The new year arrived with cold weather outside and a nasty head cold inside. I did step out with my camera after the snow/ice storm and captured some of nature’s beauty. But I’ll admit that it took me a while to get outside and see what was new on the street.


Nestle Tollhouse Cafe

On a walk through Wellington Village, I noticed that Forum seems to have closed. It was the strangely located hipster clothing store beside the bowling alley near Parkdale. And the panini cafe at Parkdale and Wellington has still not opened, in spite of its “opening soon” sign.  I’d also like to say that I’ve really enjoyed the window displays at St. Vincent’s. I’m not alone either because it seems lots of people stop to look at the items. This month’s theme is black and white and includes old Remington typewriters. Oh, have things changed!

Walking towards Westboro, the sign is up for the Nestle Tollhouse Cafe, but no indication on when it will open. Likewise for the new vegetarian option in the former location of Milagro Grill. But the new Barley Mow on Richmond Road has opened. I’ll let you know when we make it down there.


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
