Recently had the most wonderful falafel wraps I’ve had in over 25 years — at a bargain price — at a great little take-out/eat in student oriented place in Hamilton’s Westdale. Basilique offers a wide variety of foods, served by delightful staff; I can only recommend the falafel, as I ordered it twice, it was so good! They offer great student discounts for McMaster students, and even accept McMaster student Meal Plans as payment.
Canadian painter Robert Genn shares thoughts, quotations, and wisdom about art and creativity twice a week in his e-letter “Painter’s Keys”. It never fails to inspire, or provoke thought. It costs nothing, and contains no advertising or spam-like material! I have been receiving this newsletter for several years and have found it to be of tremendous value in my artistic and creative journey. Mr. Genn’s web site is a terrific resource for artists of all kinds, as well as an archive of all of the Painter’s Keys letters.
CBC created a two hour celebration of Canadian inventions. The “top one hundred” are listed
here (CBC has once again removed a wonderful resource page), and include: the light bulb, insulin, the telephone, the Wonderbra, the zipper, the snowmobile, basketball, Pablum, the Walkie-Talkie, and my food favourite Poutine!
It offers drama, comedy, phenomenal documentaries, current affairs programming, music, lifestyle programming, special events programmes, and independent faith and cultural programming (the variety is astonishing and pleasing to our family, and we have learned a great deal about world faiths and cultures through this programming).
