What a great day, not only did I get to meet Bobby Hull, and hang with my old friends, I got to catch up with some of the other media people I knew. One of them was Don Slade who had been at my going away party four years earlier when I was leaving for Saskatoon. Don was the longtime morning man at CKRC, and when he spotted me, a big smile appeared on his face as he walked over to greet me. When he asked how things were going at CKOM and I told him that I was no longer there that smile quickly turned into a frown. “Oh no,” he said, “What happened?” When I brought him up to date with the fact that I was now the station manager of CFTR in Toronto his frown turned into one of bewilderment.

What a great life Prince Harry and his new bride are going to have. Harry is six or seventh in line, so he doesn’t need to be trained to be a King. As a Prince, his only job will be to never embarrass the crown. Rock on Harry!
Isn’t it strange that in books written by women, the wedding usually comes near the end whereas it’s somewhere near the middle if written by a man?
Speaking of weddings, I think they may need to consider making marriage a little more male-friendly if they want it to continue.
I’m pretty sure that the only thing the current radio owners know about talent was that they were expensive.
I wonder if the British press will rip Harry’s new wife like the press here does Trumps? I think not though because the Brits can be sued for slander as they were when they accused Liberace of being gay. He made a fortune off of them when they couldn’t prove it even though he was.
Has anyone checked to see if Canada’s PM, Mr. Trudeau, or the PM’s before him ever placed and still have any tariffs on American products entering Canada?
Am I just being negative by assuming that things aren’t going to get cheaper during a trade war?
After a 20-year hiatus, I became a father again Since and have gone from Da Da to Daddy to Dad to Dude and am now back to Daddy. It’s great being a father but even more special being a Daddy.
Speaking of fathers, Cami’s grandmother Maggie, once told me that any man can become a father but it takes a hell of a man to become a daddy.
Mr. Trump, it doesn’t matter whose fault it is, we gave you the power to stop children being separated from their families. Use it or we will take it away from you.
