oct-2016Every year, for the past 5 years, I’ve remembered the anniversary of my blog.
This year, not the case.
It came and went.
And weeks went by.
And it never crossed my mind.
Am I getting older?
Am I getting less focused?
Am I getting more forgetful?
Am I getting tired?
To all of the above.

But you know what?
It’s ok.
It’s really, really ok.

Thanks for reading.
For 6 glorious years.

Ma Cuisine.



Ma Cuisine is by far the BEST restaurant I’ve been to in a long time.
Authentic Dim Sum in the heart of St. Catharines.
I’ve already been twice and I can’t get enough.
Those little bunnies were filled with warm custard…

JT Concert Series.

JT concert series













The Jackson Triggs Concert Series is an all summer long event that so many in Niagara look forward to. It’s already in its 16th year! Several different bands play and it’s near impossible to score tickets. It’s an outdoor amphitheater in the middle of a vineyard. I know! So cool!  I somehow got 2 tickets to “Stars” last April. They’re brilliant and they have a New Order / Pogues vibe about them. Not only did they sing a lot of their beloved classics like this one – bonus points if you can name the TTC subway stops in the wicked video…

and then they covered my FAVOURITE Kanye West tune, Street Lights. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. And for their final tune, from their latest album, “No One is Lost,” which BTW I’m not sure I believe…

We drank wine, danced bare foot in the grass close to Mother Earth ;-) and thoroughly enjoyed a perfect summer night after yet another long and productive week.

Potting Season…

…is finally here.

Lost & Found.

earringI lost this earring. Like…over a month ago somewhere in the hotel. I looked around my desk for it but didn’t bother retracing my steps to try and recover it. In my mind, it was gone. And really, it was just an earring. I have plenty.

This afternoon I slipped to the ladies room. One of many I visit. Our hotel is big. Someone had left my earring on the counter. No joke. I couldn’t believe my luck. Some things do come back to you…
