The name "Spam" is derived from Shoulder Pork Ham. 2007 was a big year for Spam as t...

I have been very fortunate to have been able to volunteer my time at a couple of different venues in the last week. It's Christmas season, and I was thankful to have the opportunity to ease my mind away from business and the more commercial aspects that this time of the year usually foists upon u...

Some years it just seems easy to get into the Christmas spirit. Other years require a bit of a kickstart. One of the methods that I employ to ease me into the Yule-tide frenzy is to make my annual pilgrimage to the Eaton Centre, right in the heart of the Canadian retail beast. This never fails to...

Black Friday is over.Whether you like it or not, the Christmas season is now underway. I feel that it's a bit early, but it's not something that I can fight anyway, so I might as well just join the crowd.

It's that time of the year again when most of us are reluctantly starting to think about Christmas, or more accurately, Christmas shopping. I'm sure that everybody has people who are difficult to shop for on their Christmas list. There are also people who we feel that we are obliged to buy presen...

It's almost the middle of November and these silly geese have decided not to go south this year. I have noticed that more and more geese decide to stick around for the winter each passing year. This may come as a relief to many people south of the border who feel that Canada Geese are a huge nuis...

I had the pleasure of eating at Captain George's Fish and Chips in Trenton the other day. It just opened its doors a month or so ago, so I was anxious to go in and see what it was like for myself. I knew there was a Captain George's Fish and Chips in Brighton, and I had assumed that it was the on...
