I Made Glue

In the interest of being transparent and real, brace yourselves:  most of the time I’m making this up as I go along. For example, tonight we are having a potluck dinner themed “food from a book or movie”.  I picked spaghetti and meatballs from Lady and The Tramp thinking that would be a super easy

Ghost Peppers, Hot Sauce, And A Visit To the Nut Farm.

Unplanned moments typically turn into the best adventures. We carved out a long weekend away to visit Prince Edward County, catch a little sun and fresh air, drink a little wine, sleep in and slow down.  Perfect weekend and we did just that, everything to plane except for Terry. That’s not his real name, but

Day 5 to 8, Berlin: Well This IS Going Too Fast

Early mornings and late meetings swallowed up the rest of the congress.  Sitting through clinical presentations followed by networking with business contacts left not a whole lot of time for sight seeing or blog posts, so here we are.  But I have some amazing things to tell you about.

Day 4, Still More Meetings and a Walk in the Tiergarten

The streets were really quiet, surprisingly nothing is open on Sundays and

Day 2 – Congress, German Food, and I Need a Nap 

Saturday was both great, and exhausting.  Jet lag had me up and raring to go at an ungodly hour, but I used it to collect my thoughts, take an early morning walk, and have a nice slow breakfast that incorporated a whole lot of coffee.   The courtyard in our hotel has a holly bush,

Day One, Hotel California, And The International Language of Pasta

Berlin baby!  After and incredibly long day we arrived somewhat wilted but none the worse for wear. No luggage lost, only minor misadventure, and really too tired to do much more than have dinner and get some sleep. We really are staying at the Hotel California, and that song has been on loop in my

I Didn’t Want To Go Home Anyway

This morning I woke up to a sunny day with lots of potential and the promise of sleeping in my own bed tonight.  This evening I’m hoping that my airline is able to send us a working plane some time this evening that will at least get me back to Canada tonight and home tomorrow
