Photo Blogging Challenge - March

P.J. over at a 'lilhoohaa has initiated a new blog challenge. It's a monthly post of five photos that summarize the month's theme. March's theme was My World. I'm a little late with my submission. I totally forgot about having agreed to participate. I got so used to relaxing after February's 30 Days of Writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike that this completely slipped my mind until I saw Cheryl  Duford's post on Facebook today. Check out P.J.'s blog for the rest of the submissions, including Cheryl's.

Meanwhile, here's mine.

In My World in March Ziva sent me Finnish candy. Here's a pic and you can read about my little taste test experience here.


Unfortunately, while Ziva was very sweet to send me these confections her candies were not. So I proposed to send her in return a real Canadian sweet - a May West.


You'll notice the package even has a picture of Ziva, or at least a picture of what I imagine Ziva to look like. Needless to say we couldn't finish the Finnish candy (heh, heh).

Meanwhile, back where I live in Aylmer, Quebec we got a huge dump of snow in March. How huge? Well here's a couple of photos of the aftermath. The first picture's a matter-of-fact point and shoot to give you some idea of how much snow. The second is my attempt at one of those artsy-fartsy visual compositions that people like Cheryl and Ziva are renowned for. How'd I do guys?



And we closed out the month with an Easter weekend jaunt to COTU (centre of the universe, otherwise known as Toronto) to visit my brother Whitey. What a talented guy. Look at the breakfast he fixed us...


Pea meal bacon - my favourite. And the fruit was an especially nice touch. He impressed Mrs D all to hell. Look what I have to live up to now!

All you late people in the challenge! I'm setting up an e-mail reminder. It's noted on today's post, which has April's theme.

Breakfast looks good. And the snow... it needs to go away!
Ziva said…
Yum, salmiakki! And that May West thingy sure looks good. I've no idea how they got my photo, though.. That's a bit scary.

And I am so proud of you, being all artsy-fartsy with the snow photo!

That's not Ziva in that photo. I don't see a single whip or riding crop.
MikeWJ said…
I'll be posting, too, P.J.

Still can't comment on your blog, tho. Sucks.

Is "late people" politically correct, P.J.?
nonamedufus said…
Artsy-fartsy is my middle name, Ziva. Although at this stage in my life I have a lot of middle names.
nonamedufus said…
Whip? Yeah, whipped chocolate!
nonamedufus said…
Ha, one of the "Late People".
MikeWJ said…
Hey, what's pea meal bacon? I never heard of that.
nonamedufus said…
It's a Canadian thing. So yummy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peameal_bacon

Fascinating to note the differences between two regions of Canada. I'm in Alberta, a long way west of the COTU. I've never heard of May West candy. And we call pea meal bacon "Canadian bacon" or "back bacon" (or, if we're feeling particularly redundant it's "Canadian back bacon"). Nice photos. More snow in the forecast for here later in the week, but the "big melt" is underway at the moment.
nonamedufus said…
I was in Toronto and Kingston on the weekend. Neither have snow. Ours has melted somewhat since those pics but we've still got enough here to delay getting out on the golf course.
Cheryl said…
Feel free to send Whitey down with both his cooking skills and some of those May West's, I love both your 'holy crap' and 'artsy-fartsy' snow photos but please keep that snow to yourself.
nonamedufus said…
Whitey's quite the breakfast specialist. You should see his Eggs Benedict, which he's named Eggs Willowdale after his neighbourhood.
Barb said…
ugh... snow.... to the McMax! Nice pics... mine were posted this morning- I'm late!
nonamedufus said…
Big difference from this time last year, Barb, when the snow was gone and the temp was gorgeous. Winter sucks.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Love the picture of Ziva on the package of Mae Wests! The snow pictures...not so much. And the breakfast? I want me some of that!
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Boom Boom. How's Florida? Nice and warm?
Tami Von Zalez said…
Yep, that is my image of Ziva too (course, sans the whips, chains and STILETTOS!
nonamedufus said…
So, I'm not the only one, then?

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post... The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in. Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All . (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song) Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress... I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparentl

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
