Evidence of Canadian Winter.

Geez Louise! Forget rust-proofing your car… we’re a
nation of dysfunctional denims!

We must protest, for the sake of the gay penguins.



Since we’re on the topic of penguins, I’d like to go on the record and announce my horror at a German zoo’s “effort to tempt its gay penguins to go straight“.

These gay penguins (there are 6 of them) did not choose to be homosexual and we must respect that. I know penguins are endangered and more baby penguins are a good thing, but really – can we expect to save a species on the backs of gay penguins? I can’t live with that and I can’t believe these “scientists” can sleep at night.

What’s next? Shall we send our gay penguins to camps to learn how to be “straight”? It’s already clear that some gay penguins are living double lives, “one couple even adopted a stone that they protected like an egg” – clearly they just don’t feel comfortable to be openly gay in such a hostile environment.

How long can this go on?

Ok, maybe horror is too strong a word. LOL

Photos – wedding, Chile, Falkland Islands and lots ‘o’ pinguinos!



I married my sweet love on October 9, 2004. Love… Our honeymoon was spent in Chile and the Falkland Islands; mainly to go penguin watching in the Falklands, but we got a lot more than we bargained for. It’s one of the most incredible places on earth.

We really had an amazing time! So amazing that it took us four months to create some photo galleries. We had over a thousand photos to review, edit and compile! Plus it’s winter and we’re lazy asses.

I hope you enjoy our photos. See “Cheese and onion pie” for commentary and honeymoon reflections.

My bliss is in Iceland



According to nationmaster.com: “More than a third of the time, Icelanders don’t show up for work. Perhaps that’s why they’re the world’s happiest nation.” (Of 50 countries surveyed)

I wonder what they mean by “don’t show up”? Do they really wake up and say ‘nope, not today’ and go back to bed? No phone call? No explanation required?

Iceland also has no military, houses just three McDonald’s cesspits, claims the highest cinema/lowest church attendance, and ranks number two in gender empowerment (GEM).
