Calgary Parking Services pulling up behind someone stopped in one of the "No stopping from 15:00-18:00 zones" and ticketing them.

Made my whole week.

I got a package in the mail today from CP's bc-chris.

His famous Jerky. Mesquite, hickory and original.

It's a shame this site doesn't have tasterama so I could give you all a sample of how awesome this stuff is!

so its no secret that I work from home now, and I actually really enjoy it. But it really hit me today. I got into my car and turned it over and looked at the gas gauge, decided to fill up. Pulled into the gas station and gas was 92 centers a litre. Filled up and went home and out of curiosity fired up my Quicken accounting software, the last time I filled up my car was November 9th.


In effect my gas bill when I was working at my last job was about 30 bucks a week, now its 30 bucks every month and a half roughly.

It seems today is the end of fantasy football season? That really makes me happy because I don't have to hear respectable sports talk radio hosts talk about it anymore.

I had a long run of jalapenos from the grocery store that had no heat at all. The ones from the last couple of weeks have been nicely hot. Yippee.

I got a Tkachuk Flames third Jersey for Christmas, it's one of the official ones, with the fight strap. That RMMH, pretty cool gift that I'd never buy for myself

My sister got 2nd row tickets to the Flames game tomorrow from a rep and she's taking me. That makes me happy.

one thing i like about this time of year is getting together with friends/family and being able to try cooking up new stuff (it's just a good excuse to try new recipes i wouldn't usually make).

we have some friends coming over later today for appies (then they are going out for new years and then we will be putting the kids to bed and having a quiet night in)

a couple of things i'm trying....


bacon wrapped shrimp (never made this, but come on... bacon + shrimp = win!!)
Spoiler!



prosciutto spinach party wheels (made this before - really good!)
Spoiler!



mushroom/thyme/cream cheese pin wheels (i've only made these once before and thought they were kind of bland... so i'm changing things up a bunch to give them more 'pop' this time)
Spoiler!



turkey stuffing meatballs (never made these... but they look soooo good!)
Spoiler!

Looking after my brothers dog while he's at his in laws for new years.

I thought having two dogs in the house would be a pain but it's been awesome. Now I want another dog so my little guy has a friend

Just got a package in the mail: Dion sent me a package of BC Chris' beef jerky - the hickory kind! Dion, thanks for sharing! BC Chris, thanks for making it! Food always tastes better when it's shared, so this tastes some kind of divine!

We got a good thing here at CP.

A week ago today my elderly mother was incorrectly diagnosed with a Bladder Infection. She's 82 years old and was told it's quite common for women her age to get that. However as the days went by her condition didn't improve and she was only getting sicker, to a point where I had to take her to emergency Thursday night in High River. I got her there by 5PM and within 20 minutes she was checked in and in a room with a nurse hooking up an IV to get fluids in her body.

This young doctor comes in and asks a series of questions about her condition. From there he did a battery of tests that included her blood, urine and stool. He came back awhile later to say she didn't have Pneumonia or a Bladder Infection. Her blood had elevated levels of white cells that indicated her body was fighting an infection. IIRC he called her an enigma saying he wasn't able to find anything wrong with her yet but at the same time said he was determined to find out where the infection was.

The next morning she had a CT scan to confirm what the doctor suspected. Her Colon was enlarged where they found a bacterial infection - "C. Difficile". From there she was put on the correct antibotics and put in quarantine as her bug was contagious. Since then her condition has greatly improved and by Sunday she said wanted to go home. Was told hopefully Tuesday by the doctor.

I can't say enough good things about the doctor, nurses and all the staff at the hospital. The did an unbelievable job of treating her, especially the doctor who was very thorough in making his diagnosis.

Note to Calgarians: if you need to use emergency, make the trip to High River. You're in quickly and the care is awesome.

Our house went online today and already have a showing. I know it won't be easy to sell but I'm really happy we're finally starting our move into a larger home near my wifes family.
