We're getting our fifteen minutes of fame this Wednesday, November 12th when I'm being interviewed on Sirius XM Satellite Radio from 10:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.  by Christine Bentley (former newscaster at CTV Toronto) on the morning show called "What She Said" about my newly-released book, BOOMERBROADcast.

Ann-Marie MacDonald opens up

Let me begin this review of Ann-Marie MacDonald's newest book, Adult Onset by stating up front that I'm a huge fan of her writing. Fall on Your Knees was an incredible and unforgettable read. The Way The Crow Flies fictionalized a very tragic event in the history of Ontario law enforcement in a way that kept me reading and trying to predict the outcome through every page. I love the way she paints the scenery, gives life and depth to her characters and spins a yarn that keeps me engaged…

While I enjoy going to the movies and have a passing interest in the industry behind it, I'm not generally a fan. Except when it comes to a few women and one of those women is Diane Keaton. I fell in love with her style…

Well-heeled means not wearing Manolo Blahniks

Pearl Bailey once said, "I've been rich and I've been poor and honey, rich is better." I know I've certainly been poor at times in my life and it was not fun. Not having money can mean living a simple, happy, uncomplicated life but in today's world it more often means worrying about not having enough to pay our bills, how to save for a home or vacations, or the big one, how to retire comfortably. After hearing the young author interviewed on the radio, I just finished reading a…
