The Christmas Story

The Gospel according to Luke (Luke 2:1-20) About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire. This was the first census when Quirinius was the governor of Syria.

Winning Ways

They said I was too small, that I didn't have the strength, that I wouldn't cut it. It has been tough. Sometimes I still feel that I don't have the height or strength to go out and compete against the bigger guys.

They call the winning goal I scored in the last game of the 1972 Canada/Russia hockey series 'The Goal of the Century.' I still get a warm feeling when I think about it. Fear is one of the best motivators, and I was very afraid that I would be part of the team that lost to the Russians. Canada is... >Read More



Filling the Void

My military career was off to a great start. I was on the college rowing team, had the position of Recruit Section Commander, and was performing well academically.
