I'm really not much of one for unplugging. Luckily the Rogers' cross Canada coverage doesn't really extend far outside major centers. Three days, no 3G. Fabulous weather, and we flirted with Cape Breton. With much dramatic whining, we dragged The... Continue reading

After many days on road the crammed into our small Honda Civic, we arrived sea-side, finally in Baddeck. On the shores of Bras d'Or Lake. They call it a lake, but it's an inland sea of (mostly)salt water and waves.... Continue reading

Really there isn't much more to be said about Lisa Brown being silence except: Vagina. Just when I let my guard down for a second, the big old Republican man is up there trying to get all in my vagina.... Continue reading
