We've finished off the kid's Halloween candy by now. Just a few stale Tootsie rolls, with the wrappers fused to the stale roll- and the Christmas fruitcake is not even fit for the dog at this point. Time to dig into the Easter candy. If you get sick of the usual egg type candy and funny tasting chocolate, shaped like ducks and bunnies, maybe something new?

If you’re looking for some great entertainment in the form of playoff hockey, I highly recommend catching a game in the Golden Horseshoe Junior B final between the St. Catharines Falcons and Caledonia Corvairs. All three games so far have been decided by one goal, the Falcons dropping game one in overtime in Caledonia, the Corvairs coming from behind with three unanswered third period goals on Friday night in St. Catharines, and the Falcons winning a dramatic double overtime g...

Monday CAA Niagara kicked off their 12th Annual Worst Roads campaign. This runs until April 17. You now have the opportunity to vote for the worst roads in Niagara, so have your say! Pothole season coincides with the survey, and with the temperatures we experienced this past Winter, the roads are sure to buckle and split. You may, in fact, drop into one of the larger cracks, and your car and yourself will never be seen again.

There was a recent study that asked the question, “What is the best job in the world?” There were various answers that focused on money and for others it was how much free time could be gained from said job.

Had the opportunity to meet and chat with a number of sports celebrities this past Saturday at the Niagara Falls Sports and Hobby Expo at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, among them ,former NHL defenceman Larry Hillman. Being both originally from Northern Ontario, we had a nice long talk about places and people we both knew well, and eventually, the conversation turned to hockey. And that is where I learned about “The Hillman Hex”. Now I had met Mr.... Click here
There was quite a buzz in the air in St. Catharines on Sunday. After 3 years of media hype, which at times has reached ridiculous proportions, the hockey world's next possible phenom, Connor McDavid, was in town to play what would be his last regular season OHL game with his Erie Otters at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines. But a funny thing happened. Rumnours began to spread around the rink prior to the game that McDavid was not going to dress, or at best, would be used sparingly ... Click here
So long story short, we’re moving later this spring to a new residence, always a fun task. One of the cool things about moving though is going through a box of stuff that you’ve just stashed somewhere, just to see if there is anything you can get rid of to make the move just a little lighter. So it was this week, as I happened across a box of old Hockey News from the 1970’s, some old sports magazines, programs, media guides for various teams and such. Tucked away... Click here

This Friday is the start of Spring and there are so many rituals, spring cleaning being one of them. Another, there will be new drivers on the road and many road tests will be conducted because who wants to test during the bitter winter months.
Recently some driving instructors got together to trade war stories, so to speak. Here are some of the actual events that occurred during road tests.
An instructor made this one guy parallel park in a... Click here

Well Happy St.Patrick’s Day to all you budding Irish men and women. Yes, this is the day when we share a little blarney and wear a lot of green. There’s a very good chance that today in the U.S.A and Canada you’ll see many wearing green because that’s the tradition. However, did you know that over in the Emerald Isle hardly anyone wears green today because in most parts of the Country it’s considered bad luck. Folklore has it that ... Click here
