3 CORNWALL SQUARE BACK TO SCHOOL FASHION SHOW Article and photos by John Lister This past Saturday, the Vu Nightspot was the scene of not one but three live hard rock bands. The Lenny’s Plutonic Ashtray evening began at 7:00 pm when local band ‘Lenny’s Plutonic Ashtray’ took the stage with their four piece ensemble. Next, Ottawa band ‘Mosely’ took over with a set of hard rocking songs. Finally Cornwall band ‘Above The Violet’ finished the night with a rocking set that included some originals.

Mosely

Above The Violet

Above the Violet (posing in the top photo) are currently working on their debut CD, recorded here in Cornwall at Fingerman Studios. All three bands feature Female vocalists, backed by bass, guitar and drums. It is great to see original local music being made available to the public like this.

Snippets of News - Presented by Jason Setnyk News & Politics GOLF FUN DAY ON RETURNS W E D N E S D AY SEPTEMBER 11TH - The popular Team Cornwall, Mayor and Council Golf Fun Day

will be held on Wednesday, September 11th, 2013 at Summerheights Golf Links. The tournament has been a sell-out for the past seven years, with close to 150 golfers making their way to the green to support our city’s unique ambassadorial program. The tournament will feature a continental breakfast at 9 a.m., followed by a Shotgun Start at 10:00 a.m. Lunch will be included, as well as a buffet supper around 4:00 p.m. Space is limited to the first 144 golfers, so register early to secure your spot! Registration fees are $125 per golfer, which includes breakfast, 18 holes, cart, lunch and a buffet dinner. Registration forms can be obtained at www.TeamCornwall.com or www.Cornwall.ca. As with previous years, when planning your foursome for this event, we strongly encourage you to include at least one out-of-town golfer on your team. This provides a great chance to introduce your guest(s) to our community and allow them the opportunity to network with many local leaders. “The Golf Fun Day is a great way to support Team Cornwall and to showcase Cornwall to those outside of our community,” said Mayor Bob Kilger. “We are always happy to take part and to recognize the great efforts of our countless ambassadors.” GETTING AWAY FROM LIFE AND RECONNECTING - Joanne Gauthier is a horse lover. She is also a people person who believes humans can learn from listening to nature. Creating a calm and relaxing place where horses are the teachers and humans are the students became her passion. That passion is now a reality with the recent opening of her business Equus Wisdom Ranch. Equus Wisdom Ranch offers individuals a place to go when you need to get away from life and connect with nature, specifically horses. “Equus Wisdom Ranch provides an opportunity to be in the moment and release that great breath of air we may have been holding in our lungs all day, all week, all month, and for some of us, all our lives,” explained owner Ms. Gauthier. “There is no judgement here at the ranch. You can come in, explore your inner self and relax in the presence of horses.” Equus Wisdom Ranch operates on the belief of Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning. This school of thought assists in building strong leadership and empowerment skills to be more confident, congruent and aware through interaction

with horses. This results in a better focus, better communication, stronger trust, motivation and respect. PRESENCE OF WEST NILE VIRUS FOUND IN MOSQUITOES IN OUR AREA - Mosquitoes in our area have tested positive for the West Nile virus. Although there have been no human cases reported in our region, there have been cases in the province. “The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has been actively monitoring mosquitoes for West Nile virus” says Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health. “This finding shows that West Nile virus remains a concern in our area, even towards the end of the summer.” For more information, visit the Eastern Ontario Health Unit’s website at www.eohu.ca and click on the Community Health section, or call 613-933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120 and ask for Health Line. LIBERALS FAMILY BBQ AT LOST VILLAGES MUSEUM - Local members and supporters of the Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry (SDSG) Federal Liberal Association enjoyed an afternoon of family entertainment at the Lost Villages Museum on Saturday, August 17th. “The weather was perfect; it was a great day for Liberals”, said Del Jones, President. Liberals had the opportunity to hear encouraging words from Ottawa-Vanier MP, Mauril Bélanger, former Kingston and the Islands MP and long-serving Speaker of the House, Peter Milliken as well as former SDSG MPP, Jim Brownell. Mr. Jones challenged local Liberals to get involved as volunteers and sign up for the Victory Fund. “There is a 75 percent tax credit for contributions on donations of $10/month which means it only costs donors $2.50/month – less than ten cents per day to support the Liberal Party. “Justin Trudeau has strong support across Canada but it will take hard work and financial support in every riding to restore a progressive Liberal government in Ottawa.” $500 DONATION TO BBBS - BSC Vinyls and Brothers of the Highway presented a donation of $500 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District on August 7th. The money donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters seven free mentoring programs was raised through a fundraising campaign spearheaded by Shannon Cullen, owner of SC Vinyls. Cullen’s customers, the Brothers of the Highway, approached her in May saying they wanted to give something back to the community. “They asked if together we

could do start a campaign to raise some money for a local charity, and I chose Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Cullen. The Brothers of the Highway is a group of local professional transport truck drivers. Cullen was already supplying the truck drivers with decals of their group logo, so she suggested that a portion of the profits from the sale of logos go to the local charity. The fundraising initiative also involved the hair stylists at the Fifth Wheel Truck Stop, who donated a portion of the proceeds of haircuts to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District, if the

name of the charity was mentioned. Cullen and the Brothers of the Highway plan to continue the fundraiser for several more months and hope to raise even more money for the mentoring programs for local children and youth.

Arts & Culture KINSMEN IN MOTION - Car lovers will have reason to cheer on Sunday, August 25th as muscle cars and other wheeled beauties assemble in Lamoureux Park for the first-ever Kinsmen in Motion Show and Shine. In addition to the traditional car show, the Show and Shine will also feature food vendors, live music – courtesy of Cornwall’s own Switchgear beginning at 1:30 pm – and a large kids’ zone featuring a giant inflatable slide, a Hot Wheels drag track, a magic show and other play features. The event runs from 9 am to 4 pm (rain or shine), and admission is free. The idea for the event came courtesy of Kinsmen Club member and classic car enthusiast Jody Archambault. A participant in car shows himself with his ‘93 Mustang hatch back, Mr. Archambault saw potential to host a car-themed event in Cornwall’s picturesque waterfront park. And he believes it can eventually become a huge draw – similar events in other communities often draw tens of thousands of visitors. “It’s a way of attracting people to the community,” he said. “I’m hoping next year we can bring it to the next level.” If the weather cooperates, Mr. Archambault said there could be upwards of 200 vehicles on display for the event, along with motorcycles and other vehicles.

Sports & Lifestyle CORNWALL TRIATHLON AUGUST 24TH & 25TH The Cornwall Triathlon offers a unique experience that sets it apart from other triathlons in the area. Partnering with the City of Cornwall the Cornwall Triathlon features traffic free courses in the city core on both event days. Saturday events include a Duathlon of varying distances for ages 13 & under and a Triathlon of varying distances with a pool swim for ages 7-13. The Sunday events include 5km run, Try-A-Tri, Sprint, Olympic and Sprint Relay Triathlon distances and a Sprint Duathlon. For more info visit their website: http://www.cornwalltriathlon.com/ NAV CENTRE WELCOMES 500 SQUARE DANCERS Over 500 square dancers will be arriving in Cornwall later this week to participate in the Summer Magic 2013 Square Dancing Weekend. he three-day convention kicks off on Friday, August 23 at the NAV CENTRE, and it will include participants from five Canadian Provinces as well as the United States. This year marks the fifth time that the convention has been held in Cornwall. The event will feature six different levels of dancing lead by instructors from California, Texas, Arizona and other parts of the United States. Summer Magic is one of the largest square-dancing events held in Canada. "It's good mental and physical activity and fun as well," said Mr. Moger. "We use modern music and many new modern figures that the dancers enjoy. Its come along way from the old days of square dancing."

Each day that passes we are one day closer to the end of the Harper government and for me that is enough motivation to work hard on behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and Justin Trudeau. Mr. Harper’s comments that Liberals have “dangerous ideas” and their proposals are “so extreme they would make the worst European budget look solid in comparison” are childish and ridiculous. Really Mr. Harper, is fear-mongering the best you can do?

these businesses?

ices

Previous Liberal governments implemented a universal health care system, established the Canada Pension Plan, gained the respect of the world through leadership in peace-keeping initiatives, and kept the country out of a needless war in Iraq. And of course, the last nine years Liberals were in office they ran surpluses that ensured Canada was better positioned to withstand the 2008 financial collapse than any other major industrial country. And what dangerous ideas will a 2015 Liberal government bring to the table? How about national leadership on health care, a focus on income security for an aging population and a compassionate, caring government that makes decisions based on evidenced-based research and social justice for all Canadians. Continue to fear-monger Mr. Harper and Liberals across Canada will continue to prepare for government in the 21st century. And I will rise every day and celebrate knowing that we are one day closer to the end of the one-man, Harper government.

On Sunday, August 11th, my wife Frances and I had the pleasure of hosting our 9th Annual Constituency Picnic. Thanks to a wonderful staff and some great volunteers, the event went off without a hitch. After being so well received by the many constituents throughout SDSG it is very gratifying for Frances and I to return the favour and welcome people to our home. The picnic has become a bit of a tradition for us. We have been feeding our guests the same menu, providing the same entertainment and everyon e seems to enjoy themselves year after year. We even have bouncy castles for the kids. Speaking of entertainment, Lucien “Smokey” Leger and his family have been our entertainment since our first event in 2005. 87 year old Smokey, his sons Alan and Brian, along with son-in-law Rick, keep everyone tapping their toes and sometimes even singing along to the many “old favourites” they play. I feel truly fortunate that our Constituency Picnic is the only “gig” these very professional and accomplished musicians play at all year. They have already been booked for next year’s special 10th Anniversary Picnic. Certainly one of the highlights of the afternoon is when Frances sang a few numbers. As some of you know, Frances has a beautiful voice and she is always a fan favourite when she sings her traditional three numbers. Many of our guests are most complimentary of the beautiful flower gardens Frances works so hard at preparing for our special event. I do cut the grass, however this year I didn’t get the weeding done, although I don���t think anyone noticed. In all sincerity this day is very special to me. It is very humbling to welcome all the great friends we have made over the past years to a very simple happy family event. Our BBQ gives all of us a chance to catch up with each other, see old friends, and just be grateful for the wonderful country we live in. For me it is a wonderful reminder of just how fortunate I am to be blessed with being the Member of Parliament for Stormont, Dundas & South Glengarry. GUY LAUZON MP for Stormont, Dundas & South Glengarry.

My little market friend Spencer came to visit me at the Food Lovers’ event as well. He will be at my shop this week-end, selling homemade lemonade. Spencer has a very giving heart, he will be donating half of the funds he raises to my monthly charity Maison Baldwin House. He is very special and really brightens my day every time I see him, you will love his sparkling eyes and beautiful personality. You will notice that my new space at 812 Pitt Street, unit 40 (The City Centre) is going through a huge facelift…. it is for sure going to look great once it is finished. The shop will still be open on Saturdays, 9am to 4pm during these renovations, don’t worry about that. Within a couple of weeks it will have a new roof, new siding and a new cement patio with wheelchair access… this will make it safe for everyone wanting to check out my shop. It will be messy and not so pretty for a while but the final product will be amazing!

Please be patient, your friendly neighborhood Health Nut is still inside waiting for you with a smile and all of your favorite homemade goodies. This is where that old saying is so fitting “Don’t judge a book by its cover”….come on in…. This is officially my last week of summer holidays, back to work on August 26th. This summer has sure gone by quickly, filled with many exciting events. I am looking forward to getting back into a normal routine and starting up a whole new series of healthy eating cooking seminars, juicing challenges, juicing cleanse workshops and hoping to introduce new seminars as well. I always like to challenge myself and try to offer original and unique ways to give your lifestyle healthy alternatives.

What a great life experience last week-end at Upper Canada Village. The Food Lovers’ Field Days was a great success! Many people came through the gates and took part in a day filled with amazing aromas and treats for the taste buds. Congratulations to the organizers that took the time and put in the effort to bring this one of a kind event to our region. I met many people from Montreal, Gatineau, Kingston, New York State etc…. they were thrilled to be there and were truly enjoying the experience.

An Epic Summer The alarm went off this morning at the typical 5:45am, early enough to allow for some much appreciated snooze delays. There is something about indulging in the last few luxurious minutes before I start my day. Today was a bit different as my son Brad is home and we are about to embark on our last hurrah before summer break comes to an end and the school life kicks back into high gear. Of course, being a typical teenager, it took several reminders that we had to get ready and head to the train station for our long-awaited trip; we narrowly made it in time, only to discover there was a halfhour delay and that Internet is not working, but that is not going to affect our mood.

It has been an epic summer filled with concerts, patios, parties, some sightseeing and I cap it off with the long awaited return to Fan Expo where my son Brad and I will meet like-minded people who enjoy sci-fi, comic, anime, fantasy and horror genre. It is a chance to meet the writers, actors, artists, sneak a peek at the latest shows, meet the casts and dive into another world with the props and the costume clad fans that make this show come alive. Even the food has a TV/Movie theme this year with Star Wars inspired meals and Walking Dead desserts; have to say I am curious. This year they added a sports show to the fan experience and many hockey, football, baseball, and wrestling celebrities will be attending the Toronto event. As a sports fan I welcome the addition, although not all share my sentiments on this. This is our third time that we attend. We had to miss last year because I was preparing to move to Kingston and Brad was packing up to leave for college; so when the tickets were available earlier this spring, I purchased them and started planning for our return and now in this final stretch of August, it is here! The best part of this trip is a chance to enjoy it with my son. As he now lives in another city attending college, it is a 4 day extravaganza where we can suspend belief and relish in the escape world we both enjoy. Brad as a young writer and artist will also get a chance to network with people in the industry he longs to be part of.

Have a great week, in health…

Yes the crowds can be ridiculous, and patience will be tested, but it will be a trip to remember.

A weekly look at racing from both sides of the 1000 Islands With the 2013 racing season quickly coming to an end at our local tracks, the action is starting to become intense as point championships are on the line. This past week I was back at Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night after being closed the previous week. Brockville Speedway was my destination of choice on Saturday night and on Sunday I was off to Cornwall Motor Speedway. It has been an exciting season at Mohawk International Raceway in Hogansburg, New York. This track is one of the premier racing facilities in the Northeast, and the racing is always phenomenal. Billy Dunn has been the guy to beat over the last couple seasons and that domination has continued this year. Dunn won his sixth feature of the season on Friday night, and taking a commanding 38 point lead with just two events remaining. Following Dunn across the finish line on Friday night was Mario Clair, Zach Aubertine, Brian McDonald and Lance Willix. The Sportsman division has seen similar domination in the past from Dylan Evoy, but the 2013 season has taken a different twist as Corey Wheeler has stepped up to become the top point man so far this season. Wheeler won Friday night’s main event and now holds a 26 point advantage over Evoy. Wheeler’s win had fans on their feet, as he crossed the finish line in first by mere inches over Robert Delormier. Darryl Nutting, Dylan Evoy and Mike Maresca rounded out the top five. Other winners on the night include Mathieu Robinson in the Mod Lites and Corey Castell in the Bandits.

The next event on my schedule was Saturday night at Brockville Speedway. Stephane Lafrance dominated the 30 lap main event, taking the lead just before halfway and cruised to his second win of the season at the BOS. Lafrance is the only local driver to use a home built chassis and his innovative skills and talent behind the wheel of a racecar have helped make him a fan favorite. Danny O’Brien stormed through the field to take the second position, current point leader Lee Gill finished in third with Bryan Rogers and Pat O’Brien rounded out the top five. Sheldon Hoogwerf ended a two year winless drought taking the checkers in the Sportsman division. Shane Pecore finished second to strengthen his point lead, Jason Shipclark, Chris Herbison and Kenny Polite rounded out the top five. Other winners on the night include Chris Bakker in the Rookie Sportsman, Travis Andrews in the Street Stock, Corbin Miller in the Rookie class and Jason Powers in the Ford Dingwall Vintage Modified Series. Cornwall Motor Speedway was up next on Sunday night. Carey Terrance has had a tough few weeks at Cornwall, but this week was much better as he picked up the win in the 30 lap main event. Laurent Ladouceur, Brian McDonald, Joel Doiron and Stephane Lafrance completed the top five. Chris Herbison won the Sportsman feature event, with Jessica Power finishing with a strong second place run. Current point leader Joey Ladouceur finished in third with Bill Mullin and Robert Delormier finishing fourth and fifth respectively. At Can Am Motorsports Park on Friday night, Taylor Caprara captured the win in the Sportsman division finishing ahead of Brandon Hagan and Josh VanBrocklin. Greg Belyea won the Late Model main event. As most people learned over the past week, a local driver was suspended indefinitely from competing at DIRTcar sanctioned tracks. Luke Whitteker received the phone call from the head officials at DIRTcar on Wednesday stating he was receiving the suspension. Just what “indefinite” means at this time is unclear, but he was unable to race this past weekend, and the future of this young star in the sport remains in limbo. I am not going to defend “cheating”, and I understand tech officials are doing their job, but I feel that in my opinion the "indefinite" penalty was too harsh considering the precedent that has already been established for other drivers with a major violation of the rules. It will certainly be a story to follow over the coming weeks as to how the penalty is dished out to the Whitteker team.

This coming weekend I will be back at Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night for my weekly visit. On Saturday night I will return to Brockville Speedway as they host a full program plus the invasion of the Sprint Cars, featuring the Patriot Sprints, Southern Ontario Sprints and the CAOSS Sprints. The Sprint Cars return to Cornwall Speedway on Sunday night as well as a full program for Sportsman, Pro Stocks and Semi Pro and the Vintage Modifieds. Alternatively, Saturday, August 24th is also the 2nd Annual Night of Fireworks and Destruction Monster Truck Show. This event will feature Monster Trucks, Jet Quads, Enduros, Demolition Derby and more, plus an exciting Fireworks show. For those of you attending Brockville Speedway on Saturday night, be sure to stop by the Finish Line Web Design merchandise trailer. As always, any comments or suggestions can be sent to crevelle@ripnet.com You can also visit me online at www.finishlinewebdesign.ca, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/crevelle, and on twitter at www.twitter.com/finishlineweb17.

SEEKING SPORTS

Cornwall River Kings new coach J.F. Labbe resigns Already dealing with a blockbuster trade that sent one of their fan favourites in Mario Joly to the Valleyfield Braves, Cornwall was dealt yet another blow today as it was announced that interim coach Jean Francois Labbe has resigned. Labbe had signed on after original coach Al Wagar left the team earlier this year. In a phone interview with Jean Doyon of Sorel Tracy Magazine, Labbe made this statement: "Last week, I received an offer I could not refuse. I am responsible for a Sport-Études du Triolet High School in Sherbrooke. I'll take care of the Bantam AA team, in addition to courses in hockey concentration. This is a full time job that will allow me to work in my area." You can’t really blame the guy for leaving. Yes, we would’ve been an integral help to Cornwall’s second LNAH season but a pay raise and a chance to work close to family is an offer that nobody in their right mind would turn down. This had nothing to do with internal politics.

Labbe has had enough time in the spotlight with a very lengthy goaltending career. After completing his junior years in the QMJHL he went on star in the AHL with the Cornwall Aces, Hartford Wolf Pack and Syracuse Crunch among others. He even had minor stints with the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets. With no North American teams calling his name, he headed over to Europe and played in the German Elite League and in Austria. Last season, Labbe started his coaching career in the LNAH with Trois Rivieres. The hunt is on for another coach for the Cornwall River Kings and they better have a few in mind as training camp and exhibition games are slated to get started soon.

So Advertise Your Coming Events With Us ... Call us for complete details ... 613- 935-3763 ext 1 ORGANIZING A KITCHEN FOR THE FIRST TIME Part 2 of 2 - Organizing the kitchen Depending on the size of your kitchen, it can take a day to organize it (including washing the cupboards). For some people it may be difficult, at first, to discard items but soon it becomes much easier. After a very short time, you will not even realize these items are gone because you were not using them. You will end up with a lot more room in your cupboards. Sell (also through auctions) or donate never used kitchen small and large appliances. If you don’t use an appliance, no matter how much you’d like to use it, you need to let it go. If you’re having real trouble parting with an item, make a commitment to keep it for 30 days. Using an appliance like a juicer is actually a lifestyle change, so move it up to the counter top. If you start using it and it becomes a habit, keep it; if not let it go. Physical organizing Get three bins label them: discard, donate and sell. 1. 2. Put a bed sheet on the floor at one end of your kitchen and take everything out the drawers/shelves by sorting the items by categories, on that sheet, as you empty the cupboards. Categories (sauces, vinegar, spices, soups, vegetables, baking items, etc.). Spices are no good after a year so throw them out. 3. While sorting, check the expiration date of each item and discard what is not good and no longer want. If the item has not reached its expiration date, donate it to a food kitchen. 4. Before purchasing plastic containers to put items in bags or small bottles, measure your cupboards to find the exact size and amount of containers you will need. 5. Once all the cupboards are empty and clean, put away food items with the nearest "use by" dates at the front of the shelves (in plastic containers as The cooler breeze of Fall inspires us to return to the drawing board and begin once more to feed our creative energy. Gone are the lazy hours of dreaming in the warmth of Summer. Maybe you never stopped. Good for you. However a gathering of creative souls always helps to inspire the spirit towards action. Focus art once again has a year of activities planned for its members to do just that. The first Wednesday of every month members gather to talk about art. There will be workshops, a juried show, exhibitions, critique of art work, demonstrations of techniques and expeditions.

On Wednesday, September 4th, everyone is welcome to the first meeting of the year. Doors will open for registration at 6:30. Arrive early.

required); meaning when you arrive from grocery shopping put the newly purchased items at the back, this is when the plastic containers becomes really handy. You can see, at a glance, what needs to be used and how much you have left. Utensils, dishes, plastic bags, pots and pans - Use interlocking plastic containers for utensils and small items. Regroup items used for the same function in the container. Store all bake ware in the same drawer, all wooden spoons in the same holder, and spices in the same drawer/cupboard (keep your spices in alphabetical order for quick retrieval). Keep extension cord inside the item it belongs to and fold it neatly. Store things close to where you use them. Pots and pans are best kept near the stove - mixing bowls near the countertop - plates, glasses and flatware near the dishwasher. Store most frequently used items in the most accessible places and at eye level. Store heavy items below waist level and infrequently used items on high shelves. Keep a step stool for easy reach. If you use your oversized turkey platter only once a year, you don't need to store it in the kitchen. Instead, store it on a high shelf in the basement. If you have items requiring instructions, keep the instructions together, alphabetical order and labelled in a small decorative box in the kitchen. For kitchen items with several pieces (you may not use as often), regroup all these items and put the pieces from one particular item in a see through plastic bag - including small broken items that need repair (repair within a month or discard ); write on a label its purpose and the item it belongs to. Check annually your inventory of all utensils, cookware and dishware and get rid of unnecessary duplicates, items damaged beyond repair, chipped cups and glasses and things you no longer use. To keep kitchen cupboards clean, use 15 minutes on any particular day to clean only 1 cupboard. This is the secret for an all year round clean kitchen.

To welcome everyone, well known musician Mike McAnany will perform popular 60's and 70's tunes, folk and celtic music. He's a great climate creator for our guest speaker of the evening, Mr. Gerry Swift. Mr. Swift is an accomplished artist, teacher and is the Art coordinator at The Abbey for the Arts, in North Lancaster. (visit: The Abbey for the Arts / select visual art coordinator) Members should find the evening a chance to be motivated and catch up with friends. Refreshments will be served. The Board will also be able to give you an idea of the calendar of events for the coming season. On a special note, this year Focus Art is reaching out to photographers. It is evident that more and more artists are using the shutter box as an asset or as a medium. At the October and November meetings there will be two group activities at the same time. One session will allow photographers to gather, learn and exchange information. This is a trial and we hope budding and experienced

The Centennial Choir of Cornwall

PASSION for FASHION by Marlene Baker

The Centennial Choir of Cornwall is welcoming potential new members to our Fall rehearsals. Experience and enjoyment singing in other choirs are the best criteria. All sections are available and the ability to read music would be a valuable asset. Informal auditions will be held after a few weeks to determine voice placement. The first choir practice will be held at 6:45 on Monday, Sept. 9th at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 28 Second St., Cornwall. Further information at 613 9361131 Good Day to everyone who may be reading “Passion For Fashion” today. I hope you have been enjoying this lovely hot summer weather that we have been experiencing over the past week. I certainly am. I'm getting in some "beach time" with the four grandkiddies and some wonderful hours spent in my kayak with John, on the cool waters of the St. Lawrence and the many little streams along Hoople Creek. I love being able to observe and be a part of "Mother Nature's Wonderful World of Wonders." Not only is it so relaxing, it is a great way to exercise and be out and about seeing so many beautiful things, such as all of the flora and fauna that delights my eyes, my mind and my very soul - all these wonders that make up our world.

It's Back-to-School... That can only mean one thing...

IT'S BACK-TO-DANCE ! Registration dates and times Saturday, August 24 10am - 2pm Wednesday, August 28 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Well, even though we have been having some very hot days, the nights remind us of the approaching Fall. Time to get into your closets and drawers to get out your warmer clothes. It's time not for "Spring cleaning," but for Closet Cleaning. Tip for this week: If you haven't worn something for 6 months or more, toss it out. (Not literally. Please donate your unwanted, gently used items to the thrift stores here in Cornwall. Such as at the Salvation Army, Vallue Village and the Agape Center.) This also helps you make room for your new items of clothing, for the Fall season.

Last Saturday night I had the pleasure of supporting three live bands, playing at the Vu Night Spot here in Cornwall. Two of which were from Cornwall - Seen here, Above the Violet & Lenny's Plutnic Ashtray and the other band, Mosley, was from Ottawa. My partner, John Lister happens to be working with Above the Violet, as their producer and mentor. All in all it was a very interesting evening for me being around such enthusiatic, young people, expressing their love of music. Until next week....Accept your body the way it is...YOU are UNIQUE & BEAUTIFUL!!! You don't need to be a certain way...BE YOURSELF!!!
