The Pelling Lab is based out of the University of Ottawa, and they may be able to save you some grief in terms of downsizing when it comes to stuff that uses electricity if you live in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Details here:

...but from the comfort of my basement. Just in case.

The alerts interrupting CBC Radio One got my attention.

I just got the word in e-mail from Leslie Wilson at WritersFest. We've lost the festival's signature bookseller, David Dollin. Some of you who live in Ottawa will remember him working for years with the local Nicholas Hoare Books location on Sussex Drive across the street from the National Gallery. I'd bought more than a few tomes from him in both of his roles.

Details here.

WritersFest is hosting a Celebration of his life.

I've been curating this list for a while now. I'm working on revising it again, and am looking for info on shops closed, opened, or changes of websites, business hours, etc. to keep the page properly updated. Yes, I'm also interested in shops in Gatineau!

Per the subject-line, I've buggered up my wrist (tendonitis, repetitive strain injury) and am in search of a WSIB-approved physiotherapist. Might any of you good folks have a recommendation? Feel free to forward or repost if you think you know someone who might have an answer. Thanks in advance.

What do we know of the neighbourhood before the feds set up the campus they now have there? Is there anything on the neighbourhood that anyone here can recommend?

I'm looking for visuals of the original CFD Fire Hall # 1 as was located on Tompkins in Queenswood Heights from 1975 to 1990 or so. Google Image Search has availed me naught, and so I turn to other resources...

Where would you say marks the dividing line between Lindenlea, New Edinburgh and Rockcliffe Park these days?

Happy Canada Day!

For those of you who have used pet-sitting services like Loving Paws or Pawsitive Pet Care, which service would you recommend?

I have 2 cats and 2 rabbits. I'll be out of town for 2 weeks later in the summer and am looking for someone to come over, feed them, clean the litterboxes, play with them a bit, water the plants, etc.

Thank you! :)
