I trust you survived winter. It was pretty hard core around the Great Lakes region. The snow and cold temperatures rivaled the best mother nature threw at us way back in ’39. Why, by golly, that’s when snowbanks were 12 feet high and we had to tunnel to school through them. Bare footed. You know the deal.
Not to dwell on the previous season or festive occasion, but if St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland I know a few groundhogs I’d like him to eradicate.

Dillon has grown so much in three short months that he is now officially an adult! If anyone messes with his 2-year old sister, Teaghan, you’ll have to deal with him.
Clean Water Heads Due South
TV viewers on both sides of the 49th parallel might remember the actor, Paul Gross, as the lead from the hit television show, ‘Due South’ about a Canadian Mountie in the U.S.
Paul wrote and stars in the new political thriller ‘H2o: The Trojan Horse’ (trailer here).
Yours truly appears as a reporter in the 2-part mini-series which has a slightly more sinister cross border relationship than the faux mounted cop’s earlier vehicle.
When the Prime Minister of Canada is found dead, his son, Tom McLaughlin (Gross), takes over the job bent on finding the true reason of his father’s death. Meanwhile, the United States‘ crucial water supply has nearly dried out. Tom accepts the President‘s plan to divert part of the Great Lakes to help Canada’s southerly neighbours. However, certain individuals slowly piece together a conspiracy that threatens Canada’s existence.
All I’m saying is the glacier that formed in our backyard this winter will provide enough clean drinking water for us all!
The first part of this four hour program airs this Sunday night on CBC television (8:00 pm EDT)
