Quick Hits - Monday October 15th

Now that all the holidays and Elections are out of the way, we can get back to somewhat of a normal schedule again. (until the next Election or holiday!)

1. 48 Hour Flick Fest - a great idea that the Windsor International Film Fest has made happen in a very short period of time.

3. Council Agenda for the week of the 22nd - certainly a full agenda. Much more to come on this.

4. Thanks to Windsor for Sunday night's recipe. Simple but delicious. Beats the hell out of opening a box of Kraft Dinner.

7. Shameless plug for a friend. Theatre Windsor's "Hide and Seek" - October 18, 19, 20, 21 and 25, 26, 27, 28, 2007. Support your local theatre!
