Happy Canada Day!

This year Canada turns 151 years old. For a developed nation we are probably in the middle-age range. That sweet spot where you are comfortable in your own skin and confident in your decision making (for the most part). Not too young and reckless and not too old and senile to not make sense of…

This past weekend I celebrated my birthday and wanted to do something to enjoy the nice weather, as this past winter seemed like it would never end. Ever.
