    Anybody remember Bobby Gimby?

    I remember 48 years ago my little town opened its first and only centennial swimming pool to his song. Ten years later a pretty young lady from a far away city was hired on to lifeguard that pool. Within the year she became my Dear Wife.

    Canadian, Eh?

    When I lived overseas, I remember people asking me on a daily basis, 'where are you from?'. I always proudly answered 'Canada" to which they would ask 'So you live in an igloo and wear parkas?' SERIOUSLY??? I am always astonished at how little people from other countries know...

    Our nation's capital,

    mere hours away, was the scene of violence today. I was working in Michigan on 9/11, and all I could think of was getting back home to where things like this didn't happen. Sadly, as a country envied by a lot of the world, we have joined the ranks where this occurs. Fear is...

    October 15 is election time in Canada.

    Only half Canadian on my mother's side.

    Thanks to Mom's heritage I'd rather have real maple syrup than Mrs. Butterworth. Grandma also taught me that vinegar is really good on fries, especially if you're on a low sodium diet. Once in a while when Mom and Grandma have a conversation their old accents break through. It...
