From pitches to poker: the alternative life of rugby stars
Submitted Story

- Apr. 13, 2014: Fame, fortune and in the peak of physical fitness - you’d think that today’s rugby players would be contented with their lifestyles, right? You’d be wrong - today’s rugby stars, or indeed, yesterday’s, also seem to have a penchant for poker, and it’s making we normal folk feel jealous. If you’re not much good with a ball or a pair of cards, you can try your luck at Gamblingland instead, and before you know it, you might just be raking in the same big bucks as some of these rugby stars.

Lake St. Clair is opening up so our neighbours have returned: redheaded ducks, mergansers, scaups, mallards and our good friends the swans. The swan was captured while I was sitting on the dock and I felt he stopped midair to look at me and have a chat. Here's to Spring! FULL STORY

Stoney Point - Apr. 4, 2014: April is Autism Awareness Month and as many of you know, our son Tristan is on the spectrum. We have been living and breathing autism for just over two years now and so have Tristan's siblings, our extended family and friends. We were suspicious when Tristan was a year old but he's also epileptic and at that time we were focused on his seizures (100 seizures by the age of two) and we were working with a genetic team exploring various syndromes.
