    I'm so glad you interviewed Gary Beacom. He's a long time favorite of mine. That photo of him standing on his head (no hands) on the ice is eye popping, too.

    Thanks for the article on Kira Ivonova.
    It's such a pity that, when she is remembered now, it's for the tragedy which surrounded her; rather than for her skating,

    Thanks for this! It was a needed break from Senate scandal and Rob Ford scandals. I was also pleased to find the Gary Beacom piece as he has always been a favourite. You do manage to find the most interesting things. Keep up the good work!

    skatesindreams - You're so welcome. I completely agree that it's very sad that Kira's remembered for the tragedy in her life moreso than her skating. I don't think a lot of people really knew about the scope of the hardship she faced in her life and I was completely heartbroken for her researching and writing about her story.

    Scrufflet - Glad you enjoyed the Sing Along and are enjoying the blog! I'm trying to go in a different direction than most and have been having an absolute blast writing again. Interviewing Gary was definitely a dream come true.
