Lunch Blog

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

I’ve started a new lunch blog! I encourage you to check it out at mattclare.ca/lunch-blog/

The site is obviously more of a joke at the expense of my daily lunch at Brock University of two penut butter and jam sandwiches that I slather in double fruit jam and chunky penut butter before I leave for work each morning.

The blog was built using Bootstrap, from the developers at Twitter. Bootstrap was created to help people build web responsive web sites easier, better, and faster. You can read more at twitter.github.com/bootstrap/

The blog itself simply uses a Bootstrap example, two pictures I took with my phone yesterday, a little CSS to apply the pictures to the backgrounds of the right divs, and some PHP to dynamically create “dated” posts. The PHP is key to the ability to review older posts and the short reviews of each lunch. The source is posted here mattclare.ca/lunch-blog/index.phps .

All and all, a positive experience and I look forward to bootstrapping more sites.

Ron MacLean saves a man, all I can do is make fun of him

Friday, June 4th, 2010

During lunch with Don Cherry in Philadelphia Ron MacLean responded to someone looking for help to save a drowning man by jumping into the Delaware to save the man who was apparently trying to take his life. Written up here: www.theprovince.com/mobile/story.html?id=3108588

My response was to make fun of this man who is national treasure:

  1. Ron MacLean jumps into the Delaware river to save a man while Don Cherry stands on shore and signals rescue aircraft with his jacket.
  2. Ron MacLean was able to rescue that guy because he is used to working with dead weight.
  3. Ron MacLean was able to be cool under pressure because he’s used to working with the man beside him complaining that he’s running out of time.
  4. Run MacLean asked the man he pulled out of the river in Philadelphia if he received a “brotherly shove”. The man asked to be thrown back.
  5. Run MacLean saved this mans life, but he was trying to take his life. Bud Selig, commissioner of Major League Baseball, has ruled “too bad” he still has to die.

Goodbye Tony Blair

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

GiftTony Blair was at the White-House today meeting with George Bush for one final time before he steps down as British Prime Minister.

Bush owes a lot to Blair, as Blair was on-side with the invasion of Iraq ever since he first saw the Iraq Dossier. As such, Bush got him a retirement gift.

Tony Blair has seen what’s in the gift, but he cannot disclose its contents at this time.

Take a stand as his co-conspirators do!
