Let’s make this a positive place

Almost ready to spark up the display

Decorating fever hit my house over the weekend.
I put up a few sets of lights about a week ago but really did not sink my teeth into it until this past weekend.

Suffering from time change lag

I think it is almost worst than jet lag.
Every year the change back to standard time sends my body clock for a loop.
I feel draggy for a few days as I try to adapt to the changes.

Was Halloween cheaper in the 70s?

In a study release last week 81% of Canadians will be spending $1.1 billion on Halloween this year.
That is a lot of moola!

The art of making potato dumplings

It was an interesting weekend to say the least.
After eating something I probably should not have I ended up with my mouth getting all infected where I had my wisdom teeth out three weeks prior.

Help us do you right!

Why should you shop at home?
Money spent locally tends to stay local. One study showed that every dollar spent at home recirculates an average of seven times.

Fall colours are magnificent!

Did you do what I did on Sunday?
I took a drive to have a look at the fall colours up and down our highways and country roads.
It is so amazing that something that is dying can be so beautiful.

A real pain in the mouth!

No pain no gain!
That saying is definitely true when it comes to getting one’s wisdom teeth removed.
Last Wednesday I went under the knife in Winnipeg in an effort to get rid of the constant pain I had been experiencing most of the summer.

Masked bandits raid our camp

Ever have an experience make you paranoid for life?
Well about 15 years ago I was camping with my parents in Thunder Bay. We purchased a case of beer one night and put it in a cooler. Since no one felt like drinking (in our group that is) we went to bed thinking we would have a few the next day or two.

Pray for a mild winter

Think gasoline prices are bad? Well the way things are looking the heating costs for just about all sources of heat will be high this winter.
The gas companies are applying for rate hikes that will result in even higher bills than last year.
