Our Voice

One of the challenges of fall is that, in addition to finishing up all those to-do projects that were supposed to be finished by labour day weekend (like my basement reno!), it’s the time of year to be planning for winter weather. And for homeowners, that means weatherproofing and insulating our homes so we can stay warm, snug and keep a lid on our heating costs through the coming blustery months.

My checklist includes

Well gardeners, it’s that time of year again!  Whether we like it or not, it’s time to start thinking about readying our gardens for the “W” season (I just can’t bring myself to say that word yet).  It’s been such a glorious autumn that thinking about this is almost painful, but if we want our gardens to be even better next year…and what gardener doesn’t?, we have to do a few things. 

You spent all morning wrestling with the latest version of word processing software to create and fine tune your résumé. Then you spent all afternoon searching the Internet for job postings or tracking down contact information for companies you’d like to apply to. Now you’re ready to grab the bull by the horns and get those résumés out!

Remember when September meant going back to school, and you were walking around full of apprehension and excitement waiting to see what the year would bring? You absolutely HAD to have new clothes, a new haircut, and lots of new school stuff. Anything to show that you were not the same old you; that this time the summer had changed everything.

But you’re older now, and that’s all over and done with…right?

Personal transformation never really ends.

Now the kids are back in school for another year, are you wondering what to do with your children for those few hours before and after school while you are at work? Is your child expressing an interest to stay home alone instead of going to an organized before and after- school program or a babysitter? How do you know if your child is ready for this new responsibility?

Welcome to the “Living with Technology” blog!

I’m thrilled to be the first poster for this blog and look forward to reading all the other posts that follow. Technology has always been a bit of an addiction for me. I often find myself wandering around stores like Future Shop or reading a gadget blog to see what’s new, and wondering if these things would make my life easier or just more complicated. (Usually the latter, but sometimes I get lucky!).

I’ve been to meaning to clean out the garage for a while now (alright, sixteen years) but something about the fall always rekindles that yearning for a sense of order, the satisfaction of knowing that all-things-summer are safely stowed away, before we hunker down for winter.

But where to start?
