit!!

Did some poking around the neighbourhood yesterday. Man, I love spring; especially when it comes in February.

Well, if it helps with the jealousy, my allergies are already acting up.

I hate to admit it, but if I saw that man raging on the train, I don't think I'd sit down next to him. Good thing there are people that are kinder than me out there. 
The unnamed woman reached out to hold a man’s hand after he had apparently been acting aggressively.

Not sure this counts as 'neat', but whatever. Here's what $2.4 million CAD will buy you, if you're house shopping in Point Grey (a neighbourhood in Vancouver). 

In other words, that's:
  • $1,745,124.58 USD
  • €1,557,306.17 Euro 
  • £1,197,188.76 GBP

Assuming you earn BC's median total income of $74,150/year, you can earn enough to buy this dream home in 32.4 years, assuming you don't spend a nickel on anything else (including tax). Well, that's one way to lose weight, I suppose. 

What a deal.
An 86-year-old, 2,000 square-foot house in Vancouver's Point Grey neighbourhood has just been put on the market for a measly $2.4 million.

Nothing to see here; just a Go-Pro stuck on an eagle, flying from Burrard Bridge to Ambleside Park.
Hercules the eagle flies from Vancouver's Burrard Bridge down to a nearby park with a mini-camera strapped to his back.

Introduction
About me:
Canadian, through and through. I'm a Vancouver resident now, but I've lived in 5 provinces, and grew up in the suburbs of Toronto. I'm a lover of the great outdoors (mountain biker, hiker, backpacker and camper), a technology nut, gaming geek, a socialist-to-liberal-minded bleeding heart. I'm an unapologetic idealist, treehugger enviro-weenie atheist. On the work side of things, I do communications, business development, project management, marketing (sort of), and procurement (sort of). I am an expert in the recruitment industry and employment - particularly in the Vancouver IT market. I'm husband, a dad, and the BFF to the world's most awesome dog.  If you're in to the whole Myers Briggs thing, I'm INFP or INFJ, depending on the day.

My schtick:
I try to be as friendly as possible, although that friendliness may depend on the amount of coffee I've had if you're catching me in the morning. 

My future-friend engagement guarantee:
If you engage with me, I will reply. If you add me without reaching out, then it's great to have you along for the ride, but the chances are I probably won't add you back until we've had a chance to say hello. Meeting new people is awesome, right?

Where to stick me:
If you're thinking of adding me to a circle, I'd suggest: 
  • Hiking/biking/the great outdoors
  • Information Technology/gadgets/gaming
  • Employment/job hunting tips/career guide
  • Sustainability/enviro-greeniness
  • Human rights/humanity/I'm a human
  • Vancouver/BC/Canada
  • Tattoos and the relevant subcultures
  • Art, music & photography (appreciation)
  • Debate club, but only, and ALWAYS respectful. I have no time for trolls.
  • Atheism, rationalism, humanism
  • Business/business communications/communications/writing
  • Social Media
I'm not a puritan, and I appreciate well-placed salty language, and my jimmies remain unrustled at the sight of nudity. I love a good debate, and I appreciate contrasting opinions, and am a strong proponent of free speech, 

*BUT*

I have no time for disrespectful or rude people. If you get heated, I get it - I do too - but if you can't avoid mud-slinging or name-calling, I'm out. I'm here to share interests and conversation - the second a debate devolves into personal attacks is the second I pull the chute.

And that's it - pretty easy, right? Right. Looking forward to talking with you!
Bragging rights
If the robot that keeps calling me is to be believed, I've recently won several free night stays at select Marriott Hotels. Lucky me!
