I've finally figured out how to get to sleep

To be honest, I didn’t actually figure it out. Lara told me about it.I have an app on my phone called Deep Sleep. When Lara described it to me, I thought it sounded like such a scam. But I figured that anything that gets her brain to stop turning was worth a shot. 

Imagine my surprise when I realized it works! It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, I listen to this app and fall asleep. 

It’s better than any sleeping pill and works a lot faster. 

There’s a whole bunch of apps - to help you lose weight, build confidence, get over social awkwardness and all of them are to be used when you go to sleep. Do they work? I have no clue and I don’t think I’d even care. To me, it’s worth $3 to get some sleep. 

Some help to Discover Ottawa in 2011 and beyond

This is a postcard I customized in the Discover Ottawa app. Don’t worry - this picture was from last summer. I don’t dress him like this in the winter. :)One of my goals for 2011 is to get out and around greater Ottawa more and really experience the things it has to offer. I’ve relied upon various friends, Kids in the Capital and Local Tourist Ottawa to give me ideas of what is going on or interesting to see around the city. But many of my resources are dependent on people already knowing about what’s going on in advance. And it’s sometimes hard to keep up with my blog reading. Actually, it’s a constant challenge these days.

When I heard that the City of Ottawa was launching an app called Discover Ottawa I was immediately interested. So, I got it and played with it and wrote about it. Read all about it over at Local Tourist Ottawa.
