Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my…

I am off to Algonquin Park this weekend, with my husband and oldest sister, to Ralph Bice Lake – named after an ancestor of ours.  He was one of the first conservationists of the park.  We will have bear spray in hand as well as a blow horn like the kind used at hockey games.  We will spin yarns around the fire and see who else shows up.  Have a great Labour Day weekend to All Canadians!

    LIONS & TIGERS & BEARS & MOOSE & RAIN & WIND & COLD……We were nice and dry at the cottage; thinking of you especially on Monday morning! Have to admit, the sunset Sunday night was spectacular! There is nothing ANYWHERE like a Muskoka sunset!

  2. Lee Bice-Matheson says:

    We saw the same sunset! Sunday night. It was heavenly. We did smell bear, did not see one. And definitely moose were living around us but so were the loons. Never seen so many. So glad you were ready to send out a search party for us. Ha ha. Happy you enjoyed your time in Cottage Country. Next time try camping in the wilderness. It’s good for the soul. Lee

  3. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  4. Lee Bice-Matheson says:

    If you want to submit to my blog just email me at and I will look at it and let you know if I will post it. No problem. Best of luck. Lee

  5. At last, someone comes up with the “right” answer!

  6. I can’t hear anything over the sound of how awesome this article is.

  7. Unbelievable how well-written and informative this was.

  8. Awesome post! I will keep an on eye on your blog.

  9. One of my pet-peeves is procrastination. In fact, when my husband introduces me to someone he says: ‘I’m the opposite to a procrastinator. If you think it should be done today, Lee has it done several days ago’. And my reasoning is this: if you can accomplish something before it’s due, it leaves time to take care of things that ‘pop up’, thereby relieving undue stress. Good luck with your website! Thank you for writing.

  10. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  11. Hi Lucas: No problems as far as I’m aware of. But if I write original content like a poem I put c2012 for copyright. But anyone can copy off of any website pretty well. WE all just hope people are honest or if they do use your information, they provide a link back to your website noting you are the originator of the material. I’ve had people ask me if it’s okay to post some of my stuff on their website and I’ve said yes as long as I get the referral back to my website. Google picks up on keywords and if it’s not original content the site is downgraded or even blacklisted. Good luck!
