Thinking about a recent article on Oliver Sacks in the Globe and Mail: famous neurologist renowned for his work on Parkinson's in particular. And for his non-scientific writings too, including reflections prior to his death after he'd received ... Read more

Rebel relaxes a bit???
Friday, February 05, 2016      27 comments

OK then -- didn't mean to imply by yesterday's rebellious blog about mandatory professional education updates that I don't enjoy learning. I do. Read constantly. Engage in professional boards. Prepare stuff for others in relation to t... Read more
Mandatory Professional Education
Thursday, February 04, 2016      26 comments

Coffee
Wednesday, February 03, 2016      28 comments

I'm so glad that some at least of the new research indicates that coffee has health benefits. Because -- and even though many Sparkies here have left coffee behind -- I'm still very smitten. Keurig coffee (flavoured or plain); Columb... Read more
Groundhog Day . . .
Tuesday, February 02, 2016      24 comments

It's mild and drizzly here, lots of puddles. Snow banks have receded, squirrels and birds are pretty active, and Charlie muddy when he comes in from the back yard. The forecast calls for some sun later. Potential, then, for the groundhog... Read more

Balance???
Sunday, January 31, 2016      23 comments

Quite a number of us here -- ONEKIDSMOM, SLENDERELLA and others -- have been writing about balance. And feeling "off balance". To which I can only say, "Me too." Having a hard time staying on track. And feeling motivated. Despite... Read more

Regrets
Friday, January 29, 2016      30 comments

I'm with Edith Piaf: "Je ne regrette rien". Or try, like her, not to regret anything. Regrets, I've had a few, but far too few to mention . . . . Still, yesterday's Yahoo article of five regrets people experience on their deathbeds -- co... Read more
