I got my driver's license when I was 16, (I drove my mother across Canada from BC to Ontario in 1985, and absolutely loved the drive!) But in the late 90's, I had to give up my vehicle due to some bad investments. From then on, it was bus s... Read more

I have a Walkman but I have not used it in quite some time. In fact I don't think I have seen it since the last time I moved........ My niece is an absolute whiz when it comes to anything computer or computer-like in electronics and I had ... Read more

For two week I have been looking forward to going out today to "harvest" our own potatoes. This group was giving away up to 50 lbs of potatoes to every person. My sister and her husband and I were planning on going. I woke up this mornin... Read more

I would like to move closer to my sister who lives in the north end of the city. Walking distance would be preferable, but even a bus ride would be ok. Just not the 2 & half hour ride I take now when I go to her house after work. If I go ther... Read more

I never know what to "blog" about. I have posted a few blogs, but it usually takes me a long time to write even just one little paragraph, I usually get fed up and go to bed without posting. I don't really know what to say, or how to say i... Read more

Well it is getting down to the crunch, and I don't want to miss a single episode, so guess what? The channel that picked up the show last spring has now gone OFF THE AIR!!!! I was so busy last week that I never turned the DVD on at all, bu... Read more

This has been an exciting summer. It started off with a Bill Gaither and his Homecoming Friends concert in May. One of my sisters came from BC and spent over a week here. While she did not stay with me (I have a twin sister who lives on the o... Read more

Well the long anticipated concert was last night. My one sister felt she could not afford to to make the long trip to Edmonton at this time, so at the last minute my other sister had to find someone else use the ticket, but after asking several... Read more
I hate my kitchen

Who ever designed the galley kitchen for small apartments, must have been someone who had never had to cook a day in his (or her) life except maybe making toast on the occasional morning. I have a tiny little galley kitchen. There is a tin... Read more

P.E. in high school is so cruel on those less gifted in the physical prowess department. I could never do somersaults -- I could never get my head low enough and always ended up rolling onto my my side. Most of the class would line up on ... Read more

I was sitting in the lab yesterday waiting for them to call me in for my doppler ultrasound so was flipping through some magazines. One, called Alberta Caregiver, has the following article and I just had to share. (No author name was given that... Read more
Trouble breathing today.

I have asthma but usually I am fine with it. Since I moved to Alberta, I have been much better. That is kind of surprising because my father had to move to the coast (of BC) to get his asthma under control. However, the extreme heat or c... Read more

Today is Canada's birthday. As a nation we are 142 today (1867) Today is also my (and my twin's) birthday. For some reason, this year I did not dread the day. Maybe because it is not a milestone birthday - just any other birthday day. O... Read more

Last week when I was grocery shopping, I bought a whole pineapple. That might not seem like a big deal to some, but it was a very big deal for me. I never saw a pineapple in the little town I grew up in - at least that I can recall. So ... Read more
