We’re Hopeful Canadians!

I don’t discuss politics too quickly as it tends to divide even friends. However, you might be interested in our level of involvement in our Canadian federal elections.

In the previous election I had agreed to have a lawn sign, and act as a scrutineer at our local polling station, on behalf of our conservative candidate, Maurice Vellacott. (I used to go to the same country Sunday School years ago, as his wife, Mary).
So when their campaign office called and asked abou

Renovations – and Trying a Forum

As I indicated last week, I’m going to do a total revamp of the old RoseBouquet section. I’m also putting all the book reviews into the new template or “look.” In fact, yesterday I finished the first introductory article, and you’ll find it in Ruthe’s Roses below.

On the business site, I fussed and fiddled with designing a new

How to Create PODs

I’ve heard the word POD and POD-casting, but usually brush off things that sound like they will cost a heap. However, this morning I followed a link that led to a site with POD creating little movies that broke down the parts, and explained as much as I wanted to take in at one time.

The Kind of Friends I Attract

Dear Readers/Friends,
On the surface, I think there are two kinds of you, and with some over-lapping. As I ponder on this I see coming out of the blurring, a general profile – and yet– yes, with different individual faces. No matter how anyone type-casts us, there are always special details that make us each unique, right? As a rule, I tend to look for the unique details, but just now I’m doing this exercise, and looking for the most common traits in the kinds of friends I attract.

The Christmas Cacti are Finally in Bloom

Last year they disappointed us altogether, but when I called Aunt Margaret she advised to put them out in the cold for a few weeks to give them a shock; then they would bloom. We did, and we had fine, beautiful pink blossoms on all of them for Easter week.

I put them out in the cold sunroom again at the beginning of December, and noticed about a week before Christmas

Online Devotionals and a Brain Storm of Article Ideas

In my hurry last week, I forgot to tell you about the new daily devotional page that is up.
http://Ruthes-SecretRoses.com/Library/dailyDevotionals.shtml In preparing to produce some of my own devotional books, and or blog or web site, I found that there are a number of great online daily devotionals for Christians.

Don’t You Just Love Success Stories?

I do! It’s always inspiring to see how someone has overcome some obstacles in their life, and found a way to turn their lemons into lemonade, or somehow find a good way to make a living. Very often using a passion or a problem they had to deal with on the way. Recently I’ve read several pages full of these success stories of

Aiding Angry Allies

You may have seen this in the Bible; “Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered…” *

Fairly obvious advice, since we all know that an angry person can become violent and hurt us. We have learned over the last decade or two that an abuser or criminal has often a submerged anger.

How we Do a City Trip

We’re interrupting my business schedule again for a couple of days. This afternoon Dad and I are going to see the doctor.

Yesterday we were in Saskatoon for the afternoon and evening. I had a Board meeting at the mission to attend, which happens every other month. When it does, because Dad does NOT like to stay home alone, we go early enough to take a supper over to my brother Tom’s and enjoy a little visit with him.
