I will have some photos of AutoFest Kick Off to share soon. They are just being processed.
There is a wonderfully welcoming outdoor patio at BerryHill Cafe and Bakery. It is across from ScotiaBank (located at McMillan and King Streets). Find BerryHill mid-block King Street between McMillan and Centre Streets.
Yikes, the padlock is on Mike's Place Newspaper Stand on King Street in downtown Oshawa. That business has been in downtown for well over 50 years.
I just finished the book, Red Notice by Bill Browder. This is a most compelling chronicle of a man who has changed the world by inciting governments to enact human rights law directed to ending atrocities in Russia. I could not put it down. Let me know what you think once you read it.
City is doing some repairs to the sidewalk along Simcoe Street south of King St., in front of Nourished To Go and just north of Doug Wilson Men's Wear at 18 Simcoe Street South. There is plenty of parking away from the construction in Lot #4 behind the Simcoe Street shops, just off Athol Street.

Dare I say, we can put the shovels away now? Hmmmm?
For salted sand for your sidewalks and driveways, go to your local road maintenance depot to pick up free salted sand. It has been available in Durham Region for over a decade, FREE.
You may have noticed that many merchants are holding a "Sidewalk Sale" this week. From Wednesday July 17th to Saturday July 20th, 2013 merchants typically hold this sale to make way for their fall merchandise. Yes, I said FALL. Yikes. Check out the savings on many summer items that will get you through this sweltering July we are having.
There is a clarification to make regarding Murray Johnston Menswear. After 90+ years in business at 8 Simcoe Street NORTH, MJM is closed. Yesterday on another downtown fb page it was stated that Doug Wilson Men's Wear, 18 Simcoe Street SOUTH was closed after many years in business. TO THE CONTRARY, Doug Wilson Men's Wear is celebrating 50 years in business Fall 2013. Doug Wilson Men's Wear carries new clothing (rather than the vintage store as it was mistakenly described) and the latest rends from Europe. Many manufacturers are available at Doug Wilson Men's Wear, Tuesday to Friday 9a to 6p and Saturday 10a to 4p. Ron Wilson, second generation owner, would be pleased to help you with your wardrobe anytime.
Last week was March break. Having a couple of teachers in the family meant meeting for lunch during the week in downtown Oshawa. We had three generations of women at our table. Mom, in her 80s and my nieces in their 20s. Never mind which decade I am in. We had homemade, from scratch, soups, sandwiches, veggie burgers with cashew and kale butter: wow! And then we had cookies and the most incredible muffins for dessert, freshly prepared and baked that morning. Of course, you guessed it: we were at the The Table by Carol at 20 Simcoe Street South. The Table is next door south of Doug Wilson Men's Wear which will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this September. We were served by budding restaurateur, Anthony! He did a fabulous job on his March Break, working the floor at The Table.
