Roselawn Lawn Bowling Club

Doors Open Hamilton took place May 4th and 5th. One of the newest editions was the Roselawn Lawn Bowling Clubs.

The Roselawn Lawn Bowling Club started in 1925. Situated at the base of the Niagara Escarpment, it has two regulation-sized greens in Gage Park.

Get Out, life imitating art

I finally watched this modern contemporary portrayal of race in America set within a horror movie. Maybe because I’m neither black or white, some of the innuendos I may have been missed, but being an Asian female, I have lived through many racial profiled moment. And, will admit that I have either used it to my advantage or failed to even recognize the situation.

Navigating the Airport Process

Today, after driving through the worst ice storm recorded in April, I dropped my mother and her friends at the airport for their Biennale “Jesus Tour” Trip. Because of work, I’ve been clocking a lot of frequent flyer miles and have become completely accustomed to the “do-it-yourself” digital atmosphere at Terminal 1.
