Mission Accomplished: Bodygroom arrives in Canada

After a year of campaigning on this blog and pleading on customer service phone lines, results are in. Philips has listened. One of their PR-folk has emailed me the following release:


LOOK BETTER NAKED
PHILIPS LAUNCHES BODYGROOM -- OFFERING CANADIAN MEN A MORE CONVENIENT WAY TO TRIM AND SHAVE BELOW THE NECK

TORONTO (Ontario) -- May 22, 2007 -- To help Canadian men maintain a cleaner look and feel, Philips introduces its latest innovation in male grooming complete with an online how-to guide at http://www.philips.ca/c/body-groomers/294285/cat/en/ to help men tend their woolly coats. Just in time for Spring, guys can trim their fur line with the Philips Bodygroom -- an all-in-one body hair groomer for hair removal everywhere below the chin...including those sensitive spots below the belt.

This ultimate manscaping tool offers a better solution than current methods -- Philips Bodygroom is less painful and less expensive over time than waxing; and more precise with fewer nicks and cuts than scissors or blades. With a product this easy and convenient to use, men no longer have an excuse not to look better naked and feel their absolute best.

"Men are becoming increasingly conscious of their body image and until now have resorted to painful or inconvenient hair removal methods to maintain their appearance," says John Nicholls, Marketing Manager of Domestic Appliances and Personal Care, Philips Canada. "With Philips Bodygroom, there is finally an affordable all-in-one solution for Canadian guys to trim and shave unwanted body hair in the comfort of their home."

With warmer months ahead, Philips Bodygroom is an ideal tool for shearing overgrown pelts to show off hard-earned pecs for a beach-ready body and an asset to men who play sports where body hair slows down their game. While keeping a well-groomed body is aesthetically pleasing, it is also essential for hygiene and comfort. Trimming or shaving body hair removes trapped bacteria causing body odour and allows deodorants and sprays to come into direct contact with the skin, leaving the body looking good and feeling fresh. Philips Bodygroom is safe for all body zones including the chest and stomach, back and shoulders, underarms and groin area.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Philips Bodygroom is an easy-to-use body hair groomer designed specifically for men,that effortlessly removes unwanted body hair with the following features:
  • three interchangeable attachment combs allow easy trimming
    of various hair lengths
  • hypoallergenic shaving foil prevents irritation on sensitive skin
    and delicate body parts
  • ergonomic shape also allows easy access to hard-to-reach areas and
    can safely remove hair in all directions
  • 100 per cent waterproof making it safe for use in the shower or even the bathtub
To help educate men on the benefits of a well-groomed body, Philips has launched http://www.philips.ca/c/body-groomers/294285/cat/en/. Log on for a virtual product demonstration and other useful male grooming tips. Beginning in May 2007, Philips Bodygroom is available nationwide at retailers in-store and online for a suggested retail price of $59.99.

Gordon turns four and has questions

Gordon wanted to know where mommy went.

Not what happened to her body, but where SHE went.

We celebrated his fourth birthday this weekend with three gatherings. One at our house with his little friends. One at nana and grampa's house. One in Stratford with the Simpson clan.


The big party for the kids was a success. I'd never planned such an event. Thank goodness for the Internet, where I found a Martha Stewart article that laid out the basics. And thank goodness for Party City, which had a ton of Transformers party stuff ready to buy. I wasn't feeling well, but managed to pull it off. Thanks to sister Shannon and SIL Amy for being the Designated Adults who helped in wrangling and last-minute logistics. G thought the whole event was kind of loud, but he really enjoyed it. And I feel like a winner for making it happen -- some of the other parents even chimed in that they now know what goes into a kid's party, since they were as clueless as me! Great!

Great time at nana&#…

Hard to believe it's been a year - but it has

One year ago today, we lost Amanda.

Time plays tricks on all of us. We can think "that was so long ago" at the same time as "it feels like yesterday." I run into this all the time with Amanda's death.

Yes, it feels like just yesterday, or last night, or later today, that Amanda collapsed in the kitchen and died after that long, brutal battle with ovarian cancer. But every day has ticked by at a pace like any other, and it's been a whole year of those days, with incremental and sometimes revolutionary change.

As I move about our home, it's hard to fathom that she's been gone a whole year.

Many of the decorative items she carefully arranged throughout the house are in the exact same place as the last time she touched them. She had the vision, not me, so I've been reluctant to disturb her decisions on what looks good and works.

In other places, I'm reminded that it's been at least a year since something's been in place. Like the fully-s…

She went in to have our baby and came out with a cancer diagnosis

It's been two weeks since my wife and I welcomed our son Gordon into the world. It's also been two weeks since we found out Amanda has cancer.

We went into the IWK on Tuesday, April 2nd for a Cesarean section prompted by an ultrasound earlier in the pregnancy that showed the placenta dangerously close to the cervix. Too close and she could bleed to death during delivery. An ultrasound closer to the due date showed the placenta in a slightly safer place, but now blood vessels were blocking the way out. An emergency C-section was in order.

So we went in, three weeks early. The delivery went smoothly. Our baby Gordon was frank breech, pulled out buttocks-first. I went over and cut the cord. I brought our first child back to Amanda to let her see. It was better than I'd expected!

Then the surgeon started talking about finding bumps. Instead of stitching her up, the team was finding trouble inside her.

They had to page the oncologist. I went into shock, sweating and heaving on t…
