222 Days

number_222Yep, that’s how long it’s been since I have posted! I honestly do not know where this year has gone! It has flown by in a whirlwind of seasons…here we are coming in to winter already.

The bike is stored in the garage for a while as the snow and ice start to fly here in Ontario (although nothing that’s stuck around so far).

On my drive in to the office today, I saw many early-bird Black Friday shoppers out, and I chuckled …are the savings really worth the crowds and parking hassles? 🙂

I have registered the domain now at www.instanthumanjustaddcoffee.com so hopefully that will drive me to post a bit more regularly.

See you around!

Hump-Day Percolations

See what I did there? Coffee theme in the title…pretty slick, eh? 🙂

Spring is just around the corner. I know it’s officially started, but we apparently have one more cold front coming this weekend up here and I’m standing firm that after that we’re going to see a turn to warmer weather! Of course, I now have the start of a cold, so this is perfect timing…get through this cold while I’m not tempted to ride…then I’ll be ready to go!

I was out for some wings last night with a great group of guys from our church…had a blast just chatting and enjoying the company, and seeing some faces that I realized I hadn’t seen in a while. Catching up is always fun!

Watching some of the hockey games going on at the bar we were at, and seeing the Leafs stromanbeat the Panthers last night (not helping our lottery chances for the first overall draft pick by the way) made me realize how close the regular season opener is for MLB and my Toronto Blue Jays! There’s a buzz around the city as we get closer to the 2016 season, and rightly so – they gave us a great run last year, and fans around Toronto – heck, across Canada – are looking forward to this year with another solid team! Stroman has the nod for the season opener, so what better way to start with his energy on the mound?!

Well, I hope everyone has a great Wednesday, and remember…it’s all downhill from here to the WEEKEND!!

The Stat Connection – WHY?

So, this morning my office commute took over twice the normal time, thanks to a dusting of snow (seriously…it was only about 1-2 inches). Come on folks, we’re Canadian! Our friends on the East Coast are getting dumped on, and I bet they’re doing better than us!

That’s not the topic of today’s post, though…I’m now behind on my day and at a loss for a good topic, so I relied on the ever-popular WordPress Daily Post for inspiration, and lo and behold, when I saw today’s prompt, I thought it would be pretty darn cool to take a look back on this site’s short lifespan to see where my most popular days were (based on visits and views) and maybe get some input from readers on why they received more “action” than others…so without further adieu…the top 3 days on Instant Human, Just Add Coffee [insert drum-roll here]!

Hump-Day Ramblings

While I definitely didn’t walk through a space/ time tear today, I had to take a few moments away from a very busy work day to decompress a little. Today is a very busy day getting loose ends tied up with customers before a short trip to Montreal for our Sales Kickoff event. This is an event we all look forward to each year, as it always seems to be in a new location that somehow outdoes the previous year’s spot! That said, I despise having things not done, so today I don’t leave until all my customers are taken care of.

There are a few other things that have popped into my teeny-tiny brain today as well…no rhyme nor reason that I can think of… Continue reading
