Probably not. But now scientists can find out for sure! New research has found that there are microscopic structures hidden in the bones of dinosaurs that contain hued pigments.

The Albert Diner is by far one of our favourite places to eat. Not only is it right across the street, but it’s also delicious! The staff there are extremely friendly and the dining area is located in the sun lit façade.
But things haven’t always been this pretty for the diner. It recently had to undergo a switching of the hands along with a make over by our Thom and his Nils. Thankfully, the dust has settled and we can eat.
They offer a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian options along with some great local grass-fed meat options. Not to mention their daily specials. The yam fries with their very special lemon basil aioli sauce is highly recommended. I dream about this stuff at night. All in all it was a great tasting time, as expected.
I love Winnipeg. Why? Because I can get practically any Star Wars character custom made out of needle felt. For some reason, when asked which character I would like by Kornelius von Bergen (the creator of these fantastic Star Wars homages), the only character I could think of was Admiral Ackbar. And I couldn’t be happier.
Kornelius von Bergen belongs to a crew of needle felters/crafters, including Lisa King (the one who makes those mustache necklaces that we featured earlier in the year. Take a swing by their blog to check out more crafts.
Word on the street is dolphins are genetically more like humans than any other land animal. A new study has scientists suggesting that we refer to them has “non-human persons” due to their vast intelligence. This makes chimpanzees look like uncles-in-law compared to dolphins when it comes to relating ourselves to the animal kingdom. Read more about how great our new wild creature cousins are here.
We tried sending our books to a friend in Rio before the holidays. We’ve been wondering where it might be for this past week. Today we got an answer.
Eating Out Winnipeg is a new feature on our blog in which we showcase the ups and downs of eating out in Winnipeg. We will be documenting our lunch experiences every Wednesday. First up: Kawaii Crepe.
Kawaii Crepe is a new local eatery that serves up both sweet and savory crepes. It just recently popped up on Osborne Street near River Avenue. The food is quite delicious with names to match such as the Tofu Dill-Lite, Chickplease and Hit Me Baby One More Thai.
Chris Kroeker highly recommends ordering from the all-day breakfast menu while Thom’s favorite pick is A Lovely Pear off of the “Sweet” menu. Andrew, being the rebel of the group, decided to create a custom crepe of his own. I’d like to mention that it is a great place to get your bubble tea fix.
As far as the look goes, I think they nailed it. The interior is bright and fairly simple. It is a great addition to the visage of Osborne street and adds a much needed “friendly” vibe.
Unfortunately, it’s quite far from our office, so we don’t get to go there for lunch as often as we’d like. But we definitely recommend it. Check out their menu right over here.
Here! Enjoy some behind-the-scenes photographs (taken by Thom) of our office portraits photo shoot (taken by Mark).
