It’s hard to think of a more versatile fall vegetable than sweet pumpkin. Whether you spoon it out of a convenient can or roast and mash a small sugar pumpkin, this superb squash can star in a wide range of dishes beyond your annual Thanksgiving pie. And while you can’t use big jack-o’-lantern pumpkins for recipes — they’re too watery and stringy for cooking — you can carve them up and turn the seeds into a tasty snack.

Thick hair needs some of your extra attention, and there are certain hair care nuances, you should take into account.

October 1 October 7, 2018 is Meals on Wheels week.

Rotary Club of Fonthill in partnership with the Welland Pelham Chamber of Commerce hosted a Meet and Greet for all candidates running for Council,  Regional Council, School Boards and Mayor on Tuesday night at the Fonthill Legion followed by an informative debate with the three Mayoral Candidates.

With the doors barely open, they were little more than a blur, pint-sized flashes of lighting zigged while others zagged. Last one in was a rotten egg.

They pitched screams of excitement, releasing the uninhibited laughter found exclusively in children; they were experiencing moments of joy in its purest form.

Older men looking for hairstyles may feel limited by their options. Fortunately, there are plenty of short and long hairstyles for older men – even those with grey hair, thinning hair, or a receding hairline. For example, hairstyles for men over 50 with salt and pepper hair include side parts, brush ups, the modern comb over, or even buzz cuts. Any of these classic styles and cuts would look great for mature men – it’s just a matter of styling and being confident in your look.

Meaty mains dominate the summer grilling season, but these veggie sides will give them a run for their money.
