I'm running for Terry on September 14. That's less than two weeks away, and thus far I've raised an underwhelming $44. I serve up lots of content and never ask for a dime, so here's what I'm hoping you'll do so I can save face. My target is $500. I've
I just wrote about the Ford Focus I'm test driving for ten days. That meant meeting Zoe from the Social Media Group who contacted me in the first place and a few very nice people from Ford. Obviously, Ford expects me to write about this test drive, but they never
When I got home tonight I had a package waiting for me from Martha McClew, Ontario Provincial Director of The Terry Fox Foundation. In addition to a nice letter thanking me for my contribution last year, there was a DVD with a great Terry Fox documentary and other inspiring stories.
I haven't shared stories about the kids lately, and it's not because there aren't any. It's because there are too many. They're both at these ages where just about everything they do is priceless and precious and too cute for words. It's truly cuteness overload. Tonight when I got home

It's been about four years since I complained about this, and in the blogging world four years is an eternity. My complaint has to do with this holiday weekend. Once again we're taking Monday off in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. Queen Vicky's full title was By the Grace of
The Terry Fox Run is fast approaching. I've always regarded Terry Fox as the greatest Canadian. His Marathon of Hope affected me deeply in 1980 and he continues to inspire me to this day. I'm not running this year (I'm planning to run in 2007), but a good friend is.

Twenty-five years ago today, Terry Fox was forced to abandon his Marathon of Hope for cancer research just outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Terry Fox was a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, who was diagnosed with cancer in his right leg in 1977 at the age of 18. Two years later
Tonight, the CBC will unveil the results of their Greatest Canadian poll. I know the whole concept is silly, but I've been watching with great interest. I even tuned in last night to watch the advocates battle on behalf of their top ten nominees. I'd like to see Terry Fox
