Episode 71 - Mandela Mandala

Mandela Mandala Tomato, Tomato.....

Mandela Mandala Tomato, Tomato.....

So today we combined the standard grocery shopping podcast with the bonus of us getting ready for a social learning opportunity for kids with autism.  These 'SLOs' allow kids with autism to get out, do an activity and meet other people.  Isabelle set this one up, mentioned it on Facebook and the next thing you know a local reporter, Katie Huckson showed up.  Follow her on twitter.

Now I didn't know what a Mandala was.  I knew what a Mandela was though, and this led to hilarity.

Then, off to the groceries.  

We brought Jon along this time which was fun.  You know what?  We've been podcasting for then years, cool eh?

Episode 70 - Fake Bikers

Today is the 11th anniversary of us arriving back in Sault Ste. Marie from Newfoundland.  So, we celebrated by podcasting!  Actually, umm, well it is Saturday and we had to get groceries.

We just had a really fun camping trip up at Agawa Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park.  We were up there for four days and Jon had trouble finding wifi.  

There has been a lot of talk in town about the Algoma Central Railway, specifically the passenger service between Sault Ste. Marie and Hearst, ON.  The train has been shut down for now, which is rough on some people.  

While up at Agawa we ran into some faux bikers.  I, for some reason, found them really annoying.....

Episode 69 - There is No Bingo

Join us in our drudgery, err, an exciting trip to buy stuff.

It is our wedding anniversary today, so you will notice a theme today.  We talked about how French on the internet, and in general, doesn't get the respect it deserves and it is annoying. This seems especially true on the web.  People don't seem to care that missing accents, for example, ARE SPELLING MISTAKES.

In exciting news, Isabelle almost got killed by someone in the parking lot, so that was fun.

Our city is slowly changing, though it is still pretty far behind other places.

I got gin today that came with a handy bottle of tonic, what a time to be alive.  We talked a bit about our wedding, where Isabelle's cousin married us, which was pretty damned cool.  Oddly, her cousin was born in Austin, TX, where her dad was a psychology professor.  Oh and Isabelle's aunt looks like Isabelle but older.

We ended by listening to a little Sinatra and realized that he just talked for the most part.
