Port Perry became Hemlock Grove

This is about a month old, but I have a bunch of neat pics from when the Hemlock Grove crew came to town and transformed Port Perry's Queen St.

Stars of the show 
While Famke Janssen and Lili Taylor weren't around (as far as I could see), we spotted a few of the stars, including Bill Skarsgard.

And we were always happy to watch Terra Nova while it was on. Instead of being busy filming any new episodes of that, Landon Liboiron was filming for Hemlock Grove.

I'm not really sure who this is. I'm only guess it could be "Penelope Mitchell";

Downtown was transformed, and the familiar locations were refaced, including our local CIBC;

 The Home Hardware was transformed into Easter Valley hardware.

The Hardware Feed is really Port Perry's Car Quest Auto Parts;

 Downtown's Post Office of course had to be fixed to look like a US Post Office;

 The ReMax office was turned into a simple realtor.

Palmer Park was fixed up to fit the town's new nom de plume.

  The buildings were fixed up, too. This was really well done - looked genuine.

Local celebrities 
A local celebrity survived the casting couch and will be in the show, as far as we can tell. The White Feather Farms and Country Store's chicken truck took a trip down main street during filming. 

Production crew
Here are a few random shots of the set and production crew.


Sullivan on set - his first taste of show biz.

Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
Reasons I chose them over the others:
1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
How did they do it
1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
My Experience
I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob,

sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
