Gary October Gems, Harvesting History From Our Fields of Gold

2022-09-19T11:11:30-04:00

Harvesting Our History From the Gene Pool I love October. I love the crunch of leaves under my shoes and the amber glow of a tree’s canopy over my head. I much prefer the pleasures of hot chocolate, cozy sweaters, and crisp air to the unpleasantness of humidity, crazy cyclists, and mosquito bites. As [...]

Gary’s May Gems – A Clarion Call For Civility

2022-04-30T11:10:08-04:00

Gary’s May Gems - A Clarion Call for Civility I’m nostalgic for civility. That quaint concept where we treated others with respect regardless of whether or not we agreed with their opinions. Politeness isn’t a bourgeois affectation. Being kind isn’t a sign of weakness.  And manners existed beyond the pages of Emily Post. Good [...]

Confidence the Greatest Gift of All – Gary’s April Gems

2022-04-21T15:24:07-04:00

Confidence the Greatest Gift of All - Gary's April Gems The greatest gift we can give our children is confidence.  Before they start school, home is their world to explore with new land around every corner, a new “thingy” to touch, smell and taste. And with every new discovery, they become more confident.  Have [...]

Gary O’Blair’s March Gems – We Are All a Wee Bit Irish on the 17th

2022-04-20T09:12:29-04:00

Gary O'Blair's Gems - We're All a Wee Bit Irish on March 17th Ah, March, or as I sometimes refer to it, “Mud Month”. In my area of the globe, it usually starts with a snowstorm or two followed by wild fluctuations in temperature. I am so tired of dirty snow and mucky boots [...]

Gary’s January Gems – Are We Wasting Lessons From the Crisis

2022-04-20T09:13:34-04:00

Gary's January Gems - Are We Wasting Lessons Learned From the Crisis Winston Churchill advised us that “We must never let a good crisis go to waste.” My reaction when I first came across this quote was that it was a cynical joke. He was a politician after all.  Churchill is regarded as one [...]

December Gems-Reindeer on Rooftops and Turkeys in Kitchens

2022-04-20T09:14:01-04:00

Gary's December Gems, Reindeer on Rooftops and Turkeys in Kitchens I’m pulling out our 2019 December Gems and polishing them because repetition is the essence of tradition. Our Christmas traditions took a blow last year, and it’s pretty “iffy” if this year will be much better. But that’s why this time of year is [...]

2022-04-20T09:14:21-04:00

Gary's Gems - The Let Us Not be like November Issue  Is there anything redeemable about November? I always try to be positive but November challenges me. It's an endless thirty days between October’s colours and December’s tinsel. This is our second “COVID” November. Nothing to do except to adapt and find light [...]
