This is in High Park. Not by me! It reminds me of the kind of photos in those old Photo Ideals books my grandmother used to collect - very sentimental.

This is a window sign from a little convinience store/deli on Bloor West, not to be confused with the more famous and more expensive Fran's on College Street.
From the looks of this place, I would not want to eat there. It looks dingy. But it's such a cool sign!

This is a new addition to the Royal Ontario Museum, supposed to look like a crystal dropped on an old building. It's under construction. It is supposed to be finished in June.
I don't like it. I wish they would put art museums in simple, quiet buildings. It seems like every art museum wants to be part of the artwork, screaming "Look at me, look at me!" so loud that it distracts from the art.

We went out last night, to the Abbey Tavern first to watch hockey. That was fun except the wrong team won. Then we went to the Cloak and Dagger, which is a great place, very small and dark with live music.I wish it was around the corner from my house. But really it's not a bad streetcar ride home.

This is around Queen Street East and Parliment Street. My husband took this photo. I don't get to the East Side of Toronto very often but my husband likes to take walks there.
He ate at this restaurant after taking the photo and said the food was great and inexpensive but the place was crowded, the tables were too close together.

Huge, icky piles of filthy partially melted snow adorn the Dufferin Mall parking lot. Even the part of it that mostly looks like mud is snow.
Since the weather has been pretty warm and it's raining today, all that is probably gone by now.
On the other side of the parking lot is The Beer Store, a store that only sells beer from Ontario. It's run by the brewers of the beer. In Ontario, you can only buy alcohol from he LCBO (Liquor License Board of Ontario) which is the government store, or from the producer of the alcohol like at a winery or at one of The Beer Stores or The Wine Stores.
You can also see Penningtons, the large size store for women.
