  • brrrrrr

    Right now in Ottawa the temperature is -24 C (-11 F), but with the windchill it’s -38 C (-37 F). On the other hand, in Alert, Nunavut, it’s -20 C with no windchill. Maybe I should move up to Alert where it’s warm.

  • When it rains, it pours

    For ages there has been almost no interesting tours coming through Ottawa — or at least I didn’t notice them until it was too late, mostly because we were so busy with wedding stuff.

  • Canada Day, and new toy!

    Candice and I have a new camera! We both had old 3-megapixel digital cameras from a while ago, but Candice‘s HP Photosmart 715 is sort of big and clunky, and my Olympus C-3040 uses SmartMedia memory which is hard to find. We decided we might as well get something better to take to Paris, so […]

  • they’re invading our malls

    Build-A-Bear Workshop is a chain of stores that let you build your own teddy bear — you pick how stuffed it is, what it wears, its name, that sort of thing. One just opened in the Bayshore Shopping Centre in the west end, so they had a little feature story on the local A Channel […]
