On Meditation

Many of us believe that meditation is good for us, as the prevalent belief is meditating can clear our minds. Meditation can help to clear our minds, especially when practiced on a regular basis. I strongly believe the first step in meditation is simply to observe what is on our minds. I have heard many times ‘I am unable to meditate, because I have too much going on in my mind’.

I invite you to sit for one to five minutes, breathe and simply notice what is going through your mind. The exercise is even more pleasant when you are outdoors or focusing your eyes on a photo or piece of art (we’ll call it scenery). See if you can focus on your breathing and the scenery. Then simply notice what is crossing your mind without judgement. This is a start to meditation and you most certainly can do it-


The McLobster

Lobster rolls are something I love. I try to get my hands on one whenever possible and I make a great lobster roll myself. Here we are in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland and Prince Charming notices that they are serving a McLobster at McDonalds-we screeched into the McDonalds instantly for the McLobster. We are very pleased to report that the McLobster is a great lobster roll. In fact, it edges out the last lobster roll we had at Rock Lobster in Toronto. The McLobster comes with lobster that has the right blend of mayo, celery, hint of lemon and most importantly, the right ratio of lobster on a slightly sweet toasted roll. Imagine our surprise when a friend told us the McLobster is available in Ontario as well. Try it while you can!

The McLobster was actually quite difficult to obtain here in Toronto. And I must say somehow the one in Newfoundland was a better product.
