Broken mirrors

One of the reasons I like living in Regina is it only takes me about 10 minutes to get to work each morning. In that 10 minute drive I have noticed at least 4 or 5 vehicles that have damaged side mirrors. It’s not the latest winter fad, but it’s happening because the streets have […]

It has been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I think the metric safety equivalent might be a gram of safety prevention avoids a pile of HURT.

There has been a lot of snow in Regina this year and I’m sure the snow clearing budget was used up long ago. Apparently the record snowfall we had in November alone was more than all snowfall from last winter. I heard yesterday that they are clearing streets 20 hours a day, 7 days a […]

Sending my Regrets

I was reading the story of another injury survivor who is a motivational speaker who lost a limb and I was shocked to read they never think of what their life would’ve been like if they still had their limb.

Look Before You Leap

Looking back there are likely things that happened in your life that you sit and ponder how different life could’ve been. One of those instances for me was the summer before I turned 21. It was one of those actions that completely defy logic. Something that you can’t really make sense of no matter how […]
