Death Valley
This morning we went on a studio tour of Warner Brothers. I'd forgotten just how many of my favourite cartoons, movies and TV shows they make.

Edmonton Queen
I volunteered to cook eggs royale for everyone this morning. I hadn't realised how difficult it would be to poach eggs for seven people at once but they turned out good. We then went for a ride do...

We helped my Mum connect with some of her Canadian friends on Facebook a while ago and this morning we met up with her old high school friend Sylvia, who she hadn't seen in almost 30 years.
