The title of this blog post is probably dating me.  I don't  know if that term Avon Calling is even used anymore but it came to me as I was thinking of a title. I think it stems back to the days when Avon products were sold door to door.  Does anyone remember the Fuller Brush Man?  These door kno...

It's been 10 days since we packed the moving truck, a pickup truck, a van and my car and left Oakville for our new home in Tavistock an hour and a bit down the road.  Ten action packed days, I must add.

This is me taking out my frustrations with Rogers Wireless.  I visited my mother last week and she has been having problems with her Rogers Rocket stick on and off for the past few months.  She got the stick because she wanted to be able to take her laptop with her when she went away on holidays ...
