Flowers for Mother's Day

Hi Folks:

Victorious Voices Returns!!

Hi Folks:

One of the ‘challenges’ of living in Victoria is that it’s such a culturally rich, diverse place to be that there are times we want to befriend Hermione Grainger. We’re sure she’s a lovely young woman, but our ulterior motive would be to see if we could borrow […]

Hello, Dear Reader:

Being Christmas eve and all, it seemed like an appropriate topic for today. This ‘He Says, She Says…‘ post is going to be primarily a ‘He Says’, and it’s likely to be our last blog post of 2010, so I’ll add in a greeting from Marcia as […]
