  • Sometimes its best to move on from certain friends in your life.  Just time to say goodbye.
  • Another great game by the Bombers; I don’t think anybody saw this 7 game winning streak coming, but it sure is fun watching this team play inspired football.
  • There are some people you just feel safe letting your walls down for…they inspire trust and respect; very cathartic having people like that in your life.

  • So glad I booked Puerto Vallarta again for this winter…if not for two very special angels in my life, Laine and Ben, I would be living down in Mexico, no discussion.
  • Having over 1200 followers of this blog inspires my writing every day.  I went on a little bit of a baseball run there for a few weeks, but that only brought out a new audience for me.  Over 61,000 views…humbling and exciting.
  • Looking forward to reading Bruce Springsteen’s new book, Born to Run.
  • I have never seen an election like what is going on in the States right now; having taken many American history courses, studied American politics and watched intently every election for decades…this election of 2016 is incomprehensible.  Ethical standards have gone by the wayside, political operatives are in disarray and everything that political insiders thought they knew about elections has blown up in their face.  I dare say this has brought out the ugly side of the United States and I fear for what will happen When Donald Trump loses the election…could be very scary folks.
  • Republican presidential candidate Trump gestures and declares "You're fired!" at a rally in Manchester

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump…ask yourself, is this presidential?


  • Living on the 8th floor of my condo building, I look out over the downtown and the leaves are beginning to turn and the colours are bombarding the senses, just breathtaking.
  • Have met through Faceback,  a very inspiring lady with whom I want to bring to light many of the serious issues which face our Aboriginal population.  Look forward to it Leah.
  • So, John Tortarella benched Big Buff for the U.S game against Team Europe; how’d that work out John?  3-0 loss…with Buff not dressed.  You really are a genius, aren’t you…ya think Buff will be fired up this season when the Jets play Columbus?
  • Buff
  • Sometimes when you want something really badly, you try to force things…best to just let it take its own course and see where fate takes things.
  • You rock my world N!!!
  • W.P. Kinsella passed away this week; the author of Shoeless Joe…have read that so many times and in fact…taught it to a couple of my Grade 12 classes; for those who didn’t know, it was also the inspiration for the movie Field of Dreams.  RIP sir.
  • shoeless-joe
  • Watching parents getting old is heartbreaking; as difficult as it was when Dad suddenly passed away in his sleep at 79, watching mom go downhill at a pretty rapid rate lately, at 91 years old…is even harder.
  • Sometimes you gotta “Netlix…and escape from reality” for awhile.
  • “Does she know?”…she knows now…clearly shared from my heart.
  • Big Ben turning 8 this week, wow!!!  What an amazing kid he is!! Love ya Ben.
  •  It’s hard to say good bye to friends who have been with you for years, but, by the same token, when it becomes more aggravation and headache than enjoyment…it’s just time to put it in the rear view mirror and move on.
  • I really thought after the Goldeyes went up 1-0 in the series, that they were set up perfectly with McGovern and O’Brien.  Both got hammered and now the Fish are down 2 – 1 in the best of five Championship Series.  You made the playoffs on the last day of the season, you came back from down 2-1 to St Paul…we know you’ve got it in you…Go Get ‘Em Boys!!
  • win
