I like The Hazlitt. I think it’s good, Canadian content that readers and listeners should be tuning into. I also subscribe to their podcast, and I just finished listening to the latest episode: The Arcade: Episode 30, More Truth | Hazlitt.
Give it a listen, and a thought. You may also want to subscribe to the podcast, like I do. Then, be sure to cruise on over to their website and peruse some of the online content. And, please, remember most of what the interviewee says when you’re reading my blog. I’m also pretty open.
Now, it’s terribly unlikely that my blog will bring me fame, but I don’t think that this should stop The Hazlitt from contacting me for an interview. Hell, you should contact me for an interview, too. Or, at the very least, you can subscribe to my blog, giving me the perception of fame.

I don’t know whether you know Mariposa. If not, it is of no consequence, for if you know Canada at all, you are probably well acquainted with a dozen towns just like it.

Over the last ten days I have made eight trips to Toronto. For those of you who are counting, one way is approximately 134 km (according to the signage on the highway, and depending where in the city I’m going), which can take anywhere from one and a quarter to over-three hours. During the summer months, I can squeeze 600 km out of a full tank, which costs about $65-70 to fill. Factor in traffic, and, um, aggressive driving behaviour, and it takes about one half tank to make a round trip.
Where are we on the math? A lot of money on gas, and a lot of time spent sitting in my car. Square? Continue reading “Eight Trips to Toronto, in Ten Days”
During the last week, I have been looking for apartments in Toronto. It’s never fun looking for apartments, especially in Toronto. The pictures on the websites often don’t match the actual state of the unit, and the listed prices are, at best, relatively close but still less than what you’re actually going to pay each month.
