Nemo Hall, Petrolia, Ontario, during a snowstorm

Nemo Hall - Petrolia, Ontario

Much of Southern Ontario experienced a good old fashioned snowstorm last week. Nice thick stuff that sticks to the trees and makes everything look all pretty and Christmasy. 

Nemo Hall, built in 1878, is the only remaining building of the Second Empire Style in the town of Petrolia. I think it looks timeless in the snow.

8mm Home Movie scanner

 I bought an 8mm/super 8 scanner/editor this week to add to my growing collection of editing tools. 

This one is pretty easy to use so far although some of my reels are too big and I have already had to order smaller ones. Thank goodness I have a time machine and can travel back to the 1960s for parts! Just kidding..but I did find some on good ole eBay.

Here is a sample of some of the films I've transferred so far. Both are from 1962

Photo - VW Bug by Lake Huron

This isn't my car but I wish it was! A white Bug has always been my dream car but after coming across this one I think cream is now my preferred colour.
