O.K., apologies to Tom Petty for the title of this blog. But ask just about anyone who has quit smoking how they’re doing, and they’ll tell you a lot of things. They’re feeling better, they’ve saved money, food tastes better. And oh yeah, they may not tell you how much, but they’ve maybe put on a few pounds. Weight gain seems to be something that is an unfortunate side effect of many attempts to kick the nicotine habit. You can&rsquo... Click here
According to the TV show Ghost Adventures, it is possible to capture images of ghosts using an Xbox with the Kinect add-on device. To watch a portion of the episode where they show how it's done CLICK HERE .... if you dare BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
We all know that fighting is a part of hockey. Some love it, some hate it. Either way it's not going away. Every now and again you see a fight that's pretty one sided. In this case, it was over before it even started. CLICK HERE to see a devastating one punch KO. He didn't even see it coming.
Game 7 of the World Series. A time for baseball heroes. A time when legends are born that we’ll remember for a lifetime. A time when life seems to stand still for sports fans. A time to pick a favourite team, whatever the reason may be, and cheer them on, even though you may not have seen them play more than a handful of times over the course of a season. Or at least, it used to be that way. I was reading somewhere this week that ratings for this year’s Fall Classic betw... Click here
The other day I paid a visit to BTO studios in Thorold to work out for half an hour with Dan Giancola; something I've been doing now for the past 6 weeks. Dan as always put me through a grueling workout to benefit my upper and lower body. We used the resistance bands, slamming an 8-10 pound ball into the ground and against the wall and my personal favourite(NOT REALLY), push ups. I was starting to feel good about myself until I could only manage 5 push-ups in 2 minutes, that was ... Click here
It’s municipal election day. Polls will be open from 10 o’clock this morning until 8 o’clock tonight. It’s an opportunity to have your voice heard by casting your vote for local, regional and school board representatives. It was good to see turnout way up at advance polls across the Region. That could be due to the fact more people are taking advantage of the convenience of advance polls, and is also likely due to the fact there are some very inte... Click here
Just putting the wraps on my portion of another SEVENTIES SUPER SUNDAY. It sure is great to relive the music and memories of a fantastic decade. Every girl wanted a mini dress like Marsha Brady. The guys wanted to put on their mint green polyester leisure suit, and pretend to be John Travolta. Or not. Maybe we just wanted to ROCK with Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Seger, the Stones and ZZ Top.
Tomorrow it's the Elections. Serious stuff now. Vote. As a PROUD NEW CANAD... Click here
One thing I promised to do when I started writing a blog about my attempt to stop smoking this summer was to be honest. I’ve been using the e-cigarettes from Nic Atomz Electronic Cigarette and E Juice Vape Shop at Niagara Square since late July, and am quite happy with how well it has worked. But as any smoker will tell you, and anyone who has learned more about nicotine addiction will know, there are certain “triggers” that make you want to have a smoke. W... Click here
As I was driving home yesterday listening to the horror which was unfolding in the Nation's Capital, I couldn't help but wonder how all this was able to take place. CSIS our security service had been keeping tabs on any nefarious character that was trying to enter in to Canada and we were getting a great deal of help from our American counterparts. Then, the anger started to build up. This attack was not perpetrated by a foreigner who mangaged to circumnavigate our immigration s... Click here
Where does one start....having a tough time articulating my thoughts on what happened at parliament yesterday. I'm worried, to say the least, about the direction our country might be heading in the wake of yesterday's cowards, I'm worried about the choices our leaders will be facing in the very near future....people are already talking about 'vengeance'......

Had a little car accident recently, good to be back in the saddle and back on Giant FM. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice to say my poor little G5 that I loved was totalled. I as was told by several people that morning, I was very, very lucky to be able to walk out of the car with just a bunch of cuts and bruises and soreness. If God forbid, something like that ever happens to you, it can really change your whole perspective on things. First off, I have an entirely new a... Click here
