Biking for a Cause

Posted by Bishin on May 4, 2013 in Lesley's Blog, Montreal |

My amazing father is doing the CIBC 401 Bike Challenge to honour my late grandmother Gladys and her courageous 17 year cancer battle. He’ll be cycling 580 km over 2 days – from Toronto’s Sick Kids Hospital to the Montreal Children’s Hospital – to raise money for kids fighting the disease. The CIBC 401 Bike […]

Perspective

Posted by Bishin on January 1, 2013 in Lesley's Blog, Montreal |

Yikes, you don’t want to be this car’s owner; he wasn’t lucky enough to get out before the snow removal trucks came by and completely packed him in. As bad as your snow day (or, any day, for that matter!) is, just remind yourself it’s better than this… After all, life’s all about perspective…

Earth to Canadians and Americans living on the East Coast: IT SNOWS EVERY WINTER!

Posted by Bishin on February 3, 2011 in Lesley's Blog, Montreal, News & Events, Real Life, Video |

I’m just going to say it, I think the entire East coast is nuts. How is it that every winter there’s some sort of panic when more than 1 cm of snow falls? People on the news are acting like it’s armageddon. They won’t leave their homes, schools are closed, businesses are closed… Earth to […]

Sisters

Posted by Bishin on October 20, 2010 in Family & Friends, Lesley's Blog, Montreal, News & Events, Real Life, Relationships |

It’s been a week since my sister’s wedding, which was beautiful – as was she – and I’m finally beginning to decompress. As the Maid of Honour (MOH), I was asked to give a speech. You’d think this would be an easy task. After all, I’m a writer, and over the years I’ve written speeches […]

This Saturday, March 27, 2010, at 9pm, the Israel Cancer Research Fund is honouring the life of Sarah “Suri” Gonshor at it’s 7th annual new leadership event, aptly titled Suri’s Soiree. This is an occasion which is very close to my heart, not only because the funds go towards eradicating cancer, but because it is […]

Palmer’s Snowboots dance

Posted by Bishin on January 28, 2010 in Lesley's Blog, Montreal, Puppy Love |

When it gets very cold, Palmer needs to wear little boots to go outside (otherwise he refuses to walk, and stands with one leg in the air like a tripod). He loves the boots once he’s outside, but everytime we put them on, this is what happens:

It’s been a Lung week…

Posted by Bishin on November 23, 2009 in Lesley's Blog, Marketing, Montreal, Real Life |

Well, it’s been a rather long, or should I say “lung” week. Bad pun. I’ll blame the meds. I got my H1N1 shot early because I’m asthmatic, which is the good news. As with every shot, there’s always the chance of some side effects. Well, I was one of the lucky ones who got some […]

Remembering Sheila Finestone

Posted by Bishin on June 9, 2009 in Family & Friends, Lesley's Blog, Montreal, Politics, Real Life |
sheila finestone

Sheila Finestone, the Former Liberal Senator and Member of Parliament has passed away. It seems so odd to me that she’s died. She was 82, but her own mother, Minnie, only died within the past decade, giving me the impression that Sheila would live forever. It wasn’t just her mother, either. Sheila was a firecracker, […]

Having moved to Quebec from Ireland four years ago, he shares his anecdotes about learning to embrace winter, and offers tips for reaching your “frigid Zen.” It’s -21°C in Montreal with the windchill factor today, so I’ve been inspired to […]
