VIMA 2015 Country Recording Of The Year!

Hub City Ramblers picks up country award.


We are so pleased that the Hub City Ramblers picked up the VIMA 2015 award for Best Country Recording!

Congratulations. Woohoo!

We featured the Hub City Ramblers in January 2015 on our Tunes For Tuesday. Oh wait! That makes us two for two. We must have good taste!

Check out the Hub City Ramblers for yourself. Listen to some great tunes. Buy one of their cds. 

Now that's what we call buying local!



A Spectacular View With A Side Of Dinner

Comox Marina.

My friend Laurie suggested I take a break and go out for dinner.

So I went to the Black Fin Pub in Comox last night. What a view they forced me to look at while eating dinner!
The braised beef I had was not too shabby either. 
PS. Laurie, see that little bit of snow on the mountains? That's all the snow I need, baby! Have fun ice fishing this weekend.

I just had to share this with all my Westies!

Jennifer McLean, of McLean Masterworks, has just released her latest book, The Business Procrastination Buster. One of the best things about it? It's free. 

But that's not all. Once you download her book, you can register for Jennifer's three day business workshop. Again, FREE! 

If you like Jennifer McLean, like I do, here is an opportunity to gain valuable information. The only cost is your time.

Oatmeal Cookies

Rainy days call for cookies and milk.


There is just something about stormy days that draws me to the kitchen to bake.

My modified oatmeal cookie recipe ( which translates to things I ran out of ), is now my new favourite!

Besides, with the coconut oil, almonds, oats, cranberries, and walnuts, they are good for you, right?! They taste like they are good for me.

Better eat two. Okay, maybe three.
