Niagara still falls

By Joanne Niswander

Yes, I can attest that the Niagara River continues to rush toward the Atlantic, via Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway. But what a spectacular picture the river presents as it pours over the precipice at Niagara Falls! If you've never been there, the trip should be on your "to do" list - not because it's just another tourist attraction (which it can be if that's all you want), but because there's not another sight, or sound, to match it.

Few game developers have r'esum'es as diverse as Peter Molyneux, current Creative Director of Microsoft Games Europe. A few games early in his career made waves critically and commercially-Populous and Dungeon Keeper spring to mind-but he did not truly blossom as an auteur until he founded Lionhead Studios.

The barbecued dinner that wasn't

Picture this. It's Memorial Day and the annual parade route rolls right past your house. A slew of people will be walking past your house. What do you do? Half of the Steiners take advantage of the opportunity to market two of the bicycles ousted from the family stock. Within minutes they were snapped up.

Now picture this. It's 11:30 a.m. and the husband casually announces to daughter number one that the Legion is having a Harlan's chicken bbq. Never one to turn down Harlan's, she is in the car before words are out of his mouth.

Bicycles R Us

Some families have lots of cars and a few bikes. We have lots of bikes and one car. Well, technically we have three cars but two of them have decamped for Kent and Cincinnati. In the worst of winter, we have to shuffle the bikes to make room for the car which most of the time resides in the driveway.

We (technically, just I) ride a bike year round - when possible. The other person in this house is more of a fair-weather rider. So when fair weather arrives, we begin the ceremonious "opening of bike season".
