OUR SHADOWS TALLER THAN OUR SOUL..

OUR SHADOWS TALLER THAN OUR SOUL..

The year was 1972 and I remember my brother was going to see Led Zeppelin, the coolest band on earth.  Led Zeppelin rolled through my hometown of Montreal that year and I wanted to go.  Of course I was only 8 years old so that was out of the question.  My brother and his friends … Continue reading

TURKEY POT PIE…

Are you still eating turkey two days after Christmas?   Here’s a recipe to get rid of a bunch of turkey at one time – recipe and pictures are from food.com.  Recipe is also for chicken pot pie – I added turkey instead and a few of my own spices as well.   I didn’t … Continue reading

PA RUM PUM PUM PUM….

With all the fuss and running about  – the little drummer boy brings us to the simplicity of Christmas  – a little boy and his drum.  My favourite Christmas carol is Silent Night but the little drummer boy always makes me smile as this was my father’s favourite Christmas song.  Every time I hear it … Continue reading

AND SHE GOES TO BATTLE..

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a blog about my hockey team.  As most of you know I play hockey once a week with a women’s league.   I started last September, never played hockey before and the last time I skated probably was when I was 10 years old.  It was a … Continue reading
