Got a smartphone or tablet? Then you could be drawing your own illustrations, clipart, and avatars! I share examples and show techniques for creating your own artwork, even if you don't consider yourself an artist. My technique is based on tracing photos, so don't worry if you are embarrassed by your drawing skills. The video features the free Adobe Illustrator Draw app for iPad, iPhone, and Android, and the techniques can certainly b...

I'm looking for a way to record audio, and link to it online. I am thinking about having students record book reports and linking them to a book via a QR code in the back of the book.

Really interested to see what will come of this. Also, I realized I have no idea how the volunteer firefighter system works. 
About 20 members of the Spaniard's Bay volunteer fire department resigned en masse Tuesday night during an emotionally charged council meeting. The resignations came amid a controversy involving the lone female member of the brigade.

Poorly, it would appear. My uncle is both a mayor and a volunteer fire chief, and I've toyed with the idea of volunteering myself, so I'm pretty disappointed by this.

Pretty much the same as all the other grocery store/liquor store combos. That being said, their beer selection doesn't seem as good as I hoped. Or at least when I am there it is perpetually short on the tasty craft beer I am looking for.

The bar is a bit of a dive, but the kind of purposeful dive that is fun to hit on a Friday or Saturday night. Has several physical issues that resulted in some gross leaks last time I was there. Do a great screech in though.

Great location for intimate shows. The way the room is set up makes it easy to see a show and never feel like you have a bad seat. There is a bar that serves liqour as well. Architecture in the building is interesting as well.

Princess auto is like what you actually thought Canadian Tire would be like, before it got all the non hardware home stuff. They have a large variety of mechanical tools and pumps, and all kinds of things the average human won't know how to operate or use. But if you are the kind of person who needs a giant air compressor in your garage, this is the place to look for it. Also has a crazy surplus section that is full of odds and ends for cheap. Worth your time to poke around in there.

Delicious baked goods. They make several varieties of bread, cookies, bread dough, pies, scones, pretty much anything you can think of with gluten in it. And it is all delicious. Their white bakers bread is very dense and tasty.

Pretty good. Have some stuff that you won't find on other menus of chain restaurants. My favorite is the spicy perogi pizza which uses a sour cream base instead of tomato, and has layers of spicy potato covered in green onions and bacon... Oh god, I am salivating typing this. It is pretty great, and I haven't seen it anywhere else. Some of their best menu items are like that.
