One of the things that I love doing as a deacon is marry young people. Rule number 1 in the Wedding Presides handbook is never lose control of the “vows” – if you do then all ”heck” can break out.

Kids today wear helmets for almost all their activities. Well back in the day (as they say) we too had to be prepared. If you think the bike helmet is a new idea then think again! I guess girls were too smart to actually need a Super Helmet 7.
Some days the best thing about my job is that the chair spins. My life no longer needs an extreme makeover. Now it just needs a complete do over. A friend of mine has a nose ring. She keeps the volume pretty low, though, and sets it to “vibrate” at the movies. I’m not too handy […]
Please excuse me if I delve into a personal reflection on the occasion of the Grey Cup win of the Toronto Argonauts. For visitors from different parts of the globe, the Grey Cup is the Canadian equivalent of the NFL Super Bowl played for less money perhaps but no less honour. While I may be […]
A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her small daughter was very sick with a fever. She left work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication. She got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys in the car. She didn’t know what to […]

Six year old Annie returns home from school and says she had her first family planning lesson at school. Her mother, very interested, asks; “How did it go?” “I died of shame!” she answers. “Sam from over the road, says that the stork brings babies. Sally next door said you can buy babies at the […]
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! A solid tradition if there ever was one. In Canada this weekend marks the real end of summer. The first part of fall is often called ‘Indian Summer’ (if you can still use that term?) and it is through the sharing of the thanksgiving turkey that we come together to remember the […]
Today I started a brand new adventure- teaching in a community college. I will let you know from time to time how this journey is going and perhaps some new ideas we find along the way. It is billed as a Sales and Marketing course, but in reality, it is a class on life since […]
I had the pleasure of attending my mother-in-law’s birthday bash yesterday. As the old saying goes, she is “one in a million”. In fact, even though she was one of 12 children, I believe God broke the mold when he sent Pearl to be in this world. One of the things I noticed is that […]
