Castle – A Great TV Show

Various sources have been nattering on at me about Nathan Fillion, for a long time. A while back, there was a promotion at a store, where I got a free Castle Season 1 DVD. As a mid-season replacement, the Castle TV Show came in, with a short season. Being sick with a cold, I blasted… Continue Reading

Giving Thanks

It being Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, it seemed like an appropriate time to “take stock” and give thanks.* Thanks to the weatherman, for the sunshine, and for making us believe it is August in October.

Neither is “better”, each is effective in its own way. Last night I came across a very subtle… Continue Reading

Bullying

This morning, I had a flashback to my Elementary School days. I never particularly cared for school, as I was a shy, unathletic, short, scrawny glasses-wearing kid, and until my teens, when I started doing Judo, and working a job, was one of the skinniest rail-thin young boys. But, while watching The Rosie Show this… Continue Reading
