It’s not the Millenium Falcon!

Some scary video all over social media of Harrison Ford landing his small plane on a “TAXIway” instead of an actual runway. Thankfully nothing happened, but, as you can clearly see in the video, this could have be a giant disaster. Article and video, in this case, from the Toronto Sun. http://www.torontosun.com/2017/02/22/video-shows-harrison-ford-mistakenly-flying-over-airliner...

National Flag Day

February 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

Today is National Flag Day, where we celebrate the Maple Leaf. Found an interesting article that kind of explains the process, but also pictures other submissions that could quite easily have become our Canadian flag. Personally I am quite partial to the Maple Leaf compared to the rest. https://www.canadiangeographic.ca/article/four-flags-almost-became-canadas-national-flag...

Friday the 13th

January 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

I won’t assume, but I’m sure you’ve heard of the word, “Triskaidekaphobia”, which is the fear of the number 13? I did not know, until today, that there is another word even more related to this day. That word is “Paraskevidekatriaphobia”. which apparently is the fear of the actual day of Friday the 13th. I’m...

Hip/Downie honoured by Frontenacs

January 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

Gord Downie is a huge hockey fan. The lyrics in certain Hip songs reflect that. And, of course, Gord Downie is currently in a fight for his live. Great concept by the hometown Kingston Frontenac hockey team to honour him, the band and, via an auction, support Gord’s foundation at the same time. Definitely a...
