Why should we take a look at the past? Well, it helps us understand where we are today. Most of us weren’t even born in the “baby boomer” generation but we certainly are aware of it, hopefully? For me, it’s […]

We were all over this year’s Golden Globes and how the moms really brought the style to the red carpet. The gowns, the hair the makeup! But when the ladies hit the SAG Awards… we were blown away. If risks […]
Over the holiday break I had this conversation with friends and family about what books we’ve read and then which corresponding movies we’ve watched. Are the characters in the movie or show who you’ve imagined? With the highly anticipated 50 […]

Okay I’m going to share a little secret with you all. I secretly love nature shows. Yes, it’s true. I’m glued to the TV during Shark Week, love hearing and learning about wildlife animals, seeing them in their environment. I think it’s cool. One of my favorite shows for my kids when they were little … Continue reading Love Nature Wildlife TV: Celebrate The Beauty and Wonder #checkemout #lovenature →
Science fiction as a genre has the unique ability, though not always exercised, to break free of current social norms and explore entirely new possibilities for humanity. Since the 1960s, feminist science fiction has critiqued traditional gender roles and challenged audiences to imagine alternatives. But despite being a big SF fan, I realized I had never really […]
Rumours buzzed before the Oscar nominations came out and they were all saying the same thing: Jennifer Aniston for her role in CAKE. However, the entertainment world rippled (a bit) when she was snubbed for her role. There’s no doubt […]
Since 1992, MTV has held its own Movie Awards. The categories are fan-voted, and less stodgy than the Oscars, with awards for things like “Best Villain” and “Best Kiss.” From 1992 to 2002, there was an award for Best New Filmmaker.
The post The MTV Movie Award for Best New Filmmaker appeared first on Trivia Books and Facts | Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader.
I don’t know how you feel about your high school experience, but you couldn’t pay me enough to repeat mine. Don’t get me wrong: it wasn’t horribly traumatic or anything (and it’s been a long time since I’ve had one […]

Today is a terrible day for gender equity in sports. What it looks like is either continued sexism, or increased anti-feminist backlash against women who have been asserting their human rights to safety and dignity around the world. Female World Cup soccer players have to play on plastic artificial turf while the men have played … Continue reading MORE Sexism Against Female Canadian Athletes! →
One of the books I was most hoping to get my hands on last year was the collected Nelvana of the Northern Lights by IDW Publishing. Still with a lot to learn about the history of comics, I was shocked that Nelvana had not crossed my radar until then. I…
I admit that over the past couple of weeks I committed to giving myself a bit of a breather after the kids went back to school. It’s not that easy but there were things I wanted to take care of. […]
Hannah arrives in Iowa, and that state makes a stellar first impression on our protagonist. First off, she’s able to rent a gorgeous apartment with lots of quirky design features and a ton of space for a reasonable $800 a month.

I am super stoked to watch the premiere of 12 Monkeys tonight on Showcase.

Brr… it’s been an incredibly cold winter and I’m over it already. Thankfully, my family and I are heading south to warmer temperatures, soon. I’m counting down the days—we all are, actually. I need the sun, the warmth, and the sound of the ocean waves waking me up every morning.
Soon, I’ll be testing out their New Year, New You Spa Package: “A special New Year, New you package invites guests to experience a one-hour personal training session to help start their New Year off right, along with a refreshing 80-minute Diplomat Fit Massage and 50-minute Firming Facial. The experience concludes with a shellac manicure and pedicure, leaving guests polished and new.” Um… yes, please. I cannot wait! Read more about the Diplomat Resort and Spa here.
Bal Harbour is my favourite place in Florida and I know this escape will be amazing. After all, it’s down the road from the Bal Harbour Shops and my favorite Italian restaurant—especially for people and celebrity watching—Carpaccio’s! The Ritz-Carlton is a stunning resort for adults and children alike. They even have a Ritz Kids Club, too—the kids learn as they’re kept busy, through four pillars: land, water, environmental responsibility, and culture, and there are other fun and educational activities for the children, too, like a summer reading program, a book and movie library, board games, gaming systems, and more. There is also, of course, plenty to keep adults busy, as well, from lounging around the pool and beach area, to enjoying the fine dining and spa services. The bathrooms at the Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour were voted one of South Florida’s sexiest… don’t you agree?
What you can enjoy while you’re at the Hyatt: Enjoy the spacious guestrooms with private balconies, play 18-holes on any of the four championship Jack Nicklaus designed golf couress, play tennis with certified tennis pros, swim in the 800,000 gallon lagoon-style pool, go on a hike or a family bike ride, enjoy the water slides, or go rock climbing. You can also relax in the Marilyn Monroe spa, go paddleboating, and enjoy the many yummy restaurants.
From Miami to Orlando, these resorts have all you need for the perfect family vacation.
I’m be re-capping my vacation and giving full reviews on each resort upon my return. In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
My son loves to read. He is in grade three and has just started learning a love of books and wonderful tales that can transport him to far away places. That’s why I’m super excited that Netflix is showcasing Literature inspired titles for kids this January.
