Time to start thinking about BACK TO SCHOOL lunch for the kids. The original lunch box came out in 1935, and featured a cartoon character named Mickey Mouse, and the metal container was sealed with a piece of wire that doubled as a handle. Before long, the lunchbox could mark you as either a cool kid or a dork, depending on the picture and art of the container. Into the 40's, Disney expanded to characters such as Pinocchio and Snow White. Donald Duck and Daisy were popular too.
As the Blue Jays continue their quest for top spot in the American League East, and that certainly looks very promising, the team has given season ticket holders the chance to buy coveted playoff tickets this week. Flex pack ticket holders will get next dibs early in September, while tickets to the general public won’t go on sale until September 23rd. Now if you are a season ticket holder, you no doubt have all of the information already, but if yo... Click here
If you get involved in a fantasy league, you know how time consuming it can be. There is a fantasy pool, however, that only takes a few minutes a week to enter, and gives you a chance to win a trip for two to the Grey Cup in Winnipeg this November (second prize is two trips to Winnipeg…haha, just kidding, love the place, used to work there). You can also win a $200 gift certificate from a well known clothing chain in Canada. It’s the CFL Fantasy Pool on the TSN we... Click here
I have to admit that I get a charge out of watching and hearing about the antics of the most popular Republican running for the American Presidential nomination. Donald Trump amuses me much like Rodney Dangerfield, or Jerry Stiller (Seinfeld and King of Queens) do. I find the lack of 'Political Correctness' to be funny in a strange kind of way.
I grew up in an era before political correctness took hold of our lives in such a big way, and I always find h... Click here
So last Friday, I got another tattoo that means a lot to me… But, this blog isn’t about that
This is about the artist who gave me that tattoo and all the amazing work she does with breast cancer survivors Jennette Conners not only creates amazing body art, she also helps breast cancer survivors with Medical Tattooing,... Click here
While I was on holiday, I managed to get myself down to "TIM HORTON'S FIELD" and check out a Ti-Cat game. This wasn't just any ordinary game, this was the Cat's versus their arch rival Toronto Argonauts. Both teams had just come off lengthy road trips. The Argos were technically still on the road, just a mere 80km away from the "Rogers Center"but they were in a very hostile stadium for this game.
Now, I've been going to CFL games for years and ... Click here
The end of Summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest times of the year- and always one of the most interesting, social and fun times too. Tomorrow evening, I'll be leading the parade, as the SOUTHERN CRUISERS ERIE SHORE Riding Club leaves the Giant FM parking lot at 6, to head to Clare's Bike Night in Niagara on the Lake. I always bring up the rear, so I don't get lost somewhere in the wilds of South Niagara and rural Thorold. It has happened, but the Riders came back for me, to ... Click here
Had the opportunity to go to Centennial Square in Niagara Falls yesterday, along with Matt the Intern and the Giant FM cruiser for "World Hepatitis Day". What is that, you may ask? Well, from 10 A.M. until 2 p.m., residents were able to get tons of inofrmation on Hepatitis, what it is, how it's acquired, treatments, etc....... The organizers of the event did a fantastic job in putting the day together, with a large number of display booths, food, refreshments, music and information. ... Click here
Today wraps up one of the most well run Festivals of the Summer in Niagara- the Pelham Summerfest. We sent Matt Sanderson to the event with the Giant FM Cruiser, and Matt posted some great pictures to the Giant FB and Twitter pages. He was even caught line dancing with both of his left feet. I salute the organizers for a great production. Good weather helps too!
We're not done yet.. Lots of Fun still to come, with the St Davids Lions Carnival from the 23rd to the 26... Click here
