I know exactly what you are thinking - 'Jerry has lost his mind, peaches and tomatoes don't go together'. Ahhhhh . . . but you'd be wrong! It turns out that they go together famously Who knew? Paul and I... Continue reading

At this time of the year I generally have plenty of eggplant, zucchini, and tomatoes so ratatouille often crops up on the menu. I wanted to do something a bit different so I tried this tart from the folks at... Continue reading

I confess that when Paul first suggested this recipe I wasn't too excited about it. I love grilled halibut but the thought covering the yummy fish with blueberry salsa turned me off. Nonetheless, he persevered and when I came home... Continue reading

SIGH I can not deny it any longer. At first it was the proliferation of back to school sales. Then the nights started to cool down more. Finally the sun is setting before 8 PM for the first time since... Continue reading

This week's Photo Hunt theme is 'public'. This was a public toilet for men in Amsterdam. When you're used to private, fully enclosed spots in which to do your business it was a bit shocking. I was also curious with... Continue reading

We had an amazing long weekend in Ellicottville. The condo we rented was amazing . . . I did lots of walking. The gardens were great (this was in the arboretum near the condo). I enjoyed walking around the town.... Continue reading

Because last week was our Annual Meeting there was a bit more news coverage of our actions than normal . . . like this editorial cartoon in the Hamilton Spectator. SIGH Continue reading

This week's Photo Hunt theme is 'beard'. Michelangelo’s Moses has a complicated and difficult history. Like the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to design and construct his tomb in 1505. Typical of renaissance era popes,... Continue reading

The past week has been crazy busy with the Annual Meeting at work. To help us recover, two colleagues and I planned a long weekend away. We're heading to a well known ski destination across the border. Of course we... Continue reading

This image will be well represented in thousands of photo collections this year. Toronto placed this sign in front of the reflecting pond by city hall for the PanAm Games. As can sometimes happen this sign, meant as a temporary... Continue reading

Next week is our annual meeting for work. This means the prospect of a very busy week stuck in a large convention centre listening to debate and speeches. Generally a VERY long week. It has become traditional for us to... Continue reading

he did a good job with this one. OK. He does a great job with anything he makes. Sadly (?) he has a job interview on Monday - my days of having a home chef might be coming to an end.
It's interesting that you say that about the Bess Crawford mysteries Marta. My mom said much that same thing. I'm devouring the Ian Rutledge ones but will hold off on the other series. I agree with you about the fascinating way each one explores a different aspect of the 'Great' war.
