My Favourite Grocery Store in Cambridge

First off, let me say, I don't do the majority of grocery shopping for our family.

My wife Boni, is the pro. She know's she's the pro, and she let's me know it too.

However, probably about once or twice a week, I'm sent out by the boss, for provisions. 

And generally, when I do, I head straight to my favourite Grocery store in Cambridge.

That store is Farm Boy, on Hespeler Road.

I love Farm Boy. It's definitely my favourite grocery store in Cambridge.

It's clean, inviting, and colourful.

The staff (and there are enough of them for the size of the store) are always friendly.

Both those were days when I had dozens or more people working for me in my corporate life.

Premiere Wynne announces that Ontario will fund an $11 Billion Ultra High Speed rail from Toronto through Kitchener and London which is currently served by both VIA Rail and Go Transit. The $11 Billion is just phase one, BTW. The total cost is projected at $20 – 25 Billion. To put that in perspective, that's $1785.00 per capita, per Ontario resident. And that's if it comes in on budget.

She says faster trains will be important to build the high-tech community there, and to help Google, which is currently busing some workers from Toronto to Kitchener.

Tesla Opens Supercharger Station in Cambridge, Ontario

I was driving out of the Cambridge SmartCentres the other day, and I noticed that there was a new section, near the entrance on the North side of Pinebush Road, just west of Highway 24, in the parking lot near the Michaels Store.

Its what Tesla is calling a Supercharger station, for charging electric vehicles.

It's the largest one of these I've seen so far, with about separate15 charging stations.

These stations are designed for Tesla vehicles but it is my understanding there are adapters avaialable for purchase to allow other brand vehicles, such as Nissan Leaf to use Tesla stations.
