B-b-b-b-b-asketball…….gimme the ball and I’m gonna dunk it!

Yes sir, it’s that time of year again. Where it’s considered okay to ignore all life’s responsibilities and watch 12 hours of hoops in a day. The picks are in, the ball is tipped, and the upsets are happening. March Madness is the best, even in a year where I have watched zero seconds of college basketball. I actually had a stronger opinion on who will win the women’s tourney, than the men. Spoiler alert, it will be South Carolina.

On the men’s side, there are a lot of the usual suspects, but other than Zach Edey at Purdue, I don’t know any of the players. Does it matter? Not really?

Exploring family-friendly activities in Parkdale

Can you believe we are coming up on 8 years of living in Parkdale? It’s crazy how time flies when you are having fun.

For those that don’t know, Parkdale is a neighbourhood in the west end of Toronto and is one of the oldest parts of the city.

This west-end neighbourhood that we call home, boasts a rich immigrant history, with waves of Polish, Afro-Caribbean, Filipino, and Vietnamese immigrants have called it home. Today, Parkdale hosts one of North America’s largest Tibetan expat communities—and if you walk around, has the restaurants to prove it.

Many years ago, Parkdale was a part of the city I rode my bike through as quickly as I could on my way to work. It did not have a great rep. Funny enough, many years later it is where I ended up living. And I am very happy it worked out that way.

Today I wanted to quickly list some family-friendly activities in Parkdale. Whether you have little kids, big kids, or no kids, I think they all work.

Revisting the ‘summer of shame’

Have you seen the popular trend on TikTok of people mostly in their 20s posting videos of their daily boring lives? You know, the 5-9 after a 9-5 type POV videos. They have figured out a way to monetize having what most of us call a normal life. Spoiler alert, getting up, going to work, coming home, and making dinner is what most of us do.

It’s crazy that there are so many people who love to watch these videos, comment on them, and live inside some giant virtual warm hug where it’s okay to feel good about being normal.
