Gift ideas – The Quirky, the Funny and the Downright Weird

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

It’s that time of year again when we have to try and figure out what we’re going top buy our loved ones for the holiday season. The pressure is on and I’m already feeling stressed, I tend to fall back on the old standards when it comes to gifts; sweaters, purses, books, perfume, you know, the same old same old. This year however I thought I’d go online and see if I could come up with something a little different. An hour or two on the Internet was all I needed to come up with everything from quirky but really cool, to silly goofy presents and from very strange to completely weird. (more…)

Winter Tires and Those New Signs

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Winter-TiresI just got my winter tires put back on my car. I never used to have them, but when I bought my new car the dealer gave me a set on rims, so I’ve become a convert. I love the increased traction in heavy rain, icy conditions and snow, especially as I have family living in Whistler now. (more…)

Gift Ideas For The Traveller In Your Family

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

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. I know she likes sweaters, purses, jewelry, and a bunch of other stuff but I’ve already bought everything she likes at least once, if not a half-dozen times, over the years. So, this year I’ve been trawling the Internet for inspiration and one such search centered on what to buy my eldest son who loves to travel. (more…)

Hockey history and the trials of being a hockey parent

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

victoria grizzliesI was checking out the Victoria Grizzlies schedule the other day to see when I could catch a game. 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. (more…)

Arthritis Active

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

IrunYouRun4 - AdrienneGetting up and getting out can be a pain, especially when you are actually IN pain.

I was diagnosed with Arthritis (JIA) at age four, which means I have spent my whole live learning how to live a full, happy and active life in harmony with a chronic illness. Some days are better than others but one thing I have learned is the most important part of managing my disease is staying active. “Motion is lotion” as they say! (more…)
