Rick Campanelli Needs You

power of 2

Rick Campanelli, the host of Canada's daily show Entertainment Tonight is taking a very big risk this Holiday season. Rick has been a long time supporter of Athletes for Africa, a Toronto based grassroots organization that is responsible for Guluwalk and other fund raising initiatives that supports young people in Africa by using the power and profile of sports. As well as putting in stellar performances in the last two Athletes for Africa, Rock the Pitch soccer tournaments , he hosted this years Guluwalk Gala, and most impressively, went to northern Uganda this summer where he produced a series of mini documentaries about the youth in that most unfortunate part of the world. Stay tuned for those.

The big risk?  He has made an on-air wager with his co-host Cheryl Hickey. Should he lose this wager, Cheryl will have the (pleasure?????) of waxing his legs on air - and I've seen them, it won't be an easy task. There is a way that we can all pitch in to prevent this travesty from taking place and preventing the most traumatic event in televised history since Janet Jackson's infamous nipple slip.

Rick and Cheryl are competing to raise funds for their favourite causes. Cheryl is supporting the Sickkids foundation, a very worthy cause, while Rick is raising funds for Athletes for Africa.

There's a huge upside if Rick wins this friendly competition. Cheryl has agreed to Dance with the Toronto Raptor's Dance Pak (no, I didn't misspell that - it's missing a "c") on December 22 during the Raptor's game against the Detroit Pistons.  This is something that most of the civilized world would like to see, much more so than Rick Campanelli getting his legs waxed. Much, much more so.

Just click the picture above and go to the Power of 2 webpage. You can make a small donation to help keep Rick in the lead and protect the integrity of Canadian television. Rick Campanelli needs you!!!

Sometimes You're Just Not Cut Out For A Certain Job

Sometimes life can have a very cruel way of telling us that there are certain jobs that we are just not cut out for. I can think of a few that I'm not terribly good at. Fortunately for me, Real Estate is a very big umbrella, and there are a… more

I was showing a client some houses the other day. We came across one house that had security bars on the windows and a stick that jammed the back door shut. The client asked whether we were in a bad neighbourhood. We weren't really, the… more

Casu Marzu. Who wants some?

I had to secure another bank property on Saturday. It wasn't really a big deal, as the people had left quite a while ago, and had left the house in a relatively clean state. It was a drama-free operation. From what I could gather though, the power… more

I was driving along a rural stretch of road the other day. There were fields on either side and the snow was blowing all around. I wouldn't quite say it was a "whiteout" condition, but it was fairly close. Can you spot the… more
