I was driving the five minutes home from dropping off a friend as I saw several police cars zoom by westbound in front of me—we’re just one street away from the Danforth. I was woefully unaware of what was happening only five minutes away. Unaware, that is until the […]
Casey E. Palmer
Calling the Great White North his home, Casey‘s spent the last few decades in pursuit of creating killer content. From novels as a kid, comics as a teen, to blogs and photos once he could grow a beard, he’ll use whatever’s around him to create amazing stuff.
When he’s not creating, he’s parenting, exploring and trying to make life as awesome as possible for everyone around him.
Because a boring life’s not a life worth living!
So I don’t know about you, but my kids always want to do what I’m doing. They want to drink from my cup, even when it’s the same juice in their cup. They want to dress like I do, going as far as borrowing my security pass from work to pretend they’re […]
It’s when you’re a little kid that Canada’s Wonderland most truly lives up to its name. With a park full of surprises they’ll experience for the very first time, you’ll have them wanting a second visit in no time. Dear Canada’s Wonderland — Hey there, it’s been a while! […]
Score 76 points in Scrabble with “Ophthalmologist” — The Canadian Ophthalmological Society: See the Possibilities
If I asked most of you what an ophthalmologist does, I’d likely see a lot of blank stares. (Some ocular humour for you there!) But you wouldn’t be alone. Despite a family history of glaucoma, it honestly wasn’t clear to me, either. I mean, I know what my optometrist does—I stop in every couple […]
It’s no secret that I’m busy. If I didn’t have Sarah and the kids to keep me grounded, I’d likely spend every waking moment thinking about content, always trying to find the best ways to tell the next story. But with all this thinking going on, people often wonder how I find time for […]
Thirty-five—it doesn’t feel like a big deal, but it sure sounds like one. I’ve made birthdays a bit of a non-event for myself since having kids. It isn’t me being “emo” about it as Sarah surmised last year when she planned out a wonderful surprise dinner with my family, but […]
And then you have the parenting situations that play out in slow motion. Like when your kid’s about to fall and smash their head on something hard. Or when they’re about to break something you can’t afford to replace! But for me, one moment that happened recently was my two-year-old’s ill-timed […]
“Be kind to yourself, Be true to yourself, And always move forward.” — Drekken Pownz, Chatting with Casey, Episode Seven: “SEE Each Other.” When my friend Marie Nicola heard I was doing my podcast, she congratulated me on putting something together with such high production value but thought me nuts […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Mobile Shop . All opinions are 100% mine. Now that I’m a Dad myself, I’ve started seeing fatherhood in a whole new light. Getting the right gift for anyone takes a lot of effort. Handmade stuff is super […]
You’ll never know how messy your home can get until you have little creatures making themselves comfy in every nook and cranny. Some people have pets. Some, small children. But whichever you have, the same thing’s invariably true—thy create a mess wherever they go. Crumbs. Toys. Spills. Stains. It’s a daily […]
