Not only was Friday the second #LunchUpGuelph, it was also an Evening With Jill Barber. Could this day have been any better? Likely not. The eve started with a nice glass of wine with my friends Dr. V. and Carolyn. We chatted about running, marathons, and health, with a bit of work thrown in, and […]Read more "An Evening With Jill Barber"
Friday marked the second official #LunchUpGuelph. You might remember that I first wrote about it just over a month ago. Once again the event was fantastic; this time with about 45 tweeps in attendance. While the venue had changed, and there were some new faces, the overall vibe remained the same; charged. It felt as […]Read more "When Twitter Attacks Part Deux: The Re-Luncheoning."

Well, a mole represents a specific number of atoms or molecules in a set unit of mass; that number is known as Avogadro’s […]Read more "Holy Mole-y"
We just finished hiking Nihahi, the same mountain ridge that Rick hiked last weekend. It was awesome! Round trip, it was 4hrs, 15 minutes, including about 30 minutes for lunch. Despite the cold and despite the snow, it was amazing. The views were great, the company was fantastic, and I’m a big fan of conquering […]Read more "All The Classy Bitches Drink Mountain Top Scotch"
