I’m actually really happy that the holiday season is over. A fresh start is so helpful sometimes. And one new thing that I’ve done and I hope you all enjoy is my new blog! I’ve profiled a number of peacemakers in Waterloo Region. These are organizations that are doing great things, helping people, and building […]


Just saw this going south on King. Amusing. Opera Kitchener performing La bohème at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga this Friday at 7:30pm. Guaranteed to be fantastic show, since I’m in it, as Townsfolk #3.

It is absolutely annoying that the Waterloo Public Square board now no longer posts events, instead posts a link to the events. So that now even if you’re at the Square, you need somehow access the internet before finding out what’s going on. How does this make any sense? Why not let passers-by know what’s […]
