Steel is up for three new businesses at The King's Ridge Marketplace in King City.   I don't know if the news is official yet, but the info was passed on to me by one of the King's Ridge merchants.  The new structure is between Tim Horton's and the LCBO.

WHAT

DID THEY

USE

TO PICK

UP YOUR

GARBAGE

THIS WEEK?

Things are not always as they seem as they seem, are they?   No, and garbage collection in King City has not been taken over by monster lifting cranes.   This rig was delivering heavy cement building forms to a home under construction, next door, and parked itself hovering above our garbage.

Long way from home...

 Photos by Barry Wallace
This American licence plate caught my eye, a day or so ago, outside The Roost Cafe on Keele Street in King City, and I noted with interest that, to my knowledge, I had never before seen a Utah licence plate in our village.   King City and Utah are a mere 3,000 kms. apart.   Two phrases on the licence plate reminded me that many Americans do not understate things, when pride of country is on the line.   The phrases were "Greatest Snow On Earth" and "Life Elevated".   I hope your stay in King City was pleasant, folks.   Come again.

If it's good enough for Kim Kardashian...

Vampire facials available in King
I've no idea what a vampire facial is, but I'm told Kim Kardashian is promoting them, so they must be a hot item.  Anyway, they are available in King City.   The advertising reader-board above was spotted in the village, on Doctors Lane, at Keele Street.

Linda's last rose of summer


                                                                                                                                         Photo by Barry Wallace 
'Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone;
No flower of her kindred,
No rosebud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes,
Or give sigh for sigh...
-- Thomas Moore / 1805

Lots of activity ~ not much to see yet

Photo by Barry Wallace
Construction of the new King Township municipal offices is now well underway, at the west side of the village, but there is not much to see yet that resembles a monument to local municipal government.   Completion will take place in 2018.
