New bus stop system

This is the first week with the new bus stop system, and I must say that I love it. Even as a frequent user, I find it useful. The announcements aren't overly intrusive, and the sign is very informative. It's only on a few buses right now, but it should be fleet-wide by February.

Palate cleanser

Peonies at the corner of our house.

Single petaled, not doubled like the ones I'm used to.

If you're vegetarian, you might want to look away

So this past weekend, I was up at a cottage near Notre-Dame-de-Laus for a yearly cottage getaway with the gaming crew. J decided that he would BBQ some ribs, and purchased some boneless beef ribs. Here is the result:

 

 

 It was good, though I don't think I want to see that much meat again for a very long time.

Wrong type of bus

Dear OC Transpo,

This is the wrong type of bus to use for the 96 Stittsville at this time of night. Middle of the day? Maybe. Evening? Sure! Rush Hour? FAIL!

We've passed by a lot of pissed people because there is no room. Try again, this time with a bigger bus!
