Film Day

Because Mr.T has the week off work and because it was promising to rain we decided to head out to the Scotiabank to catch the first showing of the new Avengers film. We opted for a regular film rather than the enhanced 3-D and Imax experience, which always leaves me with a headache. Listening to an interview with Whedon earlier this week on CBC Whedon said that he felt he had corrected problems he perceived from the first film. And watching it, we found it a tighter story. The film moves with the pace and intensity of Whedon films and introduces a whole new cast of Avengers including the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and the Vision (which was a surprise and well handled). Beyond the speed, pace and intensity it was an enjoyable story. 

May the 4th be with you

Open air garage

On a walk back from Honest Ed's today we spotted this open-air garage along an alley. It has a fully closing garage door that is attached to a well built, sturdy pergola that has a covered roof to protect the door mechanisms. This nicely designed structure could work in our backyard giving us a better gate to the alley.

Heading West, then East

Today I am flying out west to Regina where I will meet up with Mr.J, Ms.R and Ms.M. I am going to be driving Mr.J and Ms.R's car back from Regina to Ontario on another Great Canadian Road Trip. 

A Goth Weekend

Last weekend saw the Whitby Goth Weekend, an annual event began in 1994 in Whitby, England. Why Whitby, because it was the landing place of Dracula in Bram Stoker's classic book. 
Whitby is located in North Yorkshire
