It’s November 30th and the temperature in Toronto is a balmy 15C, or like 45F. It should be 0. Not that I’m complaining but can you say “global warming”?!?
I want to run for Provincial Politics one day? Or do I? Maybe I should start municipally? I started up a residents organization for the 5500 residents in my community and were delivered flyers to each and every resident. It was exciting, great exercise and a great way to meet people in the community. I have also arranged a fundraiser for our new city councilor, Karen Stintz. She’s young, involved and looks to be a great councillor. One day she will run for Mayor!
I have always wanted to yell, “you can’t handle the truth”. Oops… Different dream. Problem is… City councillors make around $95K a year, while MPP’s (provincial government) make like $80K. Who can live on $80K in the City of Toronto??? Geez.
My Toronto Raptors are 5-10 on the season but are still 1 game out of first place… Love it!
News yesterday indicated that wrestling star, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has cancer. My thoughts are with you!
My friend, and Uber-talented Jazz musician, Dr. Andrew Jacob Scott (go buy his CD’s!!!), is playing a gig this week that will see him rubbing shoulders with Hockey legends Steve Yzerman, Igor Larionov and Paul Coffey to name a few. He asked me to find some hockey cards to get signed and I found them today – I have over a couple hundred thousand cards and need to find a buyer for the commons and lesser none players not in sets. Problem is… The industry sucks and when collecting sets as a kid, I never imagined that I would have 2 boys to pass them along to. Good thing I have 2 Gretzky rookie cards, eh?
Today my boy looked at the cover of the Hockey News magazine and after a little prompting said, “Modano, Sakic” for the 2 players on the cover. Ahhhh. Brought tears to my eyes.
