A life-altering injury

What does a life-altering injury look like? An injury looks different from many different vantage points. Last year I was “handed” a huge compliment, “If anyone asked me what a life altering injury looks like I will tell them about your story.” The goal of my crusade is to provide a deep enough glimpse of […]

The Weight is Over

Well actually the wait is over and the weight is under. The wait is over because I’ve finally published a blog … sorry for the hiatus. The weight is under because my focus on weight loss has been successful. I never planned on using my blog to help inspire me to change, but I suppose […]

Successful weight gain

At the start of the New Year I stepped on the scale … it blurted out 183 pounds. Ahhh … I’ve been here before, but how and why did I return? A friend of mine told me “I just can’t gain weight”, well it appears I don’t have that problem. I didn’t get here in […]

Minus 49

It was minus 49 degrees with the wind-chill this morning. Brrrr. That’s crazy cold. It’s not quite to the point where you could throw water into the air and it comes down as ice, but that doesn’t feel too far away. It’s one of the days your tires feel like squares as you drive to […]

Footwear – Essential PPE

My wife calls me a centipede because I have so many shoes down by the door. I take the criticism on the chin since she’s absolutely right, but each pair of shoes seems to have its own purpose. As I walked down the hall I saw one of my co-workers sporting a pair of sandals […]

They caught my attention because I could hear them enjoying their day just outside my window. There was three of them working together sharing a little camaraderie as they soaked up the sunshine. I admired their work and the fact they were working away without a care in the world. Their work was efficient and […]

Warnings till we’re blue in the face

I’m sitting at the airport waiting for my flight. It’s almost impossible to focus because there is so much activity, but I needed to stop everything and write this down while I remember. The announcements, so many announcements … they’ve got me in a state of wonder. I’m wondering why do people wait so long […]

Unaddressed Hazards

At last year’s garage sale I was reminded of the result of not addressing a hazard. This really wasn’t a safety hazard, but actually a security hazard. It was the last couple of hours in our 2-day garage sale and we finally convinced our son to bring his Play Station Portable (PSP) into the garage […]

Odd Urinal Scenario

You know how it is when you see something and you just know that it’s a bad idea? Kind of like a parent watching your kids and you say “Watch out!” and the child is amazed you predicted they would wipe out. I saw something like that this week. It struck me as odd. It’s […]

Spring Blizzard?

I’ll start off by saying I don’t travel nearly as much as many of my clients. I have only travelled 2,000 km inside of a week on a couple of occasions. If you’re not battling fatigue or weather issues, travel is not usually that difficult. This week, the weather has made travel extremely treacherous. I […]
