‘Gone Red Road’

G'day there! Well, it would seem that Old Man Winter is back in town for the second time in only a few days. Blecch. I don't know about you, but my day started bright (dark?) and early at 6:30 AM, and... Continue Reading →

Film Friday: ‘Island Romance’

G'day there! It's a question nearly as old as time itself: What happens when a city girl far from the bright lights of Winnipeg is wooed by a dashing young farmer-fisherman from the Island's North Shore? That's what you'll find... Continue Reading →

Boo! I know I know, it's Monday and I don't post on Mondays. So what's the deal? Have I lost my mind? Well, not quite yet - but I'm getting there. No, it's Halloween of course, and as such I... Continue Reading →

The Artist

G'day there! One day some years ago now, when I was gainfully employed at the Artifactory (see A Date with History if you need the backstory), I had a bit of a startling encounter with history. Admittedly, such encounters are not... Continue Reading →
