Spent some time at the reopened Cardinal Cafe in Sharbot Lake yesterday. The new owners, Chef Rob Moore and his wife Nancy have already developed a regular clientele with their rich fair trade coffee and locally sourced products. The menu will continue to expand and evolve with the seasons, and as the new owners get their kitchen fine tuned.

I gave it my 'acid test' by ordering a regular drip black coffee and a croissant at the end of the day. The coffee was hot and rich without a hint of bitter staleness. And the croissant still had that 'exploding crispness' and decadent richness that can only come from a fresh product.

I've met some of the volunteers. Over the past few years. Great perks!
Free admission when not on duty. Good food. Massages. And exclusive experiences.

Holly is always a solid source of information.  Check this list out. I like how she has broken it down into categories to help the search.

Havana is in the midst of renovations and renewal. It deserves its designation as a UNESCO heritage site. I would encourage all visitors to leave behind any expectations, comparisons, and home grown values. Just come and be prepared to experience and learn. Oh, and bring lots of cash. #havana #cuba I'm catching up on my writing, so please forgive the unfinished look of these shots.

Just got back from Cancun and found this buried in my email. It is a short but powerful video article on the science of experience over things. Needless to say, Ed was preaching to the choir on this.

Just looked out of the office window. The same view as last year despite our green Christmas.
The view outside my office window during our meeting.  Enjoy +Irene Phillips !

My thoughts after logging in to Google Plus:
" How inspiring. Why am I not here more often?"
My thoughts after logging in to Facebook:
"Ugg. I feel drained. Can life be so banal?"

OK back to work...(those thoughts are for another post).

Taking a friend to Quebec City to discover her family roots turned into a very active time with the Quebec Cycling Grand Prix hosted half a block away.  Sometimes you just have to roll with it and enjoy the surprises.
