NORMAND GRENIER (1945-2017)


NORMAND GRENIER (1945-2017) 
By Bernard Bujold- 
The creator of the newsletter LE GRENIER AUX NOUVELLES died... 
Normand Grenier had been operated on for brain cancer in March 2016 but he had said repeatedly on his Facebook page that he was confident of overcoming the disease. 
Normand loved life and especially people! 
His project LE GRENIER AUX NOUVELLES was very innovative in 1992, and if it was only a simple 8 1/2 by 14 fax sheet sent once a week with news about the Montreal advertising community, the concept quickly became a success and an authority in the communications community. 
He sold his business in 2013. 
Rest in peace Normand...

THE STRANGER IN THE WOODS...


THE STRANGER IN THE WOODS
By Bernard Bujold -
With the snow storm coming over US and Canada (March 14-15, 2017), one interesting book to read during this forced isolation could be this new best seller THE STRANGER IN THE WOODS by Michael Finkel.
This is the stunning real-life account of one man’s withdrawal from society who became a secret hermit near a summer village during over 27 years, in the US state of Maine. 
The winter descriptions are particularly realistic and reflective about the human feelings of one survival. 
Have a good reading and enjoy the snow storm...
