Be here now: The endless dog daze of summer find me floating in my kayak out on Lake Mississaganon in Lanark County, south eastern Ontario. Up to a kilometer wide and seven kilometers long, running roughly west to east, with many small bays, islands and uninhabited Crown Lands stretching across the north shore, the spring fed waters remain perfectly refreshing and clean. I love to explore! It's plenty of good exercise, paddling with lots of dives at the many swim spots I find along my way. Often, I like to paddle to the far west end. Catching the stream, I like to drift down the length of the lake back to camp. The breeze, currents and little eddies like a lazy river, as I lay back, work on my tan. By gar -If I get any darker, I'm afraid I might get shot by police next time I go back to the city!
SOME BLOG NOTES
Internet connectivity up here on the rocky Canadian Shield remains dicey at best. Sometimes I can check my twitter links on the beach, but not always. The nearest wifi cafe, the "North of 7" restaurant in the tiny burg of Plevna Ontario [Blink and miss!] is a 20 minute drive away! Our Toronto home is packed with summer visitors. So I am pretty busy sometimes when I return for supplies. Can't attend to my blogsite as often as I regularly do.

Finally: Rob Ford Crack Video Released! Toronto Neo Conster and Donald Trump's Canuck bro Rob Ford's crack video finally sees the light of day! Years after our former mayor adamantly denied it even existed while in office. Now he's long dead and gone. Were we conned? You bet! See the video and revisit my "Cracked" links, covering the Ford story back a few years. Consider for yourself how we ended up with our perhaps even more subtly terrifying current Mayor John Tory @ Cracked!
