Are we being LIED to about Syria and Chemical Weapons Use?

By Shaun Gibson, published on Aug 26, 2013

A different spin on the Syrian issue just now, I will ask the Question, is Syrian being filled with Western supporters in terms of people with Guns, terrorists, with Western views? I think it is possible. In Libya I believe Western thinking people came in from the East and destabilized the entire country, Gaddafi went from being held head high through his country in support to being killed live on TV. I know friends from Libya and they said after Gaddafi died that is was the belief of many that Western controlled al Qaeda fighters, who were armed to the teeth by the West were to blame,... (more)

Cotton Castle Caught in Calamity!

By Steve Gillick, published on Jul 28, 2012

In 1990 I had the opportunity to spend three weeks in Turkey, travelling from Istanbul in the west to Diyarbakir in the East and down to Bodrum in the South. Through all this one of the more impressive sites was the blue hot water spring terraces of Pamukkale (pronounced Pa-moo-ka-le) in Denizli Province, in the south western part of the country. The brochures showed tourists flocking to bathe in the small pools that cascaded down the slope of a landscape that resembled a snow field—and this in the middle of July. These calcium carbonate deposits are what inspired the Romans to name... (more)

Rising Above it All in Cappadocia

By Steve Gillick, published on Jul 25, 2012

It was Sunday morning and we were in the town of Urgup, in Cappadocia Turkey. After a 10 hour direct flight from Toronto, we made a brief touch down in Istanbul on the Friday night, enough time to throw our bags in our room, check out the pedestrian mall by Taksim Square, enjoy a great meal at Haci-Baba Restaurant, have the hotel fix our air conditioning at 2:00 am, and even manage a few hours of sleep. By 5:15 am, we were in a taxi headed back to the airport for the 70 minute flight to Keyseri airport, about 45 minutes from the Cappadocia area.Saturday was spent touring some less touristy areas... (more)

Top 5 Reasons Why Birthdays Are Awesome - Especially Mine!

By Felicia Stevenson, published on Oct 25, 2011

Reason #1

You get to be King/Queen for the day. Even though I will be 33 this year, my mother still makes me ANY meal of my choosing. I usually ask for home-made egg rolls or a turkey dinner. My mom's home-made egg rolls are the best damn egg rolls I've ever tasted, hands down. I'm actually starting to drool as I think of them... Moooom, I think I know what I want for dinner this year!

Reason # 2

People are nice to you and show you love all day long, every where you go. Granted, of course, that they know it's your birthday, but I've found that wearing an "it's my birthday"... (more)

Gobble Gobble

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 28, 2010

Thanksgiving is almost upon us and that means a few things to most Americans. Family, turkey, and football. A set of 3 games are on tap for Thanksgiving Day viewing this year.

First up, the Patriots travel to the Lions to kick off turkey day football. The Lions have had quite the time of it this year with some questionable calls and their quarterback Stafford being injured for a big part of the season. They are a much better team than people give them credit, but they are not going to beat the Patriots. New England is getting things together and are starting to work on all sides... (more)
