I Speak English
Posted On 11/16/2014 17:25:04 by kiwibarb
Everyone knows what a complicated language English is, with its “ough” that has such a  variety of different pronunciations. It’s bad enough when you’re brought up with it. How much harder it must be for immigrants who have to learn it. You can’t rely on two words, identical apart from one letter, being pronounced alike, such as cone and gone, or wave and have. It gets worse when legitimate words of English are rendered unacceptable by having more than one meaning. While playing a... Read More

We made our first trip to the city today, after the beautiful week we had in the mountains of British Columbia. We had heard stories from friends and family about the two unusual snow storms that came through Calgary while we were enjoying warm and sunshine days in the mountains (a six-hour drive from home).    I heard about 3000 public parks that were closed because of the fallen and damaged trees, about the request from the mayor to...

Armchair Travel with me ... enjoy the nostalgia!
Posted On 08/13/2014 21:55:48 by yourchoice
I've had trouble slowing down enough this week to get my photos together from our last excusion. This past Sunday, we traveled about 65 miles to the annual Pioneer Acres Vintage Tractor Show. It has been an annual event for 45 years, and is a 3-day event.   If you are interested in doing a bit of "Armchair Traveling", clic on the link below. WARNING: These pictures may stir up some of your own memories ... but for me, having a nostalgia attack from time to time is good for the heart ... and... Read More
