Boutique Bar on Church Street, Toronto.

This past Wednesday Robin Quivers — Howard Stern’s sidekick for over 30 years — had an operation to remove a tumour pressing on her bladder. It was the first show she has ever missed, and here Howard speaks for the first time, on how much she means to him.
I hope she gets better.
Toronto’s landscape gardeners do a phenomenal job keeping St. James Park beautiful all year round.
The final season of my favourite show — can’t wait!
Maude enjoyed a physically exhausting weekend at the cottage and has been sleeping ever since. Hopefully she’s lost a few pounds. It’ll make the vet happy.
The Saucy Willow Inn is located in the township of Coboconk, Ontario, just two hours north of Toronto. The Inn was built in 1878 as a family home for Adam Henry Carl, and is called “The Lodge” by most locals because it was once known as Lakewood Lodge. The stately Victorian house offers accommodation as a bed and breakfast year round, with separate cottages available during the spring, summer and early fall.
We recently took a tour of the facilities and I can tell you that the home was breathtakingly beautiful. If you’re ever in the area for a couple of days, and are looking for a place to stay, I recommend that you book accommodations at the Saucy Willow Inn. The staff was friendly and courteous, and are deeply proud of the rich history of the house and surrounding area.
I’m in heat. No really. There are so many beautiful men walking through the streets of Toronto that I can barely contain myself. The only way to cool off and to distract myself from perverted thoughts was to make the trip to Coboconk, just outside of Lindsay, Ontario. The heat was brutal, but the scenery was worth it. For those unfamiliar, Coboconk is a community in the city of Kawartha lakes, on the northern tip of Balsam Lake. Coboconk has a rich history amongst the villages of Kawartha Lakes, and has played a prominent role in the logging, limestone, and tourism industries for over 150 years. Of course, the main attraction is Canada’s smallest jail. Go figure.
I can’t help but look around this green earth and thank heavens I’m alive. The world is a magnificently beautiful creature, one that demands attention and respect. This weekend we drove to Balsam Lake and spent quality time with the McCallum’s. The weather was excruciatingly beautiful without a cloud in the sky. A couple of mornings I awoke before the rest of the crew and captured some photographs to document the physical evidence of the tremendous radiance of the Balsam landscape. Good company never hurts, so Lisa accompanied us and entertained with her warm sense of humour. With good food, great conversation and amazing temperatures, I can confidently say we all had an experience to remember.
