AtticsRemember in the "old days" when houses used to have attics? I was fascinated with exploring my grandnother's attic in New Edinburgh, Ottawa. The attic was accessed by a pull-down set of steps…Continue

Jackson Square is only 2 blocks from my apt. But to get to the accessible entrance, I have to go around the corner and another block. Some shops are closing due to leases expiring.
There is an entrance to the new (much maligned) Farmers Market from the Square which is helpful.
My favourite cheese dealer is there.
I carried the weights and my shopping home in the basket of my walker. I never planned on carrying 4 lb. of weights home without the basket! Tomorrow I'll try working with them a bit, instead of the 1 lb. ones. My right arm needs a lot more work.
The machines at the gym are good for my back and are helping. It is hard work though.
"saw" not "say". I've been working on the computer all day, and my mental processes are shutting down.
MarilynLou, I resisted the Internet for a long time. Now I can't imagine living without it, or I can but I don't want to. I would never have met so many nice people otherwise. And did you have to carry the weights home? You really are amazing. I remember "National Velvet" with Elizabeth Taylor and Angie Dickinson too. It was the first or second movie I ever say.
MarilynLou you're amazing! good for you....you did alot today....JSquare and that area....is it still the hub of Hamilton??
I remember The Grand National from Elizabeth Taylor's first movie - National Velvet.
two were killed.
Took the bus to CTC on Main St., again in a roundabout way. The buses never seem to go where I want to go! Ended up on the wrong st. and had to take a Delaware bus back to where I wanted to get off and then walk two blocks. Coming home, learned (the hard way) the King 1 bus only goes as far as J.Square,
Okay, get out there and did some shopping for food at the Market - namely some British meat pie for supper and a couple of nice looking tomatoes. Also got a small sole fillet and some smelts for quick cooking. I'll have the pie tonight. Too tired from trekking around to make a supper. His meat pies are good.
I did get the 2 lb. dumbells at CTC. I phoned first before making the trek. Glad the weather was warm, if a bit overcast. Figure I got my workout just getting the dumbells!
Working in the gym is getting harder! Seems every day Opal, the therapist, increases the weights. I always try to do one or two more than she says; but the pulleys are getting to be REALLY hard work and my poor right arm is hurting from it. Have to limber it up with lighter exercises home here today and tomorrow. Gotta be ready for Monday!
Plan on going to CTC for some 2 lb. dumbells. Sport store in J.Square doesn't have them... only 5 lb.!
Gary - Spectator Letters:
Beware the Internet - it's a menace, by Ian Alexander
I do not know anyone whose life has improved noticeably due to the Internet. Presumably, social media improved Donna Marie Antoniadis' life because she makes money from it. She's an expert; she's a salesperson. Experts have objectivity. If you predicted in 1945 that in the near future people would voluntarily log their personal information onto a worldwide tracking system so corporations, strangers (and perhaps police) could "follow" their every move, you would be called mad.
I am 80 and the Internet is invaluable to me
I would like to say to the letter writer that my life has improved due to the Internet.
I am 80 years old and new to Hamilton so don't know many people here yet. My family is scattered across North America - a daughter in Newfoundland, one in B.C., and one in Nevada. My sister is in Florida and brother is in New Brunswick. The Internet with email is invaluable for communicating with them, as well as the friends I left behind when moving to Hamilton.
I can read my daughter's blog from Newfoundland and know how her family is doing. Before the Internet this would not have been possible.
I am not so foolish as to put my personal information such as address and phone number on any Internet site.
Yes, the Internet has proved invaluable to me and improved my life with communication.
