Father's Day with Rogers: Win a 4K TV! #MyDadJoke

What is it that happens to dudes when they become dads? One minute, they’ve got a completely normal sense of humour, and the next, it’s groaners all around.  Kid: Daddy, I’m thirsty! Dad: Hi Thirsty, I’m Dad! Nice to meet you!  ******* Kid: Daddy, wait, I’ve got something in my shoe! Dad: I’m pretty sure that’s your foot, son! “Why don’t crabs give to ... Read More »

These days we are hearing so much about how little physical activity time kids are getting at school. It happens for a variety of reasons – whether it is an increased pressure to complete curriculum requirements, or an over-crowding issue, leaving little indoor gym space.  Teachers are encouraged to do “DPA” – daily physical  activity for about 15 minutes, but ...

You can not know how thrilled I am that the #MonsterJam trucks are on their way back to Hamilton for another show. Didn’t peg me as a Monster Jam fan? I’m not. I’m really not.
