Not a Tosser of the Week, brought to you by

For the last couple of weeks I've been running around like crazy! Seriously! None stop, left right and centre! But it's all worth it.

Today I met with the winners for the All I Want for Back to School Shopping Spree and I have to accept that seeing Romel smile and enjoy a day shopping where it was all about him, buying everything that he needed and that he wanted for the new school year was worth every single minute of today.

On Friday I have to be at Staples on #3030 - 32nd Avenue NE for the 4th Annual School Supply Drive and while I'm there giving away free stuff to everyone that stops by and donates some extra school items or a little bit of cash I will be keeping my eyes open for people that are recycling. Remember that it's all about

I've met some really interesting people. Some of them I've spent time with talking with right after we recorded their "on-air break" (Nat and Donna) and some of them I've talked to and had a few laughs (Colin and Joanne) and some of them I've talked to and they had to run back to their own life, but at the end, we all agreed on the same thing, and I'm sure I've said it before, but I only say it again 'cuz it's the truth. Recycling is more than gathering your stuff at home as you use them and taking them to the bottle depot. Recycling goes beyond that. Recycling is doing all of the above and going the extra mile, so, if you are walking on a park, parking lot, street, community event, on your way home, or to work... and If you see a container that is recyclable, pick it up and help it get to the right recycling bin. It really doesn't hurt to take that extra step.

Nat and Donna where helping Nat's Mom to clean her house and they took all of her recyclables over to the bottle depot.

Colin and Joanne where doing some recyclables that they've been saving for a while to help Colin with some of the expenses for his move out to UVic.

David does some recycling up in Airdrie and uses the money to take his little girl out for breakfast after teaching her the importance of recycling.

Terri-Lee and Joanne have been doing recycling for a while now and they have a bank account open for Terri-Lee's daughter and they have been depositing all the money form recycling into that bank account to use as a College Fund.

All these extra steps that people have been taking to make sure all of their recyclable items are in deed recycled and what the money is being used for are creating milestones amongst friends and family that they will cherish for a long time.

Could you be the next nominee???

Not a Tosser of the Week, brought to you by

Oh man, this weather is CRAZY!!!

I usually carry around with me prizing from, but this current weather is making carry twice as many things to surprise people with. But then again, if you don't like the weather in Calgary, wait 10 minutes, you might like it then.

If you are following my postings you can see the Shirts that are giving away... They're cool! And wait to you see the Tuque!

I like it when people tell me their stories as they are. The Truth! Because I like to hear the truth (I can handle the truth!)

Take John for example. I was talking to him while he was getting back to work from his lunch break. We talked for a few minutes and I asked him if he recycled at home. I was pretty happy when he told me that him and his wife recycle everything that is recyclable and they love to use the services of the bottle depot, because, lets be honest here, who doesn't need some extra cash nowadays!?

Now, I've learned that looks can be deceiving. You could be a Construction worker, the manliest of guys, but in the end, we all go back to our wife’s for everything. Even to give the money that we get back from the Bottle Depot services.

Thanks John!

Oh Man, Does it ever feel good to be back in Calgary!

I am sooo happy to be back and to be doing what I do best, have Fun While Working!!!

I have to agree that the scenery in this city gets prettier and prettier every single day! Man I Love this City and I love it's People!

I'm glad to talk to the nominees of this week. Nice people all over the place.

First, LaRiviere Family where visiting Calgary from Devon, AB (293 km – about 2 hours 56 mins according to Google maps) MAN that must've been a nice road trip! This family where recycling even on their time off. Saving all their bottles and recyclables until they find a proper bin to put it in and after talking to Walker he was telling me that they all do recycling in his family and the money they get back from the Bottle Depot gets divided equally with his 2 sisters and him self they also take time to gather milk jugs cus the bottle depot is giving money back for that too. That is dedication to the cause, a cause that at the end is helping us all!

& then Katie, who also in the middle of working on her front yard, was using her recycling bin to deposit her water bottle after she was done using it. Like I said before, it's like a natural instinct here.

I've seen that consequences of what could happen when we don't worry about recycling and toss things out of the window of a moving car, or while enjoying a nice view from the hotel balcony you see on a river that runs through the side of the hotel and a pile of garbage sitting in the water and no one was doing anything about it. That alone, is a sad picture.

thank you all for your efforts.
