Fences make good neighbours. Seriously? It doesn’t seem like that in Aurora. In reality, I think most of us know why fences make good neighbours. When we moved to our first new home here in Aurora we didn’t have a fence installed right away. Our first issue living in a new home was unfortunately with …

Yonge Street downtown Aurora feels different when the sun shines from one side at the sunset, and from other at the sunrise. Yet, one day, I am on the mission to catch the sunny day moment in the mid-day. My second visit to the site where the Old Library was standing. Different views opened up. …

The Aurora Sports Hall of Fame (ASHOF) ongoing exhibit at the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex (SARC) is definitely a collaboration by many. One would need a flowchart to figure out who is who, and who did what, but in the end does it really matter? This intriguing Aurora sports history exhibit at the SARC walk …

When driving further South on Yonge Street, Aurora, Ontario; away from the Wellington Street intersection, the street views change. In the view there are mostly individual commercial old Auroran houses. Last weekend, while travelling to Richmond Hill, I was amazed how big the icicles on those building were getting.  But then I switched to look out …

The weekend is already here. Are you ready for some skating or tobogganing? A friendly note from the weatherman, there may be more snow coming our way. If driving perhaps is an issue this weekend to go to places where adventure is, why not explore Aurora’s places for winter fun? More so, for those who …

Photos from our last trip driving through the Aurora Cemetery on a frigid winter day. Perhaps for a little entertainment, have fun looking up the following keywords: ‘bizarre gravestones‘ or ‘unusual gravestones‘ or ‘funny gravestones quotes.” Have some laughs and when you come across this quote “if you’re reading this, you desperately need a hobby,” take …

Warning, some readers may find the following a little disturbing. While we were finishing up eating our late breakfast at a local restaurant, a Starling accidentally flew into the window where we were sitting. After the impact, the Starling dived involuntarily, face first and wings spread, into the snow. At first it felt like a …

I thought perhaps it was time to return to some of the places in Aurora I had not visited in a while. It is hard to believe that almost seven years passed by since my last visit to the Aurora Cemetery. It was that many years ago I was tipped off about the location in …

Disturbingly, this is not the first time I observed a donation site turning into a community dumping site. It is not the first time I read about it either happening in other communities. In Aurora, by the Superstore, piles of non-textile waste in front of Canada Diabetes drop off boxes are often on display. Couches, …
