You know your car is getting old when……

I was filling up the old car today (you know the one you are sentimentally attached to and don’t want to part with). Looked at the price of gas/petrol, it seemed expensive vs the cost of the car itself (yes, it is getting old)!  So have invented a new rule of thumb…

“You know your car is getting old when…. you start to consider filling up the car as an investment”.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes Recipe –

This is a good pancake recipe.

Check out the site too.  I like the way is suggests drinks with everything.  Breakfast is too early for me I would go for the coffee for sure.!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 1/4 cups milk

1 egg

3 tablespoons butter, melted


In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Uh-oh it is snowing

Uh-oh, it is now snowing in Toronto.

Yes, this means that the queue for changing your car tires to snow tires has just gone from, “while you wait” to 4 hours.

Hey at least it looks wintery.
