Some Things are Not Blog Worthy…

Posted by Les Becker on October 28, 2006 in School |

. . . Okay, I’ve neglected the blog. It’s not that I’ve been too busy (although I’ve been busier the last two weeks than I’ve been in a long time). And it’s not that I’ve been cleaning my house, either, which my kid is sure to start a brand new blog about soon, if I […]


Day Two C’est Fini…

Posted by Les Becker on October 17, 2006 in School |

. . . I’m not enrolled in French, so I don’t care if that title is correct or not… but I got through Day Two in better fashion than yesterday. Once I left the school yesterday, the assistant to the Director called me at home to tell me everything got set up, so I logged […]


It’s Never What You Expect, Is It?

Posted by Les Becker on October 16, 2006 in School |

. . . Well, this was an odd day, to say the least… It was to be my first day of school, and I was up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to be ready to make my appearance at 9:30. My “normal” school day will be from 9 am to 2 pm or so, but today I […]


The Pressure is Off…

Posted by Les Becker on October 14, 2006 in Photography, Real Life, School |

. . . Well, some of it, anyway. I had my interview with the Biggest Wig in the complicated trail of paper to apply to get these courses I want. It was a long and freaky-deaky time for me, waiting to find out if they would allow me to do this, because I wanted two […]


The Shake Down…

I caught my sister smoking today. If the money doesn’t come through, I’m gonna tell on her, for serious.

On Having Too Much Time on One’s Hands…

Posted by Les Becker on September 14, 2006 in Video..., Wasted Time... |

. . . Okay, so I’m all for neat tricks and all, but really…. Why?! Note: This video has been replaced, since the original link is now broken. Times mentioned in the comments now make no sense. Sorry…


Aaaack! Aaaack! Aaaack! Aaaack! Aaaack!

Posted by Les Becker on August 30, 2006 in Real Life, School, Wasted Time... |

Yes, that’s me screaming. I’ve lost all capability of scheduling my time. At the worst possible time, too. I have several articles started; some being flashes of absolute brilliance that I was bright enough to jot down into notepad while still blinded by the brilliance. Of course, on second, sober, daylight read-through, I realize that […]


The BuskerFest Blogelation – Update

Well, it’s all over except for the rendering… LOL! I’ve had an incredibly wonderful weekend, and the only disappointment has been that it’s all over. . . Except for the hard part. I have gotten behind (what else is new?), but this time, at least, it’s not entirely my fault. I can blame it all […]


Blogelation – Buskerfest 2006 – Day 2

Kids by the droves today! I couldn’t get them all to stand still enough to get good shots. These ones were both patient and happy. Usually, where kids are concerned, those two things don’t necessarily go together. She tried real hard not to let me take her picture, but I managed. She agreed to let […]


Blogelation – Buskerfest 2006 – Day 1

I’m cheating. “Today” is “Tomorrow”. Cujo will know exactly what I mean. I had a back and forth email conversation with a friend the other day about how time gets away from us, and, you know, I wish I had a way to just pause things for the rest of you so I could get […]


The Blogelation and Kenny vs Spenny

Posted by Les Becker on August 9, 2006 in CANADA, Sault Ste. Marie Ontario, The Blogelation - 2006, Vicarious Tourism |

Kenny, of Kenny vs Spenny, himself is visiting our fair city this very day to take on one of our local boys in an arm wrestling match, for no good reason other than that this sweet little 14-year-old kid shares the same name as Kenny’s best bud/arch enemy, Spencer Rice, AKA “Spenny”. Soo Spenny is […]

Let the Blogelation Begin!

The Blogelation!! T-minus 8 hours or some such, folks! I’m getting very excited. There’s going to be some really good music at RotaryFest tonight. As an “Official Guerilla Journalist”, I’ll be covering Second Stage between 5 and 11. I have not yet had the chance to hear any of these bands so far, and being […]
