Summer 2017 Blog Update!



Still keepin' an eye on things during summer at the lake!

Summertime finds Janet y I tripping back and forth between town and country; our Toronto home and our countryside summer place near Bon Echo Park, Land o' Lakes. With friends and family dropping by all the time at both locales, I'm taking care of the summer festivities out here on the shores of Lake Mississaganon.

Hard work but somebodies got to do it! I'm retired, so to speak .... Since Victoria Day, I've been busy here cleaning, setting up, kayaking and getting ready. Yup! It's time for another trez kool summer tripping and grooving out by the lake!

As a result, this blogsite will be on reduced hours as we slip into our summer mode until autumn rolls around again. As much as Janet and I love to travel, there's nothing finer than a Canadian summer. We plan to enjoy it fully! 

Fortunately, we've got internet here now! Yup! Our trailer's finally "on the grid". So this year I'll still be online, if not as much as usual as during the rest of the year, to attend to the following regular site features:


Summer Daze!

Twitter: Check me out for my regular blogsite updates, lotsa extra news links, pix, and kool tunes etc. etc. at @davidchiarelli

New Blogs: These will become available, as different issues and events warrant, throughout the summer.

Oh Cannabis News + Views -My Stoner Newz Feature: I'm starting a new summer edition, which will be updated on a regular/ fairly regularly basis during the daze ahead. Stay tuned!

Teacher Free Speech News + Views -The Straight Goods: Ditto. My new Summer Edition will continue to keep an eye on the world at large, in all it's folly. Be sure to check it out for updates too!

Wood Shedding: Rainy days can find me busy typing away. Some of my more lengthy features [The "Bob Marley" series, some of my backgrounders on medical cannabis, legalization and on Cuba etc. etc. etc.] get knocked off this way to post later. I also want to update you a bit on my site's new "Oh Cannabis" focus, as it continues to evolve, since I've retired from teaching, so that should be coming your way too, during the summer months ahead ....

Teacher Free Speech News + Views Archive 2011-17: There is ALOT of valuable info here! My teacher readers in particular, might still wish to refer back to those for our contract negotiations with the Ontario government over the years. [Alas!] Then there's the travel blogs, Cuba stories, and all sorts of other dope stuff that's still a pretty good read! It's yours to explore @ Here!


This autumn Janet and I will be travelling to Europe, Rome and Prague. Come winter, I plan to go back to teach at the Cuban schools and do my scuba/ snorkeling thing. There's plenty still coming on this site!

Hope you enjoy the Summer Edition!

Love/
Pax!
