Disclaimer: I will receive a copy of one of the programs offered by PearlMountain Technology for mentioning this Christmas Special on my blog. My opinions are my own, and I only share information that I feel will be of value to my readers. Our house has pretty much gone completely Mac.  So I’m always on the lookout for new programs and apps to use on our Macs. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Publisher Plus, and right now it’s on special when bundled with MacBooster 2. Publisher Plus (regularly purchased at $39.90) is […]

Migraines are Cruel!

Migraines have to be one of the most cruel of all ailments, at least in my experience.   Even before the pain of the headache hits, the effects begin. My thoughts are slower, thicker, jumbled. My eyes feel funny, eyelids get lazy, and an ‘aura’ may appear. Quick movements can cause dizziness or instability, even just quickly moving my eyes. A feeling not unlike motion sickness sometimes comes with it. Then the pain. Sometimes it rises slowly. Sometimes it hits like a freight train. Either way, it’s unbearable. It’s unlike a regular headache… The migraine […]

Stop trying to be beautiful.

I can be honest here, right?  Well, honestly, I haven’t felt very good at looking beautiful for a while now. I have my moments, you know, when it’s a good hair day, my skin cooperates, and my makeup looks great. But day in and day out, I’m just your average 30-something wife & mom. (Nothing wrong with that, by the way!) And we know what it feels like to not be beautiful, right, ladies? We know we’re not beautiful because nobody says, “Wow, you’re beautiful,” or “You really are gorgeous, you know.” Nobody. Ever. I […]

I thought it was zuZily…

Thumbnail image for I thought it was zuZily…

For years now I’ve seen zuzily ads in blog sidebars and recently in my Facebook sidebar as well. You read that right – zuzily. At least, that’s what I always thought it said… Imagine my surprise when I recently took more than a cursory glance at an ad, and saw that it said, “zulily”. zulily. Seriously, I really and truly thought it was zuZily…. OOPS! How weird is that? To have misread something for so long?  I probably misread it the first time and never looked closely enough to change it. Besides, zuzily sounds so […]

Go ahead – Sing at Subway!

go ahead - sing

Kudos to the young twenty-ish guy at the new west side Subway the other day who totally busted out in song while waiting behind me in the sub building line! That was seriously awesome! From looking at you and your buddy when you walked in together, I could never have guessed you’d do something like that. You were carrying a skateboard, and your friend was wearing a toque (stocking cap) even though it wasn’t cold. I don’t know that I had any expectations at all about how you might or might not act.  You were […]

What do you get when you add a super cute exotic pet to a household with a social media manager? A Hedgehog On INSTAGRAM (among other things). Mignonne the Hedgehog has taught me a lot about the fastest-growing social network! What Mignonne’s experience has taught me about Instagram can also be applied to any user or brand, I believe. Search out and engage with a community of users relevant to your heart, your biz, your message. They’re on Instagram. You just have to find them. Use hashtags wisely to expand your audience and correctly categorize your […]

Thumbnail image for Water Emergency in Lethbridge – Plain and Simple

Lethbridge is currently under a Water Emergency. Lots of info is being tossed around. Some big technical words are being used, too. What’s really going on? The statement from the City of Lethbridge is: Post by City of Lethbridge- City Hall.   So… there is a lot of water coming down river because of the recent high temperatures causing a significant run-off of melted snow and ice into the river. Why do we need to conserve water then? Well… the short and simple answer is because our municipal water supply comes from the river, and […]

A Grief Revisited

I needed to look through some old files, paper files, in a folder, in my file cabinet. I didn’t find what I was looking for. But I did find something that I definitely wasn’t looking for. What I found wasn’t lost or missing. It was simply stored away, and finding it surprised me. “It” was a powerful mix of emotions. Opening one particular file reopened a whole pile of feelings and thoughts. The file was full of paperwork, notes, certificates and everything about my Daddy’s death, on Christmas Day 1999. It was also, unexpectedly, full […]

A Potato Parade Just for YOU!

So, this just happened:   Yes, I made a Potato Parade for a friend of mine, in honour of his successfully juicing a potato. Apparently, it was a parade worthy event. I had no idea that you could do that – juice a potato, that is.  Or make a Potato Parade on the internet, for that matter… But, there you go. They both happened! I’m glad he got a chuckle out of the little video. I was definitely amused, myself!
