Well, I did it. There are three snowblowers on the cul de sac, and two conked out once their owners did their driveways. That left mine and seven others to do. The plow came by once this morning in the middle of the road, but then the plows were all pulled off of the roads until about 5PM. So, it was left to me to do my driveway and the 7 other driveways. I am pooped. Deborah made some homemade turkey soup and homemade bagels for supper, and a neighbor brought over a bottle of wine for the two of us as thanks for doing their driveway.

I finished by about 8PM, came in to have a hot shower, and Deborah and I celebrated Earth Hour with the homemade soup, bagels and wine by candlelight. If I was not so sore it would have been very romantic. C'est la vie ............. c'est l'amour.

Time to call it a night. See you all at Sunday Brunch. Paix, mes amis.

Glad to hear you're still celebrating Earth Hour Dr.G.

The missus, hound and I gazed upon the city from the finest view in town on Broadview Ave. Other years it was jammed like the holiday crowd waiting for fireworks. This year there were maybe a dozen people. Every year less and less. Mildly disappointed, we strolled along the surrounding streets and were buoyed by the many households that were dark except for flickering candlelight. It seems people have gone local with their gestures. Very nice to see.

A glass of wine and the quiet that darkness allows was waiting for us at home. A nice evening indeed.

quiet evening here too, haven't had too many nights off these days, so the quiet and candle light was very welcome.

Early night for an early brunch with some good friends I worked with heading back to europe. I need to head across the pond soon.

Good to hear, mrj. Few people were outside here, other than those who were still shoveling snow. Still, it was a nice evening.

Paix, mon ami.

Good to hear as well, Tim. I haven't been to Europe in years, and would still like to see various countries over there. We shall see.

How is your mom these days?

Morning all. I shall make some Sunday Brunch and then head out to shovel once again. The plows came to clear the streets, and left a pile at the end of the driveway. This early on a Sunday morning means no snowblower, at least until dawn. Paix, mes amis.

Morning Marc. Our heavy snowfall warnings have so far been a false alarm, but the day is not over yet.

Today on SAP, two really lovely sunset photos and a video that is sure to make your day. Watch as an attendee at a high school reunion lip syncs Patsy Cline's song, "She's Got You" and adds an unexpected 'twist' to the lyrics.

Morning, Don. Just got in from shovel patrol to help clean up the ends of driveways of the load left by the plow. Will get a shower and then check out SAP. Later.

Late for 4PM High Tea here in St.John's, but just in time for this tea in the Maritimes, and an hour early in the GTA. Anyone interested?
