I found these on Etsy. This would be a simple woodworking project for someone. It’s a clever idea, even a place for your glasses.
This is the post I wrote about old cars being found in even older barns, for the Ontario Barn Preservation newsletter, January 2023.
Cars in Barns Are “Barn Finds”
I like to photograph old buildings, farm houses and barns included. I’ve met a lot of people who also have an interest in old places. Not everyone is about photographing them.… Read the rest
I understand the idea about pulling down statues, burning books, and trying to change how history is viewed, but I am concerned about censorship.
Changing a point of view can be done without destruction, like burning books, toppling statues, defacing graves, and so on. People don’t need to destroy things in order to change perspective.

Do you remember BookCrossing? It’s been years since I last logged in. Funny that I was thinking of the book which I had last read the last time I was at the site. I couldn’t remember the author or the title, but there it was, first on my profile page.

Laura is secretly handling the Canadian World Domination plot. It’s all very polite and litter free but for the odd moose rampage.
I started typing in this post and then the Internet decided to die. Usually, the post would manage to be saved as a draft, this one didn’t make it. So, although it only matters to me, this post is being written a second time around. Kind of right when thinking of Cassandra Peterson, better known as her character, Elvira.… Read the rest
I’d like to read the books by Nick Eyles, about Canadian geology. Two of his books are about Ontario history and places to see for the rocks.
I have always liked rocks, one of the oldest and most enduring things on our planet. Really, is there anything that can top a rock for endurance and long life?… Read the rest

I’m posting this from my very messy desk with the TV on to my left and my nearly cold coffee at my right hand, in danger of wrecking my faithful little scanner.
