The uniqueness of Christmas 22/12/2014 07:54

There’s a long list of things we only see over the holiday season. Aside from the obvious, like lights, trees, Santa, elves and reindeer, certain things are synonamous with Christmastime. For instance.........eggnog. If you’re a fan of the milky beverage, how many times have you had to explain to non-eggnog drinkers the attraction to it? Granted, there are many people who perhaps used to enjoy eggnog with a fair bit of mix in it, but one night of one too many of the ...

HELP!?? Ideas please!! 22/12/2014 06:07

Help!! Only two more days to go with this friggin Elf on the Shelf and I am seriously out of clever ideas on what to do with this little bugger. I have done everything from making snow angels with him to having him toilet paper the tree. This morning this is what I thought about doing, and then thought...hmmm, this won't win me mother of th...

Rio Lane 18/12/2014 08:29

It seems every community has lights and decorations displays that are in the “must see” category at Christmastime.If taking a walk or a drive to check out Christmas lights ,inflatables and such is something you enjoy, might I suggest Rio Lane in St. Catharines? If you’ve been there before, you know what I’m talking about, but if you have never been, here’s a brief idea of what to expect. Christmas magic, plain and simple. And if there is snow on t...

The Who (Farewell Tour) Dec, 17 1982 - Toronto 17/12/2014 18:36

On this date Dec. 17 in 1982 The Who played Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto as part of their "first" Farewell Tour. It was an absolutely incredible show but the best was their performance of Eminence Front that night, in what I think is possilby the best version of the song ever recorded. Here's a link to and HD video of that performcance on YouTube CLICK HER...

It’s around this time of year that you dig out the tree, the decorations, the stockings, the money you have been saving all year…what? No money? Yeah, me either

But the one thing that lets everyone know what time of year it is….that first Christmas carol

They seem to come earlier every year; I refuse to listen until at ...

How not to propose to your girlfriend... 16/12/2014 12:19

Some grand gestures need better planning and this is one of them.

A Dutchman’s elaborate proposal to his girlfriend ended with a giant hole in her neighbours roof.

The plan was to descend to his girlfriend’s bedroom window using a crane, sing her a song, and ask her to marry him.

The forgotten part of the plan: To secure the crane. C...

The gradual, unfortunate demise of the Christmas card............. 16/12/2014 08:40

One of the nicest things that happens over the holiday season , to my wife and I at least, is going to the mailbox and seeing a Christmas card. It could be from a friend or relative you haven’t seen or talked to in awhile, or from someone who is part of your everyday life. But I’ll tell you, I would not want to be a Christmas card maker these days. Maybe it’s just us, but there has been a definite trend over the past 10 years or so as far as the amount of c...

Yeah, THAT just happened... 15/12/2014 11:01

My job in radio (and film before that) has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people

It’s taken me to places I never thought I would go

And sometimes, there are moments that have left me speechless…yes…me….speechless

But this past weekend, I had a moment that was 37 years in the making...

Ho Ho Ho- Hardee Harr Harr! 14/12/2014 07:48

All right.. Only a week and a half to go. I'll start shopping soon. Maybe.

A little girl climbed onto Santa's lap, and the Jolly Gent asked her, "So- what do you want for Christmas?" The horrified little girl blurted- "Didn't you get my email?"

What do you call a kid who doesn't believe in Christmas? -A rebel without a Claus!

Why is Christmas like your job? -You do all the work, and the fat guy with the suit g...

Peanut butter poutine 11/12/2014 09:01

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever tried on poutine, that is, if you like the delicacy of French-Canadian origin? Usually, I think most of us just go with the traditional cheese curds and gravy, but there is a place in Niagara that let’s you experiment to your little heart’s delight. Iggy’s Pub and Grub is located on Highway 20 in Fonthill, and they bring you ‘Chuck’s Picks” every Sunday morning at 8:40 ...

That's it! Christmas is cancelled! 09/12/2014 09:48

The holiday season is here

A time where all the children of the world write their letters to Santa in hopes of that new bike or (as has been my case for the last 40 years) a pony

Then Christmas morning comes

When the thrill turns deadly 09/12/2014 07:03

My husband has a relative who suffered serious injury from base jumping years ago...the thrill of the ride put in in a wheelchair for life. Base jumping is as popular as ever, even more so with the invention of the "GO Pro" cameras. But it is an incredibly dangerous thing to do and if you've ever thought about BASE jumping, this terrifying video might make you reconsider. Jumpe...

Dinner with Aunt Myrtle and Uncle Tom 06/12/2014 08:22

A few words about the duties and obligations of the Season: It's the time for visiting all the relatives, in-laws, friends and friends of friends for a little Christmas cheer and possibly a too long Christmas Dinner!

I was looking at a survey that claimed that 96% of us would rather spend Christmas with our pets than our in-laws. I don't know much about your family dynamics, but I can remember sitting for hours and hours next to old Uncle Tom at ...
