I shot this photo on expired Kodak 200 Ektachrome colour transparency E6 film and "cross-processed" it in C41 chemistry at a local department store photo lab hoping for some different colour effects. The effect was fairly... Continue reading

Apparently, it's the rainy season here in Uganda. All day today it has been pouring rain with a few breaks so we can dry out enough before the next deluge. Even my eyeballs are wet but it has not stopped the work on the music room which I have to... Continue reading

Back after a two-day hiatus and it looks like I missed some solid Rangers action. Kitchener took three of a possible four points on the weekend in a 4-3 win over Barrie and a 2-1 shootout loss to Saginaw. The latter hurt as the Blueshirts had a 1-0 lead with... Continue reading

An eight-acre field on Fischer-Hallman Road is dotted with hundreds of pumpkins, deep orange like the leaves on the trees that line the lot.

John Davenport bought Hamel Brooms and moved the Waterloo company to St. Jacobs in 1990. Established in 1908, the company had three owners before Davenport, who believed an open concept shop in a popular southern Ontario tourist hub would give the small company exposure. Davenport says Hamel is one of... Continue reading

It is just not a successful day in Uganda until someone on the road calls out "hey muzugu" when I walk past. Muzungu is a term for white people in Uganda, a recognition not an insult and it generally comes from the children though I expect the adults are thinking... Continue reading

It's a midweek edition of the OHL 10. Blame Thanksgiving for the lateness. 1. A great anecdote from Erie GM Sherry Bassin on forward Alex DeBrincat. Bassin: "I'm up in the Soo scouting and giving my scouting staff heck, I'm 75, what am I doing on the road up there?"... Continue reading

Enough was enough. After being the whipping boys of the Guelph Storm for eight consecutive games, the Kitchener Rangers finally returned the favour by beating the OHL's defending champs 6-5.

It wasn't the win the team was looking for but the Kitchener Rangers swiped a point from the Erie Otters in a 5-4 shootout loss Saturday night. So that's one point out of a possible four in the home and home series but more importantly a nice response after Friday's... Continue reading

I have covered so many Oktoberfest keg tappings I sometimes feel like the Bill Murray character in the movie Ground Hog Day. The truth is there is always something different about each one. Sometimes the keg is shaken and when tapped sprays beer towards the huddled media.. usually providing a... Continue reading
