Got A Moustrap Game? Carleton Place Would Like Toys For Their Tummies

 I write to attempt to expel new thoughts going through my brain. In essence, my life has so many ups and downs like everyone else it has become a real Mouse Trap Game. Sometimes I feel like I am playing the lead role as the mouse.

So why do I relate my life to a game of toys gone by? That is because every single one of us remembers a favourite doll, game, or truck, that helped us through life. Toys are expensive, and these times money is not really growing on…

The Fairy's of Lanark County

There are magical things that dance about the fields and towns of Lanark County.  No doubt there are tales to be told. I do not know who builds these fences throughout our county, but one day  I hope to meet this magical artist. Each time I pass this house on the Appleton…

Seasonings of the Beckwitch

Yesterday I wrote about the Witches of Rochester Street. Most of that story was true, with the exception of Martha Stewart. As far as I know Martha's spatula has never hit the town lines. Last week however, I met the closest I will ever come to the pioneer sustainable…

Is the Carleton Place Gilles Mill Becoming the next Diefenbunker?

  

I used to intern for Elizabeth Coady, ex-producer of Oprah, for 10 months on a pop culture site she ran. She was a task master, but I will never forget her for the rest of my life. She taught me things I would have never learned in any professional writing course. Be clear, get the…

Hurry my Curry! You've got to Eat in Carleton Place!



Rural towns don't really specialize in Ethnic foods, unless it has the name sweet and sour attached to it. I have to admit before I hung out in Berkeley, California, my knowledge of Indian food was basically Samosas, or a cup of Chai. After my frequent trips to the iconic…

This was a story written by Jennifer Fenwick Irwin. She is the curator of our local Carleton Place and Beckwith Museum. The title of her story was "If These Walls Could Talk" and she has a blog page called Jenny on Argyle and it is so worth reading.

The Myths of Swimming After Eating

 

Whenever we had a picnic near a lake as a child, we were told to never EVER go swimming for at least an hour or you were going to have cramps and die. Each time I heard that particular ridiculous information, all I wanted to…

Florida Changing Stand Your Ground to Grind Your Stand

Two years ago I wrote a story about a den of sin in a retirement community called The Villages in Florida. Some told me it was all hear-say, but the…

Why They Don't Let Some People Drive

I used to make fun of old people who wore large hats that drove like they were in charge of a float in a parade years ago. I never thought that I would become one of them—surely it would never happen to me. After I suffered a stroke a few years ago I did not drive for over a year as I…

Should We Be Afraid of Religious Gnomes?

My Gnomes in my Gnometown are silent this morning as I eat my breakfast. There never has been a smidgen of loud partying, nor hushed whispers of a revolution to escape the yard. Heather Andrews from Pulaski, Tenn. on the other hand, has a…

Why is it Always Me?



Some people get away with murder. I on the other hand get away with nothing. Even when I am doing nothing, I seem to look suspicious to the higher-ups. In Grade 4 we were lined up one morning to go to our classroom and the girls in front of me were giggling loudly. Miss Wells…

American Retailers Failing - Blame Canada?



At the beginning of last year, Canada was seen as a gold mine of opportunity for foreign retailers. Target's hotly anticipated launch was just months away, and retailers such as Nordstrom were announcing expansions north of the border. Target's rocky launch, and…

The Cobweb



She had heard that if she built it they would come—but they did not. Each day she wove another fine line, but instead of cobwebs-- they slowly turned into cables. Would they eventually become chains around her ankles with nowhere to escape she wondered. No matter how hard she worked on her creation, bare…
