Traffic lights at Country Day School
Here's great news for anyone and everyone who visits Country Day School on Dufferin Street each day, or each week, or just passes by regularly.   Traffic lights have been installed at the entrance of the private day school and should be activated soon.   Country Day School (CDS) was founded in 1972 and over the years, and particularly in the last few years, vehicles entering and exiting the school property have had a difficult time getting in and out, especially in the morning and afternoon rush hours.   Those concerns should now be a thing of the past, hopefully.   All's well that ends well.

Give a kid a camera...


My youngest grand-daughter, Brawley Elizabeth Wallace-Parekh, age 10, has taken up photography and sent me two recent efforts.  The top photo is a late afternoon setting sun in the family's backyard, near Ottawa.  The photo at right is a self-portrait.
Nice work, Brawley.

Fencing and trees at the KH&CC in Kinghorn...

 Photos by Barry Wallace
New fencing and evergreen trees has been put in place at the King Heritage & Cultural Centre in Kinghorn, at the King Road and Jane Street.   The fencing runs along the north and east property lines providing a measure of privacy for the new homes surrounding the site, as well as containment of  activities by the public.

Saskatoon Berries...in King Township?

Photo by Barry Wallace
Here's a sign I've never seen before while driving around and about Kettleby.   It's on the northwest corner of Keele Street and the 19th Sideroad.   I've never had a Saskatoon Berry but perhaps in the summer of next year I will taste one for the first 
time.   They are usually grown in western Canada but I've read they are found in northwestern Ontario also.
