Jessica, Kevin and Melissa share their thoughts on what was on the Morning News for Monday, May 12.

Dr. Stuart Houston chats with Kevin about his friend and former roommate Farley Mowat

It’s fascinating to get to sit down and speak with a doctor who is connected to the great Farley Mowat.

Mowat, now deceased (though it would have been his 93rd birthday today), was the sort of enigmatic man you’d expect him to be. He drew the attention of those around him, and while I can (though with a speck of shame) say I’ve never read his works, I’m motivated to do so, now.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Mowat. Thank you for being such an influence.

Jessica gets the lowdown on a new curling iron in Saskatoon Style

Diana the Hunter is the new line of tools at Capelli Salon Studio. Sounds like a strong name, and looks like a solid product. I’m actually surprised the design of the curling iron is not more main stream!!

Watch the video to see what I’m talking about, but it looks very easy to use, but also looks like it would take some getting used to, kind of like the curling iron “wand” … ladies, you know what I mean.

Melissa sees what’s on the menu at the Riversdale Deli in Food for Thought

It was a pleasure to meet the Darby’s today at the Riversdale Market. I had a chance to learn so much about baking, deli and one of my favourite things in the world cheese!

Darby taught us how the make the pressed beef sandwich which features locally grown products. After getting a taste I have to say that bread was unbelievable fresh.

One thing they focus on is quality not quantity. They produced 90 loafs a day. So if you are looking to have a sandwich, get it while it’s hot because they may run out of bread!

If you would like to check them out they are located at 101C 20th Street West. They are a great addition in the Riversdale neighborhood.

Bitcoins 101 – Professor David Williams explains bitcoins to Kevin

Professor David Williams from the U of S knows his stuff. His best piece of advice was, ‘wait.’

I’m all for investing in a new kind of currency, especially since it’s down dramatically from where it was just a few months ago – however, this level of instability is something that tells professional marketers and investors to ease back.

Not familiar with BitCoin? Professor Williams explains!
