My main question this year is are any of the inspirational speakers current or former TCHC residents?
This years theme was "Something Different". I'm happy to announce that all my submissions made it into the Scarborough Arts' Big Art Book.
Earth, Air, Fire, Water (1)
Chanel (Lost & Found)
Yup, I actually had a tweet accepted into the Big Art Book! Now I am waiting to hear if either of my first two submission have been accepted as part of the juried exhibition. I'm beyond grateful that all three are being published.
I'm also waiting to hear how my grandsons fared with their Scarborough Arts' Big Art Book submissions. My fingers and toes are crossed for both my boys.

This notice indicates that the TCHC approved vendor Sparkle Solutions is going to be upgrading the laundry card machine to accept new bills with all the additional security features. Well that';s fine and dandy.
Our Sparkle Solutions vending machine is in our lobby. So why are they indicating that our basement level laundry facilities may be shut down for a day or even longer without proper notification?
Sounds to me like TCHC and Speckle Solutions ... (SMH, My bad!) ,... Sparkle Solutions are going to reset all the washer and dryers to charge more money per cycle. I'd be so happy if they proved me wrong. Just sayin.
Toronto, ON - Since her groundbreaking debut, 1964’s It’s My Way!, Buffy Sainte-Marie has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate. Today the innovative artist shares new song “You Got To Run,” a collaboration that features Tanya Tagaq and announces details of Medicine Songs, the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize and JUNO Award-winning 2015 album Power in the Blood. Medicine Songs will be released November 10, 2017 via True North Records.
Buffy Saint-Marie's explains the sentiment behind the new album "... is a collection of front line songs about unity and resistance – some brand new and some classics – and I want to put them to work. These are songs I’ve been writing for over fifty years, and what troubles people today are still the same damn issues from 30-40-50 years ago: war, oppression, inequity, violence, rankism of all kinds, the pecking order, bullying, racketeering and systemic greed. Some of these songs come from the other side of that: positivity, common sense, romance, equity and enthusiasm for life..
"You Got To Run (Spirit Of The Wind)" is the powerful lead single from Buffy Saint-Marie's new album Medicine Songs..
