It’s Just that Good!

Brucesters! Hey, so summer is unofficially here! The weather has been brilliant in Toronto. The city is a buzz with festivities and culture events. Lots of stuff was or is happening. You can check local BIA’s for info on what’s going on in different parts of the city. Did you know that? I think it’s […]

The Vinyl Resurgence

Brucesters! Tech this! Tech that! App this! App that! Stream this! Stream that! Spotify! iTunes! Netflix! It’s all so antisocial and non committal. It’s using someone else’s underwear. Rip it off some cyberspace and lose it all with a virus crash. Don’t misunderstand me I love all this on the spot, self gratifying, get where […]

The Inked Butcher

Brucesters! It’s the long weekend B.I.T.C’s! It’s time to get your BBQ fired up! If you’re in the Toronto area I found the baddest butcher in the city!!! Mark Michelin has been a member of Toronto’s St. James Town community located in the heart of Old Cabbagetown since 1971. He’s cool! He’s inked! He’s really […]

Oh bada boom, badda bing!

It feels like a lifetime ago when I rented a small white house just across the parking lot from the Oshawa Centre. I had gotten a job at East Side Mario’s as a server. I must have been in my early 20’s. I don’t think since that time have I ever gotten closer to people […]

Surprise Me

Before I get started I want to welcome back my wonderful editor Mary Ellen. You were missed. I hope you had an amazing trip. I was creeping your posts and it looks like you had a blast and your family too! So, yes, welcome home. Today’s blog, I have to admit, has become one of […]

Shut Up and Eat With Me

Brucesters! Dang! Spring like weather arrived in Toronto for a couple of days this week and I started feeling inspired enough to get out of bed. Then the snow came. Did I mention how much I hate February? All through February, John and I have been dealing with that flu, which literally lasts a month, […]

Grin and Bear it!

The city is a big old place and it can certainly feel like that from time to time, but then something fabulous happens. You run into an old pal from high school days. We never spoke a lot in high school. We kind of ran with different social groups. I was a glee kid and […]

Bearded Fur Christmas!

It’s Christmas Eve in the city and around the world. A lot of hustle and bustle today. Then the quiet of one of the most significant nights on the planet. The year is closing in and family and friends gather to take a moment to forget the crazy of world politics and of wars and […]
