Brrrr… Have you been hearing from Climate Change skeptics asking where the global warming went? Even America’s idiot President suggested he “Sure did miss it!” I remember back in the 70’s growing up as a teen and people were saying we were going to see some interesting times ahead. And […]

Ok, month number one of the new year; 2019. What can we expect? Well on the world stage, more unrest in the Middle East, as Trump continues to say, out loud, whatever comes into his head. That will breed further insecurities on the market, and pension funds will lose money, […]

Question. Where did 2018 go? Is it just me or is time speeding up? Eternal question, I suppose. I remember when a day seemed to last forever, especially if you didn’t like what you were doing. Remember sitting in high-school staring at the clock, convinced it was going backwards? Now […]

I just flew in from Shanghai and is my brain tired. For any of my friends, that I’ve subjected to my frantic rambling descriptions, I apologize. It’s just that, I’m in awe of what is going on there and feel like I need to tell everyone! ‘Cause, I really didn’t […]

Here comes September and with it students from around the world. That means there will be folks with accents, colours and customs from other countries walking the streets and as a village, this is our big chance to celebrate the diversity this planet has to offer. But, for some, it […]

A few weeks ago, I attended a celebration of life. A large gathering of Peterborough’s music alumni who came to say goodbye to Buzz Thompson. Buzz was an icon in the community and one of those guys who lived the life he wanted, as a musician. Not an easy life, […]

Hot enough for you? Hello July, here to remind us it’s not really the heat, but the humidity. Stifling, I’ve hear old people call it. So as people run from air conditioned cars to air conditioned offices to air conditioned houses, others aren’t so fortunate and take to hanging out […]

Ah June, in like a lion. That’s the last time I’ll complain about a chilly spring. Whoosh, it’s already hurricane season down south and I’m a bit anxious as to what kind of weather we’re going to see this summer. Windy and wet I bet. Speaking of windy, I’ve been […]

Lots to talk about this month. I even made a list because sometimes I don’t remember to comment on things until I’m reading the hard copy. “Old timers” I guess. Speaking of “old timers” I’d like to address all those thinking of supporting Doug Ford in the provincial election. Bad […]
