Chatting with Casey 0015 — I’m Where I Need to be Right Now

‘Tis the season for holiday parties, holiday traffic, and a whole gaggle of germs with cold and flu season upon us… just in time for the holidays. With our youngest hit by a pretty nasty cough over the weekend, productivity ground to a halt. You can easily take for granted […]

Insurance Done Right — How to Protect the People You Care About WITHOUT Selling the Farm!

It finally happened, Toronto. We thought we could dodge it and the good times would last forever. People strolled around in the middle of December with their coats wide open, not caring that the calendar marked toboggan season. I saw people still mowing their lawns in late November—a time […]

The 2017 100 Wrap-Up — 31 Successes.

Several weeks, a few dozen photos and four thousand words later, we’ve finally made it—the Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad 2017 wrap-up, filled with stories aplenty of 365 days spent in my not-so-orthodox life. After wrapping the year up on a quiet note (because two sick children under five will do […]

The Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad Christmas Gift Guide… for Grown-Ups!

Grown-ups need love, too! As we close in on Christmas, it becomes blindingly obvious there’re two classes of shoppers during the holiday season—the ones who know exactly what they’re getting for every person on their list… and the ones who keep it all ’til the last minute, ‘cuz they’ve […]

A DAD ABROAD — It’s a Ford. #FordSummer. (Checking out Ford Canada’s SUVs in Muskoka!)

If I learned anything from a recent trip to the Muskokas, it’s that Ford is great at making SUVs! Sure, the Sport/Suburban Utility Vehicle might not be everyone’s first choice when shopping for a new ride, but if they’re not, they are missing out! SUVs are growing in popularity worldwide as drivers […]

Getting Your Grown Self On with Sheets from Merchant Sons!

Part of being a grown-up is investing in things that help you lead a better life. Better food that keeps you healthy. Better clothes lasting more than a few washes. But it also means investing in things we often don’t think about. Getting better appliances to save you time and effort. Better tools […]

A DAD ABROAD — Make Vacay Matter More with Stays at Sherkston Shores!

As a family influencer, the issue I have with a number of my pitches is that they require time away from my family! It sounds nice in theory to explore different cities and celebrate in festivals across the globe, but taking care of two boys under four as a solo parent ain’t […]

Summer is Coming — Refresh Yourself with The Brew Box Co. + the Nelson 2016 Sauvignon Blanc!

“Summer is comin’, know you could feel it…” — Drake, “Connect”, Nothing was the Same (2013) With temperatures in the 20s all week, I think we can finally say that summer’s on its way, and it’s high time Toronto get ready! We only get a few months of this sunshine […]

Welcome to Social Work Week — Celebrating Our Social Workers with the Ontario Association of Social Workers!

When you think of social workers, what exactly comes to mind? Call it the privilege of hailing from a fairly well-adjusted nuclear family, but I think social workers get a bad rap. Yes, they remove children from dangerous household situations when deemed necessary (for reference, the Ontario Association of […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — Vol. 2 #15, Lian “Reese” Wright, Blogger, Reese Speaks

One point I’ve made a number of times while running this year’s Tales from the 2.9 is that I don’t wake up each morning with my Blackness at the forefront of my mind. Am I aware of it? Obviously—it’s an integral part of my identity of the beliefs, behaviours […]
