Welcome friends and fellow gleeful shut-ins (A world where staying at home all week is not only acceptable but encouraged is something I've dreamed of all my adult life) to the second round of the Theoretical Women's World Curling Championships! Held this year in the filthy, stench-filled sewer lovely and totally normal

Dick: Many days ago I went to buy a roll for my bathroom. I reached for the last one they had but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him I realized there had to be another way. Man cornered in elevator: What happened to the roll? Dick: It was destroyed. But out

Welcome to the BC Dick Curling Hour! (or hours. Got some slow readers in this group) We find our heroes, the local novice curling team, in a precarious position this week. Holding our 6-2 record high but mired deep in the bog of a two-game losing streak, we entered the club under

Memories. Such fleeting beasts. Three weeks it had been since our last novice curling league triumph. A bye week one Friday followed by a defeat the next. A score of days plus one since we had raised our brooms aloft in glory, dripping with the sweet sweat of conquerors crushing

Some games define teams. Some serve merely to confirm what we think we know. On Friday night my novice curling team took our 6-0 record to what is basically our home sheet against a winless team of mismatched jam canners. If Vegas had a say we’d be prohibitive favourites; Dolphins at

My novice curling league was on hiatus this past weekend but there was the little matter of the Canadian Women's Curling Championship, AKA The Scotties Tournament of Hearts! This year's Scotties was held in friendly Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. As a result, there was a huge amount of farm-related advertising on TSN.

Have you folks ever seen Death in Paradise? Let me tell you, it is one delightful television series.  I saw the newest one (at least the newest to air in Canada) on Monday. It is the most unrealistic, toothless murder show imaginable but I love it. A British detective/murder show set

I bring to you today a question about the social contract in hopes of making a case of my own and perhaps to glean some insight from some of yous who deign to read and consider my thoughts on the matter. This is not about the grand, all-encompassing social contract

The season of NFL football is in the books. The games were good, the better teams won. The cheaters were not rewarded this time. The super bowl had me cleaning my dog hair-ridden hovel and making pulled pork for an expected group of 10-12, half of whom ended up not coming

Nothing like a good dose of corporate sleaze to remind us all what's important in this life. After some basketball star (et al) dies, Planters pulls an ad featuring the death of Mr. Peanut. Notably, it included neither a helicopter crash nor Kobe Bryant. But in the interest of all of

What follows is a curling scoreboard. Not one of those fancy ones you see at your your Scotties and your Briers and various Grand Slam events. No, this is a plain old standard local curling club scoreboard. Unfortunately, they can no longer have the MacDonald Tobacco logo which graced so

"Most of one's life is one prolonged effort to prevent oneself thinking" - Huxley This may well be the most accurate assessment of my life I have ever come across. It also sums up the divisional playoff game predictions I made last week. Sort of, I guess. I don't want to
