Well what a month July has been. We have had some amazingly hot days, but surprisingly cool nights. Claudette has air conditioning at her place, but on a few occasions it has be cool enough overnight you’d want to put the heat on!
I haven't done it yet this summer, but I am craving a hot, hot day where I will be inspired enough to go swimming in a pristine and cold Northern lake.
It is very possible that the Stars and Thunder event held in Timmins last month will return in 2018. I had a chat with the key promoter Ron Sakamoto and he said he is ready to return. City council has had only brief discussion of on it, but five of the nine members of council have indicated they’re willing to see it return next year.
Winery tour. That’s one of the things I am looking into. There are lots going on in Southern Ontario, but I am told there is also a whisky tour. Stayed tuned.
Summer has also been nice so far because we now have a grocery store in Timmins that sells locally produced ales and beers from around Ontario. I love this stuff. Sleeman's Original Draught and Honey Brown ales have spoiled me. Also, I don't know if my taste buds have changed or what, but I don't seem to fancy "hoppy" ales anymore.
Neil is coming to Ontario next week! Yup, he is vacationing here in the Liberal east. Yes, this is where our Liberal premier sold out our publicly owned hydro company and now the Liberals are buying a coal fired hydro plant. Southern Ontario folks voted this person in as premier. I wish we could cut Southern Ontario off from the rest of the province and set it adrift in Lake Ontario. LOL
We have tiny little flies in the North called no-see-ums. We have people in the south called no-smart-ums.
Observation: As I get older, I get crankier. And I don't seem to care! LOL
