Workers and Resources: Soviet Republic

Gaming

What a great game this is! Honestly, this is pretty much my ideal game. Long ago I posted about my ideal game. At the same time I also posted the idea to some forums on Steam. I recall someone said that they had a good idea in response to my post. And a few years later this game was born! Perhaps I inspired them to create it! I hope so. Read more


Super Early Spring!

Blog and Journal Adventures

This winter has been super mild. With the exception of a 2 week long storm in January, we have had a lovely winter. Seeing Crocus' flowers bloom in February was impressive, and also meant the start of Maple Sugar season was indeed early. I was boiling sap on the 11th of February! I am still collecting sap now too, but some days it is slow. So far from my single maple sugar tree, with a single tap I have collected six, fifteen gallon buckets of sap. I have boiled some of it down, and plan on boiling it down to finished bottles at the end of the collection period. Luckily maple syrup is one such thing that can be processed in stages to reduce it, and reduce it more.

Bono

Blog and Journal

I am recalling this from the depths of my youthful memory. I was about 24 years old, and still working at the radio station. I was a Broadcast Engineer for Standard Radio Inc, which owned CFRB 1010 AM, Mix 99.9 FM and EZ Rock 97.3 in Toronto at the time. My duties were wide ranging. My tasks included maintaining the transmitters, both in the CN tower and at the CFRB's site in Clarksville, Ontario. I also maintained the studio equipment, took care of all the locks and security devices for the radio station, cleaned the studios, and took care of equipment inventory. I repaired broken equipment, which most often was headphones. I ordered balanced broadcast lines for remotes, or ISDN lines for live music events. I also often set up equipment and mixed bands which came in to preform live. Read more


Family Posts

Family

Welcome to the Family Section.

Roadwolf and his family share unique and conservative views regarding to internet presence. While yes, Roadwolf's blog is supposed to be a canvas for him to share his thoughts and stories. At the same time, real life details of his family or livelyhood are generally censored. This is because the internet is a cruel and dangerous place. And because of that, he chooses to be cautious as to how precious topics close to his heart are handled online. His family is one such topic.

However, in this world we live in so many people are used to being able to log into social media and view updates on their family members and loved ones. Well, social media is something we don't do. But we do have this. So, this will be a section specifically designed to be a private, secured topic where 'family' updates will be posted. These include outings, photos, stories and milestones. True family will be welcomed to log in and view and comment on these posts. To request an account, you will need to email me directly at roadwolf@roadwolf.ca. One can also use the new Register feature, however I will still email people who register via that approach to confirm their identity.

We look forward to sharing our special moments with special family members. As for the rest of the blog, it shall remain as it is. Read more

Rowdy Teens

Thoughts and Politics

The first three days of 2024 all brought me close to homicides or attempted homicides. I am no stranger to traumatic events. And at work, I deal with violence, death and drugs on a daily basis. Read more


Teriyaki Curry Beef

Blog and Journal 1

Top Round beef slices - cut into bite sized bits.
Put them into a mixing bowl and add teriyaki sauce, 2 tablespoons of minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon of finely shredded ginger. I also added some MSG, sea salt, and garlic salt.
Let the beef sit and marinade for a little while while it thinks about it's new life as your meal.
Start a pot of rice. 1 cup of rice should do.
I used peanut oil but vegitable oil will work. I used 3 oz, and then browned some sweet onions in a large pan.
Put frozen stir fry veggie mix in a mixing pot, and then pour browned onions and hot oil over frozen veggies - it will help thaw them.
Put beef slices in pan, with the sauce. Stiry fry them until they are still pink in the center, but the edges are cooked.
Dump the veggies and onions back into the pan with the beef.
Add 1 cup of sour cream. 1 tablespoon of curry powder. 1 teaspoon of chili powder, and 1 teaspoon of cayanne pepper. I also added a tablespoon of brown sugar.
Stir and taste test.
When ready add to rice and serve. Read more
