Pan Am a Hamilton success

Were the Pan Am games a success?

I guess it depends on who you ask?

From HOV lanes that amplified Southern Ontario’s traffic hell, to poor attendance, there were certainly areas that could have been better.

But there was also lots to be proud of including a record breaking performance by our athletes and the welcome we gave those from around the world.

When it came to festivities, including those on the closing weekend, Hamilton looked great and has lots to be proud of.

We have proven we can ride shot gun with the best when it comes to hosting a world class event.

We have shown off the new Hamilton, not only to the rest of Canada, but the world.

As we look back on this event I believe it was a win for Hamilton.

Even if it was built in the same old (bad location) they were trying to get out of for decades, at the very least, we did get a brand new stadium out of the deal.

Lock your doors and beware of naked swimmers

You know it must be summer when we’re hearing stories of people swimming naked in other people’s pools.

When I was young, as long as you didn’t pee, it was okay.

Seems an Uxbridge woman returned home to find out a neighbour had seen a naked man skinny dipping in her pool in middle of the afternoon.

This could be the start of a steamy fantasy for some but turned out to be quite the opposite.

The 18 year old entered the house, used the shower, ate her food, went for a swim, and then ransacked the bedroom.

He took off when she came home.

“It was a very upsetting event to occur, to arrive home to find a male who’s wearing no clothes in the house,” said the Sgt.

The police K-9 unit found him near a pond, clearly he has a love of water.

And the drugs and alcohol that played a role in the break in.

Police say keep your doors, and pool gate locked!

Isn't bigger better???

I remembering opening a bag of cookies a few years ago and thinking, didn’t there used to be 5 rows of cookies in a package?

I know as a kid everything seemed bigger (like snow banks and getting in trouble) but I swear you used to get more cookies per pack.

And they were bigger too.

Now Oreo has come out with a new thinner model called Oreo thins.

No they are not lo-cal, just thinner.

The manufacturer says they were designed to woo back China’s finicky cookie eater and not as a diet snack.

When they sold $40 million, they took it worldwide, or thin.

They were not meant to be pulled apart or dunked and if the thinner name appeals to those who want less of a snack, so be it.

Thinner to me does not mean lo-cal, thinner to me means you must eat twice as many per glass of milk.

Four times if you’re a double stuffer!
