    Happy Blasphemy Day!

    by  • 9/29/2009 • religion • 0 Comments

    It’s Blasphemy Day Eve, and I can hardly wait… Christianity; I deny the existence of the Holy Spirit and deny Jesus Christ existed, let alone was the earthly son of a further non-existent god. Islam can have one mocking depiction of The Prophet from the Danish cartoons; Judaism, if it even had a concept of […]

    Richard Dawkins in Toronto

    by  • 9/29/2009 • atheism, science • 0 Comments

Thanks to CFI Ontario for the last minute tickets to the talk; I now have a […]

Last week, I was rather happy […]

    I’ve kicked in for a number of projects where I didn’t know what was going to come out at the end of the deal; knowing only the smallest bit about the artist, and trusting testimonials and sounds-like anecdotes, and the like.

    Email to a Landlord

    by  • 9/9/2009 • Halifax • 0 Comments

    Sent the following to the old rental agents at the old CAPREIT building in Halifax. I moved out of suite 2101 in Park Victoria in mid-July, 2009. I provided the person doing the move-out inspection with our new address as part of the process, which he wrote on the inspection report. It’s been well more […]
