So Long Scribd
I have a vivacious appetite for reading. I can easily read hundreds of books a year and it can become very pricey. I stumbled upon Scribd and instantly fell in love with it. I have been a member for 3 years and love the fact that I have over a million books at my fingertips and for only $56 a year. [ Read Full ]

Dispensing of Incompetence

The Opposite of Addiction is Connection
As an addiction counsellor/facilitator, I have witnessed what drug use does to the body, families and community. The war on drugs has been a colossal failure, especially in Saskatchewan. Regina has the highest IV drug use per capita and HIV rates are skyrocketing. In some areas of Saskatchewan, HIV rates are higher than they are in Africa. Not only is it shocking but it is a crisis. Perhaps it is time we forgot everything we thought we knew about addiction and follow the Portugal model. [ Read Full ]

Review of the Sumo Sultan
For the last couple of months we've been discussing getting furniture that did not leave a person feeling like a human pretzel in need of a chiropractor. Spending hours trying to find a replacement left me feeling like Goldie Locks. The vast majority of furniture was either too small, too hard, too flimsy or too overpriced.

Wall Street banking is more diversified than a major film studio. It should be of little surprise that Hollywood itself is grappling with the lack of diversity, and white privilege dominated the 87th annual Oscars. [ Read Full ]

Modern Day Pioneer Woman
In the last 50 years prepackaged cleaning products have become the norm in the majority of households. Most cleaning products are infused with the scents of mountain breeze, after the rain, crisp linen and fresh. "Fresh" what? I am not sure, but Lysol has a product line dedicated to it, including the disinfectant aerosol can for the baby's room! Do you need to express yourself and discover new joys? Perhaps some fragrance boosters to "Stimulate your life and infuse your laundry with these soothing aromas." For all these wonderful and grand products we get to have toxic substances purposely added to our cleaning supplies. [ Read Full ]
