It's all in the Game...

Many people enjoy different series of television programming, and are regular viewers. One dares not think to telephone when specific shows are being broadcast – possibly even repeats! Omigosh, peoples’ tastes vary so widely it’s difficult to keep up with who’s watching what!

I’ve heard it said that the popular “reality” shows follow a predetermined pairing of partners, assigned tasks, and who’s cut before another. Whatever the truth may be – each series has its following! Over coffee or at-the-cooler discussions are punctuated with sighs or gleeful versions of “I knew it” or “I can’t believe he/she stayed on so long!”, etc..

In our household, T-V and all its glories applies and appeals mostly to the gentleman of the house more than me. (Except for horse-racing of course). Recently however, I did follow with interest the Canada’s Top Chef competition which airs on Monday evenings at 9:00 p.m. on the Food network -  with attention to one contestant in particular. Chris Kanka is a great nephew – and  with fellow participants it was a thrill to see these chefs vying to stay in the competition every week!

It’s all in the game though, and Chris has departed the company of his peers. From the proverbial “frying pan into the fire”, as they say, Chris’ bride will soon have an already-trained and versatile fortune cookie in her kitchen. Congrats!
