I’m back to square one in the Stanley Cup playoffs, that is, with no Canadian team or teams taking part, who to cheer for? A Giant FM listener e-mailed last week pointing out that the Florida Panthers had the most Canadian on the roster of any of the playoff teams, so they suddenly had my allegiance. But sadly, my new team was eliminated in six games by the New York Islanders, so what to do? I’ve got it, although this may be the result of undiagnosed concussion... Click here
Well it looks as though New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have to miss the first four games of the 2016 NFL season, including a week 4 matchup at home against the Buffalo Bills. A U.S. federal appeals court has reinstated Brady’s four game suspension for his involvement in the ‘DeflateGate’ scandal. He seems to be out of options at this point, short of taking his case to the Supreme Court. Hey, it’s Brady, it’s the Pat... Click here
The other night I was watching Saturday Night Live and it was a show dedicated to Prince so as you can imagine there was a lot of great music. On Sunday night Bruce Springsteen opened up his show in New York with a rendition of “Purple Rain” he belted out a soulful version while the stage was bathed in purple.
Over the last few days there have been a number of musicians who have been paying their respects to the diminutive one and it seems that ev... Click here
Noticed a story on CBC about GEORGE ORWELL, who died in 1950. Much is still relevant today. George's most famous line, "Big Brother is Watching You" came from his most famous book, 1984. Orwell asks us to be vigilant, be on guard for Freedom, and to keep the faith: Decency, Tolerance and Humanity. Be aware of the terms 'Doublethink, Thoughtcrime and Newspeak'.
1984 sounded many warnings about privacy and state surveillance. Big Brother is Watching YOU.

Congratulations go out to all the gals from the Royal Canadian Legion Zone B5 for a tremendous night last Saturday at Branch 4 in Welland . I had the pleasure and privilege of MC’ing “An evening of stars”, a fundraiser for homeless veterans in Niagara. Not only was it a great night of entertainment, with a top-notch lineup of entertainment, along with some great food, prizes, dancing and more, but a ton of money was raised for the cause. I got a call yester... Click here
The other night Donald Trump was at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo for what turned out to be another raucous rally. This is not the first time that “Trump” supporters have gotten behind their leader and loudly voiced their support. There were a few protesters who were dragged out of the arena with Trump waving goodbye at each and every one of them and no doubt hoping he never has to see them again. As Trump’s numbers continue to rise, most people... Click here
