Building Character

 

I came across this today. It is attributed to Bi-Lo grocery store pioneer Frank Outlaw but others say it is Mahatma Gandhi.  Regardless, I think they're great and are definitely words to live by.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

On a Thursday evening in May, in the Spring of 1961, my mother fried some pike fillets and sent me with them to the Lady Minto Hospital. I brought them to my grandfather, who lay there in the last stages of cancer. I was twelve years old, and he, sixty seven.

"Hello", I said, as I entered his room.…

If you knew Lloyd.... his story, and my thoughts

I met Lloyd Romanello in 1980. He was one of my first hunting clients when I began a hunting and guiding service in the Timmins area of Northeastern Ontario.

We quickly became friends because of a number of things. He was a man who loved the outdoors, was a natural leader, a former sergeant in the U.S. Army, who cared for his crew in the service, and a very considerate person. While on the hunts with me. He'd…

Aboriginal Education Month: child welfare services on reserves

Although the theme of Aboriginal Education Month is "Aboriginal Presence in the War of 1812", I wanted to write briefly about what is currently a very live issue in Canadian law - the funding of child welfare services to First Nations children on reserves.

First Nations children are overrepresented in all areas of social concern. In contrast with non-Aboriginal children and youth, First Nations children are more likely to be born into poverty, to suffer health…

Aboriginal Education Month

November is Aboriginal Education Month. Although this year's theme is 'Aboriginal Presence in the War of 1812', I'd like to take this opportunity to recommend a couple of fiction books written by aboriginal author - Joseph Boyden.

A Favourite Thought-Topic For Me - Evolution of Humankind

On October 14, 2012, my son Allan and I toured New York City's American Museum of Natural History.

Confessions of a 70-Year Toronto Toy Man

Some of you already know Louie from my "Louie's Day at the Park" article. After sitting with him over a couple of breakfasts, I've decided capture more of this beautiful man's rich life.



To be honest, I have to admit that even after knowing Louie for 15 years, I never really know him at all. Sure I knew that he was a big baseball fan and that he's a talented craftsman, and maybe even that he's a little fussy about the things he likes to eat. However, I really didn't know Louie until…
