Seize the moment with Dan Aykroyd's National Caesar Day contest - Toronto Sun

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Crystal Head vodka, a unique brand manufactured in Newfoundland and Labrador that is one of the purest, made with “sweet peaches and cream corn grown in Chatham-Kent, Ont.,” and the pristine iceberg waters off Newfoundland and Labrador. The vodka is bottled in the iconic smiling glass skull, a vodka he founded with artist John Alexander back in 2007.“Crystal Head doesn’t have any additives, like glycerol, sugar or citrus oil. This is a very pure manufactured fluid, and I know bartenders around the world love it because it’s a blank canvas to which they add their own signature…gawd, I’d like to get a bottle into the hands of (actor) Jennifer Lawrence, given she’s a purist when it comes to enjoying a vodka martini,” added AykroydAykroyd is also involved with Caesar Day (which falls on May 17 this year) and a party being planned with a group of his buddies – that you can get invited to. “When I learned Canadians consumed more than 407 million Caesars last year alone and that a group of Caesar-loving Canadians created a day just to celebrate Canada’s Cocktail – I knew I wanted to be a part of it,” said Aykroyd.Now in its fourth year, the legendary actor is joining the team to create the official Caesar of 2018, which he calls the “The Hot Head Caesar,” a zesty take on the classic. Aykroyd blends fresh garlic, lime juice and Sriracha sauce with his own Crystal Head vodka and Mott’s Clamato – but what’s missing is the garnish. And that’s where you come in.Aykroyd is giving Canadians a chance to create a garnish worthy enough for his Caesar – and if you win, you get to enjoy the Caesar in person in Toronto with Aykroyd and his friends, on National Caesar Day, no less. Canadians from coast to coast can enter until May 2 – and yes, Dan will be judging – with the winner announced May 7.“A Caesar this great deserves something more inspired than a celery stalk,” said Aykroyd of his Hot Head Caesar. “I’ve seen Canadians create some spectacular garnishes over the years, so I want their help to choose the best one for my Caesar.”Personally, I’d go with something a little spooky – like a ghost pepper garnish. But that’s just me, after chatting with Dan.Check out GarnishDansCaesar.ca for more details. And may the best garnish win.CommentsShare your thoughtsDan Aykroyd Ghostbusters Let's block ads!

Cemetery out, 'water burial' in - The Sudbury Star

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

A Chatham-Kent funeral home is teaming up with a new charter service to offer water burials.Nathan McKinlay, managing funeral director at McKinlay Funeral Homes Ltd. said, “there are a number of families who want options outside of the cemetery.”He said McKinlay Funeral Homes has been in conversations with certified skipper Marc Lesperance, who has recently launched Perpetual Waters Charter Service. It provides water burials.“We offer this service where we can take them, and some family members out, and just have a nice, quiet meaningful time and have the cremated remains scattered properly,” McKinlay said.The funeral home recently announced the service on its Facebook page, which attracted a lot of attention, including many positive responses.“Honestly, what it has been – what I found on Facebook in particular – is an education piece for people,” McKinlay said. “A lot of people didn't think it was legal.”He said there's a been a change in legislation a few years ago that allows cremated...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
