April 1, 2015 - I have been getting a lot of snooping visits to my Facebook account recently. You think you were doing it anonymously, but FB records visitors. The worst offender of all is at
UPDATE: For those who didn't realize it yet, that link was an April Fools Day gag... I appreciate all of my friends and family online, and certainly don't have any objection to a friendly visit!

March 30, 2015 - Some of my more creative friends and extended family might be interested in this new contest from the Canadian Mint. They are looking for coin designs to be released in 2017, and the person who designs it wins a trip and $2000. Details can be found here.
