Vacation Time…...
It’s 2 a.m. and I’m sitting here typing away and playing music (Phonte – Charity Starts at Home…wow, talk about a strong album).  This isn’t strange…well at least not for me.  I tend to like being up at night, but then I also like to work out... 
Know Your Enemy...
So we’ve just completed day four of Occupy Toronto and while I agree with the general notion of the movement, it doesn’t really seem very focused.  The lack of cohesion in the movement has already been well documented, so I’m not going to go on about that, but what... 
The Most Difficult Part...
There are tons of ways to screw up your kid, that’s pretty much a fact. I won’t get into all of the things that you can possibly do wrong, but it’s a list that’s a mile long. Parenting can be challenging and really, if by now you don’t realize that, you... 
Costco and the Breakdown of Common Decency
Costco and the Breakdow...
Sometimes I shop at Costco. I don’t really know why, because it’s not like I have this giant family or am living in a dorm, but I usually find myself there at least once a month buying the standard staples for the modern family. Bread, juice, Perrier (what…I seriously... 
Breaking Down Some Elec...
Found something interesting in the Globe and Mail today highlighting the energy platforms of three of the parties in the upcoming Ontario election.  Strangely absent is the platform of the Green Party…that is, THE PARTY WHOSE PLATFORM SHOULD PROBABLY BE EXAMINED WITH REGARD... 
Thoughts on Steve Biko...
Whenever we get around this time of year, September 11, obviously, we all think about the tragic events that took place in 2001.  It is sad to see (but at the same time somewhat understandable) that the coverage of memorial services for victims of the attacks on the World Trade buildings... 
Lachine...
Sometimes you just need to get away.  It sounds like such a cliche, but sometimes you really do just need to get away from anything you are dealing with.  That’s kind of what Life in Parc is all about. Anyway, I took out the bike today and headed down to the Lachine Rapids. ... 
Mindsets and Mines...
It seems like sometimes our (and by our, I mean the Western world) attention span is incredibly short, but even shorter when regarding anything to do with Africa. One of the posts from yesterday talks about a 15 year old trying to do something to raise awareness and funds for Darfur. ... 
What were you doing at ...
I don’t remember a lot of what I was doing at 15 years old, but I think most of it was centred on thinking about driving or thinking about girls.  I had a pretty good grasp on world issues, but had no intention of trying to change the world or make it a better place through...
