The Kingston Penn

178 years is the length of time that the Kingston Penn has been open.  Wow, that’s a great many life time sentences and more.  It is closing today as reported by all news agencies and it caught my  attention for we have a family connection to the “belly of the beast” as it is named….

401 Closed eastbound

Last Friday we drove to Ottawa…the 401 ended up being closed east of Kingston.  That meant a very slow drive along what should be the quick way to get to the Nation`s Capital. But instead of 100km/hr…only 7! Slow….very slow!
