Gas In Saskatoon, March 29, 2019.

I'm sure no one will be surprised to see prices have gone up.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 119.9 cents a litre at most stations.  On the first Friday of 2019 it was 97.1 cents.  Some sources expect it may be in the 130 cents a litre range by mid April.

It Could Have Been Better.

Baseball season is here.  Unfortunately the Blue Jays lost their home opener this afternoon against Detroit.  But it actually was a good game.  There was no score into extra innings because the Blue Jays and Tigers played well, not because both teams played equally horribly.   And Toronto hasn't won a home opener since 2011, so we probably shouldn't be surprised they didn't win this one.

Cool, I actually have a Detroit Tigers tag.

Up From Below.

I saw my first gopher of the year today.  It was standing outside its burrow, looking for whatever it was looking for.  Hopefully it hasn't come up too early.  And it may not be living in the best place, just on the edge of the University of Saskatchewan campus.  I'm pretty sure U of S groundskeepers have taken pest control measures against their burrows in the past, such as by the bus stop in front of the main library building.

Gas In Saskatoon, March 22, 2019.

Filling your tank got a bit more painful this week.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 114.9 cents a litre at most stations.  I won't be surprised if another increase is in the offing.

I'm So Out Of TV Touch.

This morning I came across an article about how the show SMILF, seen on the Showtime channel in the US, has been cancelled amidst allegations of misconduct against the creator and talk of questionable activities on the set.

Seeing the article was the first time I'd heard of the show.  To be fair it apparently aired in Canada on Crave, a service I don't have.  But it made me think about how much TV has changed.  I can remember a time when CBC and CTV were Canada's TV networks, and the US networks were NBC, CBS, and ABC.  So it was a lot easier to know what was actually airing.  These days you have who knows how many networks and speciality channels, and the streaming services like Netflix are producing their own material.  It's gotten to a point where you probably need to be a professional, or an obsessive TV junkie, to know and keep track of what's going on.

In my case it doesn't help that I don't really watch dramatic TV anymore.  I just can't seem to hook on to any series.  I thought I might watch Magnum PI to some extent, but a couple episodes was all I got around to.  A couple of years ago I had the idea that I would just pick one show and watch the whole season of it.  I may have to consider doing that again next fall.
