By Ian In standard25th April, 2011

The 44th edition of the Toronto Beaches Lions Club Easter Parade was held yesterday. The parade was full of happy, hoppy people including this year’s parade Grand Marshal, Heather Moyse; who won Canada’s first ever women’s gold medal in bobsled at the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The good weather is here and people are dressing in more colourful and bright clothing. A walk along Queen’s Quay is just as colourful as walking along Queen Street East. As I walked around Harbourfront at lunch Thursday, I noticed several people not wearing jackets. As I walked, I too felt that I should have

Its Been a Real Charlie Sheen Weekend

By Office Space Toronto In standard17th April, 2011

It began on Friday when I was told about Charlie Sheens tweets, it seems that he was tweeting about walking from his hotel (The Ritz Carlton, Toronto) to his show venue Massey Hall to raise awareness for Bi Polar disorders. I decided to get my camera ready and head down early to get a good

The Charlie Sheen in Toronto Show Has Mixed Reviews

By Office Space Toronto In standard15th April, 2011

I was not able to get tickets to either of the sold out shows with Charlie Sheen and Russel Peters. I did read some good reviews of Charlie Sheen’s Toronto show and some not so good reviews from the media, but was more interested in the reviews of people who attended. I finally found some

The Political Games of Elections

By Office Space Toronto In standard13th April, 2011

On Monday when I left my house to take the bus (yes the bus) to my downtown Toronto office space, my street was full of different coloured election signs.  There were red signs, blue signs and green signs, but funny no orange signs. Then when I went to catch the bus on Tuesday to again

What a Week Glad its Monday

By Office Space Toronto In standard11th April, 2011

I think I may have had one of the worse weeks last week. I never thought I would look forward to a Monday. The week began with dealing with a plumber fixing the heating pipe leak, then waiting for the flooring guy to fix the damaged Parquet flooring who could not seal and finish the floor

Spring is Trying Very Hard to Get Here

By Ian In standard2nd April, 2011

Over the past few weeks we have had some good weather days, only to be followed by days where winter resurfaces. As I was walking from an appointment on Front Street back to my downtown Toronto office space, I noticed the dangerous evidence of fluctuating temperatures on the ceiling of the railway underpass on Yonge

The Missing Programmer

By Ian In standard26th March, 2011

As many of my friends and family know, I develop websites and help plan companies online success. Most also know that I do not do all the back end programming myself. My skill set is planning and developing a team the fits each individual project, because different projects require different sets of skills and expertise. This week

The 24-7 Reality of Being Self Employed

By Ian In standard21st March, 2011

It is late Sunday night and I am out at a dinner with friends celebrating a special occasion when I got a call from a client. It seems that had accidently deleted a file containing some photos I took for them, and they needed to send the photo to their printer by 2:30 AM in

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

By Office Space Toronto In standard17th March, 2011

I was walking to my downtown Toronto office space on Tuesday after a morning meeting near the St. Lawrence Market.  As I walked along the Esplanade, I noticed workers setting up the patio barriers around Fionn McCools and the Esplanade Beer Market. I thought this was kind of odd that bars were setting up their
