Episode 79 - Art Carney Mon Amour

Former head of the Bank of Canada, Chickley Mindaboo

Former head of the Bank of Canada, Chickley Mindaboo

Another day, another trip shopping.  

Jon was along again, but not too interested in the podcast.

In this one we talked a bit about working out, a bit about Isabelle's print making, a bit about the Group of Seven and a bit about last night's French debate.  Oh, as an aside, I won that debate....

About the Group of Seven, are they just a bunch of hacks who we in Canada love because they are Canadian (a la the Tragically Hip) or are they a thing in other parts of the world?

Oh, and Art Carney was never the head of the Bank of Canada.

Episode 78 - String Theory

Today we went shopping, and yup, that is a day early  Isabelle has a very big weekend planned, she has a lot of marking to do today (which I took up part of by having us grocery shop early) and then she is off with her art profs to do some arting up in Agawa.

The conversation was varied, I quite liked Isabelle's idea that debates ought to be moderated by Marc Maron.

Oh I screwed up on one of the songs, started playing the wrong one, and changed.  Edit?  Never!

Episode 77 - Electric Toothbrushes Are Fun!

Boy, this one has a lot of parts.

Some of it was recorded on Monday, at home with Jon, after dinner.  We talked about his new experiences in high school.

The next day we were off to get stuff for Isabelle's art classes.  So, we went to Home Depot, and recorded on the way there.  We saw an AMC Pacer, amazingly, which led to us talking about Isabelle's Mom's Pacer.  Yup, she had a Pacer.

Finally, we got to grocery shopping!  Jon had some problems with his computer on Saturday, which was a nightmare for a bit.  Jon reacted well though.  Oddly, that same day Isabelle got a call from India from 'Microsoft' about how her computer had a virus.....

The final bit was recorded on Sunday,  We talked about Evel Knieval and Snoopy toothbrushes.
