Synopsis: Leafs Nation will love this book. What do you think would happen if the Leafs did not have a clean, clear, and safe sheet of ice to play on every night they play a game at the Scotiabank Arena? It could be very disastrous for them. If it's not cleaned properly, things like chips off a wooden stick, or transparent tape could go unnoticed by our Leafs players until it's too late. Skating on such small pieces of debris can be dangerous to them when they are getting ready to score. Who is the group of people that ensures the ice is cleaned correctly during each commercial break? It's the crew who consider themselves the most important people in the Scotiabank Arena when our beloved Maple Leafs play hockey there. They, of course, are the ice crew - cleaners who do such a great job of making sure the ice is clean, clear, and safe to skate on. Come along and join us, on a whimsical, unbelievable, and fictional account (that might come true!!) as we are swept up in the story of near disasters to total scoring successes of our favorite hockey team. For the long-suffering Leafs’ fans, could there be a silver lining at the end of the story in this book? Look for the names & numbers of the 1967 Stanley Cup winning Maple Leafs players hidden in the pictures! ​Publisher: Kindle Direct Publishing

Synopsis: My book is a collection of events that I experienced as I walked along the Camino trails. First of all, it's about the relationships that were developed along the trail and many of the personal experiences that people shared with me as we were strolling along together on the Camino. Secondly, I've included some of the legends and stories that have grown up around the different villages and areas over the many years of pilgrimage. Finally, I've written down some of my musings that came to mind in moments of solitary meditation after an encounter with some interesting fellow pilgrim or it may have been when I was just communing with Mother Nature,decked out in her finest array. As an extra, in the book, I have included our little adventures that my wife, Lyla, and I may have taken before we started hiking or at the end of each hiking journey.
