I'm slowly plugging myself back in after an amazing trip to Pinery Provincial Park with three of the kids. I borrowed a Lincoln Aviator for the 500 km round trip and I'm glad we did because the four of us and all our gear takes up a lot of space.

It's cold out. How cold is it? It's too cold to bike, and that's a rarity for me. Since I'm skipping my lunchtime ride today, I thought I'd take the opportunity to write here. I've simply had no time as I've been swamped with TMDS and fatherhood responsibilities. And when

Despite my best efforts, my oldest never took to baseball. I knew I was in trouble during the pennant race of 2015 when he chose to watch a preseason Leafs game over a Jays game against the Yankees. He just doesn't love baseball the way I do. In his 15
My oldest daughter turned 13 today. She wanted to start the day before dawn with a short ride to the waterfront to watch the sun rise. We got up at 5:30 am and watched the sun come up. It was spectacular, and I took some great pics. Here's a
