Time flies, we're all getting older and some of us are getting wiser. RB turned one this weekend and it doesn’t seem five days ago since Al woke me up to tell me she was pregnant; I had to ask her to turn the light off and repeat what she just said. That night I ran 17miles from work, over the Humber Bridge and back, with the cold air my thoughts oscillated between new life on one hand and the bridge on the other.

There is a theater, a comedy show place, restaurants galore (dinner at CRAVE, a very nice restaurant) and even a 12 lane bowling ally on the top level. We were amazed. I was glad we didn't know about the bowling place before we got there because I don't think I'd have been able ...

... loved the Singapore noodles) then walked through campus to see the Weisman Art Gallery.

We came out to see the building, which was designed by (or at least an extension of which was designed by) Frank Gehry. I have to confess that it was a bit of a disappointment. Some slabs of the tempered metal had been attached to the surrounding walls of the old museum, maybe to make it blend in. From a distance, the form was ...
