Faith Hill Isn’t Pretty Enough

It makes me very happy that the one conspiracy theory I completely subscribe to is being brought to light little by little.   Someone in the magazine world is exposing the ridiculous measures they go to, to “perfect” already beautiful women.  You don’t think Faith Hill needs touching up?  Well neither do I!   …

Fire Bug

This blog post is a two-fer. It’s also posted on 98.1 Free-FM’s website.  But it felt so good to confess that I thought confessing a second time might feel even better!  In case you’re not aware, the St. Thomas Walmart caught fire last Sunday.  And now you’re up to date. …

Liver Long and Prosper

There is documented proof on this website that I’m not a fan of comic Mike MacDonald. Years ago, I sat stone-faced through his gala set at the Just For Laughs Festival gala in Montreal.  He was never funny to me.  But he has been dubbed Canada’s funniest comic by the adoring press and has thousands of fans.  And my feelings about his act aside, the man needs help and fast.   …

A Bad Week for Disco Lovers

We just lost Donna Summer and now, Robin Gibb. If you grew up in the 70’s you know that The Bee Gees were cool to a lot of people and then they became uncool.  They never lost their cool for me.  I was a fan in the 1970’s, loved them through the 80’s and ever since. In 1991 I was the only music-related industry type in Canada to tell the magazine The Record that the Bee Gees’ High Civilization was on my top 10 albums of the year. …

Toes are Out and About

Some people don’t like feet.  To me, that’s like saying you don’t like skin or eyes.  But I understand it because so many people don’t bother to take care of their feet and they can be damn gross.  Care or not, everyone seems to put them on display as soon as the warm weather arrives.   …

My First Golf Trophy!

OK so it’s not the kind of trophy anyone aspires to win!  Laura Connolly from our sales team organized the first annual Free-FM Mini-Golf tournament out at Tin Cup on Windermere at Adelaide.  We met on Friday afternoon, split into foursomes and took on the 18-hole courses.  There are two complete with windmills, sand traps and water hazards.   …

Trends – The Condo Quickie; Sun Media newspapers

It’s a bit of marketing genius aimed at young professionals. A Toronto design firm has taken the mystery out of turning a condo from a clean slate into a beautiful, albeit small, home.  It’s called The Condo Quickie and it has become the most popular service offered by Isabelle Glinka and her company, Lux Design.  Glinka says she had that “light bulb” moment when she conceived the idea and immediately trademarked the name. …

GUILTY!

Bye-bye Michael Rafferty.  Although your name will now be synonymous with killing a child at least we won’t have to look at your smug face every day.   …
