Visual Word Of The Day – Stentorian

29 Oct

Stentorian – \sten-TOR-ee-uhn\ , adjective;


Extremely loud.

This is actually a part of an amazing art exhibit located on Leona Dr. in North York. The exhibit is called the Leona Project and it is a part of Toronto International Art Fair. The exhibit is a Biography of the area that has been known as Willowdale, Lansing and Newtonbrook, located in North York. For more information on the Leona Project, please visit the site

I will also post some other pictures from the exhibit, but if you get a chance, you should really see it for yourself before it closes on Saturday. It’s quite the piece of work.

While the Car never really crashed into the window of a small bungalow on Leona Dr. had it, the whole thing would have been a stentorian experience.

Nathan Alexander McIntyre- 1 Month

16 Oct

Nathan may be the cutest 1 month old i know right now, but then again, I could just be a little biased. Even still, I doubt you’ll find a baby who is as laid back and easy going as he was in these pictures. Here’s hoping that carries into adolescence and beyond.

Only by great strain could I descry my wife as she sped away toward Turkey dinner. Who would get a ticket quicker? Her doing 130 or me taking a picture of it? Of course either would require being descried by the O.P.P.

Visual Word Of The Day

8 Oct

If you are familiar with you are aware of the word of the day. Simply put they give you a random, and rarely used word along with it’s definition and a few uses. I thought it might be fun to try and conceptualize the words on days that I can find/make the time. Since I have an hour for lunch, I hope to do so somewhat regularly. We’ll see.

Today was difficult for a couple of reasons, one was the difficulty of containing my giggles (I’m such a 12 yr old boy) the other was hopping in front of the camera. Unlike Right Said Fred, I am not a model.

\TIT-uh-vayt\ , transitive and intransitive verb:


To make decorative additions to; spruce.

intransitive verb:


To make oneself smart or spruce.

The glasses and deep thought clearly titivated Jay’s appearance.

Grammatical corrections are welcomed.
