J ordan & Michael wanted a wedding that truely reflected them and the things they love, so they grabbed their children and were married in private on top of a mountain in Canada. “Our inspiration was definitely nature and our love of hiking”, explained the bride. “We chose Gros Morne National Park in the beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador known for its mountainous terrain and unbelievable views.

A few weeks ago we went on a mini family vacay to PEI: the land of potatoes and red dirt. My dad grew up there & almost every summer since we’ve been little we’ve gone back to visit everyone and get away from the city for some beach and countryside. Other than lobster and seafood, PEI is known for their potatoes. We were staying at a beautiful cottage right on the ocean in the middle of nowhere (dirt road in and no neighbours) and we ended up making dinner a few of the nights.

There are two primary axes of political conflict in Kim Stanley Robinson's incomparable Mars trilogy : first, the expected (almost generically required) question of independence vs. interdependence with regard to the mother planet, Earth, which is really a question about Utopia and enclavism that is concretized in the fierce battles over the space elevator ; and second and more relevant for my purposes today is the fierce break between the Red Martians and the Green Martians. The Greens believe the planet should be terraformed so as to inhabitable by humans without mechanical assistance, a technical problem that clumps around issues of surface temperature, atmospheric composition and density, and unpredictable climactic feedback mechanisms; the Reds believe the planet should be left as pristine as possible, whether because this is the only way it can be properly studied or because the otherwise dead rock is seen by some Reds to have a kind of mystical vitality all its own.
Over at the blog Born This Way a proud gay Angeleno, identified only as Paul V., publishes childhood photos and stories from gay and lesbian adults. Many of the photos feature young kids innocently flouting heteronormative gender expectations with total abandon (see above). But interspersed among them are pictures of children that give no hint about their eventual sexual identity. As Paul explains:
It came to my attention today that my account was hacked. I apologize for the spam post and the emails sent out to my (few yet greatly loved) followers. I guess that’s what I get for having not blogged in a while. To make up for it, and to make my activity known on here, here are several pictures from our trip to the Amalfi Coast which we visited last weekend. I promise to actually blog again soon.
With the number of people in need these days and the winter coming on, I've been especially on the lookout lately for warm clothes, blankets and the like--and so I'm pleased by the haul from my last three scrounge rides (Saturday, Sunday, and today--Tuesday). Today I found in a dumpster four trash bags stuffed with men's clothes, and managed to haul home wool sweaters, lined jackets, dress shirts, hoodies, jeans, and more. Saturday and Sunday I likewise scrounged a clean blanket and a fleece-lined windbreaker.
In Canada’s cities, prices in the older urban areas as well as the suburbs generally stagnated for over a decade between the early 1990s and early 2000s. Not coincidentally, during this time an abundance of new housing opened in suburbs like Milton and Markham (Toronto area) as well as Coquitlam and Surrey (Vancouver area). Calgary annexed more land, and suburban style homes proliferated. Metro area residents did not seem to show much of a preference for urban vs suburban living. Starting in around 2002 prices everywhere began to rise, but over time the urbanized areas experienced more rapid increases. I know of homes in walkable East Vancouver communities that tripled in value over just 6-7 years.
Corbin is now 2 years old, and each day he seems to learn something new. Thankfully, he has not started repeating swear words yet, but he does love to entertain and make people laugh. So I thought it would be a good idea to keep track of all the funny things he does so I can use them as blackmail ammunition later on in life. As anyone who follows me on twitter knows, I bake my own bread. Corbin loves my bread so much so that he would live on nothing but bread and apple juice if I let him. Last week, he managed to steel an entire loaf off the counter, and scoop out the middle of it.
In 2005, my husband Logan and I, lived a normal middle class lifestyle. We were newlyweds with flashy rings , living in a two-bedroom apartment, driving two cars, commuting long distances to work and living well beyond our means. At this time, we were living in Davis, California, which is notorious for expensive real estate and a negative vacancy rating. We were living a life with too much stuff and stress. Initially, we resisted the idea of moving into a smaller one-bedroom apartment because we were more concerned about appearances and space for guests than for our financial well-being. We decided something needed to change once we realized our debt was causing us so much stress.
