Monthly Roundup! -April 2022

April is finally ending! The weather has warmed up enough so that I could go cycling outside. My record for cycling this year stands at 38.77 km but I hope to be able to cycle farther in May. It’s always a bit rough when you start cycling outside again because while indoor trainers are nice they don’t have wind resistance

The Military Family Services Has Fallen To Autism Speaks

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that Military Family Services (MFRC) has fallen to Autism Speaks. They have partnered with Autism Speaks to make a free downloadable toolkit.

Garmin, Medic Alert and Autistic Health

Oddly enough most people don’t know that Medic Alert Canada is actually partnered with Garmin Canada! The partnership has been out awhile but it’s amazing how neither organization seems to openly promote this.

Oddly enough I even managed to lose a little bit of weight, but I’m

The Poppy and Veterans

How far has society fallen that after a 100 years the sacred Red Poppy needs to be defended? That’s the state of affairs when I opened social media on Remembrance Day. I had to defend the Red Poppy from white/purple poppies. The Poppy is a trademark of the Royal Canadian Legion as well as The Royal British Legion. It’s illegal

Monthly Roundup!- October 2021

So I missed doing a monthly roundup for August and September because I just wasn’t that active. It’s hard to admit but, it’s true and because of that I gained a good amount of weight.. sigh. My weight weight went up like 10 pounds in those two months.. so I’m back to logging my food and being more active. I

Weekly Roundup!

It’s time for another weekly roundup! It’s been an interesting week as the mask requirements has been lifted in some places while still be required in others. I’m going to admit that I love being maskless in stores but then I’m fully vaccinated so there is less risk for me. More importantly though the pool has opened up again which
