Here we'll focus on life in the Ottawa Valley - and we'll do it with a sense of humour.
Valley folk are proud of where they call home. They work hard, play hard, love their weekends and their toys.
AND they love to laugh. Even at themselves.
Enjoy this little slice of Valley life. through the eyes of a true Valley boy.

From the cool files: Todd is an inspiration to us all

How cool is this?
Todd Nicholson, a Kinburn boy and Arnprior District High School grad, just competed for Team Canada's men's sledge hockey squad in the Paralympic Winter Games for the fifth time.
If that isn't cool enough, he had air time on CTV, TSN, and had his photo in Sports Illustrated a few weeks back. He's carried the Canadian flag in the opening ceremonies, has worn the captain's "C" on his chest and has a trophy case full of medals and awards.
And he's now the proud papa of twins.
Next, he's going to be on a segment of the Rick Mercer report this week.
There will be more on Todd in upcoming blogs.
But for now, check this out:
This man is an inspiration and I'm proud to call him my friend.
For a great blog on the Paralympic experience this year, check this out:
A superb job by Todd's brother Gordie and his wife Jenn who kept everyone in the Valley up to speed on the Games in Vancouver.
