Previously on Episode 1 of "There's Got To Be A Better Way: Portrait of a Wannabe Volunteer", I explained what the criminal records check protocol is for people who, apparently have no fingerprints.

Today in Episode 2, and in the exciting conclusion tomorrow, Jill and I offer another solution... my take on "A Better Way"!

Please enjoy.

Today we launch the first episode in the world's first 3 part micro series docu-drama; a film called: "There's Got To Be A Better Way" (complete with original soundtrack).

Today's installment frames a unbelievable situation I was faced with before Christmas. Episodes 2 and 3 will blow your mind.

This is a love story. A story of fathers and sons, of husbands and wives standing up against a cruel and unjust system. In this film, Tom Brokaw meets Tom Cruise. You'll laugh , you'll cry and, most of all , you'll become informed.

Now relax for the next 3 minutes .... And prepare yourself.

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to travel to Namibia Africa and I joined The Professors for the filming of their music video "Holiday," for the +Gondwana Collection Namibia. Hope you like it.

My Timmins friend +Dr Luc Lemire, has a great testimonial from his chiropractic patient. If you are living with pain that other medical experts say can't be cured don't stop looking for experts who know that it can be. +A Whole Body Wellness Centre

Traveling to Namibia this past summer was one of the most unique and enjoyable trips I've ever taken. Certain parts of the country are currently experiencing drought though and my friends there have undertaken a social media initiative designed to raise awareness about water conservation in the country until the rains return. I took the #RainDanceNamibia challenge and, in the process, dusted off my dancing shoes. For the record, I may have hurt myself.

Please Like and Share if it moves you! :D

I get so damned fired up after a good Broadway musical. Everything I say for the 12 hours following a show is delivered as a song.
