Brandt’s Randt – Cool Me Down!

I try very hard not to crab and whine when it’s hot and sticky but I can’t help but celebrate this stretch of weather that everybody else seems to be complaining about! 

Sometimes They Get Caught

The news releases we get from OPP detachments fascinate me. Many times they have no relevance to our audience and the issues they concern are so small, they’re not newsworthy.  But once in a while one comes in that’s so unusual, it bears some sort of mention. 

Beyond Tragic Circumstances

It was unexpected, as these incidents always are.  London’s southwest Costco, jammed with Friday afternoon shoppers, suddenly ducking and covering from raining shards of glass as a vehicle backs through the front doors.  How it missed the posts that hold the huge panes of glass, how it ended up going backwards into an area full …

A Box Full of Happiness

My work has brought me a lot of cool things from concert tickets, to clothes, to opportunities to meet special people. And last week, my position as columnist for Sun Media brought me a happy box of stuff that could only appeal to someone like me. 

At Long Last, Freedom

Elephants, like whales and so many other creatures, are sensitive and social and smart and so many people treat them so cruelly.  

Now B3 is Perfect (for me)

When I purchased B3 last year, I knew she needed some attention before she could become a long-term ride. Like houses, motorcycles sometimes need a little renovation before they become what you really want to live in.
