I don’t eat at many Calgary restaurants these days, but I’d rate The Himalayan as my #1 favourite. Filed under: food, product endorsements(image)

our car rally trophy from 1975rickmcRick McCharles and Richard Englehardt win Viscount Bennett High School Car Rally.

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 11:03:43 +0000

I’m downsizing. Word is I won’t be able to bring my trophies to Heaven, so I’m melting this one down for GOLD and donating it to the survivors of the “Bowling Green massacre“. (Conway #AlternativeFacts) As I recall, Rich and I won because the real winners were disqualified. They’d not worn seat-belts. First prize was … Continue reading our car rally trophy from 1975(image)

One of my favourite books: What the Buddha Never Taught by Tim Ward. There is a place in the jungles of northeastern Thailand where Westerners can live according to the monastic rules laid down over 2,500 years ago by the Buddha. Author and journalist Tim Ward sought enlightenment and spent a season in this unique Buddhist … Continue reading What the Buddha Never Taught(image)

I finally bought new skis. Wish me luck. It’s going to be a little cold. Sunshine Village ski runs and lifts are accessed via an eight-person high-speed gondola. The gondola takes people from the parking lot (or bus terminal) to Goat’s Eye mountain in 10 minutes and to the upper Village area in 18 minutes. … Continue reading skiing Sunshine the next 3 days(image)

One of my rules of good web design is that nothing should happen on the page unless I ask it to happen. This is a BIG improvement to my experience on Facebook. A simple extension called Disable HTML5 Autoplay for Chrome and Opera — and coming soon to Firefox — stops those videos from playing … Continue reading STOP Facebook videos from playing automatically(image)

meh – Fantastic Beastsrickmcmuggle

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 11:03:57 +0000

Give it a miss unless you are a serious Harry Potter fan. Too long and not fantastical enough for me. None of the characters charmed me aside from this Muggle. Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein was probably my second favourite character. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them … A spin-off of the Harry Potter film … Continue reading meh – Fantastic Beasts(image)

What, you ask? A smaller backpack? ALL my cassette tapes, reel-to-reel and VHS are headed for Value Village. A few CDs, as well. Software. Old electronics. Even that romantic mix tape.  I’ll donate at least 75% of my old clothes. Less is more. 🙂 related – my philosophy of Voluntary SimplicityFiled under: Apple, gymnastics, movies, … Continue reading Rick is downsizing(image)
