Watch out. Wife is thinking of going home for a couple of weeks in May with maybe the kids.

Its confirmed. Tickets are booked Wife is going home for 2 weeks but with only 2 kids (Otto and younger daughter). Since my older daughter is staying that pretty much killed what I had planned. 2 weeks of golf and poker at night.

Last time my wife went home it was August and we had no kids. I was either playing poker or ice hockey every single night.

I already tried to pawn her off at my sister's but my daughter doesn't want to go. So not sure what to do yet.

Huge night tonight Raptor fans. Spurs in town and with them the return of my favourite Raptor of all time.
The return of the man who was instrumental in the Raptors becoming a top franchise in the NBA over the last years, and one of the most honest to goodness good guys in the NBA.

Welcome home Rudy Gay!

Okay you had me but honestly Demar will always be a Raptor to me. He resigned when no one did in the past. Was not a quitter like Vince.

I was inside the this building on Friday working. I've got to know some of the people who work in the barber shop and live in the building where the fire started. One guy in particular helps me every 2 month, nice guy, I really hope he's okay.

It was our station amd my shift that was first in. Incredibly tough conditions, fire was through the whole building. We wouldn’t even have gone inside because of the high level of heat and fire except it was known there were likely occupants. The two guys from the squad at my hall pulled both victims out of the basement. Even for us, pretty dramatic rescue. Tough one.

it was sketchy for a bit. But risk a lot to save a lot. Worth it. Tragic. I feel for Corrado too. Guys been cutting hair there for like 50 years.

Corrado was a neighbourhood institution. He's been retired from cutting hair but you're right about him cutting hair for 50 years. He owns both the building with the barber shop in it and the one next to it where I think the fire started.
