Screaming Eagles

But not the Cape Breton kind......

I shouldn't have to say this, but just in case, we have bald eagles!  Real life screaming eagles located in Sheffield Mills in the Annapolis Valley. And I am not kidding about the screaming part they... were very loud.
Last weekend (Jan 26 & 27) and this weekend (Feb. 2 & 3) the 20th Annual Eagle Watch is being held, conviently located in Sheffied Mills (Wine Country!) the eagle watch is a great way to spend a winter day.

Way too early on a Saturday morning, we got up to go get a look, and were not disappointed.

Kijiji is the best source for local entertainment when you're at work..

Podcamp HFX 2013

Who gets up at 7:30AM on a Sunday morning to go listen to people talk about all things interwebs? 

Yeah that would be us. This is the third year that we've been to Podcamp HFX and we all agree that it has grown considerably each year. The sessions just keep get better and better. 

If you haven't heard about Podcamp HFX then I'm going to assume you like under a Twitter rock and tell you that it's basically nerd camp for social media nerds. You can follow the link for a full list of the sessions. 

But like any conference there are always hits or misses and we're opinionated people ... so we're going to rate each session we've attended according to our trusty Jedi Ranking rating system (to view last years click here

Team Wintersleep VS Team Matt Mays

UPDATE: You can now vote for Fan Choice Video and Entertainer of the Year at 

That's the heated debate... who do we want to win the Fan Favorite Video of the year at the East Coast Music Awards? We're still undecided but we basically narrowed it down to two... And we love them both...

Pirates vs Privateers... what's the diff?

Navel Battle of Halifax, NS. From Wikipedia

If you’ve ever spent any time in any Pub/Bar/Tavern in downtown Halifax then odds are you probably know most of the lyrics to Barrett’s Privateers. Many of us know the lyrics but do we really understand what they mean? Really though, A Letter of Marque, what’s that? And why did it come from the King if they were going cruise the seas for American gold?

So yeah.. If you’re like me then you probably never really thought about it much either. It’s a drinking song so I’m usually.... well, you know.
