Luna Has Hip Dysplasia

We had a health guarantee, but we don’t want to give back Luna, so we will find a way to keep her comfortable and hope she gets to live a good life. Luna just had her second birthday and today we should be on our way to meet up with her litter mates, but we…

A House and Home

It feels weird to write about this since we’ve been living here for more than a month now but Annie and I bought a home. It is a raised bungalow with Annie, Luna and me on the main level, and my mom living downstairs. The house is semi-detached, so we still have a connected neighbor,…

Hyundai Kona EV – Too Tight a Squeeze

Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a post where I discussed the options available to Canadians that interested me with regards to electric vehicles – Electric Car Options, but I was focused primarily on range and price, and since then I’ve come to realize that my top choices might not work.

New Computer: Freyr

When Annie came to me and said that she will need a desktop computer this fall for school, since it is being delivered remotely, I jumped at the opportunity to build a new machine for myself and pass on my current machine to Annie.

Tracking Mood – March Health Challenge

In March, Annie and I decided to track our mood several times a day on a scale of 0 to 10 to see how we were feeling. Little did we know the world was about the change. I had long wanted to do mood tracking and when I mentioned it to Annie, her eyes lit…

Retirement Savings and Depression

I never expected to live this long and now as I near forty, I am freaking out a bit over the idea of living into retirement. When I was in my twenties, I got married, we bought a house, I even took a government job far from that home to try to set us up…

Wallace – My Artillery (Evnovo) Sidewinder X1

So today, I received the main part of my new 3D printer set-up, the Sidewinder X1. This isn’t the 3D printer I thought I was going to get, but I’ll get to that story soon. I’ve been wanting a 3D printer for several years now and watching the features increase and the price decrease until…
