“Don’t bother us, we’re having our tea”, says my mother as she and Travel Bunny enjoy a visit over lunch.
Today we lunched at a new spot Dim Sum Kingston.
Mom had the menu waiting by my chair to review when I arrived as one of the options for our dining adventures this visit.
We were pleasantly surprised by the food, [...]
Sometimes it gets to be a bit much, this travelling with Travel Bunny. He sneaks into my luggage and pops up in the most unusual places, often near food, on my pillow, horning in on my drink or cuddling with yet another random stranger.
After 25 years of this, it was time to take him to task. Or at least … well… watch and find out.
And ju [...]
For our first meal after Live Below The Line we returned to our regularly scheduled weekend dim sum.
We headed out further a field than usual because our friend Linda was visiting and she came equipped with a car. So we headed north to where some of the best dim sum in the GTA can be found these days.
As usual the conversation was smart (Lind [...]
For the most part, I was alone while on this trip, but I did have some companionship during the trip.
Gerry joined me for the warm-up leg from Toronto to Kingston, which meant once I got the car I had to wait for him to finish up his day before we could hit the road… waiting waiting waiting… I’d say I was patient, but I’d be lying.
The For [...]
There were a lot of road trips and a lot of driving in my youth. I remember fondly the yellow Volkswagen Beetles, the blue Datsun, the burgundy Peugeot, but the car that stands out the most is the red Ford Mustang.
My grandmother’s car. My grandmother was a sporty, speed freak and she really wanted a red Ford mustang. So she got a red [...]

Inspired by this shot taken 5 years ago, we have taken to getting our holiday dining companions to pose with their chargers.
Some achieve very angelic visages, some a little more humours, but they have all been good sports.
If you want to recreate this experience with your friends and family, remember a couple of tips:
1. always pose after t [...]
One of the great things about having interns from away, is that you get to introduce them to food. Or at least you do when you work at CheapEats! That means you also get to revisit and re-experiencing foods and cuisines that have become ubiquitous and by extension taken for granted.
I love this shot of Ryan from the FTJco launch party. I wanted to tweak it a bit so we can use it on the Secret Pickle Supper Club Who We Are page.
Now to find equally playful shots of me & Matt.
From Fair Trade Jewellery Company to the Secret Pickle Supper Club in just 2.5 hours. With a lot of help from my friends Ryan, Asaka, Gerry, Cybelle and Aaron of course!
I needed a quick photo of dad to illustrate a point to one of my hohoto co-schemers. I figured this one where he is wearing a www.rightsleeve.com hoHOTo cap would be perfect

Ack! Dark! Though it is 0530.
Happy I found the head light. Breakfast for me and the animals, packing and then strapped on the sled and started trudging (0715).

We hit the Science Centre yesterday to see the Superheroes exhibit. In this exhibit Eli cycled to power the lights in the camera booth.
I love how this photo of dad looks so much like a painting by an old master, complete with rustic frame. In truth, it’s dad’s bedroom window.
