The Lack of Blogging Is Due To A Family Tragedy

Dear readers I am behind on my blogging and I wanted to let you know what has happened. I have a few blog posts already written and ready to post but for the images. The images always give me grief ...

Tomorrow Is Valentine’s Day…

... and I already know that it is either flowers or nothing.  I’ve been told no cards and really I guess after 15 years I shouldn’t be surprised or upset but hey – a girl can dream.  Husband doesn’t read ...

I’ve been arranging my next visit to Toronto and going through the reviews and video footage I still have left to post and edit from my last trip.  I guess the trouble with that sort of thing is that I ...
