Michael Offline

Michael is offline until Sunday, attending the funeral of his Aunt, Peggy Ann Walpole, in Canada. I've just been reading her obituary and it seems she was a remarkable woman. She founded and served as director Street Haven, a shelter for abused women in Toronto, and was awarded the Order of Canada.

Michael will be back and posting regularly again on Sunday.

Michael, drive safely. Or ride safely.

As an aside, I believe she recently won an honor for her work with Street Haven that included a romance novel being written that would loosely base the main character on her and her outreach.

Here's a link to that novel:
