Colonoscopy Cuts

ColonoscopyOur poor Picton hospital is shrinking, one department at a time. Now the axe is falling on the endoscopy department. Personally it’s 45 minutes to Belleville General for me, versus 10 minutes to Picton. A fully functional hospital is a must in any area, especially in an area with a growing number of seniors.

Healthy Choices

Mayor McCheeseI’m a little cynical moving into this election. We have a questionable selection of mayoral candidates who want to lead us through the next 4 years. Some say we’re better off than Toronto, but at least there I’d know who I can cross off the list immediately.

Fast Food

McDonald'sI don’t really understand visiting a largely agricultural community like Prince Edward County, and then choosing to frequent fast food joints which are easily accessable in the city. I get it, it’s cheap and easy, but yetch. Just down the road are amazing fresh produce stands with prices often cheaper than the grocery stores. You just have to be willing to explore a bit.

County of the Grapes

County of the GrapesSeems like more and more people are hearing about the great things happening to wine in Prince Edward County and flocking to see what all the fuss is about. There are somewhere around 50 wineries in the County now, plus beer makers and a distillery, and they are maturing nicely.

Wine Suckers

wine mosquitoSummer is a super busy time, so I’ve shirked off my duties and taken a week to concentrate on other things. So here’s an older cartoon that I think still rings true, and I hope you enjoy it. (The cartoon and the wines, not the mosquitos.)

County Experience #1 – Whine Farming

County Experience no1The County is a great place to live. Fantastic actually. Much like the rest of Canada, it is filled with a variety of colourful individuals who have moved here from near or far at one time or another. Some more recently, some have deeper roots. Most have an opinion on where things are going, but for better or worse they are all allowed to have an equal say on the County’s future, so say the laws of the Country that this County resides in. Learn to get along, or move along and till another field.

This cartoon is the first in a series of County Experience cartoons featuring a County twist on a classic image. How many will there be, and how often will they come out? That’s all part of the experience.
