It would seem that a lot of people are back at it in September, as I found more Edmonton blog posts than ever to highlight this week:
Lillian beautifully documented her colourful visit to the Green & Gold Community Garden on Beyond Umami. (Image by Lillian, used with permission.)
More on how and what we eat:
- On Button Soup, Allan Suddaby ruminates about rhubarb.
- Donloree Hoffman recommends a sane way to proceed in nutrition, in fitness and in life.
And that brings us to sports and recreation:
- OilersNation defines all of those advanced stats terms you may have heard heading into hockey season.
- On Copper & Blue, Curtis LeBlanc summarizes what the Oilers have to fix tactically to succeed this season.
- Vintage Edmonton rounds up some great football highlights from newspapers past.
- Frugal Edmonton Mama lists the best indoor pools in Metro Edmonton.
On the interesting people front:
- The Noteworthy visits with the delightful and sharp Omar Mouallem.
- Jay Runham chats with comic book artist Chip Zdarsky, who is coming to the Edmonton Expo (and, we learn, returning to his birthplace).
- Justine Barber of Poppy Barley gave a great talk on designing a creative business at a recent PARK event.
- Mack Male quizzes Global Edmonton news director Michael Fulmes on the station’s 40th anniversary.
- Adam Rozenhart shares what he learned from VEDA (Vlog Every Day in August).
- Laura Frey reviews Laurence Miall’s Blind Spot, and examines what rating a novel means to her.
- Elise Stolte has an interesting discussion going on the pros and cons of a high-frequency bus network.
- And Dave Cournoyer wraps up the PC leadership race that put Jim Prentice in the premier’s chair. (Speaking of which, what do you think of Rocketfuel Games’s Aura of Power game? It’s on iOS and Android.)
- Late addition: Duncan Kinney makes a persuasive case for the power of disclosure.
