Forgive me readers for I have not absconded and am still blogging. It’s been 2 weeks since my last entry and I have to confess that I have been taking that time to myself, to hang out with Miss Mouse, to organize and mainly to sleep before baby came. And guess what….she’s here! Quincey Ellin [...]

One of the items in the news today was about a recent draft report that fare evasion is cost the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) over 22 billion dollars last year, a jump of almost double than last year. Now anyone who lives in the Greater Toronto Area knows that the TTC hasn’t had an easy [...]

It was a dreary depressing day last week when I read the graphic novel Skim by Mariko Tamaki and illustrated by Jillian Tamaki (ISBN: 9780888997531,Groundwood Books, 2008) and I have to say the story didn’t help bring me out of the doldrums, not in the slightest, and that was a good thing.
