Weekend Wrap-up Feb 3: You know that groundhogs hibernate, right?

I know that I get grumpy if I get woken up early … And did you also know the first animal they tried was a bobcat, and that, let’s just say … didn’t go too well. -Leon From my blog: Free Book Friday Feb 3: Brrr…Weird Wednesday Feb 1: Cartoons and TemperatureMusic Monday Jan. 30:Continue reading “Weekend Wrap-up Feb 3: You know that groundhogs hibernate, right?”

Free Book Friday Feb 3: Brrr…

Depending on where you are, you might think it’s cold, and depending where you are, you might be wrong … or right. What people can tolerate is relative to what they are used to, which is why when it hits the freezing point, out come the winter coats or the t-shirts. The first time itContinue reading “Free Book Friday Feb 3: Brrr…”

Weird Wednesday Feb 1: Cartoons and Temperature

Water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). OK, then when water boils at 100 degrees C, then the Fahrenheit equivalent should be 132, right? ( 32 + 100 more degrees). Nope. 212 F. OK, then if (212 – 32) /100 = 1.8, then there are 1.8 Fahrenheit degrees in each Celsius degree. EasyContinue reading “Weird Wednesday Feb 1: Cartoons and Temperature”

Music Monday Jan. 30: Julian Taylor

There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Weekend Wrap-up Jan 28: Polar Vortex

When I was young (not saying more), we just used to call it “Winter” Oh, there were the Colorado lows, the Alberta clippers, Chinooks, but when it got cold the Americans would blame us for the arctic air mass, and we would just put on an extra layer of ‘long johns’. Now it’s the PolarContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up Jan 28: Polar Vortex”

Free Book Friday Jan 27: Review copies are free books, right?

Why are there no new promos this week? If you are a reader, you might be asking that. Well, not that there is any reason behind it, but most month long promos start on, well, the beginning of the month, so, yeah, I guess that it a good reason. Easy to keep track of andContinue reading “Free Book Friday Jan 27: Review copies are free books, right?”

Weird Wednesday Jan 25: Quotes and Cartoons

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Often credited to be from Albert Einstein, but I think it was said by a writer trying to format a word document. I was trying to insert a few images into my document (mistake #1) and then convert that document into anContinue reading “Weird Wednesday Jan 25: Quotes and Cartoons”
