Tips To Quench That Olympic Fever- There’s Still Time!

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Don’t ask why, but I randomly searched to see if there were still tickets for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics coming up in February.

A White Christmas

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

As a Canadian, I am always so proud and inspired when I hear or read about people actually enjoying the tortuous winter conditions the country has to offer.

Where To Be “In” In Toronto

Tuesday, July 7, 2009
