Now that we are in the throws of summer, I thought I'd let you know what fun things there are to see, do and eat in Hamilton for those that can't get away as often as they may like.
For those days that are just too hot to be outside, I highly suggest checking out the amazing Art Gallery that we have in Hamilton!
There is currently a wonderful exhibit by Vivian Maier, a street photographer, that shouldn't be missed. Here's a little preview and more information for you: Vivian Maier Exhibit

Farmers' Markets Ontario
Regardless of where you live, I'm sure you'll find a Summer market near you! Supporting our Canadian farmers has never been more important than it is now.
Even if you're en route to the cottage, check out areas along the way and see if there is a market to stop off at and load up your car with fresh fruits and veggies!
Here's a very extensive list of the 180 Farmers' Markets part of the Farmers' Markets Ontario Group. Stock up while everything is at it's peak. You won't be disappointed! Farmers Markets Group
Changes to Hamilton's Recycling
Recently, there have been changes to what you can and cannot recycle in the City of Hamilton. Do you know what those changes are? This is for the blue box recycling program. The City of Hamilton website should help you out if you're not sure. One of the biggest changes is that you can no longer recycle 'black' plastic containers. Put all your bottles, cans, cartons and jars into one blue box and put all your paper and cardboard into a different blue box. Throw the items loosely into the blue box and don't bag it! Check out here for more details as it can be very confusing.
Especially if you don't have an air conditioner!
1. Think Cotton! Clothing and Sheets, Cotton is the way to go. It's breathable and lightweight.
2. Place a bowl of ice in front of a fan and let the cool air fly!
3. Put your sheets and/or pillowcase the freezer for a few minutes before you go to bed. May be best to wrap them or bag them so they don't get wet.
4. Fill up a 'hot water bottle' with cold water to use as a cold compress.
5. Have an 8 oz glass of water before bed to keep you hydrated which will help to keep you cool.
6. Keep lights off and curtains closed for a few hours before bed to cool off the room.
7. Heat rises so sleeping on a lower floor will be cooler.
8. Keep your feet cool. Put cold clothes on them before bed to cool your entire body.
9. As much as you love someone, you'll both be cooler in the heat if you give each other some room.
The REALTORS Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) reported some areas of the city have increased in sales such as Hamilton West, Dundas, Grimsby and Dunnville.
