These illnesses were sometimes regarded as the causes of what was considered insanity, according to a researcher at www.ontariogenealogy.com. Female criminals (often described as […]

I love to explore all of the little shops in our three core areas. Not only can you find the most interesting items that you’ll never see in the box stores, you meet interesting people who are passionate about what they do.

Sometimes they come as easy as the plunge of leaves off of a Birch tree; on a cool autumn breeze. Sometimes they come through […]

February 11, 2015

Poor Pete Carroll, he seems like such a nice guy, the sort of man you’d be honoured to play for. What can’t you say about the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks coach? Well, for starters despite his success and the reputation as being a players’ coach he’ll forever be remembered as making a horrible play […]


The Fight – Stalemate

February 10, 2015

As I whine and she bitches Nothing will ever mend these stitches Words fly out full of denial, disrespect and dismay While every time it ends when one of us freaks out and decays Hormones fly about Trying to figure each other out But we don’t know what we mean Just getting the upper hand […]
