My weekend with Eddie and Stephen.

You have to check out The Theory of Everything.  Eddie Redmayne deserves every award he is picking up this awards season, including  last night’s SAG acting award for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking.   I finally caught the movie over the weekend. What can I say?   It is amazing-  loving, funny and deeply inspiring.  There are

My Love Letter to Targét Eh….

You would think the sky was falling. My Target store in Cambridge was busy on Saturday.  Really Busy. That’s something I haven’t seen in a good year or so, and I shop there weekly. There were empty racks in the clothing department. Shoppers were on the hunt for bargains ( a little too soon..) and

The Giving Tree

This came across Twitter (#chasethechill)  this week… and it made me wonder why this hasn’t caught on here in Waterloo Region yet.  We can do this! A Regina woman has started to hang scarves and mittens from tree branches free for all to grab.   Check out the story here. It’s so simple.  A kind act to keep

Putting chocolate up your nose…..

Forget those Valentine’s Day heart-shaped boxes of chocolates.  This is now the ever so trendy way to enjoy that sugar hit. You snort it.  Really. Thank you Nick Eagland for sharing this…..and trying this! I did stay up a little too late last night taking in the Golden Globes. As much as I try to resist

Je Suis Charlie:Digital photos from two Canadians vacationing in Paris.

This past week my niece, Blaire and her boyfriend Steve were vacationing in Paris, France when they became caught up in the aftermath of the terrorist attack at the offices of Charlie Hebdo. Blaire was in contact with me, explaining what she witnessed and sent photos (below) offering a description of each. With Blaire’s permission,

Looking back… and saying Yes Please!

Hard to believe.. just days from now.. that the calendar actually flips forward to 2015. December has been a complete blur.   Hope your Christmas was merry and bright.  A huge thanks to the many workplaces (and to so many others) that stepped up and helped out our 570News Secret Santa campaign this year.  So many toys and

The Book of Mormon: Testing Your Faith in Humour

When I went to see Rock of Ages at Kitchener’s Centre in the Square, I wondered if anyone would be offended that there were some exceptionally risqué scenes (“borderline nudity” is probably a fair description). No one was. No one went leaping out of their seats in protest over strippers, blunt sexual references, etc. This

The Game.

This week, 570 News is putting the spotlight on sex trafficking right here in Waterloo Region. Pimps refer to it as “the game”. Women.. really, girls, as young as 15….. are being lured …and then trapped.  Some are even being found on local campuses. Our location, just off the 401, makes it very easy for

Keep an eye out for local band

The last time I felt this strongly about a local rock band was in 1989, when I happened to catch The Rhinos at a Kitchener club. (I knew within minutes of hearing them perform, that they were something special.  I noticed one member in particular – a 19-year-old named Danny Michel. Well, we all know

‘Tis the Season…

Fa la la la la la la la…. Here’s what I love about this season: You can just smell Christmas around the corner and feel this extra “good cheer” in the air…even see it too. This is what makes me happy…. even with the sun disappearing before 6pm now. The darker night really makes displays
