The end of Summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest times of the year- and always one of the most interesting, social and fun times too. Tomorrow evening, I'll be leading the parade, as the SOUTHERN CRUISERS ERIE SHORE Riding Club leaves the Giant FM parking lot at 6, to head to Clare's Bike Night in Niagara on the Lake. I always bring up the rear, so I don't get lost somewhere in the wilds of South Niagara and rural Thorold. It has happened, but the Riders came back for me, to ... Click here
Had the opportunity to go to Centennial Square in Niagara Falls yesterday, along with Matt the Intern and the Giant FM cruiser for "World Hepatitis Day". What is that, you may ask? Well, from 10 A.M. until 2 p.m., residents were able to get tons of inofrmation on Hepatitis, what it is, how it's acquired, treatments, etc....... The organizers of the event did a fantastic job in putting the day together, with a large number of display booths, food, refreshments, music and information. ... Click here
Today wraps up one of the most well run Festivals of the Summer in Niagara- the Pelham Summerfest. We sent Matt Sanderson to the event with the Giant FM Cruiser, and Matt posted some great pictures to the Giant FB and Twitter pages. He was even caught line dancing with both of his left feet. I salute the organizers for a great production. Good weather helps too!

To all of the participants and coaching staffs, all the best. To the countless volunteers, congratulations on doing your part to help out, and for doing your part to showcase Canada to millions of people. To be honest, there are some spo... Click here
You have to wonder what the heck the Boston Bruins were thinking last Friday. Their moves and their drafting made even the Leafs look good by comparison, and that is saying something. First, the Bruins sent power forward Milan Lucic to the L.A. Kings for basically a first rounder. But in one of the most puzzling moves in hockey in a long, long time, the Bruins dealt defenceman Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for draft picks. What???? Why on God’s green earth would a team d... Click here
It's really amazing that the 'Weatherman' picked the weekend to unload. I was sitting in the sunshine Friday afternoon, tanning my shins and nose, thinking it was just a glorious day. But I had informed myself of the weekend forecast, knowing that Niagara was going to be 'flush' with rain.
It was the weekend of the Ft Erie Friendship Festival, Flavours in Port Colborne, along with the Art Crawl. At least the Thorold South Children's Fishing Derby ran without a ... Click here
It's time to celebrate Dad today! After talking and texting with a few listeners, I collected a few gems about dear ol' DAD.. Here are some of the comments: "Just once on Father's Day I wish my kids would give me a #1 Dad mug, instead of one with my actual ranking."
Remember, what Dad really wants is a nap.
I would give my Dad what he really wants on Father's Day, but I can't afford to move out yet.
The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the third time in six years on Tuesday night. First off, congratulations to coach Joel Quenneville and the entire Blackhawks club, I honestly believe the best team took home Lord Stanley’s mug. Secondly , as I watched the Cup being passed around on the ice late Tuesday night, I thought of the many, many Chicago fans in I’ve met over the years. There are still a lot of people in Niagara who fondly remember the... Click here
