Pinery Provencial Park

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

A friend and I visited the Pinery Provencial Park today. We'd planned to drive north to the Bruce Peninsula National Park, but were deterred by the forecast of 0C and snow. By heading west, we managed to dodge the snow (and rain) and were rewarded by 12C. The park was nearly ...

Exploring the Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Region

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Today, I'd planned on hiking in the Laurel Creek Conservation area, but discovered that it's basically closed until May. That seems to be the case with lots of park in this part of Ontario. I did find a conservation area open, however, over in the Guelph/Eramosa area—Rockwood Conservation Area. It ...

Buffalo to Waterloo (Ontario)

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

I'm at the Homewood Suites in Waterloo, St. Jacobs, Ontario. This might even be the same room I was in last time I was here. In any case, the premium paid internet speed is acceptable. And because of the exchange rate, it'll cost only $3.81/day, rather than $4.95/day. Wooo! Again, ...

Syracuse to Buffalo

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Boston Stuff

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

Today was fun. I began by meeting with Cam and Bart of the Katie Tyson Fund at the UUA. We had lunch at Tavern Road (mini review… I probably ordered wrong—it was okay, but just). I found out that UU Summer Seminary is growing to 25 youth and 8 days this ...

From Home to Mr. Peabody

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

I'm at the Springhill Suites on US 1 in Peabody. I've been here many times before. The internet speed seems to be one-size-fits-all. They don't offer the option to pay to buy higher speed. The speed is pretty feeble, so I guess it's a good thing I don't have pictures ...

Finding my G spot…

Saturday, March 5th, 2016

While I was on my most recent trip, my Dell Windows server's hard drive hiccuped, which put me into a momentary panic. When I tried to boot up, it said it couldn't read the hard drive. Gulp. I let it auto-restore, and that fixed it. I surmised that—even though I ...
