The arrival of summer brings us many wonderful things. Fresh fruit right from the orchard, days on the golf course with friends, days at the beach and BBQ’s with family. All of these are great and enjoyed by all but there is one thing, one incredibly fun event that anyone can enjoy. I am talking about the Water Fight! Nothing is more fun than ambushing your sibling or parent and soaking them. Below are some simple tips and rules for a Water Fight to ensure fun is had and everyone plays safe.
When I was a young boy (I am NOT going to tell you my age!), staying outside during the summer from 9am until dinnertime at 5pm was the norm. There were all kinds of things us kids would get up to. Water fights, catching bugs, bike rides and other activities dominated our days. There was one activity that my parents always encouraged me to do and that was draw on the driveway with my sidewalk chalk.
Now I’m no artist. I’m serious. I can barely draw a smiley face. As a child though I thought I was the greatest artist that ever lived! Of course my parents encouraged me and praised my exceptional drawing skills. I know now they were of course being polite. I know this because my dad told me the other day I was just awful at drawing. I’m ok with it I swear.
When the Compact Disc, or CD, made its commercial debut on August 17th, 1982, the prevailing thought was this was the format to replace Vinyl. It was smaller, cheaper to produce, and most importantly, was not nearly as fragile as vinyl was. Test after test was completed by various Hi-Fi magazines that showed CD’s had (against the prevailing narrative from Vinyl purists) superior sound quality too.
One of my favourite summer pass times is to BBQ! Whether it is with friends, family or just myself I always enjoy my time in front of the grill. I thought I’d take the time to share one of my favourite BBQ dishes. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
