Dinner at Drift

I had dinner last night with Gord Dickie and Graham Eisenhaures at a new restaurant in Halifax known as Drift located in The Residences at Queen’s Marquee.

Steak in an Air Fryer

I’ve been hearing a lot of people say pretty positive stuff about Air Fryers and there was a good sale at Costco so I picked one up a few weeks ago. I considered a used one but decided a new one would provide an easy-to-return option if it didn’t work out. My long-time good friend ….  Read More

I think he says better than anything I could come up with to describe the critical need for action now, so I start this article with his opening lines. ….  Read More

Regeneration – Black and White

There is a “Reader’s Reference Guide” at the start of Hawken’s book. I found it a challenge to read easily as it was white lettering on a black page.
