It didn't look like the Rangers had any hope Friday after the first period against Owen Sound. The team trailed three zip and had nothing going for it. Then they came alive, in large part due to Connor Bunnaman, Mike Davies and Brandon Robinson and the team rallied to lose... Continue reading

The guys showed up this morning to start replacing the floor in the library and what a horrible job. It was at least 30C today, a blistering sun and the poor guys had to use a pick axe to break up the old floor first then they hauled up bag... Continue reading

Sick of seeing the Attack yet? Well get used to it. This is just game three of seven by Jan. 1 for the two clubs. At least the Owen Sound-Kitchener rivalry is a good one this year. The teams split the first two meetings so this is the tie-breaker. You'll... Continue reading

1. I absolutely love Belleville's acquisition of Brett Welychka from the London Knights. The Bulls paid handsomely in veteran Aaron Berisha and a 2nd and 3rd round pick but hardly mortgaged the future. Welychka is the perfect kind of add as well in that he's not a player the Bulls...

What a difference a year can make. Last season the Rangers couldn't get close to the Storm and lost all eight meetings. This time around? Well, so far they're 2-0 against the defending OHL champs. The latest instalment of beat-the-Storm went down last night in a 4-1 thumping. It was... Continue reading

Ev purchased a toaster for the house yesterday so this morning was the inagueral run. Our two house helpers were fascinated. They had never seen one before and couldn't believe a little machine could do that to bread. We spent much of the day in the library today, boxes and... Continue reading

Time for a rematch. Kitchener took out Guelph 6-5 earlier this month at the Aud to break an eight-game losing skid against the Storm. This time, the Rangers will no doubt see goalie Justin Nichols for the entire game. The ace relieved Matt Mancina last time and didn't allow a... Continue reading

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

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
