WHY GREAT WEB COPY IS ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND CONNECTING WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS

I have worked in health care for a number of years as a Medical Office Assistant.  The health care system, as just about anyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows, is stretched and strained.  The people that work in healthcare can be overworked, tired, and unhappy, and often forget that they are dealing with […]

GOT 2B MOUSSE AND HEAT SPRAY

I’m a Leo, and I love to keep my mane looking fabulous.  When I have a good hair day, it gives me a boost and I feel pretty damn good.  But, hell, the amount of money I was spending on hair products was ridiculous!  I dreaded running out of more than a couple of products […]

DATING IN VICTORIA … AN EXERCISE IN FUTILITY?

I moved to Victoria 14 years ago.  I was barely 30, and filled with excitement and exuberance about my new life on the West coast.  I had a fantastic job, as well as a world of possibilities, waiting for me.  I had heard about Victoria’s nickname, home of “the newly wed and nearly dead”, but […]

Wine night with a hot Italian

What is better than a great wine and a great friend with whom you can be wholly yourself?
That was how my work week morphed into a sunny, tranquil Friday evening. 
Leaving behind the screeching phones and the clack of keyboards, I headed to Langford for an evening of good company with my lovely friend, Gwen, […]

How do I know if I should do something in life?

How do I know if I should do something in life?  If it scares me.
New experiences are out of my comfort zone.  Period.  They are never easy for me.  But I keep doing it.  And it gets a little easier each time … I think.   But what keeps me pushing?  What compels me to experience […]

Wisdom from Oprah Winfrey

The following showed up in my Facebook today.  The timing was perfect for me, and an excellent reminder that I am worth being treated with love and respect, and that I should never, ever settle.  I felt compelled to share it.
HEAR WHAT OPRAH WINFREY HAD TO SAY ABOUT MEN :

Spanish tapas and wine

Have you ever noticed that adding in a glass of wine to the simplest evening or get together makes it feel a little more special?  The time, the skill, the knowledge and experience behind creating a great bottle of wine is truly astounding.  I still haven’t become accustomed to the perceived decadence of ordering an […]

Movies that ignite my lust for travel

Nothing can get me lusting for a plane ticket in my hand like a good travel themed movie.  It transports me to places far and exotic and pulls me under its spell, even though I`m sitting in my own living room, in my sweats, and a cat half sitting on my head.  Yes, sexy stuff.

Wine of the week – why French wine is definitely not plonk

My second reviewed wine is another red.  Why?  Because it’s winter.  Because red is complex and bold.   Because it paints my tongue a lovely shade of purple.  And because it explodes in my mouth and coats every crevice with flavour.
I have 3 friends here tonight to help me with my tasting.  Ok, Rebecca is drinking gingerale, but […]
