Let the Great Experiment Begin!

So LB and I sold our car last week. It was a good car, but we have decided to live car-free for a while and see how it goes. We found that we were only using it once or twice a week, and couldn't justify the maintenance, insurance and gas costs associated with it. We're a few days in, and it's working well so far. We're lucky {well it was a conscious choice, so not much luck involved} that we live in a fabulous neighbourhood where we can walk to a farmers' market, organic butchery, three grocery stores, lots of shops, and many of Ottawa's best restaurants. LB has a 10 minute bike ride to work, and I a 45 minute walk/bus combo or a 25 min bike ride.

The real challenge will be winter - so cold and no excuse to jump in the car rather than walk...we're both really excited though!

The Emmy's were so bad. I felt bad for the producers. I am sure they are being escorted out of the industry today.
