I had been eyeing this piece for a long time now and finally decided (after going in to the store “just to look”) to pick it up. It took a lot longer, more than three hours, to complete it as there are 590 pieces and some of them very small.
I continue to enjoy Good Food which I switched to from the Hello Fresh meal kit recently. The variety is refreshing and I end up making a lot of things I never would have otherwise. Here are a few recent meals for those of you disinterested in seeing them out there.
For the past year I was a Hello Fresh customer until I started to learn more about their anti-union practices and the seriously awful way they treat employees at the processing centres. I immediately cancelled and started to look around for another meal kit company while avoiding Chef’s Plate which is also owned by Hello Fresh.
So I ended up with Good Food, a Canadian company no less which made me feel better. Their menu and sign up choices are a little more confusing but I found the selection to be far more interesting. Better yet you can order fully cooked items, breakfast and more.
Another pandemic Halloween with none of the tradition to go along with it. No trip to Disney, no Fright Nights at the PNE, no Ghost Train in Stanley Park. Perhaps next year things can get back to normal. However, I do recall saying the same thing last year.

The Angry Video Game Nerd (aka James Rolfe) is likely the most obscure figure in my collection. I couldn’t resist getting it when I saw it for sale. He started his YouTube channel in 2004 and currently has more than 190 episodes of this character critiquing bad video games.
One of the originals and still one of the best.
