Currie's Corner, Nostalgia Cafe

Currie’s Corner 616,  April 19th 2018 I don’t go to the movies very often any more. There just doesn’t seem to be that many pictures that I really want to see, and in the immortal words of the late Robert Mitchum “Where would I park?” Sitting in the dark watching larger than life moving images on a screen still remains … Read More

Currie’s Corner 615 ,  April 19th 2018 Canada has been a country for more than 150 years, but right now there are a number of battles going on between provinces that really make you wonder if Confederation might just be a phase we’ve been going through. In this dissertation I was planning to look at how western provinces are preparing … Read More

Currie’s Corner 614 ,  April 12th 2018 Over the course of my more than 46 years in the news business I have had to tell a lot of truly horrible heart-breaking stories. I long ago reluctantly accepted the notion that we are mostly in the bad news business. It’s no wonder that so many of our consumers don’t like what … Read More

Currie's Corner, Nostalgia Cafe

Currie’s Corner 613 ,  April 12th 2018 Mr. Zuckerberg went to Washington this week, and the question that kept running through my head was “Is he doing anything that is harmful to me personally?” As a semi-retired 70 year old, I don’t buy a lot of stuff. I don’t see myself as having any personal ‘data’ that is of value … Read More

Currie's Corner, Nostalgia Cafe

Currie’s Corner 612 ,  April 5th 2018  The fantasy of many Canadian hockey fans right now has to be the wish for the impossible to happen, a best of seven Stanley Cup final series, early in the football season, between the Winnipeg Jets and the Toronto Maple Leafs. I won’t pursue that far-fetched scenario any further right now, but it … Read More

Currie's Corner, Nostalgia Cafe

Currie’s Corner 611 ,  April 5th 2018  Regular readers and listeners will know that I have decidedly mixed feelings about ‘selfie boy’, my pet name for Canada’s 23rd Prime Minister. Since we’re trying to bring on the warmth of spring, I will stick to the positive. He made a very good choice when he installed Chrystia Freeland as Foreign Affairs … Read More

Currie's Corner, Nostalgia Cafe

Currie’s Corner 610 , March 29th 2018  Hard to believe but the ‘Boys of Summer’ are back, dodging through the Easter Eggs. And how sad it was on opening day to hear the news that Le Grand Orange had died, a few days shy of his 74th birthday. Daniel Joseph Staub, known to baseball fans in five different cities as … Read More

Currie's Corner, Nostalgia Cafe

Currie’s Corner 609 –  March 29, 2018 Easter is a time when we all hope that peace and kindness will prevail, but it seldom seems to work out that way. Consider some of the history. It was on Easter Sunday 1917 that more Canadians were killed at Vimy Ridge in France than in any other battle in any of the … Read More
