    For those of you unfamiliar with the excellent blog In Search Of Isis, I suggest that you click on the link and check it out. The blog is written by ECD and his mission is to celebrate the beauty of women everywhere. Yesterday, I caught a glimpse of what he sees everyday. The first time […]

  • Summer’s Gone

    Well, that is pretty much it. The summer is gone. This time every year I listen to a song that kind of gets me depressed. The song is called “Summer” by the excellent group Buffalo Tom. “The summer’s gone. The summer’s gone. You wasted every day.” Those lyrics usually haunt me because I always seem […]

  • Writing Chair

    This chair looks like a cross between an office chair and a rocking chair. It has a nice large cloth seat and cloth backrest. It is great for writers like me. I can type away at my keyboard for as long as I want. When I need a break, I can lean back and the […]

  • Anime Godfathers

    I am not what you would call an anime fan. I have watched several anime movies over the past few years but none of them have really captured my imagination or attention. I usually end up shutting off the DVD player and saying to myself, “Well, that was okay.” For the most part, I have […]

  • Old and Falling Apart

    I am relatively young, as people like to point out to me. Although, when I turned 30 people joked that it was “all down hill from here.” Part of me thought that maybe they could be right. Perhaps, it is just a coincidence but getting older has meant that I have slowly started to slide […]

  • What Makes a Volunteer?

    I spent most of my weekend giving my time for a great yearly event. I didn’t have to think twice about signing up to volunteer for KidSpark. It was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyable. I wrote about it in detail yesterday. Today I want to focus on the volunteer aspect of the event. It […]

  • KidSpark

    I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer at KidSpark on the weekend. This is an amazing event that is put on every year by the Kitchener Public Library and an assortment of community sponsors. The event is totally free and takes over the huge and beautiful Victoria Park every August. I have taken kids to […]

  • Blog Catalog

    Networking seems to be what the Internet is all about these days. Whether it is sites like Facebook or MySpace, it seems that people want to connect with other people online. I have let it be known on this blog that I don’t much care for these two particular websites. I enjoy the community that […]
