Great Spot to hear about anything and everything concerning writing. Also information on my books, book signings, speaking engagements and events that might be happening in and around our town.

Morning Report

A few clouds waking up here in Port Loring Ontario Canada. Temperatures were nice through the night so everyone should have had a great sleep. Waking up temperatures were sitting at 16.7 C | 62.06 F. It will warm up a bit as the day progresses. It won’t be as warm as it has been, which is fine with me. As it stands, the whole week is looking good weather wise. My vegetable garden is growing leaps and bounds these days putting fresh vegetables on the table daily. What could be better than that. Today I will get back to working on my Flutes. I enjoy it out there when the weather is nice and can have the doors open. Lots of folks were dropping by to have a look see which is nice. The store was quite busy over the weekend. My wife is busy painting sign orders along with a few other things. She is one busy lady this year. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then get to making sawdust.

Fishing Times


Good Times
5:00 PM-8:00 PM

Slow Times
11:00 AM-1:00 PM

Today the old weather stick says it should be a fair day for fishing. I give it a 3 star rating out of 5 for catching a few. It could get better if the wind switches to the south. At the moment it is coming in from the South East. Good luck!

Good Morning Port Loring Ontario

Another great day waking up. Sun is shinning and temperatures were hovering around 16.5 C | 61.7 F. It will warm up considerably later on. Good day to get things done early and do some front porch sitting later on when temperatures climb a bit. Black flies are still out there but not as many as there was. Mosquitoes though are another story. I am afraid we will have to contend with them for a while yet. Today is mowing day for us so heading on outside. With that you have a great day. GW

Callander Horticultural Society

My wife and I would like to thank everyone for a fantastic night at the Callandaer Horticultural Society. It was a great night with a good turnout. I spoke a bit on my life, read a story and got into what Nature has to offer in general. After my talk I answered questions, and we all had a great chat with coffee and goodies. Great night and a great bunch of people. GW

The best Foods To Eat For Breakfast

  1. Top of the List : Oatmeal is a nutritional powerhouse. It contains beta gluten, which is a thick, sticky fiber that helps a person to feel full for longer and may also lower cholesterol. Also, great for lowering blood pressure.
  2. Eggs Some people think that eggs are unhealthful because of the amount of cholesterol they contain. However, research has shown that the dietary cholesterol from eggs has only a minor impact on bad cholesterol, or low-density lipoprotein (LDL), in the blood.
  3. Nuts, eating nuts is another excellent way to get enough protein. Nuts also contain antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, and heart-healthful fats.
  4. Coffee also offers other health benefits due to its antioxidants, which help fight inflammation.
  5. Berries Berries such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, are an excellent way to start the morning. They are low in calories, high in fiber, and contain disease-fighting antioxidants.
  6. Flax seeds The health benefits of flax seed include lowering blood levels of cholesterol, improving insulin sensitivity, lowering blood sugar, and even protecting against cancer.
  7. Greek yogurt is another excellent source of protein to eat in the morning. Greek yogurt is thick and creamy and contains more protein than regular strained yogurt.
  8. Greek yogurt is also rich in calcium and contains probiotics that help support a healthy gut and immune system.
  9. Tea These teas contain some caffeine but not as much as coffee. Tea can also help a person stay hydrated.
  10. Cottage cheese is also rich in B vitamins, vitamin A, and calcium. People can eat cottage cheese by itself, or mix it with other savory foods, such as pepper and spring onions, or fruit or nuts.
  11. Bananas contain resistant starch. The body does not digest resistant starch, so it travels through the body unchanged, which helps support digestive health. Unripe bananas contain more resistant starch than ripe bananas, which have more natural sugars.

Humour for a cloudy day

Now don’t get to thinking that I am a religious feller as I surely am not but now and then something catches my eye that holds my interest. In doing so thought I would share.

A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said,” Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest apologized “Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.” Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”

Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
