Why Dogs Bite

I often hear dog owners say "oh, my dog would never bite anyone" and I always have to correct them. Unfortunately, no one can predict whether or not their dog will ever bite. It's like saying that you'll never put your hands out to catch yourself while falling. For dogs, biting is a natural behaviour in many situations as they use their mouths the same way we use our hands. If something comes too close to us, we use our hands to put distance between us; dogs will use their mouths. If something… Continue

This blog post is not about political parties, candidates or political platforms.

It's about VOTING.  Yep...the right we have to select our next government.


Out of 23.6 million potential voters in the last election only 5.2 million voted Conservative. 

That's only 22% of the eligible voters.

There are about 5.6 million eligible voters 18-29 who for the most part did NOT vote.

The Leslieviller has a lot of members who fall into the 18-29 year old…

Choosing a Dog Trainer

Choosing a Trainer is not as easy as it looks. There are so many out there, but there are also many methods to choose from. It's always ideal to enlist the help of a trainer before bringing your dog home, but if you've "missed the boat", don't worry; better late than never!

Do some research online and get out and talk to other dog owners. Ask them for a training reference and take notes so that you have a list of five trainers in your area that you would like to call. Schedule…

GUFF: Mid-Century Mod at Reasonable Prices

Just around the corner from my house is a fantastic antique furniture store called GUFF. It stands for Great Used Furniture Finds. They have mostly mid-century modern stuff, but there are a few other things thrown in there too.

Voulez-Vous Café

Why are so many people from the film community opening up cafes? 'Because we're used to working brutally long hours, with little sleep, and it's great preparation for running your own business,' says Voulez-Vous Café owner, Sean Lacey.

With Sean at the helm, Voulez-Vous opened it’s doors in February, 2010 with a mission to serve great coffee and create a community hub. Located at 1560 Queen St. East, just before Coxwell, it’s a welcome addition to a rapidly changing…

Fresh Farm Produce = Yummy

I just renewed our summer share for the CSA program from Kawartha Ecological Growers. What's a summer share and a CSA, you ask?

“Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a socio-economic model of agriculture and food distribution; a system that connects people craving farm fresh local produce directly to the farmers growing their food. A CSA consists of a community of folks who commit to supporting a farm before the growing…

Get A Tune Up

I sit in front of a glowing box (aka – my computer, which I refer to as “the hot snot” – but that’s a story for another time) for hours and hours at a time.  And that eventually takes its toll on my neck, back, shoulders, and forearms.  I love my regular Pilates, which usually works out the kinks… but every once and a while, I need a serious tune up.…

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
