11 Things to Keep by the Front Door

When it comes to decorating and organizing, the foyer is often the last place homeowners think to touch. In far too many homes, it’s just a bleak portal for passing in and out of the house without a second glance. And that’s a shame, because the entryway is a prime piece of real estate and, when considered properly, can help make your day a little easier. The key is in keeping certain essentials by the front door where you won’t overlook them on your way out, or establishing an assigned place for everyday items. Here are 11 items that deserve a spot near your front door.

4 Things to See In Canada

ADVERTISEMENT


Canada ranked as the second-best country worldwide in 2017 and 2018, according to US News & World Report. The World Economic Forum also listed Canada as one of the top ten tourist destinations in the globe in the 2013 Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index. These rankings suggest that Canada is an incredible country to visit. And above all that, it’s an amazing country to travel to. Here are 4 things to see in Canada.

1. Whistler

Take some time to visit this town in Vancouver, Canada. Currently, more than two million people visit it annually. It hosts Whistler Blackcomb, which is North America’s largest ski resort. You can enjoy ski-related activities such as snowshoeing, ski jumping, and tobogganing. You can take part in snowboarding and skiing as well, and take the opportunity to climb Blackcomb and Whistler mountains. Visit this quiet town and take your pick of breathtaking sights to see or incredible adrenaline-filled activities to do.

2. Gros Morne National Park

This park lies in Newfoundland, which Canada’s most easterly province, and is on the west coast of the island. It is a marvelous sight to see because it is home to the second-highest mountain peak in Newfoundland. More specifically, it stands at 806 meters, which means that this mountain is over two times taller than the Empire State Building in New York. It is worth noting that the name of the park, Gros Morne, means “large mountain standing alone” in French. You can also see many other things in Gros Morne National Park, including rock formations, waterfalls, and cliffs. These landscapes are so breathtaking that UNESCO designated this park as a World Heritage Site.

3. The CN Tower

The CN Tower is in Toronto, Ontario. In this case, CN stands for Canadian National Tower. Other people refer to it as Canada’s National Tower, and it is 553.3 meters tall, which is even taller than the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Construction of this tower started in 1973 and ended in 1976. Today, it stands as the tallest freestanding structure in the Western Hemisphere.

More than two million international tourists visit this tower annually marveling at its incredible height and design. Many of them enjoy a meal in its revolving restaurant known as 360. Others step on its Glass Floor, Outdoor Observation Terrace, or Indoor Observation Level. The first two viewpoints sit at an elevation of 342 meters while the third one is at 346 meters.

4. The Aurora Borealis

You can watch this sight in Canada’s Northwest Territories because Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territories lies in the auroral oval, the geomagnetic North Pole above which the northern lights appear. This fantastic display of colored lights across the sky is, in fact, a collision of gaseous particles disturbed by a stream of charged particles from the sun’s surface.

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories is the best viewpoint for such an incredible scene. A clear sky for most of the year is the principal reason why people love viewing the Aurora Borealis from here, and there are also lighthouses throughout the city that send alerts to residents when there is an aurora forecast.

Jon’s Final Words Changed Everything on ‘Million Little Things’

Moving on isn’t easy – in fact, it may seem impossible for the Dixon family. Jon’s (Ron Livingston) wife, kids and best friends attempted to move forward during the Wednesday, October 3, episode of A Million Little Things. While it’s not easy, at least they have each other.

The episode picked up the day after the funeral, with everyone gathering at Delilah (Stephanie Szostak)’s house for breakfast, to make sure she wasn’t alone. However, the tension with Eddie (David Giuntoli) was still in the air, and they struggled to keep it hidden throughout the episode. It didn’t help that it was Sophie’s father-daughter recital and her dad had just died. When she needed someone to stop in, she chose Eddie.

Of course, Delilah thought it was a horrible idea, especially after she found Eddie’s necklace in Jon’s bedside table. Clearly, he had known about their affair. Eddie didn’t want to step aside because he felt he had to be there for Sophie. However, he froze just before it was time to perform, passing the baton to Rome (Romany Malco). Rome, who has continued to suffer with his own suicidal thoughts and even went back to the spot Jon took his own life, stepped in perfectly. It may have been because Jon had been coming to him for help … or he was teaching him the dance moves because he had planned the suicide.

While waiting for the dance to begin, Eddie listened to Jon’s voicemail (even though he told his friends Jon didn’t leave one). “Hey it’s Jon. I was hoping to speak to you, not just leave you a message,” his best friend said on the message. “I just need you to do me a favor: love each other.”

However, that wasn’t Jon’s only surprise. He had also left the restaurant to not just Regina (Christina Moses) but also Delilah – something his wife didn’t even know, even though he’d been talking about buying the restaurant for a year. He assistant Ashley (Christina Ochoa) played coy when delivering the news, assuming that she had known. Little did she know, Ashley had opened the folder that Jon had left to his wife, the folder she never even gave to Delilah.

Inside was a goodbye letter that included the following phrases: “There’s an envelope behind the painting; Ashley had no idea I was going to do this; ask her what she’s doing, as I don’t want you; doesn’t know what you know, she will be protected.” Ashley found Jon’s life insurance plan behind the painting, which revealed his primary beneficiaries were Eddie, Rome, Gary (James Roday) and a mystery woman named Barbara Morgan.

Elsewhere in the episode, Gary and Maggie (Allison Miller) continued to get closer while she pushed away a man from her past — maybe even a husband? — and admitted that even though she had cancer for the second time (something she’s still hiding from Gary), she’s happier than she’s ever been.

When Gary wasn’t with her, he was spending time with Jon’s son, Danny, who was questioning his sexuality and wondering if he was to blame for his dad’s suicide. In a touching moment, Gary told Danny that if his dad did know that his son was gay, he would love him even more, just like Gary did.

A Million Little Things airs on ABC Mondays at 10 p.m. ET.

If you or someone you know is in emotional distress or considering suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
