Beautiful views of the Oak trees in the morning fog, both located at the Aurora Community Arboretum. Look out from parking lot of the Aurora Off Leash Dog Park on Industrial Parkway. "Opportunities are...
My memories of the St. John's sideroad open farmed fields are slowly fading away (Lundy Farm). Less and less I hear from some of my acquaintances, "it used to be such a nice relaxing drive between Bayview and Leslie." Take a drive, no longer can one feel...

Dandelions
This story about dandelions is one to remember. Yesterday I was driving behind a car and I noticed that the person driving the car still had winter tires on. It's already June. Where did the time go? School will be almost over for my six year old....
