took a liking to the dusty, not terribly affectionate, 10 year old dog back in 2009. Above, he's seen taking him to the vet when the construction dust and human shampoo got him scratching.

Barry has been eating too many burgers.
And our experiments confirmed that I'm not meant for the bike trainer. So we got us a menu board.
It turns out my chalk skills aren't up to par either.
My kale and tempeh cooking skills are a better approach as are my air fried truffle veggie chips.
Bread making is hit or miss, reminding me that I don't like hobbies with a large risk of failure.
Luckily I have wee, inappropriate-looking finger cots for when I try to cut myself up!
After these adventures, I sought zen from our rooftop. Zen rises.
Another kind of zen comes from Hindu temples, and I found a new one this week.
Finally, I found giggles in this sign. Do you think people will get it?

1) Ottawa has an obsession with Shawarma, with nearly 200 restaurants across the city, way more than in Lebanon.
2) Ottawa shawarma is better than what I've sampled in the Middle East or elsewhere.
3) Ottawa is way bigger than Beirut.
4) Ottawa seems to have regional shawarma adaptations, such as increased use of toum and kabees el lift.
