Eliot said in The Wasteland, “April is the cruelest month of all.”Combine covid, closed pools, snow, Rogers wireless malfunction andmisbehaving bowels, and April 2021 has been the worst ever for me.TMI/FYI:  I was tethered to a toilet for 36 hours thanks to Costco Spanishflu-risotto!Thankfully food is once again my Friend.Or my enemy.Earlier today I was chasing cherries to the bottom of a tub of KawarthaDairy Bordeaux cherry ice cream!We are all digging deep into our coping reserves these days.To focus on WELLNESS rather than a sugar high, I discarded the empty icecream container and picked up my favourite...

Covid-19 has affected all of us in multiple ways. It is tough to swim a long distance race without a bell lap in sight. This website is undergoing some changes. Our outdoor season is in doubt.
