Just Norm

My province has been set free! Well… sort of free. The Health regulations that have been put in place to protect us from ourselves, are being ever so slightly relaxed in my region. Canada is still struggling in some regions and they have not been set free like me yet, but across the country a […]

The Neighbour

When Donald Trump was running for President of the United States, I wrote about having front row seats to watch the Gong Show that was happening south of my border. The guy was a loose cannon, with little or no ability to do anything more than tell people what he thinks. The gullible in the […]

Life is Crazy

Isn’t it all crazy? What you ask? Life… Life is crazy… the world is crazy… everything is crazy!! I know it’s always been this way but I can usually find something to hang onto that isn’t crazy. But crazy is everywhere! It is invading every layer of my life! Yes, I know I’m ranting on […]

Go Jets Go

My father loved sports, he passed that love down to his sons, one of which is yours truly. My mother on the other hand had no use for sports and she too passed that down. Since my father made a living writing about sports, it doesn’t take a relationship psychologist to know that their union […]

12 Days Of Mayhem

December 2013   Working in retail at Christmas sucks. That is the mantra that retail employees live by at this time of year. These are good hard working people that don’t deserve the abuse that is heaped onto them at this time of year. Shoppers crowd the stores to the point there is no room […]
