Daily Quote: October 16, 2020

The artist’s world is limitless.
It can be found anywhere,
far from where he lives
or a few feet away.
It is always on his doorstep.

Holidays and Celebrations on
August 28:

National Bow Tie Day

National Grandfather’s Day 
(Día del Abuelo) – Mexico


During the COVID-19 pandemic we’ve spent more time at home. Many people gardened for the first time. Others decided to do home renovations or learn a new skill. Some of us cooked more…

Return to school has now been delayed for another week by the Thames Valley District School Board, while preparations are being made for a safe return. Criticism of others for their choices has never been greater. Many think children should just be kept at home and home schooled to keep them safe. Some don’t have the ability or knowledge to teach their children at home and want them to go to school. Some can’t afford to stay home with their children as debt loads have been increasing and bills need to be paid.

Our neighbours to the south continue to see horrific demonstrations due to injustices against blacks. The latest and one of the most horrific was a man being shot in the back 7 times while in police custody. Everyone is looking for a solution. How do we eliminate racism?
