My husband, Zee, and I, have lived in Brantford for 16 months. I grew up in Cambridge, my parents live there. We go to Hamilton (Stoney Creek) three times a week for Zee's dialysis. Some of the dialysis nurses commute to Hamilton as well.
What brought you to Brantford, or is Brantford your home town?
I like it somewhat because it's a little smaller than Cambridge and feels a lot less industrial. We'd rather commute to Hamilton for dialysis, than live in Cambridge and drive to Kitchener. My parents just put a kitchen in their basement, to try to entice us to move in with them, to help them out. And we've finally decided we're staying here for a while, so we spent part of the holidays unloading a storage cube, sitting in Paris, and putting up bookshelves.
Thank you for writing to me!!
Bye for now, kind regards, Jennifer
I saw Mamma Mia twice. Once alone and once with a friend and found it just as funny and entertaining as the first time. I also saw it at the theatre in Toronto a few years ago with a friend.
Yes it does take a little to get around and familiarize with this site but eventually we get the hang of it. I supply as a teacher and E.A as well as work with special kids. I did a rec program in the summer and really need a break.
Hi Maria, thanks for the welcome...I've been reading some of the correspondence and I think that you work with special needs kids...so do I. I am a Spec. Ed resource teacher...this year half time and half time literacy. Looking forward to it...I was feeling burnt out in June but now happy to be going back. I'm surprising myself with my enthusiam.
Over a 1000 people checked the site out and strangley enough only 100 or so are really communicating.
Hmm they dont like typing. They have no opinion. The are busy. They were just looking to see what it is all about.
Looking back I noted the dates of some of the posts. Goodness , should there be at least 50 posting per subject or is everyone on the sidelines just peering in and not participating. What does everyone think on this subject.?
Hello Maria: Sounds like your life is pretty hectic but fulfilling. How long have you worked with special children, it must be gratifying as well as frustrating for you. Seems you have traveled to quite a few places so far. Good for you. I went to Australia in the 80's and loved the people and the places I went but not much since then. Hope to keep in touch!
HI THERE, i WRITE POETRY, SHORT STORIES AND AM IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO WRITE A NOVEL...iT'S CATHARTIC FOR ME. i, ALSO, ENJOY TEACHING AT COLLEGE...MANY NEW IMIGRANTS WHO ARE SO DEDICATED TO LEARNING, IT'S AMAZING.
I, too, have grandchildren in BC, but none here close to home. I miss them terribly, but will see them at Thanksgiving. I work part time as a a lecturer at a local college...rest of the time I write...love to write! I give you your due at working with special needs children, tough work, but worthy. Drop me a line when you have a chance. Liz
