Rambo and His Kids

Although we had never met – they were perfect strangers, it hurt to see them there in their temporary shelter.  They weren’t much older than teenagers, and yet, there they were all bundled up under an assortment of mix and match blankets and towels – sleeping on the sidewalk.  Laying beside the young couple on […]

Moonshine in the Maritimes – The Final Chapter

Readers of this blog will remember my original Moonshine in the Maritimes posting from November 8, 2016 –  a blog that was both painful to write and impossible for me to complete a final chapter. But all of that changed this morning, and now my heart is racing, and my legs are shaking, and I can’t […]

It seems this family in Melbourne, Australia were trying to auction their house at a cool […]

Soaring Like An Eagle

Last Wednesday we said our goodbyes to a legendary hero and warrior and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.  I first wrote a blog post about Doug Aikins in February  when he was rushed to the hospital emergency department http://danielstandrews.com/2014/02/21/and-the-gold-medal-goes-to/ .  Joy W. a very close friend of Doug and the owner of the […]
