A small blog, by John Leeson & Oksana Kuryliw. These pages were first set up in February, 2013, but updates have been pretty infrequent the last couple of years. Stand by… one of these days that will change!

In fact, here is a new page, just posted in April, 2017 on our upcoming documentary about Oksana’s father, Chapters and Verses: Action Bill’s Walk Through Life.

We can be reached by email at website@jookjoint.ca

Our Twitter feeds are on the right. Oksana’s (@oksana_dok) at the top, followed by John’s (@libyatoronto).
