Oh Robbie, Not Again!

January 23, 2014 in Humor, Politics by KIDDING, RIGHT?

Oh Robbie, Robbie, Robbie, crack-smoking mayor of the city my children & I were born in!  How many times shall I forgive thee?  Seventy times seven?  Really??????????  I initially dismissed that unreadably leftist Toronto Star when they first broke the news about your crack video.  I knew they always had it in for you because of your populist, down-to-earth, low-taxing ways.  The more the Ford-haters attacked you the more I gave you the benefit of the doubt.  Everyone’s a sinner and Full Article [...]

Looking in the refrigerator I saw that we were out of the kind of cheese needed to make the new recipe. Grabbing my keys and wallet, I went out to the van and drove to the store.

Ladies fashion tips for fashion nerds

September 17, 2013 in Fashion, Humor, Personal Growth by family

I asked my Facebook friends for topics they’d like me to write about. Cherie, bless her heart, suggested I write about fashion trends for women in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. Can I be frank? I know as much about fashion as I do about how to change the transmission oil in my car. In other words; zip, zilch, nada, nothing. However, I’ve learned a few things over the years that I can share with you, and I hope you find them useful. This is how I dressed in my pre-awakening days. After I Full Article [...]
