The work continues ...

Things seen didn't know ...

seen didn't know that Kraft dinner is a food that can bring natural enemies together and make them drop arms.


The NLC Winefest

The Winefest kicked off Wednesday night. The first night always features a table of special *ahem* more expensive vintages. This eyar was no exception with on bottle hitting a $1,900.

The bottles in this basket were nowhere near that price.


The St. John's International Women's Film festival

You like movies? The St. John's Women's Film Festival has been going full tilt all this week, ending this weekend. The opening night gala had an international flavour this year with a showing of Deepa Mehta's epic film: Midnight's Children.

Here's is the film's writer and internationally renown author Salman Rushdie offering greetings to St. John's.

Memories of ... a commercial

The people from President's Choice were in town shooting a Christmas commercial. They were on Gower Street at the end towards the Masonic Temple. seen came upon the shoot a bit late, lured by Twitter rumours of free food. Alas we showed up just as things were wrapping up.


Cape to Cabot

On Sunday, runners braved colder than we're used to temperatures and high, high winds to run from Cape Spear to Signal Hill. That's 20 km of ups and downs with that big hill up to Signal Hill at the end. This year's winner was David Freake in a time of 1:17:39. We have a photo of David, but that about it. seen's Ted Blades said the runners were coming in so quickly he didn't have time to snap any others.

Still stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner on the weekend? We here at seen are. But we'd still like to celebrate the weekend just passed. This being the best summer in years, if not ever, we were able to cook using completely local products. Here are shots of the St. John's Farmer's market where we were able to access everything we needed.
