I'm going out too BC by myself Cynthia, my friends are already out there. Going out together might be doable. I always do the assisted thing when I travel with all my back trouble.…"
"Good morning Cynthia. I hope you got back to sleep. I won't know until sometime in the summer when I;m going. I want to take the train out and they have last minute deals. We're all open to spur of the moment things so…"
"Was that an old message Rocket? I didn't even look at the date. Oh well, I'm glad I sent it just in case.
I forgot you were in the Okanagan. I'm going there in the fall. Friends of mine just moved there.
"Of course Dorothy. Just navigate to Widowed folk on Zoomer's and up on the right hand side you'l see a box that says sign up or sign in. Just sign up and you're in. Welcome. The others will be delighted to see you.…"
"Thank you for those kind words my dear. It just so happens that you both touched on the two things that consume most of my life right now. People have always helped me when I needed it and if I can repay them by helping someone else…"
"Does it have a card in it Cynthia? If it does, you can put it in the card slot (almost every computer has one) and copy them from the card and paste them into a folder (which, if you don't know how to do, I will help you with) in "My…"
"Good evening ladies. Sorry I haven't been on for a while. I didn't realize how long until Cynthia came looking for me.
I think I'll paste my reply to her here so you will know what I've been up to
I think there might just be a very good turn out this year. The powers that be are tying this track with the Chinese Year of the Horse and plan to hold quite a few celebrations and demonstrations to hopefully attract the large…"
"Wonderful news Cynthia. We all rejoice for you.
It's a positively balmy here. Some of the road itself is beginning to show through. If it only holds for another couple of days, maybe we will see the sidewalk. I've…"
"I's -25 here. I had to go out for a doctors appointment or I wouldn't have stirred. As it was I never got there. The car started all right and I got down town and stopped at the bank before going on. When I went to…"

I've been and done a great many things in my younger days, working in politics, ethnic media relations, photography and editing for my husband who was a writer and newsman.
I like to keep my knowledge up and share it with others.
Barbara, Thank you for your kind words. I had a busy day yesterday at Sunnybrook; operation is scheduled for April 19th, then we go from there. Hope you are doing well and looking forward to Easter and springtime.

That would be great, Barb. I'd be happy to cover the mailing costs. I have binders with autographs all organized. Don't know what will happen to them, but maybe I'll pass them along to a Canadian museum or archives. Interesting to look back at them now- I don't have a signed photo of Pearson, but do have one of Louis St. Laurent.
Yesterday I rewarded myself for sandwich making and went to Niagara to play the slots. Twenty dollars went up to 50 and back down to zero! I didn't use your method with the spoon but will try it next time. There are lots of recipes for egg salad and adding a bit of parmesan cheese was yummy. Arranging a platter with sandwiches cut in four is pretty easy,the most time taking part was peeling. I miscalculated the amount of eggs needed and will be enjoying boiled eggs this week! Have a good day Barb.
"Yes, Lynne, it sure would have turned me off from being a homestay forever. But with my great experience with homestay, I would hate to see anyone discouraged. As I sit here preparing for a group of 90 Japanese students from Toyota…"
"In most homestays you do get paid to cover the extra expenses of having another person in your home. It still turns out to be more of a volunteer position and not one to make money. That is how we see it here with our homestays. I forgot to…"
"Chuck, I'll show the link to my husband. FYI, the State Dept program doesn't pay the host family. We paid for her food, utilities, entertainment, cab rides, school field trip expenses -- in other words we paid for the honor of being her…"
"Hello again. I have a solution for you if you care to explore it. Go here and click on "Guests List". Where it says "Select Value", select Japan and then gender. You can get a student directly from Japan or one…"
