Is there an end of historic things to do in London?

London, England is one of the biggest most historic metropolises in the world. Yes there are bigger, older, or whatever adjective you’d like to use to argue my opinion, but the fact will remain…no there isn’t an end to the things to do in London.

There’s just such a large population in London by the time you’ve tried something there’s two more places opened up to try something else. Sure this is probably the same for a lot of big cities, but this is my post and I’m going to talk about London. So here’s what I think.

If you’re going to London for the history, you’re going to have an eventful time. London dates back almost 2000 years to Roman times. To put that into perspective for everyone reading in North America, there are buildings in London older than your continent. No not the actual continent itself, but the discovery of it; the discovery of it by Europeans anyway. Native Americans clearly discovered it long ago by I guess just being born on it? But this is getting way off topic!

How do I save money on a cell phone plan?

How someone can save money on a cell phone plan is a topic comes up a lot at work actually. Just about everyone has a cell phone plan and pretty well everyone I know has a data plan with it. These can get expensive, especially if you’re adding multiple gigabytes of data to your plan.  So how do you save money on a cell phone plan? I’ll tell you how I’m doing it.

Back in 2013 when my Blackberry Torch(I know, shameful but I loved the idea of the physical keyboards) started to act up I knew I’d have to get a new phone by the end of its contract term.  Needless to say the Torch was a bit of a disappointment after seeing the phones that came out only a few months after its release.  Although it was great to have a decent camera at all times and access to my email and an easy way to type notes or schedule my days, it froze much too often and was lacking in internet browsing speed.

Have you ever been to a Gopher hole museum?

Gopher Hole Museum

Soo…Have you ever been to a Gopher hole museum?

That’s probably one of the strangest questions I’ll never be asked, which is exactly the reason I feel the urge to bring it up.  Yes I have been to a Gopher hole museum! As far as I know there’s only the one and it’s in Torrington, Alberta.  I’ve got to say it was one of the weirdest fun road trips I’ve done in Alberta since I’ve been living here these last 4 years.

Ok, since you brought it up. What the hell is a Gopher Hole Museum?

It’s a museum for gopher holes, clearly… Read more

How can Professional Athletes going broke help me?

How can Professional Athletes going broke help me?

It’s no big secret that the majority of professional athletes are terrible at maintaining their wealth.  There has been plenty of coverage on it in the media over the last few years.  In April 2012 ESPN aired a documentary called Broke. The documentary interviewed multiple athletes, managers, analysts and  numerous others from a  variety of pro sports about the financial difficulties athletes face throughout their lives.  Sports Illustrated  also posted a popular article in 2009, How (and Why) Athletes go broke and more recently this topic was revisited by NPR.org and The Players Tribune.  All of these provide reasons on how and why athletes go broke.

That’s definitely interesting information, how can this help me?

Well that’s what I’m here to help you out with. There’s tons of information (linked above) and the documentary is interesting as well, but they’ll all take time to read and watch. So here’s my take on five things we can learn from pro athletes going broke. Read more
