I once had a professor who came to Canada from a communist occupied European country. How he got out of there, God only knows. He was a tight-lipped, taciturn fellow and generally hard to talk to. One day I tried to talk to him about where he came from. He admitted the standard of living […]Read More Is North America Really Devoid Of Culture?
Boy oh boy. There are so many good tunes for the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 1966 that I really had to scratch my head over choosing just one.

I actually watched two videos about Russia last night. But I found this one the most captivating. This second video is also worthwhile. But, on the whole, I find Russian aesthetics to be a bit clunky for my liking. It’s like they never really get it “quite right.” Totally subjective, I know. But that’s how […]Read More My summer cyber travels – Moscow and St. Petersburg
I’ve been restoring old computers and learning more about the ins and outs of software and especially hardware. I’ve always enjoyed software but never used to be a hardware person at all.
