What is George's doing next you ask?
The 2010 NHL Awards are in Las Vegas this year.

Jonas who has appear on The Hour with Dave Salmoni had been stolen on June 18th while being transported through Quebec with a couple of Camels in a trailer, have been recovered safe and sound early this morning.
Viewers of The Hour that remember Jonas, the staff at The Hour that met Jonas, and George himself who has had Jonas as a guest twice have been very worried since the news of the theft.
This photo shopped picture may have been posted on The Hour as dark joke but the concern about Jonas behind it was genuine.
We are so very happy this ended well!
Totally not on the ball lately; unlike our 'footy' friends in The World Cup!
Nevertheless, as Steph had mentioned last week, CBC is running TWC at all hours, so it's best to check your local programing for when to check in on The Hour.
An FYI for those who appreciate the show's writers, A source tells me that Pete Zedlacher (a writer on The Hour) will be on an episode of Rookie Blue, a new Global show starting this week.
Wondering what George himself, is up to lately? Follow him on his recently reno'd site: strombo.com, for all things Georgy.

George gets ready this week to set off on his motorcycle trip up to places like Louisiana and The Gulf then he will go west to head to his summer home in Los Angeles to work on some projects there.
I believe a few members of The Hour crew (Adam the writer and Darby the videographer) will be going with him on this odyssey to a) keep him out of trouble and b) help document the trip and C) to drive a truck filled with supplies the motorcycles can't carry.
Another member of the writing team, Pete Zedlacher will be heading in a different direction this summer. You have seen him on a number of sketches on The Hour this season. Pete works as a stand up comic when he is not writing for television. This weekend you could catch him at the Comedy Nest in Montreal.
You can follow George on his facebook page to get news of his trip.
Have a safe and happy summer!
