Sugar and Heart Disease

This post is as much a “REFRESHER” for me as it is an informative bit of information for my readers. During Covid-19 I have been leaning into more sugary treats. I’m not alone when I confess this. Sugar is a “comfort” food that is easy to love and get hooked on. It’s basically a drug. […]

A Collective sigh!

I am a Canadian, and proud of it. Most of my life has involved a connection with the United States of America, from relatives who reside there, to our family travels there, to purchasing goods from the US, to spending our retiring winters there.

Is it ignorance or fear?

Why are there people out there who don’t seem to care one little bit about COVID-19? They seem to be oblivious to the fact that our world, the entire world is in the middle of a very serious “pandemic”. It angers me when I watch some Canadian news stories, but mostly I see it in […]
