Watch “Glass Geek daily vlog” on YouTube

The gentleman in the photo above is Rick Sare. He is a hardworking, fun loving, long distance Trucker, stationed out of Florida. He is also a witty, charming, and very generous, part-time YouTuber. His channel The Glass Geek, can be found here or by clicking the link above his photo.

Rick’s vlog, which comes out regularly on Mondays and Wednesdays, but also various other times of the week, including live-stream Fridays. is very entertaining. It features fun and unusual roadside attractions, visits to theme parks, box openings, and various other points of interest across The American continent.

Rick’s videos are highlighted by his own special charm, personal introspective reflections, witty repartee and self deprecating humour, and feature some beautiful aerial, drone footage, and occasionally some interactive 360 degree videos.

Why am I telling you all this? Mainly because Rick is my favourite YouTuber, and although his small wonderful devoted group of followers are very loyal, I believe he deserves many more viewers/subscribers than he currently has. Rick cares a great deal about his subscribers, he is constantly working to improve his already excellent filmography techniques and toils endlessly to provide entertaining content. He also goes to great pains to respond to your comments.

Besides, he is fun to watch, and I wouldn’t want you all to miss out on it.

Check it out, and let him know Cliff Lewis sent you.

Thanks for reading,

Have a great week, and keep smiling,

Mad Libs for the whole family☺

The kids and I have been having a lot of giggles with this version of Mad Libs. You get the first set of stories for free, but there are many more that can be purchased for a nominal sum.

I found this fun app on the Google play app store, I’m not sure if it is available in IOS for Apple devices, it probably is, but as I am using a Samsung tablet, I am unable to offer that link. Sorry☺

Great fun and a terrific vocabulary builder for developing minds.☺

I just completed a Mad Libs story with the new app. Get in on it at! #madlibs

100 Things Canucks fans should know and do before they die. A review

100 Things Canucks Fans Should Know  Do Before They Die

I was given an autographed copy of this excellent book for Christmas. This is my, very, brief review.

100 Things Canucks Fans Should Know Do Before They Die by Thomas Drance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is recommended reading, not just for true blue Canucks fans, but Hockey fans in general. It documents the journey from early, pre-expansion era days, to glory days and near misses. It doesn’t skirt through the trials, tribulations and failings as much as it weaves a pathway through heartbreaks and dawning mediocrity and on to the heady euphoria of near success. It was fun to revisit so many old friends and personalities who had a part in the birth and/or building of my favourite Hockey franchise. This Is a fascinating story told in a very entertaining style. I couldn’t put it down.
I have followed the team from the beginning and am a life-long fan. I have struggled through the doldrums and rejoiced in the good times, and this book has been a great way to relive, and refresh some old memories.

Why Am I?

Trying to come to grips with the sense of sadness, loss, confusion, frustration, angst, and oblivion, that my Father and the millions of others, who suffer with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of Dementia, live with every day.

Staring into the emptiness
Trying to understand
Nothing making sense
Why am I?

Memories lost
So tired, So alone
In a world full of strangers
Why am I?

People seem to know me
Think they understand
Can’t see the real me
Why am I?

So angry, so lost
Where has my life gone?.
Help me, help me, help me!!
Why am I…
