I love this series. There is such an intimacy to the questions and answers. The participants seem to care so much more about the discussion than you see in some interviews.

+Variety you need to make this series its own YouTube channel.

I am not a big hockey fan (weird for a Canadian I know), but I definitely want to watch a hockey game with GoPro cameras in the mix. I love this footage.

Imagine how good the music would be if real battles were fought with marching bands?

I know that route well.  Great when it is dry like that. You really feel like you are flying through the Sawmill portion. Not nearly as well known as the Culham trail, but definitely worth riding even from further north. Kudos for using your bell. Not enough people do that.

I came and checked this out because of Emily West on America's Got Talent. I love how the two versions are so different and yet so similar #AGT.

One of the very best music competition auditions I have seen.  Amazing musical maturity for any age -- but 14? Wow.

To all the people that wonder, 'What's the big deal about complimenting a woman on the street?'  If many women find it offensive (and they do), it really doesn't matter what you think about it -- don't do it!

So, I was in a  #Target  (Canada) store yesterday and I bought a knit cap. I figured, 'Why not?' because it was only $3. It was likely that price because they had a tonne of them just that one style, one size in a choice of grey or navy.  What they did not have was any other men's hats, any scarves or any gloves, and it is a bit early for the spring clothes to start showing up.

The store I was is a big two-level space in Ontario's largest shopping centre -- Square One. However, as I walked around the store, I realized they carried a huge variety of different types of things, but that they did have much much in each of those categories. So for example, they didn't have much in terms of men's clothes, and they didn't have much in terms of groceries. 

If their prices were significantly cheaper I might start there despite their limited selection, but their prices aren't cheaper.  Likewise, if I felt they had cool things I could have only bought there (like Costco), I might have started there, but again, for my shopping, there wasn't that advantage. 

I have never shopped at a Target in the States, but on the day they announced they were pulling out of Canada, I wandered into one of their stores and realized, I am not surprised they are going.

I was okay most with everything this police officer said well into the video even though a ticket for the horn just seemed vindictive. Police are allowed to use cell phones for police business while driving and police can exceed the speed limit if required for an urgent police matter. The truck driver has no way of knowing whether there was a valid police reason for the cop's actions. HOWEVER, then the officer says, "I wasn't paying attention to my speed" and "I don't remember having my phone".  It is my understanding, at least in Ontario, that you could technically be written up for careless driving if you tell the police you weren't paying attention to an important element of your driving -- "I wasn't paying attention" is worse than, "Yes, I was going a little fast."  As for not remembering his phone -- come on!

EDIT: And I just had a thought -- Seems it would be fraudulent to give someone a clean inspection report without actually doing an inspection. If so, dumb doing that on video.

Gotta love a #contest  available outside the United States (America for you non-Canadians ;-)  A free MacBook Air is also something you gotta love. All it costs is an email address.  I have one just for contests.
Spread the StackSocial love for a chance to win the powerful yet compact 11" MacBook Air!

Don't hate on this movie. If all it accomplishes is giving John Oliver his own show, it was more than worth it.  However, there are definitely some truth is stranger than fiction elements to this story that are worth sharing.

I highly recommend Studio 89 as a place that is the exact opposite of a corporate chain. A great place for those that like non-profit, community, fair trade, sustainable, organic, vegetarian, vegan, non-dairy and gluten free options. For those more concerned about taste, don't worry they have you covered as well. Items like their carrot cake are wonderful. It's a fun place to go hang out and play one of their board games as well. So, for a change, skip the chain and check out somewhere new and cool.

I have worked with Catherine Thorburn for some time now. The thing that most impresses me about her Life Coaching is the combination of her strong business background (thanks to her MBA and senior corporate experience) and her thoughtful insight to maximizing one's personal performance. As you can tell, I highly recommend Catherine as a Life Coach or a Career Coach. She is a great combination of the two.

This is a spacious cafe and bakery style deli. They have free refills on coffee and pop. They have comfy chairs, fresh ingredients and tasty menu items. I wish this place was closer as it is a good hangout spot and work away from the office location. I will definitely return when I am in the neighbourhood.

I am a big fan of Coffee Culture. Their food, like their Chicken Caesar Wrap and their Berry Pecan Chicken Salad Panini, is fresh and delicious. Mostly, I enjoy Coffee Culture because they have comfy upholstered chairs and roomy booths; along with fast, easy-to-access wi-fi and a bunch of power outlets. It's a great place when you need or want to do some work on the road.
