Blogging the World of Harry Potter

How different would the release of Harry Potter have been if it came out today rather than in 1997? Computers in every home were not common when we were first introduced to the world that J.K. Rowling had so intricately & lovingly created, let alone book blogging. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone) was […]

254/365: The Day the Earth Stood Still

People speak of how they remember the exact moment they found out about JFK getting shot. People remember the moment they found out about Princess Diana’s death.

234/365: RIP Mr Layton

Regardless of one’s political views, many in Canada would agree that Jack Layton was a charismatic, hard-working and caring man, always working with the people to bring about better change.

I’ve been hearing a lot lately about this “Tiger Mother” Amy Chua, who wrote a book, entitled Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Mother. I have yet to read the book, but I definitely will check it out. This commentary is based solely on what I’ve read & heard about this apparent controversy. For those that […]

The article that got me thinking about what it means to be “skinny”: How The Skinny Bitch Discourse Isolates Women As I had written in the comments section of that article, I have always been naturally skinny. I’m healthy, having been checked out by doctors (who thought it might be hyperthyroidism, which it’s not) and […]

Social Media

I consider myself quite savvy in the social media network, willing to at least give most outlets at least one shot.
