Design a Valentine on Your Computer

Would you like to learn how to design a valentine on your computer? No art skills required. Just some dogged patience as you learn to use the free software. I use GIMP (Graphical Image Manipulation Program), an open-source software, which means FREE. But I couldn’t quickly find a heart shape, so I opened up Libre-Office […]


A Toonie East Indian Supper

Lest you think I had the most boring weekend you can think of, I should mention that I decided on Sunday to go attend the monthly Indo-Canadian Fellowship’s service at 5 pm, over at Westgate Alliance church. I’d been invited a number of times, but it seemed that on that first Sunday of each month, […]


Thank You Prizes

A fourth quiz answer came in, and I’ve decided not to drag it out any longer. It’s time for thank you prizes. I’ve prepared a selection of portraits of myself, assuming this would be appropriate since this quiz was about me. I will be sending it to those entrants for whom I have an email […]

The Quiz Results Surprised Me

Remember that quiz last week about how well you know me? Hmm! Robin responded almost immediately with good answers to all the questions. Two or three answers were not the ones I had in mind, but they were actually true about me too. One other friend sent a guess at my age. That was all. […]


How Well Do You Know Me?

Most of you are longtime roses in my bouquet of friends, but I wonder how well you know me? Do you recall me writing a few weeks ago about needing to Brand myself for my new marketing ventures? The idea behind Attraction marketing is that one has to win and draw in friends and followers […]


Revised Goals & Agenda

When you have as many goals as I would like to accomplish, you sort of have to be willing to wait for some things.They will come in due time. The Mission’s history book is top priority, and I’m happy to say I’m in the layout stage, and hoping that the pace will quicken; if preparing […]


My Tablet – a Puzzling Toy

About a year ago – maybe a bit more, I had a water filtering system installed by my kitchen sink so I could have pure water to drink and use for cooking, etc. I had mentioned it to a friend, who told her parents. They got the same system install. The company had said that […]

The History Book Inspiring Me

Now this might discourage others, for there have been delays. I know already that I will not succeed by the end of December after all. But that doesn’t mean I should throw in the towel and quit. There were just a lot more things happening in 2007, so it took three evenings to write up […]


Another Banquet & Carol Singing

Last Wednesday I was at the banquet I mentioned, sponsored by my client, MHSS. That was very nice, excellent food, carol singing, and then a trivia quiz that was sort of fun. I knew that my friend Linda, who was there too, had never seen the archives, which are in the basement of the building […]


Christmas Preparations

So what part of Christmas preparations keeps you most busy these days? If you have been reading the RoseBouquet a few years (and I’m grateful for all you long-time subscribers!), you will recall that I don’t bother with a lot of decorations or gift-buying or the many hours of baking that some folks put in. […]
