Something Shiny

An actual Emmy… Pretty sweet!   Something less shiny, but it is an interesting use for old kegs…   So one shiny that’s really pretty cool and then one which is a little bit less so (although an interesting repurposing). The Emmy was located at Cisco’s Learning Centre in the RBC building on Queens Quay. I was downtown on Wednesday...

What Did We Just Talk About?

  Nutrition, nutrition and nutrition.  Such as having some before you head out on a run. Geez.
