If I Sound a Bit Hurried –

If I sound a bit hurried today, it is because I have a full agenda with extra events to attend. Am I ever thankful that my health has improved considerably over the weekend, and I feel more up to my usual strength and energy. On Saturday I did feel a little “off” and had a […]


My Aunt Helena Martens

My Aunt Helena Martens died last week too, but that was in Kelowna, BC. (I hope you don’t get depressed if I tell you this story too; besides, Gra’ma Kroeker always said that deaths come in threes in one’s own circle of acquaintances.) Aunt Helena was the middle one of Dad’s three sisters. I always […]


Tips for Sinus Issues

A subscriber to my monthly ezine, Aloe Vera Tips & Solutions, has sent me a long list of wonderfully simple and natural remedies. Some to do with shingles, but there are a number to do with sinus issues or problems. I’ll share some of these with you here, thanks to Bob Malone. Fungus is the […]


What My Doctor Said

I’m just back from my doctor’s office. Thought I’d hold this RoseBouquet up until I could report what my doctor said. She is my regular physician as of July, but she had not been available week before last, so I had to fill her in on this saga. She was pleased with how the shingles […]

Singing Numbers Instead of Notes

Are you musically inclined or well informed? Have you ever heard of people singing by numbers (1 to 7) instead of notes? On the MHSS weekend, we had a guest speaker from Edmonton who is a musicologist. That is, he studies and teaches the history of music. Wesley Berg also leads choirs, and plays organ […]


Buying a Second-hand Camera

Sigh! Another educational experience last week was about buying a second-hand camera. I had dropped the one I had used now for a number of years. The lens was extended, and now will not go in our out. So the camera refuses to work. I like to take some photos to go with the report […]


My “Organ Recital”

When you spend a lot of time with seniors, you will hear Organ Recitals quite often. These are not musical performances. Rather a description of what is wrong with their various bodily organs. The only musical instrument I play is a radio, and I generally refrain from giving “organ recitals”, however, today that is all […]
