Simple Comforts

Sometimes you have a bad day—or a bad week.

It’s okay, we all have them.

I’m not going to lie, this past week was rough for me. I have taken on a lot of extra work, and it’s starting to catch up with me.

Beards: They Grow on You

The 34th Beard Growing Contest kicked off at 8pm Friday at the Voyageur Trading Post (Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain).
