Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts. Today’s theme – When do you put your Christmas decorations up? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/06/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-6-deck-the-halls/)
Whenever I want to. And they stay up as long as I can take it – not as long as Kevin wants them to stay up though!
Oh, and Elliot and Jasper LOVE to help me.

Orange you sad you are not here at this conference with me? Nothing like having a conference in a city with a Starbucks on every corner…oh, and the conference is good too! Let’s hope I make it onto a ferry tonight so I can get home 🙄

I don’t often reblog, but I thought this should be celebrated! Thanks for sharing this Jill 🙂
This is actually the second ‘Good People’ post I have written for today. The first will appear sometime soon, but likely not as a ‘good people’ post, though the subject is indeed a good person. I debated and soul-searched about its appropriateness for the Good People post, and decided rather than perhaps stir some conflict and controversy, I would shelve it and write a different post. Today’s good person is a teacher … the winner of this year’s Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize of $1 million. I did not know there was such a prize, did you? Well, allow me to introduce this year’s most-deserving winner, Ms. Maggie MacDonnell!
Imagine, if you will, that you have just earned your college degree and are now a certified teacher. The world is your oyster; you can teach anywhere in the world. Where would you go? I am betting not too many would…

This one’s pretty cool!
I hate scraping and sanding ceilings. I also hate that it is almost impossible for you to see all the work I did this afternoon on this bathroom. All on a white ceiling.
Before (around the fan)
Before (around the exposed pipe)
After (sanded and spackled, and still will need to be sanded AGAIN, and a bit of caulking, I think…sigh…).
The rest was a lot easier to sand. Do you know how hard it is to get up a ladder around a toilet and a tub to sand and scrap 10 foot ceilings? When you are afraid of ladders and heights???
I hate prep…

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
Today, P is for Pilot Street!
Here is a Google map showing where Pilot Street is located in James Bay.
What I could find out about Pilot Street:
Back to our one-block streets, Pilot Street runs from Niagara down to Dallas Road.
Apparently there are no registered Heritage houses on Pilot, but it is known for its “wartime” housing. Here is an example:
“The opening of Panama Canal in August 1914 encouraged more industrial development in the vicinity of Ogden Point. A breakwater was constructed during WWI and the Ogden Point Docks were opened to deep-sea shipping. In the late 1920s a grain elevator was built and later a fish processing plant, both served by a railway barge slip. During World War II the former Outer Wharf became a major ship building facility for the Victoria Machinery Depot. The old Armadale Estate was subdivided, Pilot and Dock Streets were opened up and “Wartime houses,” affordable houses for the shipyard workers, were constructed. ”
Here are some pictures I took of Pilot Street.
Here is the Dallas end.
A different approach – here are some tiny houses along Pilot Street:
And, at the Niagara end, are some community gardens!
What else do you want to know about Pilot Street? Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!
