Grey Cup 2018 – in between the zip-lining, Justin Beaver, the name of the new Atlantic CFL franchise, Mexican football and the CFL Player Awards – it almost feels like the CFL is unfolding nicely as the Calgary Stampeders and Ottawa Redblacks prepare for their second Grey Cup meeting in three years.

Never Again

November 11, 2018 - 10:36am

As we have approached Remembrance Day – I have been ruminating over what this day is: a day to remember.

Rightly so, we focus on the soldiers who have fought and sacrificed everything. We see their photos and honour the dead. We proudly display the photos and medals of our forefathers, family, friends who have served or who are currently serving.

With the world as it is today – I remember what they sacrificed, fought and often died for.

Being in my 50s, I grew up knowing soldiers who had returned from WWII.

What Teenagers Need to Know About Their Parents

So often, I see articles about What Parents Need to Understand About Their Teens.

Being the mom of a 13 year old, I delve into these articles looking for information on what my teen needs from me.

In the articles it tells me that teens will push you away but still need you. OK. Check. That makes sense.

I am told that my teen will be struggling for independence. OK. Yes. That’s important!

That when asked over and over and over why they should do what I’ve asked – I’m not to resort to, “Because I said so.”
