Spring seems to have finally sprung, a bit, in Ottawa and surely warmer weather is coming.  This means golf, gardening, lawn care and cold beer on the deck seasons for me.  Any big plans for spring good reader?  Leave me a comment and tell me about them.  All the best to you and see you here again next week.
