If you were to describe a school in contemporary language, you would undoubtedly use words that together paint a very different picture than if you were to ask someone from a hundred years ago to do the same.  Gigantic, multi-storied buildings that house hundreds of students every day, with miles of endless corridors dotted with a multitude […]

You could just tell it was going to be a big day.  An epic day, really, one filled with seeing cars that in some cases fall into the category of the “unicorn”…  fabled beasts never seen before in person.  As the cars continued to pour into the event and were getting readied for the show, […]

As gathering around the picnic blanket gives way to cuddling in front of the fireplace, we are beckoned indoors once again as shadows fall on the landscape and blue sky turns to grey.  Now while that can certainly conjure sad images of little faces pressed against the window with smiles rightly turned upside-down,  we just can’t help but be […]

The long hot days of summer are well behind us as Autumn slowly descends on our little valley, bringing gifts of red and gold and amber.  It is my very favourite time of the year.  A time to rest, a time to reflect, to slow down and unwind.  A romantic time where a walk in the […]
