Many people don't know this, but I'm a Second City Toronto graduate. I have performed improv comedy in Canada, UK and Ireland. In fact, I had an improv troupe for about a year when I lived in Galway, Ireland. I attribute my love for public speaking with everything I learned from performing improv.

My head has been spinning lately. I’ve been working my tail off, but often feel like I’m chasing it. I realize that social media and email can leave you feeling overwhelmed... it leaves me overwhelmed too. I've decided to spend the next couple of weeks retooling.

We happened upon Jimmy T's Place when we were visiting with our kids. My wife and I are suckers for amazing diners and Jimmy T's doesn't disappoint. The couple who run it were incredibly kind. They even made something for my kids that wasn't on their menu, because the kids had requested it. That is great service. I love that the restaurant has been in the cook's family for 100 years. Great food, wonderful people, lovely neighborhood just down the road from the Capitol.
