Irish Pre-Game Warm Ups

The past several days we have written about the Notre Dame Marching Band concert at the steps of Bond Hall, about their entrance and music played inside Notre Dame Stadium prior to the Fighting Irish home football game, and about the Notre Dame Bagpipe Band playing at the foot of the Main Administration building (the one with the Golden Dome of Our Lady) all during home game day activities.

Delta Pilar Kitchen Faucet Review – Continued

Pilar Faucet 02

Yesterday we reviewed the new Pilar kitchen faucet from Delta, the one with the one touch, or more precisely Touch2O, technology allowing you to simply touch the faucet to turn it on and off.

According to Mike, the install took between 90 minutes and 2 hours, pretty typical (at least for me) … [Read more...]

It rained very heard during the night and rain was forecasted for most of the day. However, we were … [Read more...]

First Impressions of University of Notre Dame Campus

Golden Dome

Well we have just finished our road trip to our hotel in Mishawaka, Indiana. It took just under 8 hours but with the catching up that Harvey and I did the drive did not seem to take that long at all. Here is a slide show with selected pictures of our travel. We went from Toronto to Sarnia and then across through Michigan, down to Indiana and then across to Mishawaka. Once we checked in around 5 pm or so, we headed to the University of Notre Dame campus for a very, very quick walkabout … [Read more...]

Fall Garden Cleanup – 2

After Clean Up 016

Yesterday we showed you pictures of the garden beside our front door before and after our front garden cleanup, as well as the pictures of our front garden prior to the cleanup this fall. In case you missed the sorry state of our front garden, here is a short video clip where you can see the overgrown Hostas, the wildness of the two small trees at the front of both the left and right sides of our front garden and especially some of the Pyramidal Yews which have almost lost their attractive … [Read more...]
