  • Six Pixels of Separation: Everyone is Connected

    Six Pixels of Separation: Everyone is Connected. Connect Your Business to Everyone by Mitch Joel In this day and age we are all connected via the power of modern communication devices. Everyone I know has access to the Internet, whether at home, on a mobile phone, or at the public library. And with the proliferation […]

  • Thames Park Trail

    Thames Park is located close to the downtown core of London, Ontario and it is the starting point for the latest Visual Running Tour!  I started off at the Wortley Road entrance and ran past the playground and community pool. I went over the main bridge to get to the other side of the river. […]

  • West Lions Skatepark (London, ON)

    I’ve been living in London for a few years now and I only just discovered this amazing skatepark. It has the best half-pipe that I have ever seen at a free outdoor facility. I like that the ramp is wide and not too tall. It is also very well-maintained. West Lions Park looks like a […]

  • The Tenth Doctor Lives On

    Doctor Who – Tesseract I love the fact that the Tenth Doctor lives on in graphic novels. I was fortunate enough to find this book in a discount bin. I didn’t matter that I hadn’t read Volume One, this book was still a great read. Doctor Who: The Forgotten This is the first graphic novel […]

  • Windsor Waterfront Trail

    It’s time to explore Windsor’s Riverfront Park Trail. The trail has a section for leisurely strolls (on the far right) and it has a paved trail for anyone who wants to roll along on skates or bicycles. I love the brilliant trail markers that let you know how far you’ve traveled! This is a nice […]

  • Everything is Awesome! (Do we overuse that adjective?)

    Have you seen the Lego Movie? Emmet, the main character of the film, continually refers to everything as awesome. There is a catchy song to go with this sentiment as well. Emmet isn’t the only person to over-use the word awesome. “Awesome” gets bandied about way more than it probably should be. Not everything can be […]

  • Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Part 6 (of 3)

    The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy: Part Six of Three – And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer I was really surprised to see this book at the public library a few weeks back. I’d always counted myself as a fan of this series. I’ve read the first book, devoured the BBC television series, and even […]

There are several of these stations placed along the trail route. Each station has specific equipment and instructions about how to […]

  • Star Trek Scrabble Win

    Star Trek Scrabble is a really cool variant of my all-time favourite board game. I bought this for my dad a few years back. We’d always enjoyed Scrabble and are huge Star Trek fans, so it was only logical for us to play this. See what I did there? One of the coolest things about this […]
