A Tech Legend

A Tech Legend I first heard about Paul Allen passing when on the treadmill watching CBC News, I knew who he was, but then I began to think in a few years nobody will remember him. The name Bill Gates is synonymous with Microsoft, but without Paul Allen would Microsoft exist? But that’s for another…

AirBnB – Best of Hotel and Home

A number of years ago we signed up for AirBnB, it was a new service at that time and we were basically just seeing what it was all about. It looked like an interesting way to take a trip and have the benefits of having a proper place to rest and sometimes cook, home from…
