    April 26 2018 in Post Categories: A Little Slice of Evan

    Friday April 27th is National Prime Rib Day and we are VERY EXCITED. Years and years ago when my mother, Cathy, was a young lass she told me that her mother would prepare a Prime Rib nearly every Sunday for dinner. As the cost of beef has grown exponentially in the decades since, the king

    March 07 2018 in Post Categories: A Little Slice of Evan

    Evan here….I’ve learned a few things of late that I want to share with you. Firstly, you are never too old to learn. Secondly, don’t mess with your brand. No matter what we might think that it is, it means different things to different folk, so if you move one way or the other, there

  • Rogers Hometown Hockey

    February 28 2018 in Post Categories: A Little Slice of Evan

    Brad here….One of Evan’s favorite pastimes is playing hockey (in fact, he’s on the ice three to four times per week). Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the Rogers Hometown Hockey celebration occurs here in Markham on March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th (the latter being Evan’s birthday). He and his Unionville Men’s Hockey Club buddies will
