CFN To Stop Viewer Comments July 31, 2019

When I started CFN and Seaway Radio it was about views from the public. As I’ve shared publicly many times; nobody, not a single person, moves to Cornwall Ontario because they seek attention.

Black and white TV and rabbit ears!! Those were the days of great comedy , westerns and other shows , all suitable for family viewing. None of the shows had any vulgarity so all the family could spread the rabbit ears as far as they would go and watch our favourites on TV. I loved […]

It’s amazing, some of the candid shots that Calvin Hanson captures through the lens of his camera! When I first saw the animal it was swimming in the open water, and it did not have a fish.  It disappeared in the water and made an appearance about 4 minutes later, this time with a huge […]

These snowy days remind me of the winters we had when we were kids. I can’t remember too many days though that the schools were closed unless it was a very big storm. Bet we would have liked that. We walked back and forth to school and attended from 9 to 4pm, going home for […]

Garden Girl – Beginning of the 2019 Garden Dream 020519

This is probably my 10th year playing in the dirt. It all started with a small herb garden one year at a friend’s cottage in the Kawarthas. The next year, the lavender all came back, with the chives, and the mint. This is where I learned that mint cannot be trusted to stay where you […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Optimism About Heart & Stroke Month 020419

According to their web site, the late Norm Ross was the chapter President. There were 59 charter members at that […]

Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford – Ice Cream @Cornwall Square, Art & a Tiger Tale!  012119

We lost the Brookdale Mall some years ago. I loved the Miss Cornwall Restaurant and it was also handy to have a movie theatre in the same mall. Recently we lost the Eastcourt Mall which was another nice mall but, like the Brookdale Mall area, there are still lots of nice stores there which people […]
