JWN Energy Group’s Daily Oil Bulletin 15 July 2019 It’s hard not to respect people who look adversity in the face and appear to laugh at it. The Trudeau government passed Bill C-48 and Bill C-69 into law in late June, effectively banning crude oil exports from ports in northern B.C. and upping the regulatory […]

The days are flying by! We can’t believe we only have two full days left in England together. Here’s a selection of snapshots from our busy, laugh-filled days. Tomorrow: final project “office hours” with David Dunlap, a discussion of English tabloid media and its role on Brexit, and a tour of the Mini-Cooper factory. — […]

THE MORTAL IMMORTAL. July 16, 1833.—This is a memorable anniversary for me; on it I complete my three hundred and twenty-third year! The Wandering Jew?—certainly not. More than eighteen centuries have passed over his head. In comparison with him, I am a very young Immortal. Am I, then, immortal? This is a question which I have […]

A friend and I saw Spiderman, while lying in luxury on those new seats, installed in some new theaters, that slide into a lounger.  My friend  is turning 80 and I’m 83.  We giggled as we bought our tickets, joked with the ticket seller, a lovely young thing, and sat down to watch a Marvel […]

LOVE. It’s a tricky thing.. But is also something that can turn out really beautiful. If you ever fall in love … fall in love with someone who knows your favorite color and just how you like your coffee. Fall in love with someone who remembers what flowers you like. Fall in love with someone […]

Ready or not, here we go. Welcome to my blog. It’s been a long time coming, it’s probably not prepared, and it might not work. But, here I am nonetheless. This blog is unashamedly about things that interest me. I hope they will interest you too. I’ll be exploring ideas that catch my attention, thoughts […]

One (Teacher's) World

I thought I would bring up what I see as my weakest area: leadership. It is not that I don’t have experiences and ideas to share with my colleagues that may prove beneficial to them. It has been my fear of “stepping on anyone’s toes” that has kept me back. In response to the question below from […]

Chris's Thoughts

Back in my middle and high school days I was always referred to as the funny friend of any group I was in. Anytime I was introduced to someone it was always “this is Christina, she’s the crazy one” ever since then that’s how I’m remembered. I’m not sure if I was called crazy due […]

I came on to shift as the designated Corridor Nurse. That’s correct; we have so many patients crammed in to our little department, that many of them line the corridor on trolleys and do not have designated bed spaces. It seems this is not an easy problem to fix- thanks to government cuts, older people […]

Foreign in My Own Land

I think it is safe to say that my life has changed drastically in the three years since my last long form blog post. I’d say things would fall into three different categories. The first would be the positive changes of which there have been quite a few, the second category would be negative change, […]

10. Banish. Let go of a thought or action from the first half of your life that is no longer working for you. When we asked ourselves this deceptively simple question, we both decided we needed to banish our fear of not being liked. By saying it out loud, we were able to call attention to the […]

From my perspective

Whether you prefer the version by Cat Stevens or Sam Cooke, ‘Another Saturday Night’ is a great song – the lyrics are more funny than sad – and when the singer compares his friend’s sister, a blind date, to Frankenstein – well, how can you NOT laugh. I don’t really sit at home pining for […]

World's Book of Various Things

Ah s***, here we go again. Literal: What kind of clothing are the men on the left wearing? Inferential: Why would these people feel the need to cross examine a natural phenomenon? Evaluative: Was it a wise decision to make polygraph and seismograph results so visually similar? Appreciative: Why did Steed depict a polygraph rather […]

Sat in the break room at 4am with the nurse in charge of resus discussing how poorly the female in the end bay was, when the cardiac arrest bleep went off. We looked at each other, and made our way to the source of the arrest. It was the lady we had just been discussing. […]

Deconstruction of me

I understand why Superman needed a fortress of solitude.  It’s because the world and the people he swore to protect sucked.  The human race didn’t deserve him, so from time-to-time he needed to get away from the world and regroup his thoughts and feelings so that he didn’t use his laser eyes to burn the […]
