Navarro
What to Do with Dioner Navarro?

Dioner Navarro has publicly stated his desire to be traded. Should the Blue Jays grant him his wish, or hang onto him?

Uncharted territory with LRT construction

First off, allow me to tell you that I am a huge supporter of the Region’s Light Rapid Transit project. I believe the Region is doing the right thing – being proactive – thinking not merely about the immediate need for a combination of light rail and rapid bus, but taking a long-term view. Not

Some TEACHable moments….from the pages of a magazine.

Anyone who knows me.. knows I can’t walk by a magazine stand.  I have baskets and piles of them stacked around our home.  I will always pick up current affairs magazines ( love Maclean’s.. and Toronto Life) Have to grab some Brit decor and gardening publications..and some fun fashion ones too. I read many a

Mr Grey and Mr Darcy.

Full disclosure: I have read all three 50 Shades of Grey books… and I just went to see the movie yesterday.  I know. I feel a little dirty about it all. The movie is not going to win an Oscar.  By the time I got into reading the 2nd or 3rd book I was quickly swiping

An American Sniper… and something new from Dr Seuss.

Here’s the deal.  I had no interest in seeing the Oscar-nominated American Sniper.  The trailer left me cringing. Stranded at an airport last week, I bought the book and finished it quickly.  I liked Chris Kyle right away. It wasn’t just about the killing.  He was open and raw and passionate about his life.. his work and his

Surf and Snow.

Last week was hot.  Nice, sunny, and hot.  High 80′s in Jamaica.   Little breezy on the ship.  We came back down to earth and the frigid reality early Sunday morning in Detroit. After a few flight delays, we finally hit the 401 for a few scary and very snowy hours. So many cars in the ditches.  Lucky
