At McMicheal Gallery's Cemetery - Lauren & Bess Harris' Headstone

I’ve been a Lauren Harris fan for quite some time now and also have certainly grown to appreciate the rest of the Group of 7 as well, including Tom Thomson (especially this time at the gallery) and Emily Carr.

Many of the paintings at the gallery were in the fall (with their beautiful fall colours) and since it was the end of summer when I visited McMichael I figured it was nearing prime time to go…so why not this Fall!

I suggested the idea to a outdoorsy friend of mine, and almost miraculously, it turned out he was  thinking of the same thing – going to Algonquin Park! I’m pleased to say that I’m going this weekend just a few short weeks since visiting Algonquin, and three of us plan to hike one day and do a canoe portage one day. We won’t be staying on the camp grounds this time around, but at a nearby motel.

In preparation for this trip I went on YouTube for some insights and came across a couple songs that I really enjoyed.  I thought I would share them here. Enjoy!

You probably don’t know me, but i’m looking for a beautiful girl named sierra who went to circle square ranch near kingston, ontario in about 1993 and not only do you have the right name, you kind of look like her… just a shot in the dark. I figured I had nothing to loose and at the very least I could pay a compliment to the girl I messaged, and give her hope that there are Princes still searching for their Princesses.

The theme this year was “overheard” but we didnt want to make a serious typical movie like everyone else, so we gave ourselves our own them of incorporating a robot we had made. The festival took place at the Empire Theatre in St. Catharines and it was to a packed audience; about 200 people attended and 14 films were screened in total.

In PART 1 Melanie talks about what she’s up to in San Diego, she defines “green” for us, talks about attending the recent Cancun, Mexico Climage Change Conference, ‘Hopenhagan’ and Bali conferences, and she discusses Canada’s involvement and leadership. 30 minute interview with the ever-fascinating and inspiring Melanie Mullen. I have a feeling you’ll want to be more green after listening.

As someone who worked at Starbucks for three weeks because I liked their coffee and business values, and as someone who takes advantage of the Starbucks environment to do work online, and as someone who prefers Starbucks to Tim Hortons, I was pleased to see the new and green concept stores – they look pretty cool. Starbucks “aimto achieve LEED® certification for all new company-operated stores beginning in 2010..

My oldest sister from BC – who’s taking Seminary right now – was recently in Ontario to visit our family with her husband and daughter and I thought I’d be fun to go check out the building as an outing. So on Friday morning my sister, niece and I went to the 1-hour live taping and ended up meeting Ron and Moira the hosts of the show and got a tour of the building and studios.
