Adding an e-Bike to the garage

It has been snowing a lot here in Cloverdale the past week or so. This naturally leads me to start thinking about Spring, from which follows feeling out of shape, and somehow mumbly-jibbly-brain stuff bicycling.

Bicycling is something I used to do out of necessity. From about six years of age, I always had a […]

Road trip 2019: Motorcycle pilgrimage to the Harley Davidson Museum

Getting out on my bike has become less of a common thing the last couple of years.  The reasons are not terribly interesting: disruptions in health, work pressures, depression.  But I still build up a need for two wheel therapy, probably even more so than when I was riding every weekend.  And so I’ve focused […]

I CPAP, U CPAP, we all CPAP…

I have had an interesting year or so for me in terms of health. Strange pains and fear of tumours culminating in discovery of damage from a couple ’silent strokes’, tiredness and increased depression leading to a finding of extremely low testosterone: aging sucks.

My testosterone treatments have been helping a lot with my […]

First it was a sore nipple…

It all started with a sore nipple and a lump that I noticed in May of 2018.  Why do men have nipples anyway?  It is the very definition of ‘useless’, starring in phrases such as ‘like tits on a boar’.  But we guys have them, and sometimes things […]

Motorcycle road trip 2017: Selkirk International Loop

My brother Colin and I have started to make going on a motorcycle road trip to gather into an annual ‘tradition’.  This year, our trip was close to home: the Selkirk International Loop.

Recovering ‘lost’ pre-WordPress blog content from PHPNuke

I upgraded this site from PHPNuke to WordPress in 2005.  The cut over was rather abrupt and poorly thought out by yours truly.  At the time, I believed I had successfully migrated all of my old content to the new environment.  But several years later (!!), I realized the migration had left any article […]

A gentleman’s pocket knife…

Many years ago, in my late 20s, I briefly had the habit of carrying a pocket knife. It wasn’t a very good knife to be honest: I’m not sure where I got it from. But I liked having it- it was handy, particularly given the fact that I was living a somewhat ‘rural’ life […]
