I have spent hours today contemplating whether to write a blog about this amazing man who passed away yesterday. There are literally millions of social media posts today from Oprah and Tony Robbins to nobody famous all around the planet. He was a celebrity. But this celebrity is not like so many shallow beings..
It was subtle. I noticed it before the commentators did and I was certain they missed it, but retired pro-golfer and fine announcer for in this case, CBS-TV, Nick Faldo saw it too. On the 17th hole of the final round of the Professional Golf Association Championship in at Whistling Straits in Kenosha, Wisonsin, a..
Imagine the irony for me. I was born without arms due to the morning sickness medication, “Thalidomide” and Dr. Frances Kelsey refused to approve the drug for use in the United States in the early 1960’s preventing the potential birth of literally hundreds of thousands of birth defects in the U.S.A.! Irony for..
In the movie, “The Hunger Games”, a large group of very young people are let lose in the woods and the goal is to kill everyone and be the last one standing. Welcome to the 2015 Canadian Federal Election Campaign. I am not a “political” speaker as being politically correct on stage is paramount and..
If you follow my blogs at all you probably know I don’t do too many. I certainly don’t focus on them in the Summer as I am trying to focus on some time off at our cottage. I excel at doing nothing. Yet, I had a nice surprise at a recent event where I was..

This blogs a no-brainer. My Dad’s name was John Vernon Law but everyone called him Jack. As I write this, Darlene and I are at our cottage on Crystal Lake, Saskatchewan. It’s a place that makes my heart sing at the simple memory of my childhoods spent here in the 1960’s and ’70’s and back..
We are so excited to introduce our new website. There really wasn’t anything “wrong” with the old one except it was…old! I’m not old, although 55th birthday approaching, but in December 2014, a “young” man pointed out you couldn’t access alvinlaw.com on mobile devices and apparently, they are the tool of choice for the majority..
I made a promise to myself in the past year to try not to sound so “negative” in my blogs. I have struggled a bit. Understand, I am not a cynic by nature. Do I have bad days? Of course. But I truly believe in the power of positivity because that power transformed the life..
There are times when I see a blog post like this as completely predictable yet as we head up to the annual homage to Mothers, I decided to be predictable…and perhaps not so much, just like me! This is a big subject. I will get to some of the more unpredictable observations in a bit..
