T Is For Tower

We have what used to be the largest tower in the world, until Dubai beat us out, The CN Tower. It's located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.... for those that don't know, which I am certain you all do.

I have visited the tower many times in my life, living 40 minutes away from it. It never ceases to amaze me each time I see it.

I've taken so many different angles... in this photo, you would think it was a whole new building.

It really should be one of the natural wonders of the world. As a kid I took a trip to Jupiter, and it left from the CN Tower! I'm totally serious!!!

There's also the TD Tower, but I really only enjoy that one at night.

So come to Toronto, take a VIA Rail train, and see what you enjoy most.

  3. Hi Freda,
    I'm afraid I'll have to admire it from afar and through your pictures. I have terrible fear of heights. Have a great day!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
