Here we are, the end of June, and that happened in a blink, didn’t it? The speed with which life throws itself behind us as we get older, has irked me for years. So I went to Mr. Google and read the research of scholars and psychology experts linked to respected schools and organizations.

Thursday was one of the weirdest work days I’ve ever had, and that’s saying something!
I’ll surf the web on my smartphone, read a book on my Kobo, pay my bills on my desktop but there’s one technological advancement I won’t accept. I’m drawing the line! And so I randt.
We bought the 1969 Airstream Overlander trailer about a year ago. It’s a 27-footer and in great shape for its advanced age. My hubby and brother tore out the interior and the plan was to rebuild it from the ground up.
If you’re a regular visitor to these pages you might recall previous family reunions with the name “Sharonstock”.
This website and this domain name are close to my heart. The site was created by Robin at Thoroughweb Design in Milton ON and I’d recommend her services in a heartbeat. She’s reasonably priced, she listens and she is just an all-around cool gal. But sometimes change is necessary and not just for its own …
I’ve said it before. Language evolves. It usually evolves because mistakes get accepted. But there are two standouts right now that really bug me. And so I randt!

Last Friday morning, judgment day for Joe Fontana, The Big Show on 98.1 Free-FM had a bit of fun with the Mayor’s plight. Actually, our verdict wheel was a lot of fun and it even got us some ink in The National Post. Everyone who spun got a can of Italian Wedding soup and I …
Now that one of the nastiest and most impolite elections is finally over, I can share with you a few of the lower points of the campaign that you didn’t hear or read.
This is not to lay blame but as a call to action. To wake up. To be aware. To risk looking foolish in case it’s nothing. Because it might be something.
It’s possible that you’ve noticed a love/hate relationship between newspapers and radio stations. At the papers, many believe radio newscasters merely rip off their work and put it on air. (There is basis in fact for this, which I’ll get to later.) At radio stations, there’s a belief that papers will go out of their …
A thoughtful journalist friend recently posted to Facebook a viral YouTube video of a teen playing her guitar and singing. The girl is very attractive and the featured aspect of the video is her ample breasts that wiggle with every motion of her arm. My friend’s question was, is it exploitation if you do it …
Hubby collects items from the now-defunct gas station chain, Supertest. It was founded here in London in 1923 and sold to BP in 1971. The name disappeared two years after that. Original items have become quite pricey and rare. We once admired a gravity-fed original Supertest gas pump at a store in Grand Bend. “Twenty …
It’s three years this week since I returned to a full-time news gig. And instead of growing a tougher skin, time seems to have made me even more sensitive to the stories I read every day. This week has been particularly brutal.
It annoys me when famous people say they’re retiring only to make a comeback. Especially if they’re super wealthy. Just get a sailboat or take up painting or something! Therefore I randt.
