Paprika Recipe Manager

Way back in 2008, I wrote a column for the Fernie Fix on finding recipes online. I wrote about Epicurious, Foodnetwork.com, and Allrecipes.com, all of which are still extremely popular. I made mention of a couple of recipe programs for your computer, but the thrust of the column was on finding recipes.

Coriolanus

Coriolanus is a good movie with wonderful performances from first class actors. It may be based on an old Shakespearean play, but it is still very engaging and is definitely worth a look.

Boosting Life Insurance

If you’re a Millennial – born between 1981 and 1996 – you’re either in the very early or relatively early stages of your career, and as the old song goes, you’ve got a lot of living to do. Still, it’s not too soon to think about a financial issue you may have overlooked: the need for life insurance.

My Poem

“What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music...And people flock around the poet and say: “Sing again soon” that is, “May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be fashioned as before, for the cry would only frighten us, but the music, that is blissful.”

Backcountry Winter Safety

More and more people visiting Fernie during the winter are drawn to spending time in the amazing backcountry, whether on skis/snowboards, snowshoes or a snowmobile. The current global health challenge is likely to increase further the numbers of people looking for socially-distanced recreation in the wilderness.

Community Self-Care

We all need to hear these simple words: You are accepted—loved and supported and welcomed. The underlying story is that some people still have a harder time finding acceptance than others.

Peggy Black

Looking at art online has been an immense inspiration for me and when travelling abroad, David and I are drawn to modern art galleries. I am inspired by cleaner, more simple images set in modern frames, and this is reflected in my work. I am constantly surprised that my creations which begin with an idea from a previous image end up as an entirely different work of art.

Taking Time

This month I was lucky to interview local mama and registered nurse, Leilani Levesque. A woman who I look up to and who always comes to mind when I am striving to find balance as a mama in my own life. I first met Leilani on a home visit when we first had our son.

Self-Care for Moms and Dads

The very best reason I can think of for investing time, energy, and money into self-care is that adult mindset and behaviour has a huge influence on the young people nearby. It is difficult to take care of ourselves the way we would like to because the demands of the world outside us never stop screaming.
