I had a good chuckle last Saturday at the Aurora Farmers Market & Artisan Fair again. Yes again, because I wrote about the dogs in the Aurora Farmers Market in the past. Who let the dogs out? There were so many dogs last weekend that I couldn’t keep up photographing them and I couldn’t help …

Yes, Town of Aurora residents will be voting at the polls if they are in favour of a ward system. Sometimes I ask myself why the interest in politics. I don’t have any particular desire to be a politician, but I am for an ambiguous reason drawn to our local politics. Perhaps it is the dynamics …

Our Town of Aurora community is definitely growing and I am for sure experiencing our town’s growth on Saturdays. There is so much to be seen around the town that recently I must set my mind for one or two things to visit each week.  I don’t know what I missed but I know that …

I thought that this year’s cold winter would slow things down – not a bit. Sometimes if I wait long enough to observe these places I tend to find …

Last week on the way home from Arctic Adventure at the Town Park we drove by the construction site near our home on St. John’s sideroad just East of Leslie Street, Town of Aurora. My five year old immediately spotted new homes sales office and a big sign beside as we drove by. “St. John’s …

Sheppards Bush and good weather definitely go hand in hand. Today’s winter weather was beautiful and appreciated by many. We all know how volatile our weather has been in the past few months – so I didn’t take a risk and I arrived at the conservation area in the early morning. The main entrance to …
