Regina White Gold Rush

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 […]

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 […]

Spring Forward, Fall Back!

Saskatchewan is a province that doesn’t observe Daylight Savings Time and our safety statistics indicate we often don’t observe safety hazards. Falls are the most common cause of injuries. I know that I have taken unwarranted risks in the past that could’ve resulted in falling from a significant height. I realize that there are many […]

Garage Sale Safety

I’m quite certain that Regina, Saskatchewan is the center of the Garage Sale universe. On a particularly busy Friday or Saturday you would be able to find over 100 garage sales in the city of Regina. We just had a garage sale this past weekend and it always feels good to get rid of things and […]
