Originally known as Gravelly Bay, Port Colborne dates from 1832 and was renamed after Sir John Colborne, a British war hero and the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada at the time of the opening of the new southern terminus of the First Welland Canal in 1833. Port Colborne is one of Canada's largest inland ports and is home to one of the original Dairy Queens. Drop in to shop, dine, stay or just enjoy the Lock 8 Gateway Park while watching lakers & salties pass through one of the longest canal locks in the world.
Any Little Problems?
Our school had just installed a new air-conditioning system, and a representative from the company wanted to make sure it was running smoothly. Poking his head into an empty classroom, he asked the teacher, "Any little problems here?"
"No," she said, smiling. "All our little problems have gone home."
There was a typo on a test I was taking. Instead of "(D) none of the above," it said "(D) one of the above." So I circled it.
