Finally, at long last, I have updated my About me page. Hopefully this will give people an idea of who I am, and what I’m about. If not that it should at least give them an idea of what I think that I’m about.

Well Thursday September 2 is almost over. Since I seem to be on a bit of a run posting here, I’ll leave a little note about the day. Today was basically a travel day, and it was rounded out with many loads of laundry. Goodnight and sweet dreams everyone Zzzz

With Terrible Tuesday now in the past, I can report that Wednesday is going along just fine. Hopefully today I can sketch out a few ideas for my blog.

It’s Tuesday, and already the week is turning out terribly. At least, since it’s early, there’s still lots of time for a recovery.

Logging Off of One Aap

Good morning to everyone ☕. Yesterday morning I signed out of the twitter app on my phone. This small action has provided me, surprisingly with a feeling of liberation. It’s almost a relief to be away from what for some time now, has been my favorite platform. Perhaps this will be the start of something new.

Last night here in Toronto we had our first decent snowfall of the season. Today I’m travelling by train to the eastern part of the province, and so far I haven’t been able to get one good picture yet. Ugh. I will persevere.

Good morning ☕. There is the ever faintest dusting of snow here in Parkdale today. So I guess, even though it’s still over a month away, winter really is on its way. Drive safe, and have a great day everyone.

Good morning ☕️ from utc -5. It is looking to be beautiful here today. I hope that it is nice wherever you are. Have a great day everyone.

Despite being a relitively large North American city, there is a remarkable amount of wild life around where I live. On the way home from work this morning I spotted these two frolicking together. Great neighbours!

With only two nights off before I have to return to work, there seems to be no sleep in sight for me. Instead of blaming the internet, or the naps from earlier today, I’m going to blame some undiagnosed insomnia.

Well another shift is in the books. Thankfully it was uneventful. Of course, it’s very quiet working the grave yard shift in a virtual ghost town

We are all in this together. Apparently there are many people who are very unhappy about that. God help us all.

Simcoe Day, A Reminder

Today in Toronto, the first Monday in August, coinciding with Civic Day is Simcoe Day. John Graves Simcoe, the first lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada should be remembered not for that distincition alone. We should be honouring him for what to me is his most important accomplishment as L-G. The passing of the Act Against Slavery on the 9th of July, 1793. This was a full 40 years before the Emancipation Act effectively ended slavery throughout the British Empire.

Today there is still a great deal of work to do to erradicate racism generally, the anti-black racism that was created to justify the trans-atlantic slave trade specifically, and even the ongoing practice of slavery in the world today. People in the past knew that it was wrong, and took action. Let us do the same today.

The sunrise this morning was about the most beautiful thing that I’ve seen in a long time. In fact the sky is just spectacular today.
