White Christmas After All.

The ground in Saskatoon wasn't bare of snow.  But there were brown patches in places, and a lot of what was on the ground looked more like spring melt snow than winter snow.  That changed over night, so if you wished for a white Christmas things are probably more to your liking now.  Just don't complain about the snow you're going to shovel.

I hope you're having a nice Christmas day, even if all it is for you is a day off.

Gas In Saskatoon, December 20, 2019.

A drop is always better than an increase, even if it's a tiny one.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 105.9 cents a litre at most locations.  Hopefully there won't be an increase for Christmas week.

Almost Done.

My Christmas shopping is, as it is ever year. limited and simple.  So I only have one more piece to buy.  However I have to wait until Sunday to pick up that last piece.  Fortunately it's easy to find.  Hopefully whatever you've got left to do is equally easy.

Today's Cassette, Friday December 13, 2019.

It was time to listen to something on cassette again after not doing so for a good while.  Tonight it's Phaedra, Tangerine Dream's first release on Virgin Records in 1974.  The album proved a success for both TD and Virgin, reaching 15 on the UK Album Chart that year.  It was also the debut of the sequencer driven sound that the group would become famous for.

Gas In Saskatoon, December 6, 2019.

Prices have wandered around quite a bit this week.  The week started with prices rising to 112.9 cents a litre.  But by today they'd dropped back down to 107.9 cents a litre at most stations.  With Federated Co Op having locked out their workers at the Regina refinery, and replacing them with replacement workers, I suspect we're going to see some price instability over the next few weeks.

No Cyber Monday Either.

No, I didn't do any Cyber Monday shopping either.  Which I'm sure will disappoint whoever it is at Amazon that gave me a bunch of hits today.
