Bryan Adams Concert in Toronto

Yes, I like Bryan Adams. I don’t care how corny some of his songs can be, he is classic. The decision to make the trip to the concert in Toronto was a last minute one. We both weren’t too busy at...

Picture of the Week: On The Rink

There is a little park in our neighbourhood, and each year the community puts up a homemade outdoor ice skating rink, also used for hockey practice by the kids. I snapped this picture when walking...

ACDC In Ottawa

On Monday, ACDC played in Ottawa and we had the chance to go see them. The place was packed with over 17,000 fans and the concert was sold out. Sure, we didn't have great seats like we did for Green...

Radiohead was playing in Montreal and we drove the 400 km there and back to attend the show. By the time we got through the security, we were soaked. The park where the concert was held was extremely...

Hockey (2/10)

One of the reason we can stand the cold weather and long winters is... hockey, Canada's national sport. Think soccer for Brazil, NFL football for the US or cricket for India. That popular. Hockey is...
