Consumer awareness: National Home Services

I just had guys in blue visit my door.  They said they were from National Home Services, and that they were in our area to take a look at our existing hot water tank to see if it’s eligible for a free upgrade to an energy efficient tank.  He said that if I’m eligible, they’ll book […]

The minions are back!

First ride of the season

It’s not officially spring yet, but it’s a beautiful 19 degrees today.  We hit the road with our road bikes – first time since last season.  We completed an easy 35km and I felt that I was able to go up the hills with a lot more ease than usual.  I guess the Kurt Kinetic […]

2012 International Bicycle Show Toronto

We just got back from the bike show.  We were surrounded by a sea of bikes!  They also had booths for bike adventures, as well as booths for places such as Bruce County and Grey County where we picked up some of their cycling route maps.  We spoke with a rep from CTMA about their […]
