This is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada.  Unlike Thanksgiving Day in the United States, Canadian Thanksgiving does not usher in the Christmas season.  It is celebrated on the second Monday in October.

As a Thanksgiving gift to readers of Number 16, I have written a short story. To read the story, just click on the tab above, the one that reads "Fiction." I hope you enjoy it because I have written it in appreciation of you.


Today’s date is special. It is the tenth day of the tenth month of 2010. That means it is 10/10/10.  Another century will pass before 10/10/10 comes up again – October 10, 2110.


It was a good night for Toronto sports fans. Both the Leafs and Argonauts came up winners


The Toronto Argonauts are back on the right track as they battle for a playoff spot in the East Division. Last night they defeated the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina by a score of 24-19. The Green Riders had already clinched a playoff spot in the West Division, but the Argos spoiled their attempt to clinch a home playoff game.


The Toronto Maple Leafs won their second straight game of this young NHL season. They outscored and outplayed the Ottawa Senators 5-1 at the Air Canada Centre. That’s a good start to the season, but Leaf fans shouldn’t get too excited yet.

Congratulations to the Vancouver Canucks for celebrating their 40th year in the National Hockey League.


The New York Yankees have eliminated the Minnesota Twins from postseason play,  The Bronx Bombers won yesterday’s game by a score of 6-1 and swept their series with the Twins in three games straight. The Yankees advance to the American League Division Championship. I’m hoping they won’t advance any further.
