Guy Fawkes/resetting clocks Day!!

First, PRAISE to LeRoy St. Germaine, publisher of Your Ward News.  ~  LeRoy, as an inveterate Event Promoter, thanks to U using your "Your Ward News" HQ and Office at 163 Main Street (@ Gerrard St. E.) in Toronto, ON as an All-Ages Event
venue, U are finally "doing RIGHT" by the musical performers who commit to your "Special Events" such as last night's !superb! Hallowe'en Party.  The Ca$h
Guarantee that I'd promised to pay the members of  "Lee Van Leer's WARP DRIVE KITTENS" and "Martin and Cain" trio out of my own pocket was  covered
!hours in advance! by LeRoy, as was most of the $$ that I shelled out to help
the venue "function better", IMO, and to keep the performers and my personal guests refreshed with vessels of H2O and cans of Club Soda.  ~~~~   "Big Ups"
here to Karen Lee Wilde/Wylde for her thorough cleaning of 163 Main St. and prepping the venue for the Event , including supplying and installing stage backdrop lighting in ideal Hallowe'en orange! ~ Karen also treated us to a
fine "after party" set of her fine music with audience participation incl. some
Surprise Guests.  ~~~~  THE SUNDAY ALL-AGES JAM/Open Stage @ Your Ward News continues !most joyfully! (starting sometimes at THREE pm, not always 2 pm as advertised).  ~  Re-MEM-buh!, these Sunday All-Ages thangs can also be a place to "Showcase" duos and bands! (All vocal styles welcome EXCEPT "SCREAMO"!!)  ~~  Readers n  Followers DO PLEASE JOIN US!

A Liberal Party majority Federal government!

Of course I realize that in many electoral districts this was not a pro-Justin Trudeau vote, but an anti-Stephen Harper vote. SO, we got the CHANGE that many of us wanted, and, if JT or his Party ultimately disappoint us, in four years we can vote them OUT of office. I'll sleep well tonight -- I've
another BUSY DAY 2moro!!
