One of the facts of my life is that I still live with a school-year mentality. Working at a university does that to you.

Like many people, I’m interested in lots of different things. It makes my reading of online news and newspapers quite diverse. In one moment I’m into a comprehensive piece about Brexit and in the next, a recipe on summer ratatouille (make it, it’s delicious!).

I do have some thoughts in the works to help me create a space for this blog in my life and more of my life… Continue reading Happy Holidays
Happy Valentine’s Day..hope you’re loving something today. This quote brought me right back to my childhood with Sharon, Lois & Bram signing this song. Did you know them? They were amazing!
