As a person given to the streets, I walk up and down Queen St. East in Leslieville talking to people about what matters to them. My sense of place does not make a distinction between sacred and secular space. To me it is all holy ground.
As in my community, there are people here from all…Continue

Church in Toronto calls Filipino Hispanic Pastor to be their Minister
The Presbyteries of Waterloo-Wellington and East Toronto have both sustained the call from Queen St. East Church to have Rafael Vallejo as their minister and teaching elder.
For two years now, Rafael has been serving with the congregation at Queen East as their Lay Minister. This urban church with 135 years of history is today a multi-racial, intercultural faith community that seeks to become a “house…Continue

A computer backup is like car insurance. You know you need to have it and you hope you never need to use it. Given the critical importance of technology for today’s small business— client databases, financial data, profit and lost accounts, grant applications, educational and advocacy materials are all created and maintained on computers—it is stunning to me that still many (MANY) small and medium sized companies do not backup their data.…
Friends in the neighbourhood always ask me what is a good laptop I can get for myself, my kids or my home. For most this means the laptop will be used for surfing the internet, Skyping, Facebooking, watching You Tube or Netflix, using Office Apps suite(word, power point, excel), editing photos from your digital camera, and DVD movies or games.
My advice to them is always:- dont spend more than 400 dollars on a new laptop. To me a laptop for home use should…Continue
There's a new place in Leslieville to satisfy your sushi cravings. A hidden gem at 388 Carlaw Avenue, House of Moments serves a delicate Eastern-Fusion menu -- from sushi, shrimp tempura, and miso soup, to AAA Angus Beef Tenderloin, Lobster Butteryaki and Kalbi Beef.
What most will not know from looking at the beautiful ivy covered facade of this restaurant, is that it not only offers a variety of…Continue

Finally! It was so refreshing to once again have a breath of warm spring air in the city. I loved being outside today, taking in all the flowers, birds, and lots of butterflies!
I'm a new transplant to the area so it was great to be able to walk around and see what my new 'hood has to offer. I had lots of visions of me and my BF enjoying picnic lunches this summer, strolls along Queen East and brunch at all the new (to me!) places in the area.

The plays rotate, so that there's a new play in every neighbourhood each night.
One of our neighbourhoods is Leslieville. We will be performing at the Curzon May…Continue

Although the City of Toronto does nothing to clean the laneways and maintain them, I might be suggesting that this neighborhoud get together to start some of kind of activity to either upkeep, repair and maintain these areas which are quickly becoming eyesores. Never mind the situation with dogs eating potential dangerous foods and dying, these laneways are extensions of the streets and our backyards. I am amazed at the people feel that they can leave trash hanging around; fence doors…Continue

As I walk through the city of Toronto on a daily basis, I am still shocked to see how many people still tie their dogs up outside outside stores and leave them for a stretch of time. I'll admit to doing it up until last year when we had a series of dog-nappings in the city and my eyes were opened to the dangers. It was…Continue
Many of you share my concern that the City is poised to cut a number of programs and services that affect children, including a number right here and in our community. The budget will be determined this month at a council meeting that starts on Jan 19th.
There is still time to impact these decisions.
If you are concerned, or want to learn more, please visit our website and sign our online petition. …

Turkey in my family is traditional for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Unfortunately, it is also traditionally very dry. Some of my family members just refuse to eat breast meat as a result. Others load up on veggies and bread. This Thanksgiving we were saved by a new brother in law who…Continue
