    I’m not sure what happened, but my holiday break lasted a couple of weeks longer that it was supposed to. Don’t worry… I’ve been fine, just lazy 🙂

    Anyway, I’ll be back to regular posting. I have a bunch of things I’ll be posting that are kind of old news, but I still wanted to get them posted.

    Tourist season kicks off

    1 Comment

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    This weekend the prime tourist season started with most visitors likely arriving from the Canadian side of the river.

    Over there, the long Victoria Day weekend celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria of England. Banks, schools and government offices will be closed in Ontario on Monday.

    Traffic should be backed up at the international bridges as Canadians hop across to shop with their higher-valued currency. On Friday, that dollar was worth $1.03 (U.S.).

    That hurts, if you happened to be stuck in Canada with your American buck. Chances are an Ontario merchant smugly told you that your Yankee dollar was worth 90 cents. (It’s called payback time.)

    Next weekend, many of us will be off Monday to observe our Memorial Day holiday.
