Getting Busy with the Local Music Scene! 24/05/2015 10:36

Lots of Fun! Last week found yours truly working with one of Canada's Legends, Rick Rose, who grew up in Niagara Falls, and spent time in New York and Nashville- as well as Toronto. Rick is the writer of the theme from RUDE AWAKENING, starring Cheech Marin and Eric Roberts, and sung by Bill Medley. Rick has spent years in the publishing business, as a staff writer for Sony, in Nashville, writing songs for the best. Rick has co-written music with the brother of President Clinton- Roger ...

'Super Coach" has arrived! 21/05/2015 09:45

So the Leafs have shocked the hockey world by signing free agent coach Mike Babcock to a massive, 8 year, $50 million dollar deal, the richest contract for a coach in the history of the NHL. Babcock had been the most talked-about, most heavily pursued coach quite possibly of all-time in pro hockey. Much of the hoopla was created by a media frenzy surrounding the former Red Wings coach, and based on the reaction of most of Leaf Nation, the fans were thrilled with the signing as well. But...

Where y'at? 19/05/2015 09:38

I’m heading to the Big Easy, New Orleans, later this week

We already have the cemetery walk planned, the bayou tour, Beignets and crawfish…not necessarily together and …

Music, music, music!

So, fellow travellers, any other suggestions?

R.I.P. B.B. King 15/05/2015 09:45

Sad to hear about the passing of B.B. King this week. The 89 year old Blues legend had been having serious health issues and died on Thursday night at his home in Las Vegas. I don’t know if there was ever another music artist who influenced so many people with his musicianship. Elvis, for sure, was the model for singers and on stage performances for generations, but when it came to sheer guitar playing , soul and blues, no one compared to B.B.

Happy Mother's Day! 10/05/2015 09:56

So today's the day you serve Mother 'Breakfast in Bed'? Or maybe pile the kids into the family van, and head off to see Grannie? If you are just thinking about the day now- you still have time to get a card and a boquet of flowers and stay out of trouble. My Mother is long gone, but her memory is strong, especially when I'm plotting something of which she wouldn't approve, which in my case, is just about everything I do.

My mother gave me my peanut butter sandwi...

The changing face of yard sales 06/05/2015 10:00

So my wife and I decided a few weeks back we we’re going to have a yard sale, always a good way to dispose of items you don’t need anymore, or that are cluttering up the place,and maybe make a few bucks at the same time. So we did what most people do these days, we placed a free ad on Kijiji advertising the sale. We waited until Thursday night, figuring it would still be near the top of the listings for anyone checking them out by the time the “event&rd...

I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER FOR YOU 04/05/2015 11:33

Last week Niagara Falls City Council did something which caused, as it turns out, a major uproar. What could possibly have been done to cause one person to threaten a call to the “Ontario Human rights Tribunal”……there was a prayer said before session.

I understand there are some people who are Atheists and don’t believe in God but, for the life of me, I don’t see why listening to a 30 second or less ...

Guitar World's Greatest Classic Rock Songs 03/05/2015 11:16

It might be time soon for a Giant FM Top 300 Countdown? It's always fun to try to figure out in advance where the count will take us. No one is ever satisfied with the top song. It's almost fistfight material in watering hole discussions. So to keep me blameless, and to whet your whistle, I offer up the Top 10 from Guitar World Magazine. You can duke it out with their editors, and you and I can argue when it's time for the 'Porter List'.

I'll Take It! 01/05/2015 09:45

So I'm not really one to be defined by my age

I really don't think it matters with a few exceptions: voting,driving,when you collect certain Government benefits...that kind of thing

Admittingly though, this made me a little nervous.

My computer telling my age?? This could get ugly!

Nobody Night 29/04/2015 12:17

The Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox are playing a game at beautiful Camden Yards Wednesday. Big whoop usually, right? What makes this game so unique is the fact that there will be no fans in the stadium. MLB decided, in the wake of the unfortunate events in the city of Baltimore earlier this week, that fans would not be allowed in, for safety reasons. And the Orioles home series against Tampa scheduled for this weekend has been moved to St. Petersburg, Florida. It's believed to...
