Good Morning! Well … it’s a snowy morning once again here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. I would say we had around three inches overnight. Not so bad, and with the temperatures rising as they are, it will melt fast. I did clean my deck off for the first time this morning, so I could get to my bird feeder. LOL Every morning the birds line up on my railings on the porch looking in … asking … where is the grub? LOL Seems that way anyways. The temperatures this morning was sitting at -1.4 C | 29.48 F. It will warm up a lot as the day progress’s, and will remain warm for the next 4 days. Kind of nice for this time of year. Highway 522 is bare and wet this morning, which will make travelling pretty good. Not that my wife and I have anywhere to go these days. But others might. Yesterday I finished off a Podcast I have been working on, and will get into another today. I enjoy doing them, and it seems a lot of folks enjoy listening to them … with all the reviews, phone calls and Emails I have been getting. Which … makes it all worthwhile. So with that, I am off for a cup of tea with my lovely wife and will add at touch of Nesquik to it, and maybe a piece of toast from some homemade bread my wife and I made yesterday. Yep you heard it right, that woman of mine put an apron on me … and told me to go to town. I made two loaves … so now we will see how they taste. LOL They will either be tasty, or … we will have two door-stops. LOL Have a great day, and stay safe. This virus is getting much worse.

Good Morning. It is a cloudy cold day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The temperature was sitting at -8.4 C | 16.88 F. It won’t warm up much more than it is right now. Tomorrow however temperatures will start to rise. We are also having some light snow. Highway 522 is bare and dry throughout. Here in the north you just never know what might develop in the winter time. Being so cold outside I kind of figure it is a good day to stay inside. Not much happening around town these days. Most all the hunters have left our area, as well as the city folks that were here in the summer. A lot of cottages weren’t opened this year with the virus. Let’s hope this vaccine does its job which I hope will take the edge of things. I am thinking though it will be a long time if we ever get back to where we used to be. But there isn’t much we can do about it, other than take precautions. Along with that, some businesses will have to close, and those will have to come up with different ways of making ends meat. If it isn’t working out, there isn’t much a person can do but move on. Hanging around hoping for things to get better … isn’t the answer. For most of my life I have been self-employed. Some adventures worked out well, some not so good and that is when I made the decision to move on to other things. One door closes a couple more opens they say. And I believe that to be true. That is if you’re a go getter. My opinion only. Take it for what it’s worth. With that, I am off for a cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then get to work on another Podcast. Take care, stay safe.

Good Morning! Well … we all woke up to a winter wonderland here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada this morning. I do see though, that we aren’t alone, as a lot of other folks have had snow too. But in saying that it is a sign of what’s to come, and it is almost the end of November. To be honest … I thought we would have had snow before this. But I am not complaining, as I am not a great lover of snow. But it is nice to look at LOL. Highway 522 is wet with a bit of snow here and there, but for most parts it should be still okay to drive on with no issues. For Ruth and I we got everything we need, so we don’t have to go anywhere. Actually … Kerry our friend who owns a garage here in town, nice fellow … is going to put a set of snow tires on our vehicle shortly, which will be nice when we get a lot of snow. I kind of figured, since the tires on our car now, are getting a touch wore out … it’s time LOL. It seems there is always’s something to take a feller’s hard-earned money. At any rate, with the snow on the ground I will be working inside on some more Podcast’s today, which will keep me busy. It’s nice to be able to do what ever we want. With that … I am off for some French Toast for breakfast. I will change that to English Toast LOL, with a touch of syrup. After that I will have a cup of tea, with a touch of chocolate with my lovely wife, and I will then let the day do as so chooses. Take care, stay safe and look after yourselves and others.

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The temperature is sitting at -2.4 C | 27.68 F. It won’t warm up too much more than it is now. We could though have some snow entering into the picture today and into tonight. Which could amount to 2 or 3 inches or so. It kind of depends on which direction the snow tracts. Highway 522 is bare and dry so far and quiet. Which is a good thing. Yesterday we went to town to pick up some more supplies, as I am thinking there will be some hard times ahead, with this virus. As it is getting worse every day. And stocking up a wee bit would be a good thing. Pays to think ahead. All my life I have always had a back up plan, which in turn paid off many times. While there we visited our son in the parking lot for a bit, It’s always nice to see him. It’s just to bad we couldn’t spend some more time with both our boys. But safety comes first. We are working on the issue though, as once we finish up this cottage we worked on all summer, they will then have a place to come to, for a visit. That way we can be together, but apart LOL. But that won’t happen till next spring. After we visited our son and picked up our groceries along with a few other things, we headed on home. I have to say it was a nice day for a drive. It should also be noted that groceries are sure getting expensive these days. Everyone is trying to make an extra dollar. I can’t say I blame some of them. But there are those that like to overcharge us hardworking folks. While in town we also saw that Walmart in North Bay is or was closed, as someone started a fire in the clothes section. I guess they were trying to make a point about something. I have to say, there are sure some idiots out there today. All that these kinds of folks do, is make things just that much harder. They say it takes all kinds to make up this world of ours. I say we could do without a bunch of them. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will then get to working on another Podcast. I do have some great shows lined up for the coming months. Take care, say safe and do what’s right when it comes to your health, and others.

Good Morning! Looking out my window here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada the sun is shinning. But it is a touch cool with the temperature sitting at 3.3 C | 37.94 F. It will warm up some as the day moves forward and, remain somewhat warm tomorrow too. Kind of nice for this time of year. Highway 522 is bare and dry and the traffic has slowed down, now that hunting season is over for the year. I guess I should say … hunting deer with a gun is over, but bow season is still with us till Dec. Mostly locals that hunt with bows in our area. I did hunt with a bow for a couple of years, but didn’t like it that much, so sold it a couple of years ago to a fellow here in town. He said he had good luck with it. On another note my wife’s sor back and mine are on the mend, so we both are happy about that. Not nice not being able to do what you want. But … rest and exercise is the fix. Yesterday I worked on a new Podcast I have lined up and will continue working on it again today. Kind of nice being able to sit in where its warm. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife. I think I will make it a green tea this morning with a touch of chocolate. Hmm, and maybe a raisin bun thrown in for good measure. LOL Take care, stay safe and do what’s right. Things are getting worse every day here in Ontario and across Canada. Why is that? Well … simply put, there are lot out there today that just doesn’t care.
