Downtown Living

Just wanted to share this with you, on our anniversary the local paper interviewed Gord and I for a feature about living downtown. It's a regular feature called Downtown Living, like many downtowns they started deteriorating with the proliferation of malls and now big box stores, so there is an effort to bring life back to the core. Finally in London, instead of building office towers, they are building apartment buildings, many of us think if more people lived downtown, it can bounce back.

Anyway, here is the link to the article. They did send a photographer but I don't see the photo there, maybe it will appear later, if it does I will post it.
Oh here it is:

PS today is my birthday, so it's kind of funny that we would be interviewed on our anniversary and it would be published on my birthday!

Happy Birthday! Fun to see a pic of you and your sweetie. I have to admit, I do love living in a city with great public transportation and everything I NEED in walking distance. So great you've been able to do that.

Happy Birthday and well done on the interview.

Having lived in both the city and the country, I think I prefer the country, although I do love visiting big cities for a weekend or longer, but not forever.

Very cool! Nice article and picture, and I hope your birthday and anniversary were both super duper. I'm envious that you can manage without having a car. Your carbon footprint is very small!

Neat article. I love cities and my goal is to live downtown in a city and not have a car. One day!
