Remember to Remember

Remember to Remember

Remembrance Day is one of the most important in the year. Without those who gave their lives in past conflicts, the freedoms we take for granted today would not have been won. Take the time to think about those who fought for the rights and freedoms we cherish today.

Come, Come, Back to Jamaica

Come, Come, Back to Jamaica

These are the opening words to a song Jamaican musicians often play to visitors. I heard it the first time on our first trip a long time ago. Well, for about the 10th time I did go back, this time mostly for golf, but with a bit of touring as well. It’s a fascinating country with a people culture all its own. On this podcast you’ll hear from some of the people who help make it a great country.

Fly-in Fishing at Aikens Lake Lodge

From the moment we are greeted as the float plane landed at the lodge until we left four days later we experienced hospitality as good as you will find at any major resort. The staff were amazing. The shore lunches were a treat. And the stories and laugh will stick with us forever.

My Pilgrimage of Remembrance for an Uncle I Never Knew.

My Pilgrimage of Remembrance for an Uncle I Never Knew.

I travel to Holland and Germany interviewing Dutch people at the Holten Canadian Cemetery where he is buried. Then I go to Sogel Germany and am able to find the spot where he was killed in action, and where he was first buried before repatriation to Holten. An emotional but amazing experience. Interviews with many people illuminate a tremendous story of our soldiers, and the Holland people.
