We say farewell to the potted artificial palm that served our family well for decades.
Month: July 2013
Wasn’t it just a few days ago when I proclaimed that Venus Rising would not be published on Kobo for a few months? Yeah, well, forget that. It’s on Kobo now!
I’m so proud of my colleagues at Free-FM for the way we handled our night at the 10th annual Rock the Park. We came, we saw, we rocked and I did get to do the one thing I wanted most – meet Tommy Shaw. But it was only because of sheer luck. The band did …
I’m giddy at the thought of tonight. I’ve been very lucky to be able to meet so many of the musical heroes of my youth. And one of them is coming to London to perform at the 10th annual Rock the Park and because Free-FM is presenting tonight’s entertainment, there’s a very good chance I’ll …
I’m really torn about this review. They say film critics are failed film students. Well I wouldn’t call myself failed but I do know how hard it is to write fiction.
A dirtbag by the name of Christopher Gale was finally convicted this week in London of murdering his girlfriend three years ago. He shot her in the head and buried her body in the yard, all the while telling people she ran away. His story unraveled and after a mistrial in March, a jury found …
Real-life heroes and heroines don’t come along very often. 5-year-old Jayden Sink of Topeka, Kansas is one of mine. Here’s why:
Venus Rising: The humble beginnings of self-made women, is now on sale as a Kindle eBook.

Everyone, meet Darby. Darby, everyone. Darby is Spice’s cousin! She’s the fur-baby of a brother and sister-in-law on hubby’s side.
Saturday’s balloon ride required us to get up around 4:30 am so we could make it to the other end of the city for 5:30 am. This wasn’t too far from our regular weekday routine except that we couldn’t have much coffee because we didn’t want to go up with full bladders. By the time …
Did you hear about the 3 wannabe Canadians who don’t want to pledge allegiance to the Queen? They claim it’s against their rights. What rights?!?!? Grrrrr. It’s the subject of this week’s Brandt’s Randt.
Slowly we’re clearing away some forgotten stuff from the basement. There has been talk of shelf building and that sort of thing. Looking around under the stairs the other day I found a handful of magazines. Some are comics (worthless, I checked) and one is a Woman’s Day from March 11, 1980.
So the sixth time was the charm! After five cancellations because of weather, my milestone birthday gift got off the ground on Saturday morning.
A Windsor man was treated pretty poorly last weekend. All he wanted to do was see some really cool Lego buildings and things and he was unfairly profiled!
Here she is. My third motorcycle in five years: B3!
We had a pension plan session at work yesterday. I remember sitting through these things 25 years ago and wishing for a meteor to crash through the ceiling and take me out. That’s how boring it was! But at this stage of the game, one is better off paying attention.
