Sorry for the delay! Pat Anderson, aka @digiteyes, has been a regular commenter on the Live Below The Line series and give [...]

Day 5 Last Day – Live Below The Line
I wasn’t hungry when I woke up. I don’t remember my dreams. But within minutes of starting our day it was obvious we were hangry. Don’t know it? It’s that state when lack of food makes you unreasonably angry and frustrated with almost everything. We had it bad! And perhaps we let it show a bit more today because it was [...]

Week Filled With Conferences, Cookies, Contests and Crowds (lovely crowds!)
Last week was a whirlwind, leaving my brain (and my SD cards) filled with images, ideas and inspiration. I have much to process, integrate and digest, so I’ve decided I’ll share a quick set of snapshots of what was going on over the last week in the Food and Hospitality scene around here.  (Yes I know this is sucky SEO-wise, should care. Don& [...]

Test The Nation Now With Lex, Kate & Rannie!
The 21st century: have you been paying attention? This century is only in its first decade and already there’s a test? I know many of you don’t watch television… but would you turn on CBC if you knew I was going to be on it?  What if you knew, for certain, that I’d be doing something other than shilling CheapEats? How about [...]

That’s why when Creampuff told me about the brilliant Star Trek naming convention, I jumped all over it.  Here’s how it [...]
