DH and I are just back from three days in Ottawa -- or more precisely, a day and a bit, with most of the other time spent driving up and driving back!
I wanted to see the Van Gogh exhibition at the National Gallery before it closed Septembe... Read more
I played golf (not well) yesterday in our annual professional association tournament -- and it was great fun. Sunny day, great company, scramble format -- where at least some of "my" shots were used.

Dropping the "At Goal" part and focusing on the learning how ... Read more
