Concert…in Muskoka

It is in support for the West Muskoka Food Bank Nov 25 2-4pm at St. James’ Anglican Church.   All performers donate their time and talents so all proceeds go directly to support Dollars for Dinners which is a team of dedicated volunteers who assemble slow cooker meals for families of 4 in freezer bags that the food bank distributes.  Funds also buy slow cookers (our local Home Hardware gives us a deal) which are given to families the first time they come in.  It’s an amazing local program that provides hope and dignity as well as delicious and nutritious meals.

Hope to see you there!

How To Fix Pizza

I am no cook..but..

I tried this several times this summer and wow!   This trick is so good, I almost want to buy a pizza and not eat till the 2nd day.  The procedure works with frozen and fast food  bought…2nd day pizza.   When you take your time to save that last piece, instead of throwing it out,  for day two tells how good it is.

Get BBQ warmed up on LOW…place pizza on bottom rack for 5 minutes lid closed…..then place pizza on upper warming rack for a further 5 minutes..lid closed…eat when temperature gets below burning your mouth. ……..only qualified BB-Q ist should do this..as it can be dangerous and cause death or burn down the cottage.

This may not work with a loaded pizza..as you can see mine are plain.

To each his own..but to me its good.

 

Brandy Lake’s First Little Library

Brandy Lake’s First Little Library at 1013 Phyllimar Lane, Brandy Lake

Several years ago I saw this initiative and thought it was great. Since then it has grown to thousands around the world although primarily in USA and Canada.

This was built with left over building material.

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. This library has been registered with www.freelittlelibrary.org the Charter no. is 56310 and should be listed on their website within several days.

Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

So please come by, take a book out to read or bring one for others to read , appropriate for all age groups.

This library will remain throughout the year. However, there will be limited accessibility in the winter due to the high snow. We do not come up in the winter and will not be clearing the path for the Library.
