Above: friends and family photos from my UK visit I’m just back from a two-week trip to England. I haven’t seen most of my friends and family since 2006.

This video was shot during my presention for PechaKucha Winnipeg. Note: some strong language.
After listing my most popular posts of 2009 it seemed only fair that I list my least popular posts of 2009. These posts are basically the fat kid that got picked last in gym class (in England we say P.E. – physical education). I’m hoping you’ll discover something in one of them that will help you or someone you know. And if you feel so inclined you can check out my archives which list in […]
