We’ve got a little addition to the family for the weekend. We are looking after a miniature wire haired dachshund named Lacy. She belongs to a colleague of Dave’s who is away skiing this weekend. The kids are pretty happy to have a pup in the house – we are all enjoying having Lacy here.
Lacy is just a cute little lap dog. Tonight we all watched a movie together for family movie night and Lacy just perched on the back of the couch and had a nice little snooze.

Ginger Beef

Tonight we headed out to celebrate my youngest brother’s birthday. Scott is 0x27 this year (that’s hexadecimal in case you’re not a geek – base 16 counting). We had a nice evening over Chinese food at the Ginger Beef restaurant.  We were joined by some cousins and went back to Gram and Gramps place for birthday cake afterwards.

Happy St Paddy’s Day

We started the day with green waffles!  Thanks, Brenda.

Today is also the anniversary of the day that I started playing the license plate game, 7 years ago.  You might remember my post from last year where I described the rules.  This past year was a good year for spotting plates; I’ve seen 603 plates in order since I started the game.  In the past year that’s 103 plates, well above the long term average of the first 6 years of 83 plates per year.

That brings the new average rate since I began playing up to a little over 86 plates/year (7.2 plates per month) or 1  plate every 4.2 days. Unfortunately, it’s not consistent – sometimes I’ve seen several plates in a day and other times weeks will go by before I find the plate I’m looking for.

By the way, despite the Alberta government claiming that the ABC-123 format plate pool would be exhausted in summer 2009 and that ABC-1234 format plates would be out before 2010, I have not yet seen a plate in the new format.
