A special time of the year

For a Canadian, even one who has been out of the country for over a decade, NHL playoffs are a special time of the year. As a child, I fondly recall the ceremony and ritual that revolved around playoff hockey. My Dad, Boo (aka Alain Bouillon) and I would retreat to the 'rec room' downstairs, take out the TV tables and load them up with whatever sumptuous assortment of goodies my Mom had been kind enough to prepare. We would then settle in for several hours of intense oohing, aahing and,…

Go Jump in the Pool!

Go jump in the pool!

 I was lucky to get my hip replacement just as I retired and would have free time during the day to get back into shape. The physiotherapy rehabilitation exercises were quite demanding, and I resented the pain and effort every day ( I was dutiful though),  but I was excited by the opportunity to try aqua-therapy. I have always been a water baby, lifeguarding my way through university, and swimming competitively in younger days, so this looked like a good…

My next read

I was waiting at the dentist office this week, flipping through an old Readers Digest, & came across an article on Thomas King, novelist & educator.

Having experienced first hand the same social views towards Natives, I look forward to reading it. I could not find online the interview with Readers Digest to post, in which the… Continue

Beauty: Still in the eye of the beholder!

As most of you know, I have passed the 50 year mark in my life. As such, my hair is greyer; my eyes are heavier, etc, etc. Yes, I'm getting older but I am also getting wiser, or at least, I am becoming more enlightened about life and I feel great about the opportunities in front of me as the years will unfold.

I do have to admit that when I pass by a mirror and catch a glimpse of myself, I'm not necessarily…

Global perspectives

I am very selective when it comes to conferences. As anyone in a corporate environment can attest, the market is flooded with organizations that poach resources and people's time to populate content and attendance at their events...all at a tidy profit and rarely with adequate return value.

Such was not the case at the World Travel and Tourism Council Annual Global Summit, part of which I attended earlier this week in Abu Dhabi (which is about an hour or so south of Dubai by…

My Close Encounter with Flying Saucers

One of my favorite personal stories also happens to be one of my closest encounters with flying saucers and with some pretty significant Canadian heritage. The story begins about 25 years ago (around 1987) on a NordAir 737 flight somewhere over Lake Huron on a trip from Toronto to Sault Ste. Marie where we were living at the time. I guess NordAir is a bit of Canadian heritage…
