Swim lesson registration frustrations

For years, parents have dreaded signing their kids up for swimming lessons. The existing system is slow and incapable of easily handling the volume of people registering when that opens. Starting last night and into this morning, I've received and seen multiple reports about the time and effort spent on trying to get the kids into aquatics programs.

The invisible car-less

When Natalie and I were in our twenties, we shacked up. Our first place together was a one-bedroom apartment at Julian and Wellington in the heart of Wellington Village. Fortunately, in the mid-90s with two entry-level incomes, affordability was less of a concern than it is now and we could afford a place pretty much anywhere we wanted to be. Our decision was driven almost exclusively by transportation.
