    She sings it in French just so Frank and Denis will understand. There’s also a bit of confusion in the eyes of the furry soprano because there’s supposed to be a shadow somewhere that will indicate if spring has indeed … Continue reading →
  • She’s Sung
    No one has accused the CIBC of not pushing conditions right to the limit. We’ve had some fabulous sails over the years on super marginal conditions. But today the limit pushed back. The plate took a hit from the sun … Continue reading →
