DWTS Finals!

And it all comes down to ....

















So, who's going to win? It's such a toss up ... they are all so amazing! But I have to say that I would LOVE to see Joey win it.

Gone

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have removed the Trivia link ... it wasn't doing much anymore. So I booted it. Buh-bye!

Stinky Sunday

So my house smells like smoke. The neighbourhood is a little smoky and dark. And my mouth has an acrid taste in it.

I was returning home from my grandmother's this afternoon with my Sunny girl and I had to go to Superstore to pick up a couple of groceries. Because I had Sunny with me, I knew I couldn't be long. So my plan was to slip in, slip out. Well, that worked until I got to the Petro. From then on, it was a crawl. Why? Because there was a fire!

As some of you know, they tore the old rink down this week. They left the rubble in piles Friday. Well, someone must have found it to be too tempting, because it was on fire when I got to the Superstore. And not a little one. It was engulfed! The black smoke coming off that thing was monstrous. And that was what I could see from in front of the store.

When I came back out, the firefighters had arrived and started dousing the blaze ... and the smoke coming off that was even worse! It was sticking lower to the ground and stung the eyes and nose. It's now made it's way up the hill towards the middle school and has sort of settled here.
