Some topics covered this week:

  • It’s been quite the week for Canada in the headlines; a shooting in Ottawa and a firing at the CBC. Both of these stories have saddened me. My heart was heavy thinking about the families involved in the Ottawa shooting, both of the man who was killed and the man who did the killing. And as for the CBC I am grieving the news organization I have respected and loved for more than 30 years. I believe it is unjust for a man’s career to be ruined based on unproven allegations.
  • I’ve made a couple of purchases on ebay. I noticed I haven’t bought anything since Sept 19 – that’s what a holiday and illness will do! Stay tuned. One of the items is a pen so it will show up on here.

Until next week, happy writing!
