Holiday or Vacation

I have come to the conclusion that a month on the beach in the Dominican Republic is not enough, especially when you return to sub-zero temperatures and more snow than when you left. It’s been a hard week. Honey and I returned home at 3 am on Tuesday and were both back to work on […]

We as Canadians have become used to a certain way of life. The way we shop, the way we work, how we move around and the amenities that are common in our country are something that we have become accustom to. So, when we travel, we are frequently taken aback by the lack of these […]

                The following is a parody. I sung it in my head and since I don’t actually know the words to the song, I am basically just repeating the same melody over and over again. If you are a rabid ‘Who’ fan I sincerely apologize but I am invoking the ‘Weird Al’ parody protocol and […]

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 […]

Road rage is something I completely understand. The fury you feel when some ass cuts you off in an unsafe manner. The frustration at being stuck behind a vehicle driven by a person that likes to drive 10kph below the speed limit when the limit is posted at 50kph! Anger at the vehicle that can’t […]
