Kids Talk
Kids talk always puts smile on my face. All the things I can win, sounds like a line from Dr. Suess books. Living in today's media driven world heavily targeting children, sometimes I think that reading at a young age can be dangerous. But then the sooner...
Old School
By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. Old school summer, anyone? Anyone? I woke up this morning to snow, and yet as the sun (who by all accounts did a lot of sleeping on the job this winter) finally yawned, poured herself a coffee and got to work; my...
Our son (soon to be seven years old) now knows that the price tag on toys and taxes. Thus he knows that price tag on the toys is not the actual price we pay at the cash register. He knows he has to pay 13% HST tax...

We anxiously waited for the bell to ring. Anxious for the greatest snowball fight. It wasn't a modern ring either. It sounded like a giant telephone ringing. Once it rang it echoed throughout the walls of my old elementary school back in late 70’s. The big flaked...

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....
Aurora Town Park
In her book Aurora Memories and More, Elizabeth Milner wrote about Aurora Town Park: "When I was growing up in Aurora and I said I was going to the park my words meant only one place - the park on Wells Street across from the high school....
Forest
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...
