~fabulous cupcake workshop at art camp- thanks to visiting guest EMILY DANZIGER This week my art campers have brought me all kinds of laughter and joy. We have had some major chats. The other night I asked them- What [...]
It’s funny how traditions start. Sometimes pinpointing the exact moment is easy and other starting points are bit blurry, with various parties claiming ownership about the origin of the good times. In this instance, it’s pretty simple. My sister’s family [...]
I didn’t grow up going to overnight camp. My parents weren’t too familiar with the concept as they weren’t raised with such opportunities. The local city day camp and Vacation Bible School is where my sister and I were sent [...]
On a hot summer evening, we climbed into a rugged 8-seater Jeep at the hotel. Our host drove us to a quiet location along the SAN ANDREAS FAULT LINE. As you may know, this particular area of California spans approximately 1300 [...]

The so-called “Aerotropolis”. The claim is that businesses want clean land, and there really isn’t that much left in the brownfield
You have heard it but do you do it? Prepare the child for the road not the road for the child. I try to remember it The other morning at art camp, I asked a camper how she slept and [...]
What did you say? Camping? I had no interest AT ALL until a friend of mine said “you’re so fricken’ high maintenance, but I bet you would LOVE Glamping.“ Hmmm….It’s a possibility. I must admit that I’ve been thinking about [...]
You know her as that cheery, bright-eyed children’s television host Patty on CBC. She’s a mom of two beautiful girls and wife to actor Michael Kinney. We had the wonderful opportunity to chat with Patty about what it’s like to [...]
