Inn on The Park Toronto


Where I lived when my family first moved to Toronto from Ottawa. (1965) Inn on the Park was a luxury hotel that once graced the hill overlooking Leslie Street and Eglinton Avenue. 
The hotel was surrounded by 600 acres of parkland, and included CafĂ© Discotheque, Canada's first disco. There were Olympic-sized pools, a small golf course and a ballroom.
Built by Architect Peter Dickinson, who built the first Four Seasons Hotel in 1961. From the air the hotel appeared as the Star of David, a tribute to founder Isadore Sharp's Jewish origins.

Collecting Abstract Art, NYC Lobby and Fine Art Prints


Lately I am wondering if Art Collectors prefer works of art
to have a title or a number or neither.



I have decided that my new body of abstract works 
will only be sold as originals (for now anyway).


The works featured here today are available as fine art prints!
They all have a title/name.
Often the title comes quickly - light speed.
Other times I have absolutely no idea what to call them.


Could be an emotion, a memory, a place - a feeling.
Perhaps a person I've met, known well or pass by. 


This abstract above has one of my all time favorite titles.





Surely you agree that this one above looks like a 
Right?







I hope you find and enjoy one of my works
that suit your decor and budget perfectly.
Thank you so much for collecting!

La La Land Behind the Scenes

Here's to the ones who dream
Foolish as they may seem
Here's to the hearts that ache
Here's to the mess we make

She told me:
"A bit of madness is key
To give us new colors to see
Who knows where it will lead us?
And that's why they need us"

So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays

And here's to the fools who dream
Crazy as they may seem
Here's to the hearts that break
Here's to the mess we make

How often should I sharpen my skates?


Coffee Hound Sports is a respected and recommended place to get your blades in game winning condition! (Located in Wasaga Beach, Ontario - Georgian Bay - Canada - serving the entire Central Ontario region)

How often should I sharpen my skates?

This is a very personal call. Some players will sharpen very frequently, such as every 2-3 hours of ice time. If you’re unsure of where to start, try getting them sharpened after 4-5 hours of ice time, and then adjust as you feel is necessary. It’s also worth noting that colder ice (especially the type found outdoors) is much harder, and will dull your skates very quickly. If you’re playing with your buddies on the outdoor rink, it’s probably a good idea to get a sharpening before your next game.

Coffee Hound Sports is located in the east end of the beach kitty-corner to Foodland.
