Special delivery

"I wasn't expecting that one."

A is for activity

"They just need to be taken outside and given the time, space and freedom to run. Many kids spend all day in child care, so this may be their only chance to be physically active."

-- American pediatrician Kristen Copeland finds kids aged 3 to 5 are spending up to 83 % of their days being sedentary in the Cincinnati area.

Building icons

"The Sydney Opera House was 15 years late and 1,400 per cent over budget, yet few would label it a boondoggle or white elephant. It stands as an example of what can be achieved when risks are taken."

-- Architect and columnist Brent Bellamy defends the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg.

To the moon, Alice

"Just to be able to sell space travel as a regular part of your business, really, just how cool is that?"

-- Neophobe and Free Press columnist Lindor Reynolds is hiding from her new Kindle these days, in the bath.

Déj vu on ice

-- Randy Turner, Winnipeg Free Press columnist, on Canada's loss to Russia in the world junior hockey championship.

2012 wishes

"I want livable neighbourhoods, as opposed to unlivable ones caused by bad planning (Downtown) or by total neglect (N. End). #wpg2012"

-- Tweeter riseandsprawl Robert Galston, answering Free Press tweet, What do you want for Winnipeg in 2012?

Mom who?

"He's never known me overweight. If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn't know who it is."

-- Jennifer Hudson lost 80 pounds after her son was born two years ago.
