Anyone Know What These Are?
The Roving Reporter writes, "I'm referring to the white arrow on the little green 'sign' on the pole. It is in St Albert and is at least 35 years old. I think there are only two left in town and both are in the same Grandin neighbourhood.

Saving An Iguana Four Miles Offshore

I was coming in from an offshore trip and I noticed a weird shaped object floating in the distance. All I could see were the multiple fins running down its back so I though it was some sort of palm frond, but it just didn't look right.

Is There An Upside
The trick to being successful could, in fact, be simple.

For one month, I declined all in-person activities with friends to see if it would make me more productive.

From my own experience interviewing highly successful artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs I’ve found one of the most common responses to the question of how they can be so prolific to be, ‘well, I don’t have a social life.’
