A-Z Blogging Challenge 2013

Gearing up for what will be my 4th A-Z blogging challenge, I’m scratching my head for a theme.

A-Z Victoria musicians has come to mind.  There are so many musicians in Victoria, and the surrounding area. They come together in jams, open mics, and gigs – some driving from Naniamo, Duncan or Sooke – an hour’s drive at the least. Trombone player – Alf Sleigh – comes over on the ferry, from the mainland, to play a gig on Saturday nights with the Bastion Band at the Ocean Island Hostel.

Here’s a video of the band – no Alf – rather Eugene Dowling on tuba and Stephen Brown on keyboard and vocals and Denny Box on drums.  There’s A and B done, and only one band.  It would be really hard to write something like that.  People I’d want to include would be left out, and I’d have to invent people for weird letters , so…


A-Z geekspeak.  Duh.  A totally selfishly motivated activity to help me better understand geekspeak.  There is plenty out there on the www already, without me adding to it!  I can read it rather than write it.


Snapshots from A Day in the Life – things that caught my eye.  We’d definitely be going for content here, what with my old Nokia phone camera!

  • Turnip Pie the Spanish-Way (not)
    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
  • Today’s Whole Foods+
    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
