My office-mate Alex, created a Chilly day to raise funds for Movember. ( click here to find out more about Movember ) and unless your living under a rock, I'm sure many of you have seen men sporting moustaches this month. What for - again under a rock - to raise funds for Prostate Cancer... why is it important to me...

Because of him :
Richard Primeau -March 15, 1949- April 13, 2008

I lost my father 3 years ago to prostate cancer... he is missed by all who knew him.
Cancer takes anyone, and is not prejudice or bias.
It doesn't care how old you are or where you come from.

SO HUGE round of applause to Alex Scott, and all those who donated to the cause!
and MEN go get your prostate checked! Dont become another statistic to cancer

Here are a few more pics of the day: $600 were raised today!!!

Blast from the past.... in a box

The company that I am working for is about to have their 60th anniversary, while going threw a treasure trove of old products still with they're original packaging, we came upon this box.

I don't know when this was printed or when it was sold, but 10 cents for a chocolate bar.. omg unheard of in todays vocabulary.
I thought it was neat to find this amongst all of our products over the years, how did this box sneak into our fishing gear?

I'd like to find out the date of this box, just to fulfil a curiosity.

New Chapter in the book of life.....

The past four years have been an interesting chapter of my book of life... I have learnt to be a strong independent woman. I became a mother, a daughter who lost her father and loss of many other people in ones life, a divorcee, a motorcycle tattooed mama.   I have made some amazing friendships and have lost some as well..

Soon thou, life is about to make another huge change for me, for the better, and I can't wait to see where it's going to take me.... I'm excited

Those that are close to me know already ..... and soon I will spill the beans to the rest of you...

AFC - new experience

I had the opportunity to be at ringside at an AFC event.
I have always seen events like this on TV, and didn't think to much of it.. yes a bunch of grown men grunting and beating the crap out of each other like kids did after school...

That being said... I have a whole new respect for the sport and it's competitors. What I witnessed threw the lens was amazing drama as well as the best sportsmanship I have ever seen.  After these men beat the crap out of each other, after every fight they would either help each other up, and make sure the opponent was ok. Hugs were given, and thanks for a good fight. Talk of "hey you got me good there" or " are you ok", made me understand why these guys do this.  Yes you want to get your opponent to "tap out", but in the end it's a bunch of grown men having a good time, and enjoying what they like to do...

I do hope I get invited back to take more pictures, I have so much more to learn about this sport, and really would love to be able to capture more then just strength  and ability but also more of the essence of this sport.

Yesterday was Halloween and I had my little one with me this year. We were supposed to go to the Mall then trick or treat around the neighbourhood, but she was so exhausted from the daycare and they're halloween party, that we both decided that a good cuddle time on the couch, have a warm meal, then head out.
We managed to do about a block, and my little one had a full bucket and was happily finished for the evening.  She did most of the walking and I was so proud of her at how polite she was to everyone!!! She even told one lady to have a good sleep! It was so sweet...

In the end Adele was very content with her halloween treasure trove, and we now have treats to last for many months to come!

BTW if your wondering what my daughter was for halloween, good question, she changed her mind a few times, and went from Batgirl, to zombie girl, to combat girl and in the end she decided that being all three was cool!
