Second Hand Smoke – A Solution

January 12, 2010 At Home

Fighting a neighbor’s poisonous secondhand smoke can prove a double nightmare in condos, apartment houses or co-ops.

Gratitude Gatherings

January 14, 2009 At Home

I had gatherings at my home for ladies in the community. I did it because I was new to the area and needed some socialization. I asked everybody to bring something for show and tell – a great conversation starter – my favorite was Rose and the hanky she received from her idol Bing Crosby. […]

January 12, 2009 Neighbours
