Eating Flies @ Lemoine Point
Eating Flies @ Lemoine Point

Kingston is experiencing some kind of fly breeding season.  Millions of these little bastards are infesting the airspaces and while they are merely a nuisance to pedestrians, they are down right nasty when you are riding.  I rode out to Lemoine Point this afternoon and came back covered head to toe in little black flies.  […]

Wolfram|Alpha

It’s not new, and I wouldn’t say it is as good at tangling one up within the depths of the internet as Wikipedia…and it probably isn’t quite there yet on the technology side…but Wolfram|Alpha is pretty neat.

Beer Tasting with Big Rock Brewery

Every once in awhile Queen’s Alumni Association holds events such as networking 101, wine tasting and how to tie-a-tie.  I’m already quite good with the double windsor, and I don’t like wine.  There.  I said it. I do like beer and was quite happy when I heard that Big Rock Brewery was holding a beer-tasting […]
