An interview with my special lady friend, Jenny Higgins (and Michael Crummey), holding her own with one of the biggest brains in Canada, the CBC's Michael Enright. Way to go, Jenny.  You knocked that one out of the park.

(The interview also airs tomorrow on CBC Radio 1.)

Biggest disappointment of 2013: A bottle of wine I cellared for 4 fours, which I drank tonight, was mediocre -- ah, the hell with it, it sucked. Biggest surprise of 2013: I kind of like this Manu Chao guy, though I may think differently of that in the morning.

Just stick to the offerings at Brewers Retail (or Newfoundland equivalent) and you can avoid these problems.

I'm at work and can't test this out on a real bottle of beer. Anyone want to try it and tell me if it works?  (16 second video. No sound required.)

Apparently all you need are warm hands.

Close call with a moose -- at the 1:40 mark if the video doesn't start there.

Trapped moose running past us

+Patsy Fondon yes, because French canadians clearly all speak English with a French accent, just like English canadians speak French or English with a British accent, right?

Fascinating. I'll have to watch more of this guy's stuff. Thanks, Phillip.

So this happened. A smoked meat sandwich. For breakfast. Yeah. Sure. Why not?

And now I've become one of those people who posts photos of food.

To be completely hip, a selfie of you eating the food is the shot.

Every use of a gopro is a good use of a gopro. Eating a donut? Put a gopro on the donut. Tying your shoes? Gopro.

It's worth reading the blurb on Open Culture before watching the video.

Love is a such a heavy load.

I suppose everyone alive 50 years ago today remembers where they were when they heard the news that C.S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley died, right?
