Last time I will talk about my hubby and his birthday...:)

My eldest gave her Dad a 3 month subscription to www.ancestry.ca and the 1st night he tried it he couldn't figure out how to unlock information. But once he did we couldn't get him to put it down.

Turning 40...are you truly over the hill?

February 20th, 2012
This past weekend my husband turned 40 and he wasn't too happy about it. Somehow 30 came and went without much fuss, but 40 seems to have so much more meaning....why?

I always say you are only as old as you feel, I certainly don't feel old at 37 and cannot imagine that 3 years is goin ...

Every morning as I get ready for work my husband has the Ellen show on TV in the background and Thursday's show caught our attention for 2 reaons. 1st of all Ellen shared the story of a fellow Canadian in need of a double lung transplant. The second reason it caught our attention was because a member of our family actually became an organ donor almost 2 years ago now. Organ donation is someth ...
