I have an invite today for a belated birthday dinner at a friends' home, a good cure for the end of February "shack whacky" blahs. Four weeks until the official beginning of Spring and we are all feeling like we need to be sprung! So I'll thro... Read more

The chorus I am part of is preparing two selections for a concert on April 22, we will be one of ten choirs and the others have many more years of experience under their belts. So be it, we will do our best and enjoy the moment. Our selections... Read more

Day #48- A new direction
Monday, February 12, 2018      2 comments

I watched the film "What the Health" last evening, extremely sobering and unsettling, enough to make me take stock of my present vegetarian diet and make some changes. My fridge has now been emptied of all dairy and eggs and in the process I fo... Read more
Day #47- Returning to calmness
Sunday, February 11, 2018      0 comments

I am still hugely unsettled by the outcome of a trial, still feel shame and horror that so much divides us. I truly feel that we are all better than that. It is cold and rainy here but rain doesn't need to be shovelled! I suited up and walked... Read more
Day #46- Struggling to find happiness

My family got our first TV in 1960, I was 13. It was also the year when we got our first car, up to that point we rode in the farm 1/2 ton. This wasn't out of the ordinary in rural Alberta at that time, farmers spent their spare money on equip... Read more

Eating my lunch by the dining room window and a black capped chickadee crashed into the glass and fell to the ground. Askew, twitching, eyes blank, damn! By the time I got outside it had partially rolled over but was really not responding to i... Read more

MARINGAL has an excellent no BS blog, her message can be summed up as "if you won't pull on the oars then get off the ship". If you want to lose weight and get fit and healthy then committ to doing the work; plan, execute and track and then do ... Read more
