It Takes a Village To Get To the Olympic Village

Featured Image: Pamela Ware & Jennifer Abel – half of Canada’s dynamic diving team heading to Rio.   One of the biggest commitments and complaints you’ll hear from the parents of competitive athletes in training is the constant driving. Driving to practice, to competitions, all of it made a little bit easier when you can count on a car pooling community. Your “village” of drivers is...

Hugging a Teen: Why It Can And Should Be Done

  “A hug is like a boomerang. You get it back right away.” – Bil Keane, creator of Family Circus And let’s be honest, there are some times where we equally don’t want to hug our teens. Maybe they’ve just finished playing road hockey in the heat for two hours, or maybe they’ve just finished explaining to you how old you are, in case you weren’t...

“Father’s Day” Is Every Day On A Journey To The Olympics

If there’s one thing we know about babies, it’s that as soon as you establish a routine with them, they break it. As parents, we adjust, move on, and establish new routines we know will also slide into oblivion. But when your work is training for the most prestigious and important sporting event in the world, that may be easier said than done. Canadian Olympic...

Climb Every Mountain

But what if neither spirit nor flesh is willing? No pressure, says Kathy Buckworth, who discovers motivation is personal. “You can do what you want. Or you can do nothing,” our host Kevin Tiemersma advises leading me through Tipiliuke Lodge, a unique and exclusive hunting lodge and resort nestled in the foothills of the Andes mountains in Patagonia, Argentina. I’m here as a guest of...

Kobo Challenge With Kobo Glo

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” Stephen King. When I read this quote from my favourite childhood author, it gave me hope. I read everything I could get my hands on as a kid, in particular all of Stephen King’s eerie books. As the writer of six books, I figure I’ve...

Qualicum Beach Is Rustic, Relaxing And Anything But Boring

“Relax, it’s Qualicum!” I heard this many times during my visit to this small Vancouver Island community, whose population of 8,900 swells to 16,000 in the summer. They boast the dubious honour of having the highest median age of any city in Canada. But if you think that means this is a sleepy, tea-room filled community, think again. “If you’re bored in Qualicum Beach, it’s...

Stickers or stars for cleaning your room, making the bed, maybe even brushing your teeth or being nice to a brother. But when Olympic gold medal trampoline athlete the Rosie MacLennan was a little girl, her Grandma kept an activity chart up at the cottage for her and...

Read With ‘Em, and Weep. Why Do We Hate Reading Glasses So Much?

“Pass ‘em over”, said our good friend Joe, to his wife, as we all peered at our menus in the darkened restaurant, trying in vain to read the tiny print without using the reading glasses that were making the rounds. Sooner or later, many Canadians will find themselves stretching their arms out to the point of shoulder dislocation, or using a magnifying glass from their...
