Episode 190 - Trophy Nuts


So, it snowed a great deal the other day and there is still quite a bit left on the ground.

It is Remembrance Day today.  Indeed, at 11 am in the grocery store there was a moment of silence.  It was quite moving.

Isabelle's friend Zenith is getting an award, yay her!

THE LCBO IS CLOSED FOR REMEMBRANCE DAY.  This is not the freedom those brave young men fought for.

We have colds.

Maddie is visiting, so that is always nice.

Well, it snowed overnight.  Not a lot as you can see in the picture, but enough that it is annoying.

You get three stops today, as I had to get my prescriptions filled again.  Exciting, indeed riveting.  Eye update, about 99 percent I think, but I can still feel my eye in its socket.  I don't think that is how it is supposed to work.

When are people old now?  What age?  In the past I think younger people looked older, like say people in their twenties looked fortyish.  

Isabelle needed to get old wallpaper and a hat for the boy.  Alas, no hat.

I asked Isabelle if she like making art more than it being finished.  I think she likes making it more than finishing it.

Episode 188 - My Clamps Are Limited


So we had an eventful week.

We went down to London to watch Maddie get her MSc.  Stayed with my Mom which was pretty great, and also ordered Chinese food, which I have a thing for.

The convocation itself was truly excellent.  UWO know how to do this.  Frankly, it is way better than ours at AU  (which is pretty good, but Western's is just better).  The band played them on to the Olympic anthem, which was great.  Oh and they played the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme when they were leaving, then, Sweet Georgia Brown.

They don't have the full video up yet, but they do have the honorary degree speech, which you can see here:

I'll post a link to the part where Maddie gets her degree when it is up.

Halloween is coming, which means I have to hide candy from Isabelle and Jon....

Isabelle bought some wood for her work (you can see the pic above) and she explained more about her final project.
