Ice in April at the Creelman Rink

It stayed so consistently cold in the "Spring" of 2013 that on Sunday, April 14 we were able to have a game of shinny at the Creelman Community Complex.

Yeah, we got to play hockey in April because it was still that cold. You can hate on the weather, but that's pretty cool. Haha.. Cool..


Now, this is a big deal because the ice at the Creelman Rink isn't artificial, it's real, pure, honest to goodness, natural ice. Sure, everyone was probably sick of the weather in Saskatchewan, but it was pretty great to be able to say we played hockey in the middle of April in Creelman.

But we've had our fun, so it can get warmer any day now for the farmers to start seeding..

Life is Good.

Liking & Following for Charity

I decided to make a video yesterday.

It's about how some businesses and individuals try to turn giving to charity into a personal gain for them in the form of likes, followers, etc.

And it got some feedback.

It also got the guys behind the project scrambling to get me to understand how it is such a positive thing for the businesses involved while not benefiting them as much as I think it does.

SPOILER ALERT: It involves you liking their Facebook Page before you can see the other companies involved who are actually doing the donating.


See for yourself:



Here's some of the feedback:

Social Media and The 2012 Regina Municipal Election

*DISCLAIMER: Look, I'm not here to tell to you who to vote for, that's your decision. This is my opinion on how a few of the top candidates for Mayor of Regina in the 2012 Municipal Election are using social media.*

Let's look at some platform comparisons.
Oh no, dear reader, not those platforms, I'm talking about social platforms..

Not bad, but there's more to social media than just the numbers. I mean hey, the account could be run by a team and not just the candidate, their followers could all be bots, who knows? Let's take a closer look at how each of the candidates uses social media...

Oliebollen with Oma

At the end of each year, my Oma (Dutch for Grandma) makes Oliebollen for all of her children and grandchildren. It's a tradition from Holland to have them every year on the 31st of December.

So.. What is it exactly? Well, it's like a doughnut, deep fried and topped with icing sugar.

Wikipedia puts it this way..
"An oliebol (plural oliebollen pronunciation) is a traditional Dutch food. Oliebollen (literally oil balls) are traditionally eaten on New Year's Eve and at funfairs. They are also called smoutebollen (literally lard balls) in Belgium. In English they are more commonly known as Dutch Doughnuts.
Oliebollen are a variety of dumpling made by using an ice-scooper or two spoons to scoop a certain amount of dough and dropping the dough into a deep fryer filled with hot oil. In this way, a sphere-shaped oliebol emerges.
The dough is made from flour, eggs, yeast, some salt, milk, baking powder and usually sultanas, currants, raisins and sometimes zest or succade. A notable variety is the appelbeignet, which contains a slice of apple. The dough needs time to rise for at least an hour. Oliebollen are usually served with powdered sugar."

Because it has been a New Year's Eve tradition, I always wanted to get it on camera, just because I thought it was a cool process and didn't want to take it for granted. I finally filmed her making them this past year (2011) and this is what I came up with.

Happy New Year.
