Abandoned Homes in Detroit

Forgive the blog title. Today, my happiness is brought to you by 100 ABANDONED HOUSES OF DETROIT. Some of these houses are gorgeous. I kind of have a thing about the end of the world and abandoned cities for some reason (why I love I Am Legend for the shots of New York grown over…

Strengths Finder

Occasionally I will find a book online recommended on a blog and then go to the Toronto Public Library’s website and put it on hold.
