Blue moon

This corn field took on a surreal hue the other night, taking on cool colours that are no doubt a harbinger of what Mother Nature has in store for us here in the Great White North.

Ronna chats with Brenda Kennedy (who is obviously off-camera) as they discuss the Iron Curtain that Mac Williamson created for an art show. He used 621 lids from orange juice cans to create this lasting work.

And what am I bid...

Ronna and I spent a day at an auction in St-Eugène, where an assortment of essentials, including a muskrat trap, was put on the block.

We are fortunate to see the whole spectrum of natural colours at this time of year.

Fall colours

The Thanksgiving weekend gave us weather that we logically would have received in the summer.

But nobody was complaining. The weather was perfect, whether you wanted to watch light dance on a Muskoka lake or take a leisurely paddle along a stream.

Road kill

The Green Party, one of the five main parties seeking votes in the October 14 vote, is aiming to make inroads this time around. A sign for our local Green candidate somehow made it into the southbound lane of a highway on the weekend, and was run over by traffic. So, was the placement of this sign an accident, an act of vandalism, or a clever tactic to make a statement about the impact of our wasteful ways on the planet?
