After 14 years together Derek’s cousin Kim, whom we adore, and her wonderful partner Jeff, tied the knot.

It’s the first rule of improv and the key to performing with another person. Whatever they do, wherever they go, say “yes, and” not “no, but”.
Having just recently repaired small holes in a wall and rolled on a fresh coat of paint I was amused by a list I found of everyday items you can substitute for specialty products, like wall filler.
A couple of drunken idiots broke into the radio station this week.
Often times people wonder what Lisa Brandt Creative Services does. I made the name deliberately vague so it could encompass a variety of things.
We had to leave the bathroom window open during the recent resurfacing job. The technician removed the screen and we just left it like that overnight. I had a fleeting thought that a bird could fly right in but dismissed it as silly.
An update on the media coverage of my ebook The Naked Truth. I’ve been on radio in cities across the country and Friday was a very big day.
You have to wonder why some products don’t make it over the border. Last night we met our friend Eddie for dinner in Port Huron – Ed lives in Detroit – and that meant a trip to Target to pick up the laundry potion upon which I’ve come to rely.
When people say they don’t have any style or décor sense I say, nonsense, you just haven’t found your décor guru yet. Thank goodness for the leaders in the field who present an array of options for us to accept or reject and, often unwittingly, define our own style. In an era when it just …
This is a blog posting I published at www.blackburnnews.com and www.981freefm.ca this week under my banner of Morning News Anchor. It just offers a little peek into something that can go on behind the scenes.
Yesterday I tweeted about the kid at the gas station who filled up my tank. He was chatty and it turns out that he is a fan of Free-FM. No one disputed that – our station is terrific – but there was some humour regarding the full service gas station.
I still hate my iPhone. Oh I love a lot of things it can do or I wouldn’t have it but I despise the keyboard. I’ve been an iPhone gal for a few years now and I’m still not used to the onscreen keyboard and I make a lot of mistakes I never made with …
So I’ve shown you the before and the midway point in our main bathroom makeover by Miracle Method. Today we see the finished product.
Yesterday I showed you the “before” from our main floor bathroom. Today, the project begins. Scott from Miracle Method was hard at work when we got home around noon on Thursday. They need two consecutive half-days in order to do the work. We had Thursday morning and Friday afternoon, when we would conveniently be on …
This is the story of our bathroom makeover. We considered everything from ripping out the countertop, tub and surround to Bath Fitter to what-have-you in order to deal with the ugly and worn-out state of the home’s original, main-floor bathroom. The cultured marble counter was still in good shape but it was wearing away around …
Lots of guys collect gas station memorabilia and for the one in this house, it’s Supertest, a company born in London and no longer in existence.
The Naked Truth is my second book and it’s actually about half the length of my first, Celebrity Tantrums: The Official Dirt. So people often ask me how I managed to get so much writing done with such a busy life. Where did I find the time? What’s the secret? Whether you’re a prolific and …
London’s annual Western Fair is on. It’s a 10-day extravaganza much like the CNE but appropriately sized for this area. For us, it’s huge. And every year they offer a different deep-fried delight and Derek and I believe it is our duty to try it.
