Underground Adventure

The idea intrigued me, then I heard the event was free, which moved it into the “must see” category. ‎Scottish ancestry you know. Kontinuum is an underground adventure happening in Ottawa this summer, ending September 14. For me the major appeal was that much of it takes place in one of the new underground light […]

Music With A Message

Sometimes a line resonates with you; it speaks to your soul. I saw Switchfoot perform earlier this year. First time I had seen them in concert since 2011.

The Captain’s Daughter

When I reviewed With You Always in this space I thanked the author, Jody Hedlund, for resisting the impulse to place historical characters into the romance.

A Beautiful Day In Ottawa?

As I was sitting in the upper level of Toronto’s Rogers Centre on Friday, listening to U2, Bono, the band’s vocalist, started talking about Canada. He seems to hold a high view of us as a country. That may be because he hasn’t spent all that much time here, hasn’t had time to get a […]
