Miramichiers turned out in full force to hear the announcement of ACOA’s $80,480 investment into a visitor kiosk and replica of Governor Denys’ trading post.…

So, another reason why I’ve been so busy and neglecting my blogging duties is because ACOA came by the other week and dropped off some cash. YAY!! We love that!! But no, I haven’t been out on a shopping spree — the money was for bigger and better things than my new spring wardrobe. As…

I found this quote that reminds me of a life-changing moment I experienced many years ago. At the age of 19, I landed an awesome job working with a professional ballet theatre touring company and school in downtown Toronto. I arrived with only typing, spelling and grammar skills but I soon learned how to use…

I found this great little tool to help me keep organized. This website publishes a monthly checklist of things to be done during the month to help you organize your home and office. You don’t do them all at once, just a few every week and by the end of the month if you’ve checked…

Life Lessons Until we learn a lesson, we keep getting it again, and again! IF PEOPLE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU If your friends expect you to solve their problems, carry their stuff, clean their mess, buy their lunch, and you keep doing it, it will keep happening. IF YOU KEEP GETTING RIPPED OFF If you…

Crocodile Dundee This morning I came to work looking forward to the day and in good spirits because of the sunshine…until…I opened the door to the office and immediately felt a strange presence.

Last night I visited the Deux Maples Art Gallery. The owner of the gallery, Esther Nye, had invited me to a special exhibit of work by local artist, Colleen Knowles. It was my first time visiting the gallery since it opened, but I can say with all confidence that it certainly won’t be the last.…

Catch of the Day Melanie & I had a great day today! We went to 993 TheRiver and recorded the Mighty Miramichi Business Catch of the Day for the month of March. Usually the guys at the radio station record these ads but we decided to give it a try ourselves and have some fun.…

Before I redecorated my bedroom, across one wall ran a banner that asked the question, “If not now, then when?” It was the first thing I saw every morning and the last thing each night. The reason I strung this banner was to help motivate me in my creative writing. Being a journalist and writing…
