Brian Stemmle - not exactly a household name in Canada, but perhaps should be.

Both Brian and his sister Karen were Olympic Downhill skiers.  Went to high school with both of them.

Well Thisbe, if we're gonna go down that road, Gord Downie was my sailing mate for two summers at KYC's Junior Squadron!  Bet that makes basketboy drool...

Cheers, eh?!

My wife was in the same grade in High School as Pam Anderson. She played volleyball with her.

Apparently her breasts increased after high school.

Pam sent my wife a copy of her first Playboy issue.

Like most women who opt for lots of work, Pam looked much better before than after.

Before:

After (granted, some years had passed):

We moved on to "Brush with Greatness" 

My wife and I were at a Stein Festival, a benefit to help save the Stein Valley in BC. Lots of big name Canadian performers. Thousands of people and lots of port-a-potties pf course.

It was evening and she is one Port-a-Potties. Guy in the adjoining was was Ed Robertson of Bare Naked Ladies, who were very big at the time. He was singing "If I had a Million Dollars" - but changing the lyrics to a extra silly new versions. He cracking himself up and giggling as he did so.

She came back and found me and said "You'll never guess who I was peeing beside"

In that case - my wife went to the same high school as Bryan Adams - a few years earlier though.

My son taught Taekwondo to Colin James kids.

Ian Tracey lived at the end of our street - we got to know him quite well. Very nice guy as well as a vastly underrated actor due to staying here.

a buddy of mine worked set up on Bryan adams tours for 25 years, retired last year.

 

James is a great guitar player.  I liked the big band stuff, really great in a festival venue.

Don’t.call.me.babe! At least Ms Anderson has a sense of humor about herself.

What impressed me about CONNECTED is that Ms Anderson really kind of let herself go, it was not flattering or cheesy.
