Coming from across the pond, Turkey is mostly eaten in and or around the Christmas time. Why? It’s a great meal. This year I have had deep fried turkey on several occasions and OMG it’s awesome every time. A bird that is large enough to feed a family for several meals is definitely something not to be sneezed at.

Domestic abuse is not a “women’s issue.”

Deck the Halls… Joy to the World… Silent Night… As we rush around doing our shopping and getting ready for Christmas, we hear Christmas carols and dream of family get-togethers, chestnuts roasting in an open fire, shortbread cookies and all the wonderful sights and smells of Christmas. But do we set ourselves up for failure? Do we have unreasonable expectations of providing an idyllic experience over the holidays?

Recently, as part of Canada150 celebrations, Canada played host to the Invictus Games in Toronto. The Invictus Games provided an opportunity for us to celebrate our veterans and also our serving members from Canada and other nations for their courage and their determination not to be defined by their injuries. As I watched the opening ceremonies, some of the events and the closing ceremonies, I was struck by the strong emotions displayed both by spectators and participants in this event. I was also moved by the efforts of Prince Harry, who initiated this event as a way for injured veterans to demonstrate how they still have what it takes to compete at this level. First established by Prince Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games in Toronto included 550 ill and injured serving members and veterans and 1,100 family and friend spectators from 17 participating nations.

I love the outdoors, don’t you? The smell of the air when it rains, the coolness of a breeze on a hot sunny day. The warmth of the sun on your flesh when you lie down and let the world go by. How amazing it is, this world of ours.

The freshly arrived colours of spring are enchanting, while the sun’s glare in summer captures us in its own unyielding light. Now we are moving into another vibrant time, when the trees and shrubs close ranks to offer a cascade of earthy colours, and we cheerily look on as the changed colour patterns gradually settle into the landscape around us.
