Given the great weekend we are having in Eastern Ontario, and how I absolutely need to get to the lake and unplug every weekend you almost never find me around town on summer weekends. Canada is paradise in the summer (except -scratch, scratch) my zillion mosquito bites and with so many lakes there is a…Details
Comic-Con which is the place for established and aspiring humour actors is fast becoming the next coolest place to see A list celebrities.

What I learned from Kate and William’s visit to my country. And why being a princess is only one of the things girls can aspire too.
