Time To Take The 'Twit' Out Of 'Twitter'

I am not one of those people that reads the paper everyday, trolls internet news websites and has CNN turned on at all times. I know people like this, but I am not one of them. I watch an hour of news during the week, the half hour Canadian National broadcast followed by the half […]

The Doppelganger Effect

They are young, smart and university educated. They are career-title driven. They love to travel. They love their phones. They love to take selfies with their phones, travelling and looking ‘glam’. They’ve found another that shares the same interest of travel, selfies and looking ‘glam’. They get serious with that person and buy a house […]

DN-eh?

Driving home one day down the Trans-Canada Highway, I got to thinking about ancestry. Where I came from, and where they came from, and I realized that I didn’t really have much knowledge of my family history. Sure, I have memory of a couple of family anecdotes about some distant cousin that was someone famous […]

What do you think? Head held high or in hand-cuffs? How’s he going out?   I had a friend say to me (keep in mind this is two Canadians talking), “None of this would be happening if it wasn’t for the Russia Investigation.” Shhhhh!!! Don’t say anything Uncle Jeremiah, let me set it up.   […]

News From The Cracks

Last week I read these news headlines… ‘Trump says Canadians are smuggling shoes’ ‘Britain and Europe facing beer shortage during world cup’ ‘Canada passes final reading of cannabis law‘   I know there are more important headlines that have a more of a significant impact on mankind, but if you’re looking for those kind of […]
