Willowdale gets worldly at Cultura

I can’t decide which of the Cultura Festival’s musical acts I’m most excited about presenting this year. The festival launches its fourth season July 5 and continues Friday evenings for the rest of July at Mel Lastman Square. This year’s lineup is the best yet.

Ecks and the City: putting a new spin on an old exercise

One simply cannot do a private hooping session outside without drawing attention, even on a quiet afternoon. As I am hooping in my front yard, with my personal hooping trainer, people honk horns as they drive by, an elderly woman with her caregiver smiles and stops to take in the scene, and a mother pushing a stroller asks what we’re doing.

The current owners added an addition to the original 1,100-square-foot, two-storey cube. Rooflines don’t match, the exterior’s stucco-over-OSB and the lack of design work makes the squirrels woozy.
