There's been some chatter on Twitter over the past few days about a neat website called Walk Score
that determines how walkable a neighbourhood is based on an address you enter.
It looks like Leslieville is scoring very high, in the high 70s to low 80s range. There's so much to access by foot in our neighbourhood. Check out Walk Score to find some new places to visit.
Here's a bit from the Walk Score website on… Continue

A good kitchen knife is the most important tool in a functional kitchen. You use them more than you use your cookware. A sharp knife is essential to your safety and for easy cooking, but with all the choices one has and the many techniques to hone or sharpen them, it can be a little on the daunting side.
So, if you are looking to learn and understand a little more about your kitchen knives, sharpening techniques and proper maintenance please join us for a FREE seminar.

Was wondering if anyone can recommend a good renovation person to do some decking and exterior painting?
Know any good landscape people?
Thanks in advance.

The Curzon had it's first night of Karaoke and I have to say, that was more fun than I expected.
Thank you to all the ringers that came out to give what turned out to be a free concert basically!!
Lots of great voices and good songs with a great host, Richie Rich!
That was a blast. I'm looking forward to next Sunday already!!

One of the things I've most enjoyed about moving from a condo to our house in Leslieville is the opportunity to watch the birds at our backyard feeder.
This winter we had lots of sparrows, dark eyed juncos (which I had never seen before), a few chickadees and a female cardinal on 3 occassions. They never stick around for long as we've got some fairly agressive squirrels and a couple of neighbourhood cats that like to wander through our yard.
Now that spring is here, we've… Continue

Over on the Yahoo forum there was a thread regarding computer repair. As lady Luck would have it we needed a system repaired quickly.
From the Yahoo group someone mentioned the new store "CONTEMPORARY COMPUTERS". The store is walking distance from our house so I took it over. The owner is Phil Hudson, a young energetic guy who knows computers very well and also the neighborhood.
We had the option of having the system back the same day if needed. He… Continue

What do you get when you combine High Victorian with Disco? Throw in an impressive selection of framed Jesus’s, and you’ve got the best antiques store east of Greenwoood. Lest I suggest that it’s a shop full of kitsch, let me clarify that amongst the Madonnas, boas and disco balls, are some seriously good pieces of furniture. A heavy oak teachers desk sells for a mere $ 150, double headed iron lamp standard for under $200, and a… Continue

While there are lots of awesome restaurant options in the area, we decided to do some really great apps at The Curzon. Now, while you enjoy your cocktail, pint or martini, you can ALSO enjoy great finger foods like spanikopita or beef skewers or smoked salmon cristinis. My favourite is the chicken club - REALLY tasty! You'll see what I mean!
Come and check it out.
Oh, by the way, we are thinking of doing Karaoke on Sundays. I'm wondering if anyone has some thoughts on… Continue
