October in Canada: Halloween 2016

Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year. Late enough in Autumn for the leaves to change colour, with just enough chill to remind you that [...], Halloween has always been a festive time of year for me.

Last year, you may remember that my friends and I outfitted a garage, making a haunted tour for children of the neighbourhood outside of Toronto, Canada. Well, this year, with Juliette with us, we stepped up our game, so please, come check out Halloween 2016!

October in Canada: Le tour de la Tour CN!

Part II of the October in Canada series covers our trip to the tallest building in Canada, and the tallest tower in the world between 1975 and 2007! The last few times Juliette had been in Canada, we barely had time to see any of the sights. So, this time, I took a week off work and our first stop was the 457m of fun that is Toronto's CN Tower.

Food in Space

Food. Fewer things on this planet are more representative of people and their cultures than the food we eat. The ingredients, the method of preparation, the perfect wine with which to pair, all the customs surrounding food highlight the intricacies of people, interaction, and biology. But what about food in space? Today, on Embrace Space, we take a look.

Ad Absurdum: Space!

Welcome to another exciting edition of Embrace Space! Today's post will be short as I link you to a podcast I helped make. It's all about space, my thoughts, my experiences, and questions answered! 

It turned out to be one of our longest sessions yet, and while I had suggested the topic as a means of answering Alex's general questions about space, he went for a more personal, interviewing approach for the first half. Still, I think you'll find it interesting and entertaining.

Thanks for stopping by!
