The pride of Toronto Police Service’s Mounted Unit, HONEST ED (left) and TECUMSEH, are being fed by United States Consul-General JIM DICKMEYER outside the US Consulate on University Avenue. Sergeant JIM PATTERSON and Staff Inspector BILL WARDLE look on.
The duo were about to head south to Washington DC, where they’ll join the bands and military units celebrating the inauguration of President Barack Obama on Monday, January 21. The horses were invited by the Michigan Multi-Jurisdictional Mounted Police Drill Team and Colour Guard. Do us proud guys!

JULIA CHILD, ‘the French Chef’ would have been one hundred years old on August 15/2012. Unfortunately, this wonderful woman is no longer with us – but her books, methods, kitchen, videos of old television programs, and Meryl Streep’s spot-on screen impersonation – will live on and on.

In 1991, JULIA CHILD visited TORONTO, met the local star chefs and generally did the town.
Good news if you’re visiting WASHINGTON DC: Julia’s kitchen is reopening to the public at the Smithsonian Institute in November. It will anchor a new exhibit hall titled ‘Food: Transforming the American Table, 1950-2000′.
