Benefits of a cool, wet summer

  This rainy summer has certainly been one for the memory books. I didn’t mind the rain and the temperate days where I could go for walks around the block without dying of heat or thirst from a scorching sun. It was refreshing to sleep with the bedroom window open and feel a cool breeze [...]

Time to book winter vacation

This is the time of the year when I start to dream of faraway places, warm weather, cold drinks, short skirts, soft breezes, slow music, fresh fruit, green salads, crisp fish, long days and longer nights.

My aunt is Betty Crocker

Many of us have that one distinguished relative who becomes legend in our family trees for a variety of reasons. There are the uncles who could drink the entire neighbourhood under the table, the grandmother who knit 250 pairs of mittens for a local school or the cousin who travels the world for 10 years [...]
