Just the other day, I drove past my little neighbour and she was shooting hoops in her driveway. As sure sign that Spring is here. As we shift gears in the Georgian Triangle we start contemplating gardening, home improvements and Spring cleaning. Tuning up the mountain bikes, sorting out running gear and ‘summer’izing the skis are all on someone’s to do list.
