  Happy Spring!! Well, from the Northern Hemisphere of course… The time has finally come when the leaves will grow on trees, the sunlight of each day will last longer and the temperature will rise enough that we won’t have to dawn sweaters, mittens, scarves, boots, hats and thick jackets to avoid turning into a…

The Spork: A Bid Farewell To My Favourite Travel Item

My Spork has broken. It is a sad, sad day. You might thinking, ‘Brock is delusional… he’s mourning a piece of plastic?’ While there may be some validity in that assumption, I’ve still got a case.

The March of ‘Happiness & a Post a Day’ Check-In
