BEWARE THE SHOWER HEAD!

Shower head
A new study of shower heads has discovered that about 20% of those investigated contain disease-causing mycobacterium stuck there in their own slime. A University of Colorado study says microbes are everywhere, so finding them in showers is no surprise, but finding them in such large numbers is. Some strains of the bacteria can cause lung disease and showerheads ‘aerosolize’ them, making them easy to inhale. A couple of tips: Microbes grow much better on plastic rather than metal; and the first burst of water is the most microbe-concentrated. For the average person this isn’t a concern, but people with health issues may want to change showerheads every 6 months or so. (I don’t even wanna guess what’s lurking in the drain!)

Humboldt Touch Football League Awards Night!

FishBowlSept5Fishbowl Cup.

Boston Pizza, the Official Sponsor of the Humboldt Touch Football League is hosting the 1st HTFL Awards Night on Saturday, September 13th at 7:00pm.

The evening will feature a pizza, pasta, salad buffet... that means all you can eat for $20. Half of that ($10 for those who struggle with math like Andy Cohen) will go towards the HTFL, with a portion of that going to support the team that will represent both the league and the City of Humboldt at the provincial championships in Moose Jaw on October 4th and 5th.

Following the awards night, an after-party will be held in the lounge, and will feature the opportunity to win prizes, such as an autographed picture of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

Evan Nyhus, the smooth operator of the Humboldt Boston Pizza has asked myself, Tyler Bieber, to be the local "celebrity" host of the evening. After he called me a celebrity, my hat size went up for some weird reason. Not sure why.

"I had no part in this, why do you have a recorder in front of me, what is this all about," said Nyhus.

Conveniently, there is a CFL doubleheader on Saturday night, with the Calgary Stampeders hosting the Toronto Argonauts at 5:00pm, followed by the BC Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers at 8:00pm. Sounds like a perfect night to me.

On Sunday, September 7th, Team Boston Pizza defeated the Untouchables 21-14 to claim the inaugural Fishbowl Cup, as champions of the league.

 

Puppy Love

Yesterday (Sept 6th) the Humboldt SPCA held a "Dogs Day in the Park"

Owners and their pooch's were invited to Water Ridge Park for the afternoon to enjoy the fresh air, a BBQ and some owners and their dogs took part in some competitions.

The reason behind the event was to raise money for the Humboldt SPCA, a great idea!

Here are some photos I took, I couldn't stay long, so if your dog isn't in here sorry!

Pugs are Awesome!

pugly

I have many conversations with my co workers in the office, today Andy, Tyler and I discussed pugs.

"It's like they ran into a frying pan" - Andy Cohen.

Now, I know pugs may be funny looking, they are somewhat ugly BUT that's what makes them so cute!

They snort, waddle around and have bug eyes. Lots of character right?

If you disagree here is a video, to change your mind.

Have a wonderful pugly day!

My Canadian Bucket List!

god bless

We live in the 2nd largest country in the world, pretty impressive if you ask me!

I can totally understand why most Canadians have never been abroad, I mean really, this country is so impressive. From the maritimes, to the praries, and of course the rockies! It can take a life time to travel around the country to take in the culture, history and the gorgeous landscapes.

I have made myself a Canadian bucket list, cause why the heck not. Some of them I have done already!

 

  • Gallop across the prairies shouting "yeeehaa" - Check
  • Bungee Jump in Wakefield Quebec - So I read this, sounds fun. I would probably cry like a baby though.
  • Go on a polar bear safari near Churchill, Manitoba - Manitoba has Polar Bears...WHAT???
  • Visit the hot springs in the Canadian Rockies - Check!
  • Spend a night in the Hôtel de Glace in Québec - An ice hotel, well, I live in Saskatchewan now, I can handle it...right?
  • Snorkel or scuba through Tobermory Bay in Ontario - I have snorkeled and scuba dives in Egypt and Turkey. But looking at shipwrecks sounds pretty cool!
  • See the northern lights! - One day I will see them!
  • Dog sled
  • Visit the Calgary Stampede - Now this I must see!
  • Largest Dinosaur! - Check, I sat on his foot!

Ok so that's not even half of it! Canada is amazing and I am fortunate enough to have moved here and have the opportunity the experience it. 

Thanks Canada!

School Zones are Back Ya'll!

school zone

Parents across the province are celebrating the fact that school starts this week, their kids on the other hand.... not so much.

The summer holidays are at an end, now it's back to reality. Homework, sports clubs, detentions, and the whole "you're in grade 12 now, what are you doing when you graduate". Which may seem like a straight forward question, but in reality, it's the worst question. And those of us who are done school realise what it means,  your last year of freedom before you're an adult. Wonderful.

Anyway, lets get back on track.

School Zones! Something all drivers have to take into consideration. Now, I know that driving 30km/h may seem like you're racing a snail, but it's a safe speed,and keeping kids safe is important! Did you know that;

Up to 70 km/h = $190 + $2 for every km/h over the limit.
Over 70 km/h = $328 + $4 for every km/h over.

Now that's a lot of money, so don't speed. Simple.

Also those cool yellow buses you Canadians have out here (It's like being in a movie) make sure you're keeping an eye out for those too.

Here's the Saskatchewan school zone safety laws.

Remember drivers, follow the law. Keep yourself and all the children safe!

Why You Want Summer to End ( You Just Don't Know it Yet)

YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IT YET; BUT THERE ARE MANY REASONS YOU CAN’T WAIT FOR SUMMER TO END:


• Tailgating – Grilling is great, but grilling + sports + getting way too competitive = even better.
• Hot Cocoa – Not the most ideal drink whe the humidex is 40+
• Halloween Candy – The only time it’s acceptable to have candy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
• Apple Picking – If you don’t pick your own apples, then you’re doing Fall all wrong.
• Holiday Leftovers – Mashed potatoes for days. Cranberry sauce on everything.
• Hot Soup – Not to mention cheddar broccoli bread bowls that’ll warm you up anytime.
• Pumpkin Pie – Might as well pop that top button on your pants now. It’s almost pie time.
• Pumpkin Spice Lattés – The first time each year that you catch a whiff of that pumpkin aroma, it’s magic.
• Mulled Wine – The perfect beverage for every Autumn party or family get-together.
• No More Hot Dogs – Bye-bye, Summer. We’ll be wanting you and your weenies again next year. Until then … so long tube steak!
