    Drayton Festival Theatre's second offering of their 2016 season is on stage now until July 2. Brighton Beach Memoirs was one of their first shows to be mounted 26 years ago and it is gracing the Drayton Festival Theatre stage once again. Brighton Beach Memoirs has been one of my favourite movies/plays for ...

  • Spirit of the West, a Catholic funeral mass, and waves of grief

    I've been grieving for my mom for about 7 years now. It's a strange thing to be grieving for someone who is still alive. My mom was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's in her late 50s, and the decline has been steady, sometimes subtle and insidious, sometimes drastic and obvious, but ...

  • Chicago Sizzles!

Jodi McFadden and Jayme Armstrong are marvelous as Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart, the merry murderesses, and supported by an incredible cast. Right from the opening I could ...

How do you do sex?

Posted by jackiyo 2 Comments

That was the question that came out of the mouth of my babe today. "How do you do sex?" I paused and responded back with, "What do you think?" His older sister piped up and said, "It's when the penis goes in the vagina." "Oh right," he nods. Then she follows up with, ...
