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. We have friends who live there, and I have two sisters […]

Proud & Grateful Canadian

It’s that time of year when we celebrate all that we are thankful for, usually with family and friends around the dinner table full of delicious traditional roast turkey and pumpkin pie. This Thanksgiving is going to be quite different for most of us as we continue to live through the Covid-19 pandemic. I never […]

A Different kind of Mother’s Day!

No less important….actually, I think even more important…..but celebrated today in a very different way than we have been accustom to for generations. There is no special family gathering to celebrate Mom. There is no Sunday brunch at her favourite restaurant to celebrate Mom. Mother’s Day is a really important day at the best of […]

South of the Border!

I’m not one for getting into political conversations but I do pay attention to what is being said and what is going on out there in the world. Let’s face it, what happens in our neighbouring country affects us here in Canada too. This article below was sent to me by a family member. I […]

CONSPIRACY THEORY OR POSSIBILITY?

BEFORE I PUBLISHED THE WRITING BELOW, that I received from a friend during this CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, I did some digging. I did not want to be sharing anything that was completely wrong. I’m not saying that the writing within the framework is right either. It is interesting when you do the statistical comparisons. After doing […]

Home 40 days and 40 nights!

Just like the title of the 2002 romantic comedy movie “40 Days and 40 Nights”….this is where we are with our time since getting home from the USA. We quarantined for 14 days and then continued to stay home as per our BC health minister Dr. Bonnie Henry’s mandate. We just hit the 40 day […]
