I’ve even looked up prices to see a live show of …

Edmonton Expo - Comics and Entertainment -

I finally attended my first Edmonton Expo this year! Mike and I went on Sunday (it was Mike’s second Expo) and had such a great time. We had two main reasons to go: one) to meet Doctor Who’s Jenna Coleman (Clara/The Impossible Girl/Souffle Girl) and two) to hang out with our niece and nephew who are also pretty big into superheroes/comics/etc., thanks to their geeky …

Edmonton Expo

The 4th annual Edmonton Expo returns at the end of the month – bigger and better than ever before!

I like to think that generally I’m pretty geeky (hence the lindork nickname) and certainly I’m passionate about lots of popular culture topics and …

And the restaurants that have sprung up – with their talented, passionate chefs – are (for the most part) creating …

Edmonton Instagram Users

My favourite social network (after Twitter) is Instagram and I’m not alone in this. It now boasts more than 300 million monthly active users worldwide (more than Twitter), with more than 70 million photos shared each and every day. People love sharing their photos. When I use Instagram, I try to be pretty deliberate with my posts. Whereas on Twitter and Facebook I’ll post multiple photos from an …
