Going to the dogs!

What is it with people these days? There was an article in the Toronto Star yesterday about a boy and his dog.  Apparently the two dogs had issues and now the owners of the truly offending dog are upset and expect the boy to pay their vet bill. These are animals that have very natural behaviours. …

We’re smarter than that!

Let me start off by saying that this is an opinion not supported by any specific facts.  Just my observations. When I was growing up, we expected that we would work for a company and retire with a pension.  This was a time when our economy was heavily manufacturing dependent.  The city I grew up …

Staying in love

Falling in love is easy but staying in love, now that’s a lot of hard work. I remember the first date with my wife.  December 9, 1988.  White pants, white and golden brown sweater, light brown hair and big brown eyes.  I loved watching her move about the room and couldn’t wait to be alone …

Don’t Tell Me How To Grieve!

I was at the funeral home the other day and saw this on the wall.  I think it speaks volumes! CREDO I believe grief is a process that involves a lot of time, energy and determination.  I won’t “get over it” in a hurry, so don’t rush me! I believe grief is intensely personal.  This …

I’m A Chauvinist!

I had a friend review one of my web pages for me because she is a specialist in that field.  She made the comment that some of the wording was a little chauvinistic.  I made a reference to “Working for the man”.  That made me think. I believe that women have more value to the …
