Mike Duffy returns to "work" 03/05/2016 06:59

Senator Mike Duffy has returned to Parliament Hill, less than two weeks after he was acquitted of all 31 charges in his trial for fraud, bribery and breach of trust. Whether we agree with the judge’s decision or not, and as shocking as it may have been to many Canadians, we have to live with the decision. What I find the most galling of all though, is the possibility that Duffy may or may not seek reimbursement for an estimated $250,000 of wages he missed during his two and ha...

Well- here we go. Expect a Looong wait for repairs to be made to the Forks Road Bridge, over the Recreational Canal, in Dain City. The bridge was closed for 'Emergency repairs' Friday afternoon.

A new team to cheer for 28/04/2016 09:53

I’m back to square one in the Stanley Cup playoffs, that is, with no Canadian team or teams taking part, who to cheer for? A Giant FM listener e-mailed last week pointing out that the Florida Panthers had the most Canadian on the roster of any of the playoff teams, so they suddenly had my allegiance. But sadly, my new team was eliminated in six games by the New York Islanders, so what to do? I’ve got it, although this may be the result of undiagnosed concussion...

The Brady Hunch 26/04/2016 09:27

Well it looks as though New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have to miss the first four games of the 2016 NFL season, including a week 4 matchup at home against the Buffalo Bills. A U.S. federal appeals court has reinstated Brady’s four game suspension for his involvement in the ‘DeflateGate’ scandal. He seems to be out of options at this point, short of taking his case to the Supreme Court. Hey, it’s Brady, it’s the Pat...

PRINCE....THE SHOW i NEVER SAW 25/04/2016 11:31

The other night I was watching Saturday Night Live and it was a show dedicated to Prince so as you can imagine there was a lot of great music. On Sunday night Bruce Springsteen opened up his show in New York with a rendition of “Purple Rain” he belted out a soulful version while the stage was bathed in purple.

Over the last few days there have been a number of musicians who have been paying their respects to the diminutive one and it seems that ev...

Big Brother still watches.. 24/04/2016 10:01

Noticed a story on CBC about GEORGE ORWELL, who died in 1950. Much is still relevant today. George's most famous line, "Big Brother is Watching You" came from his most famous book, 1984. Orwell asks us to be vigilant, be on guard for Freedom, and to keep the faith: Decency, Tolerance and Humanity. Be aware of the terms 'Doublethink, Thoughtcrime and Newspeak'.

1984 sounded many warnings about privacy and state surveillance. Big Brother is Watching YOU.

Oooopsie!

Fans saw red instead of purple as some corporations tried to pay tribute to Prince.

General Mills were accused of "cashing in" on Prince's death on Twitter.

Fans were furious...the tweet backfired and was taken down.

The world has lost another musical icon. Prince (full name Prince Rogers Nelson) was found dead yesterday at the age of 57.
