“A Place For Men” (Oc­to­ber) has en­cour­aged me to try to start a lo­cal Men’s Shed Group. Re­tired men usu­ally miss the ca­ma­raderie of work­ing with oth­ers. Be­ing re­tired, I still get to­gether with fel­low past work­ers, do wood­work­ing, vol­un­teer at a ra­dio show at Trent U and go to lec­tures on ag­ing. How­ever, I still would like to form a group to build things to sell to pos­si­bly help out the needy all over the world. Thanks so much for a heads-up on this group. —Ken Spry, via email Arlene Stacey’s “No Place Like Home” (Oc­to­ber). While de­scrib­ing your per­sonal jour­ney, you re­flected the pride and per­son­al­ity of New­found­lan­ders in a fun and easy­go­ing way. I loved New­found­land, and though I have no rel­a­tives there, I, too, feel a re­la­tion­ship to the lo­cals I’ve met. —Toby Saltz­man, via email
