So what the hell am I up to?
That's what Sonja asked a few days back. But so much more politely, I hasten to ask. I feel that I need to say something to break the suspense, you all deserve some kind of an accounting. Things have been hectic and I have had my hands full (Christmas and t...

PMS
We humans are ruled by hormones , pheromones , and craveomones . Many years ago we were sitting around the kitchen table. We were eating something good, but it couldn't have been entirely healthy. The kids began to read the ingredients on the labels of the ...

Life after snow?
Winter is here. I was rummaging in the storage locker today. For a brief moment I considered the Vespa's winter storage cover. Then I tossed it back on the shelf. Snow, Shmow. I'm in no mood to close the book on riding for 2016. It might happen, it might no...

Requiem for an epoch
My life began as we emerged from horrible decades of genocide, world wars, and depression. The lessons we learned at unimaginable cost gave rise to an era of stability, growth, and prosperity accompanied by unprecedented international cooperation. Today we ...

Scary story
The most remarkable totally scary thing is happening right before my eyes. It's one of those massive fog-bound freeway pile ups in slow motion. It's a system with the rules tossed out the window. None of the usual strategies like steering or braking apply...

Scribbled: Voting in a Democracy
Susan is a little concerned. She may be right. Lately I have taken to sending e-mails to Toronto Star columnists. I have also written to the Prime Minister on two or three occasions. We're not talking about angry Tweets, or dozens of e-mail messages, or abo...

Fall riff
Summer lasted forever . And then there was fall. As often happens when summer ebbs and leaves us contemplating the looming winter, life gets busy. What have we been up to? We've been busy. In mid-October I joined fellow members of the Toronto Motor Scooter ...

Canadians are a rare breed
If you are not yourself Canadian, the best way to understand what it means to be Canadian, is to study the ways of a quintessential Canadian. It's a little like birding. You need to learn the habitat, haunts and habits of the quintessential Canadian. Where ...

<i><h1>Eureka!!!</h1></i>
Toronto is not Montreal. I suppose that's painfully obvious, and it's a really good thing that that's the way it is. If Toronto were just like Montreal, that would mean be one less place worth visiting, and how sad would that be? Wouldn't it be great though...
