Whatever you think of Top Gear’s RICHARD HAMMOND, I urge you to listen to him tell this story, his story, of how on the brink of death he woke from his coma.
It really is quite something.

3. Heather McTavish Taylor informs that “The Ministry has decided to send ALL land registry documents into long-term storage and to formally close all in-person land registry offices. These documents will not be returned to the communities from which they came, and they will not be accessible to the public at any time. There will not be any negotiation of new placement agreements either. Any current placement agreements will remain intact. All information is said to be accessible virtually via the OnLand portal. ” The eWeekly editor adds “If this decision doesn’t sit well with you let us know! More importantly, let your MPP know that these documents need to be in the communities where they originated.”
Bryan Cook wrote to inform about his most recent Bytown pamphlet Henry Gilchrist – Quarriers’ Home Child. It’s one I read in one sitting when the hadcopy version arrived at home.
