Derek Weiler, Editor of Quill & Quire

The Canadian book world has lost a respected, thoughtful and knowledgeable observer.

Derek Weiler, editor of Quill and Quire,  died suddenly at home in Toronto on Sunday at the age of 40. Although no specific cause of death was given in the announcement on the periodical’s website, he was reported to have been in poor health for several years.

Weiler joined the staff of Quill and Quire, Canada’s leading publishing industry periodical, in 1999 as a writer, assuming the editor’s chair five years later. He will be missed.

The Masters Golf. Fantastic Weekend For Sure.

Well here is the winners of the Masters Golf game which was played over the weekend. You know, I am not a great sports person, but I have gotten into watching the Masters for the past twenty years or so.  I figure it’s the best, when it comes to golf and sure look forward to it.  Darn shame our country in Canada doesn’t cater to it a bit more.  Folks sure don’t know what they are missing.  The scenery is enough to get a fellow or gal to watching it all on its own.  One of my sons dropped by to watch it with me and for four days we just sat back and enjoyed.  My other son was down with a cold, but he did watch it with a  cup of hot chicken soup at his home.  Didn’t want to pass on his cold to his family.   I was hoping for Kenny Perry myself, but wasn’t to be.  Also Phil Mickelson sure put on a show, one that will go in the history books.  Everyone this year sure can’t complain about the game, it was one of the best. Can’t wait till next year.  My opinion only.
