Gift Ideas For The Traveller In Your Family

Gift card close-upAt this time of year I start to dread having to buy gifts for family and friends. It’s not that I’m tight with my money or anything; it’s just that I never know what to give people. For instance, I’ve been married 35-years and buying something new and different for my wife is almost impossible.

Hockey history and the trials of being a hockey parent

I’m not a hockey fanatic, my kids were into rugby, but I do like to watch a game or two when I get the chance. So, I was surprised to see the Victoria Grizzlies, who are supported by many companies including Accent Inns by the way, have eleven games scheduled in November. For some reason I didn’t think they played quite so much and this got me thinking about the hockey parents behind these successful 17 to 20 year-old Grizzlies, who for years must have dedicated much of their spare time to the sport and their prodigies. This in turn made me think about all hockey moms and dads (and I suppose grandpas and grandmas too) and the sheer insane commitment they have to their children’s sport.
