Happy New Year!

 I wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope that 2023 brings you joy. The last few years have been difficult for most people, due to the pandemic. Lives have been changed, and plans have been altered. I pray that this will be the year that things return to normal, so that we can make the most of our lives without worrying about putting our health at risk.

Happy Greek Orthodox Easter!

Happy Easter to my fellow Greek Orthodox Christians, and others celebrating the holiday today. This year is particularly difficult with the global pandemic, which is keeping many of us apart from those we love due to social distancing. We pray that next year we will be spending it with all of our friends and family members. It sometimes takes a global crisis like this to remind us to treasure each moment , as we don't know what the future will bring.

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019!

I wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2019!

20 year anniversary

Today is the 20th anniversary of registering my first domain name. It's been quite a ride since then.

Blade Runner 2049

I really enjoyed Blade Runner 2049! Although success at the box office has been muted, perhaps due to its long running time (2 hours and 40 minutes), it's well worth seeing it in IMAX, while it's still on the big screen. Watching it at home doesn't have the same impact.

Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May the holiday season bring you peace and joy.

Everybody Loves A Winner

The Toronto Blue Jays clinched a spot in the postseason for the first time since 1993 (when they won the World Series). Despite a formidable offense, they had a ho-hum season until August, when they became red-hot. General Manager Alex Anthopolous' trades for ace pitcher David Price and all-star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki lit a fire under the rest of the team, propelling them to the top of the American League standings due to strong pitching, an explosive offense, and solid defence. There are still 8 tense games remaining. But if the season ended today, the Blue Jays would have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. This is critical, because the team has a 52-28 win-loss record at home, but is only .500 on the road (37-37 win-loss record). There's a feeling of excitement in Toronto that hasn't been felt in a generation. When the Jays last made the postseason, I was still an undergraduate at university! Let's play ball!
