Montreal Pet Shelters Going to the Dogs…and Cats – May 27, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

Vancouver Writer Derek K Miller Passes Away, but leaves his Words and Message – May 9, 2011

Cornwall ON – I don’t really like being considered or called a Blogger.    Too many people use that word as though it’s something odd or freaky. A blog is simply another form of website which is a form of communication.    It’s all too semantical for me. I run an online newspaper which I’m […]
