Ottawa Authors and Artisans Fair

I hope you won’t judge the quality of my writing by that of my photography. Unfortunately, my BB cellphone is showing its age and just is not up to the task of indoor shooting in low light. However, these shots, poor as they are will give you a taste of the Ottawa Authors and Artisans …

W3Junkie IS the Continuing Sage!

It all began with a simple typo! Now, I will be the first to admit that I am not good at checking my work. The version of WordPress that I use does have a built-in spell-checker and I do avail myself of its services 90% of the time but in this instance it would not …

On our sister blog, JustRW – Home of Canada’s Un-Chef, we recently wrote a review of a local restaurant. For us, it was merely one of many that we have posted in the last few months and held …
