September Resolutions

Everyone uses the New Year celebrations to make resolutions. For me, it has always felt like September was the best time to do that. With the kids going back to school, it’s a good time to reflect back on the summer it was and make some promises for the upcoming months. My summer this year was A LOT…

Sparks Street Ribfest

I like ribs! There I said it. Got that off my chest. Whew! Living with a wife who doesn’t eat red meat or pork and a son who has a typical kid’s bland carb-based diet can be tough when you enjoy meat as much as I do. I try to barbecue at home as much as possible because at least that way I can make sure…

Sweet Product Photography

Views from my Road

I’m so lucky to live in such a picturesque area. These are some of the views from my road. I Love being able to see lakes and trees and all the landscape that Eastern Ontario has to offer. Being able to step out my front door, take a five minute car ride, or 10 minute bike ride down my road…

National Gallery of Canada

I’ll admit, living in Toronto and not spending more time at the Art Gallery of Ontario (the AGO) was a crime against the art world. I literally had some of the best artwork in the world within a 40 minute drive from where I lived and I had been to the AGO only a handful of times. A HANDFUL! To…
