I went to the yearly art show at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto on the weekend. There were some pretty amazing artist, by far my favorite was Dorion Scott.
Wish I had loads of cash to spend on beautiful art work, alas I must admire from afar

Has it really been more then a week....

Well it's been a fun few days away from the computer. I had the most beautiful time at the cottage! We have not had weather so hot and sunny there in several summers! The days pretty much went like this :

* wake up
* go for a run
* jump in the lake
* drink coffee
* sit at the beach
* jump in the lake
* some more sitting at the beach
* more jumping in the lake
* nap
* play cards
* eat a lot of food
* drink wine
* camp fire
* sleep

The heat wave continues here, I was supposed to run tonight but it's just way too hot! 43 with humidity is just crazy! I'm not complaining though, we'd be upset if it was cold.

I'm happy to report that my tomatoes are still kicking despite this heat! The plant is now almost as tall as I am!! I'll try to remember to take a pic soon.

Toronto Police, my heros!

This weekend the G20 Summit in Toronto has unfortunately brought out the worst in a small group of people. In the face of this the Toronto police have done an outstanding job. It is very frustrating to hear them being criticized by ignorant and frankly unintelligent individuals. I'm not one for getting up on a soap box but I've never seen anything like what has/is unfolding in the city I love before here.

Violence is never ok. Destruction of property is never okay. People should realize that the chaos causes so much distraction no one knows in the end what message these "protestors" are trying to convey. It's pointless and scary frankly.

I could go on and on but my message today for those who might read this is...

Toronto is a great city, the people who have tarnished that this weekend are not the majority. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the police who are doing everything they can to keep peace and control in our city.
