In case there was any doubt, it really is spring. Fingers crossed we'll get no more frost or snow to spoil the effect. Posted by Hello

It was 60 years ago this week that the Allied Forces finally triumphed. This is the Year of the Veteran in Canada. Here's a shot I took last November, Mr. Geoffrey Rumble, much decorated war veteran, ex Toronto Police Mounted Unit officer, sharing a laugh with P.C. Steve Noble and P.C. Harold Williamson. Posted by Hello

I have about a million shots of my older son David, all of them pretty much like this. He towers over me for one thing, and for another he hates the camera and always manages to screw up the shot, accidentally on purpose. Posted by Hello

But I actually grabbed a shot of him when he wasn't looking.  Posted by Hello

Strange sight on the beach on Tuesday. Coconut Jane bites the dust.. and here's a bonus, I'm going to impart a bit of trivia for Toronto beachcombers.. I know that Lake Ontario is sometimes called an "inland sea" but I also know for a fact there are no coconut-bearing trees in the northeast of N.America. So where are all these coconuts coming from? They're bobbing in the water, they're washed up in the dozens along the beaches. Well, I did a bit of research and came up with a likely explanation. It's to do with a Hindu festival called Raksha Bandan: it's celebrated in some parts of India as a festival to honor the sea god Varuna, where coconuts are offered to the sea. Because of its three eyes, the coconut represents the three eyes of Shiva. There is quite a large Hindu population in Toronto, and this would explain all the flotsam and jetsam of flowers and coconuts. Ta da! Posted by Hello

Not sure if this is the advertising demographic I'm going for... Posted by Hello
