The Epistle of Q — Chapter 181

Something special happened… Well, here we are again – the oldest living grad of Toronto’s SICK KIDS hospital is celebrating her 106th birthday… On a different note, yesterday was somewhat weird – maybe because it was the eve of the aforementioned birthday? The day started reasonably enough with a mini-workout followed by a trip to […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 180

Before this year comes completely to a conclusion, you really should take in a couple of interesting movies… Netflix provides us with The Glass Onion – a throwback to the old who done it movies we went to in college and those early supposed adult years.

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 177

Another response… Yesterday I received another missive from a dear friend who happens to live in Ottawa.

I am not going to quote at length from the letter, in […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 176

Winter has officially started in the Okanagan… Oh, I’m not talking about the unusual accumulation of snow down in the Valley where we are supposed to be living in a desert. I am talking about the fact that on this date (December 5th) real winter started… Firstly, by 7:00 a.m. I had made my first […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 175

Oooops, at least one person is very upset with me… One of my eastern readers, while thanking me for my perspective on THE ACT, warned me that I would no doubt get some serious blowback. And that I did, although not as overwhelming as I might have thought. The respondent was quite clear that my […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 174

Just a short chapter to bring you up-to-date on the film scene. As The Glass Onion is yet to be released to theatres in my area and not on Netflix for a couple more weeks, and since I have not started watching my usual Christmas season movies (Charlie Brown’s Christmas, The Polar Express & Love […]
