My wife Gwen and I are part of the first wave of baby boomers. We were born on the west coast of Canada, grew up here and raised three young adults who, with their new families, enrich our lives immeasurably.
If we could afford it, our leisure time would be consumed by travel, learning and experiencing history, food and culture of unique people and places.
And now, words from our sponsor:
I accept short term assignments as a consultant or writer/researcher. I have long experience in a broad range of small business activities with a particular focus on accounting and financial management. If you aim to tell a simple personal or business story, or require a formal business plan to communicate visions, goals and comprehensive financial plans, contact me for affordable services.
I write and edit this blog alone. I favour public education, efficient social programs, democratic trade unionism, free competitive markets and encouragement of owner-operated businesses. I believe journalists and public and quasi-public servants should be subject to stringent measures of accountability and conflict prevention.
I am not compensated for any opinion and views expressed are honestly held. Please, though, verify any claim, statistic, quote or other representation I make.
