Just a five minute walk from the High Park subway station, the new splashpad (finished in 2016) at High Park sits beside the older wading pool and playground.
The spashpad is terrific. There are several different splash pad features – see pics – operated by two buttons. There is also a water jug refill station. Sadly no public toilets on site. Lots of trees and shrubs around if needs be.

For years iOS has had a ‘system-wide’ font size option that allows you to set a font size of choice. Apps that support it will use the larger font size. Of course virtually no apps ever did support it and my aging eyes have been yearning for the larger screen Android’s out there.
I have had iOS 7 since August but didn’t know about its ‘new’ Dynamic Type option until today. Many apps have updates to be compatible with iOS 7. Flipboard recently included a feature that allowed the user to set a preferred font (Yay! Made it usable). Well, when Flipboard updated itself, it popped up a message that said “We see that you had set a font preference, from now on we will be using your system wide Dynamic Type preference”. Say what?

The new Dynamic Type setting (see image) gives you a much broader array of font sizes to choose from. So, I set it to quite large.

I bought a brick for the Twit Brick House and received this Certificate of Appreciation:
Making of the Old Spice ‘I’m on a Horse’ Commercial
Leo Interviews the writers/creators of the wildly successful ‘I’m on a Horse’ Old Spice commercial. They explain, step by step, how Isaiah Mustafa got from the shower to the horse.
Immediately after Roger Federer won his record-setting 15th grand slam title at Wimbledon 2009, this amusing Nike commercial ran congratulating him. It features John McEnroe, Serena Williams, Michael Jordan, Pete Sampras, and Tiger Woods.
Sorry for the TiVo bloops at the beginning. This is my second YouTube video. I don’t know how to edit videos yet.
Can someone point me to a free video editor that is easy to use and works with Windows 7?
