I’m still away, but I’ve been keeping in touch with Edmonton via blogs (and a little bit of Twitter). Some finds:
Vickie Laliotis shares a recipe from her mom that even I could make (probably). Photo of the delicacy above, used with permission.
- Also on the theme of mothers and dessert, Valerie Lugonja goes Saskatoon berry-picking with her mom.
- Chris Tse tests his physical and mental strength as an Edmonton Police Service recruit-for-a-day.
- Lowetide riffs on Joni Mitchell to ruminate on what the Oilers have in Nail Yakupov.
- Two vastly different but equally interesting posts from one of my favourite couples:
— Jeff Samsonow finds out how many birthday freebies he can claim.
— Sally Poulsen explores what it takes to write a three-dimensional character.
- The Edmonton Arts Council introduces Juan Lopezdabdoub, the new artist-in-residence at the Mennonite Centre for Newcomers.
- John Harry Kim remembers Norman Main, a longtime member of the Edmonton Table Tennis Club.
- Elise Stolte is starting an urban affairs book club as part of her approach to the beat.
- David Climenhaga is making some changes to Alberta Diary, soon to be known as Alberta Politics.
- And Vintage Edmonton shares a dramatic rescue on the High Level Bridge, among other 1917 gems.
That’s just a teeny-tiny bit of the #yeg blogosphere, selected for my tastes. Find much more at ShareEdmonton.
