Team Jetpack 104 rockets off

Recently, I had the opportunity to contribute a guest strip for Zac Erickson‘s web comic, Team Jetpack 104. I thought it’d be cool to interview Zac and let Lethbridge in on his work. And since we’re both geeks, we did it using Google Wave (verdict: cool).

Interview is after the jump. Enjoy!

Here’s a nose that doesn’t blow during the winter

It’s getting to be that time of the season again, where rejected reindeer volunteer their time to drive folks inebriated with holiday cheer home, in their own cars no less. Lethbridge’s “Operation Red Nose” kicks off November 27th and runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday up until New Years Eve. So if you plan on …

High-level bridge gets lit once in a while

2009 marked the centennial of the Lethbridge High-Level Bridge. As part of the celebration, somebody thought to light up the bridge at night this past September.

Unfortunately (but not really), I was in Las Vegas at the time so I missed the first lighting. Luckily, this past Remembrance Day they lit it up once again, which I also missed (I forgot).

Thankfully, my colleague Martina Emard took some amazing photos and has allowed me to publish there here!

More photos and thoughts after the jump.

She said, “Nice move.” To which I replied, “That’s the only one I have!”

Today, yours truly met his future ex-wife, Lethbridge’s "So You Think You Can Dance Canada" superstar, Tara-Jean Popowich.

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure

My liver can attest, I’m a connoisseur of beers. Imagine my delight when I discovered that Lethbridge has its own beer festival with over 100 types of domestic and international brews, probably including Old Style Pilsner, one of my dear favourites (among MANY others).   Tickets are only $10 in advance, available at The Wine …
