Dept. of Taking a Break

Things That Aren't Solely My Mother

I thought you might like to see a little bit of Wolfville, the town I was raised, and learn a little bit about it. So here are some pictures, and a link to a reasonably good Wikipedia article on the town. I think it was ultimately a great place to grow up in. Not many towns of 3,000 (at the time) give you a chance to see the Bolshoi Ballet and Joan Baez, among other wonderful memories. It is definitely a small town, but there is a level of culture here that's amazing, plus ... well, go read the information.

Here's the cafe from which I've sent my posts. And here's a little bit about Just Us Coffee, because they're just a little awesome (Argh. Except for this story about their maybe being non-union friendly. Gah. I hope it's not true, and that they end up hiring the kids back. It sounds good.)

 Tired, But Amused

Perhaps it's because I'm exhausted, but I felt I had to post again to apprise the world of two things: I really still enjoy A&W Teenburgers and root beer, food items I only seem to eat when I'm in Canada; and the reality show "Nineteen Kids and Counting" is a truly horrific, repugnant show. I had heard about it but had never aeen it, so I decided to watch when I ran across it last night whilst channel surfing.

 Jesus wept, people. No, seriously - given the nature of the show,and the apparent philosophical assumptions of the family in question, I'm fairly certain he's weeping.
