Seven Incremental Changes, Are They Working?

If you were around last week then you may have read James post about “How to Change Habits in Incremental Time Periods” and IF you are like me, I just laughed and laughed about how easy the low bar could be set. Seriously, you can set the limit to be 1-minute or 1-repetition on the…

How to Change Your Habits in Incremental Time Periods

Its become apparently obvious over the past six months that we tend to write more articles during the colder winter months whilst we are trapped indoors more than when those beautiful spring days POP UP in mid-April and quickly yield into long gorgeous summer months of June, July and August. Anyone who clicks on the…

Review of 2022 Aspirations, Goals and Monthly Achievements

At the end of Twenty Twenty-One, we reviewed our intended goals with our actual goals to see how that comparison panned out. What we realized was we wrote a list of New Years Resolution goals and by the middle of the year we totally forgot to check-in with what those goals were or to see…

The Big Bang vs God; A Comparison of Theories

Here’s the thing I really wanted to inform you of this morning. It’s a real “treat” about scientology and all that stuff surrounding the Big Bang Theory (not the TV show). Let’s say for instance that scientology is correct. I know, some of you are like “say what!?” But let’s just say it’s true. Okay. A…

Three Hours Down on a Twelve Hour Road Trip

Starting in Edmonton, Alberta at 7:09am and arriving in Castlegar, British Columbia 12 hours, eight minutes and 1 time zone later. Knock around the corner to onboard a little under a half tank of gas at $1.79 per litre or $97.56 which is unbelievable for 54.50 litres of fuel. Popping around the corner onto the…

Intermission Between Rounds at The Vic Park Classic Tournament

Whilst Brendan and Bryce were off using the restroom, Curtis and I wandered over to the first tee pad when I made a comment about some brightly coloured clothes sitting on a park bench. He replied with “Oh yeah, they are,” followed by a small giggle. Upon reaching the tee pad, Curtis set down his…

Lunch and Nine Holes of The Vic Park Classic Tournament

Twenty-two minutes after Round 1 concluded I pulled into the parking lot of a nearby Mexican restaurant called Mucho Burrito to buy a taco salad for lunch. Reading through the menu I changed my mind and went with a regular sized burrito stuffed with black beans and every vegetable they had on the menu plus…

Do You Have an Affiliate Marketing Mentor?

Its probably been said one-million times before that you should get yourself an excellent mentor and follow their guidance on how-to become the object of your wildest desires. The obvious first step is figuring out whom these “mentors” are going to be? What skills do they have to provide guidance? How are they going to…

Outlining Your Plans to Become an Affiliate Marketer

The very first thing anyone whose peddling the idea behind Affiliate Marketing informs you is the success rate of an Affiliate is less than 10%. This means 90% of people who attempt Affiliate Marketing are failing. Why? It is probably not from a lack of trying. Fair enough. What’s ironic for us though, is we…

One Thousand Entries for Twenty Bucks; 50/50 Are You For Real?

Seriously 50/50 has become an explosive fundraising event here in the Capital City of Alberta. Our province and its residents have gone ape shit krazy about the chance to win a fifty-percent pot. A few years back in 2019 the 50/50 was spread across an online fundraising page. The page had 10,000 hits every second….

Year Two Cost of Ownership; Its a Taco Anniversary!

Damn! Its been another 365-days which have blown past without any elongated road trips to talk about! This pandemic really needs to end, then we’ll pack up Franken-Taco for a long legged road trip out to Manitoba to stretch his proverbial legs and wrack-up some good kilometres driven. If it’s not evident, I’m still a…

South Facing Windows Are a Blessing for Heating a House

The week went by in a flash and before we knew it we were sitting in the Tacoma driving East along Whitemud headed towards the northeast corner of the city. Idly we chatted about how fast the week flew by then we sat in silence enjoying the sounds of Colin James, 40 Light Years. On…

Show Homes in SW Edmonton

After my initial review on Monday of the Altius property that Shauna had found, I spoke to her about the other property I found a mere five minutes away from that location on the SW side of Edmonton. We determined Friday night would be best for a viewing and comparison of the show homes. Briefly…

An Unexpected Stop in Glenridding

Right blinker on, I pulled the steering wheel turning south and drove 500m to the parking lot yanked another right and headed for a parking space. There they stood five stylish townhomes standing side-by-side all assembled in their brightly painted facades. Locking the truck, I nearly sprinted across the lot to the front door. Hand…

Living with Your Decisions

Have you ever made a decision you were one-hundred percent sure of at the time then several months after living with said decision you realized maybe that was not exactly what you had in mind? This is that story. Back in January 2012 we returned from teaching English in South Korea. We found a modest…

Recently, a good friend from down south of the border reached out to ask the inevitable question when traveling to a fellow friend’s country… “what are the best places to go hiking in Vancouver? and where are some good places to eat?” followed by “can you advise us on the same in Banff? Oh Yeah……

The Midnight Following of a Red Giant

Last night I decided to take myself outside and look for stars using the app known as stellarium. Then I went with my Celetron binoculars and began looking at the only star that I could see inside the clouded sky What was interesting is using stellarium I was able to determine that the only star…

Tires; When Should You Change Them Out?

Realistically FrankenTaco will not require a new set of “shoes” until 2023 or later as long as they do not get a pesky puncture or run amok in the dirty potholes of life. From regular wear and tear, I’m told I should get around 120,000 to 150,000 kilometres on the current set of Yokohama Country…
